this renaming thing is causing confusion about the actual product performance relative to another.

aka a lot of salesmen like to smoke aunties:

8800gt < 9100gt = GOOD DEAL

This is crap... Nvidia is really screwed big time by AMD and are in a major mess... Think this will be pissing their partners off again with the boxes that they have been printing for 8800GT, then 9800GT, and now a new name...

Heheh! These guys are funny. I really hope AMD's rv870 will be really really good and they teach NV another lesson!

I think then, that they will start naming their cards with mathematical equations, so nobody would know what they are buying! LOL!

Everybody wins but the consumer , this seems right .People that don't know anything about computers or very little they know basic things like my computer is made from parts by intel and nvidia , few people know about ATI and AMD so having this market and the biggest share market in mainstream and high end i think they can do antyhing they want , they could sell us 8600gt's as gtx300 and people would buy it , majority of the planet is composed of stupid people , the masses , the slaves of jobs and TV brainwashing , they can do antyhing they like and no one can stop them , just like intel and microsoft.

All thanks to the mass media, which includes review sites that takes "free candies" from the highest bidder to market their products. The consumer wins when theres real competition, however we are still entangled in this capitalistic society.
