Default Nvidia rebranding the Geforce 9 rebrands

We’ve learned that Nvidia might once more rebrand its entry level cards. It is getting kind of ridiculous as this has already happened once when Nvidia renamed the 8800-series to 9800 and now they want to do a similar thing at the low-end.

The card that we know as Geforce 9300 based on the G96 will be branded as G100. This reminds me of a Matrox product called G100, a card that came out some 10 years ago and could accelerate Direct 3D, but not OpenGL.

please choose one name and stick with it; it allows buyers to know what technology generation is behind each chip, we assume 8000 series is older than 9000 and 9000 older than GTx00; so why complicate things by renaming existing products.

the 8800 GS is a fine example of how it should not be done, the 9600 GSO rename doesn't make it more current or speedier, it is, in fact, worse than 9600 GT... same goes for 8800 GT (9800 GT) rename which doesn't make much sense... in fact, the whole 9 series is defunct when it comes to naming scheme, as there is no real high end chip ( 9800 GTX was not faster than 8800 GTX) , has no low-end, they are all renamed 8 series, and we have one mid-range, 9600 GT. so they invented/renamed a whole product range to fit around one new product... kudos.
