Default NVIDIA to rebrand G80 as supercomputer chip

With a new brand and a new line of memory-heavy, HPC-specific add-in boards, the company can focus strictly on the G80's HPC potential while simultaneously minimizing all of the graphics-specific hardware baggage that the device carries from its origins in the gaming market. Furthermore, this tactic is probably going to work, because right now there isn't a coprocessor that can beat the G80 in in terms of performance per watt and flexibility while coming even close to it in price.
