(NVIDIA) renamed GPU

In these days of CES, where manufacturers announce rename old graphics cards to make news, we will return in two news, the practices of manufacturers of graphics cards. NVIDIA’s finish, after AMD (formerly ATI).

Surprisingly, and contrary to popular belief, NVIDIA has started playing with names that there is little time with the GeForce 9. Previously, the company was relatively honest with the names of its graphics cards, at least in the desktop versions, where the only “scam” is the GeForce 4 MX, which is actually a simple evolution of the GeForce 2 GTS. But with the series 9, in 2008, everything is spoiled.

• The GeForce 9400 GT is a 8500 GT.
• The GeForce 9500 GT is a 8600 GT.
• The GeForce 9600 GSO is a 8800 GS.
• The GeForce 9600 GSO 512 is less powerful than the 9600 GSO.
• The GeForce 9800 GT is a 8800 GT.
• The GeForce 9800 GTX is a 8800 GTS 512.
• The GeForce G 100 is a 8400 GS.
• The GeForce GT 120 is a 8600 GT.
• The GeForce GT 130 is a 9600 GSO 512.
• The GeForce GTS 150 is a 9800 GTX +.
• The GeForce 205 is functionally a 8300 GS.
• The GeForce G 210 is functionally a 8400 GS.
• The GeForce GT 220 is functionally a 9600 GSO 512.
• The GeForce GT 230 is a 9600 GT.
• The GeForce GT 240 is functionally a 8800 GS.
• The GeForce GTS 240 is a 8800 GT.
• The GeForce GTS 250 is a 9800 GT.
• The GeForce 310 is functionally a 8400 GS is one billion and 210.

In the cards for the mobile world, NVIDIA has not played too much on the words before the GeForce 9, even if certain terms are unfair. Note that some cards are grouped together simply due to a difference of low frequency (less than 50 MHz) and an identical architecture. The cards listed as functionally identical are in fact based on the architecture GT (DirectX 10.1) which, in practice, performance close to G8x or G9x if the number of stream processors is the same.

• The GeForce 8600M GS is a 8500 GT.
• The GeForce 8700M GT is slower than 8600 GT.
• The GeForce 8800M GTS is a 9600 GT.
• The GeForce 8800M GTX is a 8800 GS.
• The GeForce 9300M GS is a 8400M G.
• The GeForce 9500M GS is a 8600M GS.
• The GeForce 9600M GS is a 8600M GS.
• The GeForce 9600M GT is a 8600M GT, two times less powerful than GeForce 9600 GT.
• The GeForce 9650M GS is a 8700M GT.
• The GeForce 9650M GT and 9700M GT are two times less powerful than the 9600 GT.
• The GeForce 9700M GTS is a 9600 GSO 512.
• The GeForce 9800M GS is a 8800M GTS, 9600 GT alias.
• The GeForce 9800M GTS is a 8800M GTS, 9600 GT alias.
• The GeForce 9800M GT is a 8800M GTX, 8800 GS alias.
• The GeForce 9800M GTX is a 8800 GT.
• The G 105M GeForce 8400M G is a
• The G 110M GeForce 8400M GS is one.
• The GT 120M GeForce 8600M GT is one.
• The GeForce 130M GT is a 8700M GT.
• The GeForce GTS 150M and 160M are 8800M GTS, 9600 GT alias.
• The GeForce 210M G is functionally a 8400M GS.
• The GeForce GT 230M and 240M are functionally 9700M GTS, aka 9600 GSO 512.
• The GeForce GTS 250M and 260M are 8800M GTX, 8800 GS alias.
• The GeForce GTX 260M is a 8800 GT.
• The GeForce GTX 280M is a 8800 GTS 512.
• The GeForce 305M is functionally a 8400M GS.
• The GeForce 310M is functionally a 8400M GT.
• The GeForce 325M GT is functionally a 9600 GSO 512.
• The GeForce GTS 350M and 360M are functionally 8800M GTS, 8800 GS alias.

As we see, the list is long and while NVIDIA has started his short game quite late, the company was well caught and “industrialized” the name change.
