Industry sources told TG Daily that while the 8000 series is being phased out, all 55 nm 9000-series GPUs will carry a G100-series name. By the end of 2008, Nvidia will be offering today’s 9000 series as G100, GT120, GT130, GT140 and GT150 models.

When the 2009 45 nm GPUs arrive, which seems to be the case around Q1 or Q2, Nvidia will have fully transitioned to the new branding structure: Enthusiast GPUs will be integrated into the GTX200-series, performance GPUs into the GT200-series, mainstream GPUs into the GS200-series and entry-level products into the G200-series.

The new branding should clear up some of the confusion in Nvidia’s product lineup today.

8800GT and 8800 GTS 512mb was released first. Nvidia rebranded it to 9800 GT and 9800 GTX. Now they are rebranding to GT ###. Rebranding old products is an easy way to create more sales because most people don't know that it's actually an old chip with a new name.

In 2009, their new naming scheme will be:

GTX ### - enthusiast (eg. most expensive, usually $400+)
GT ### - performance (eg. $200+, 9800 GTX)
GS ### - mainstream (eg. $100 - $200, 9600 GT)
G ### - entry (eg. under $100, 9500GT)

GPUs are a lot like cars now apparently, with a lot of stupid trim levels with obscure letters.
