The meaning behind Nvidia GPU numbers?

I read that when it comes to AMD Radeon cards is as follows:

"First Number: Generation of the GPU
Second Number: Performance class of the GPU
Third Number: Sub class of the GPU or Inner class performance
Forth Number: Used to inflate the 'awesomeness' of the product with the masses. In example, HD 6950 is larger than GTX 580 and therfore must be more awesome right"

And as with other graphics cards?


for example

GTX 760

What are these numbers?

  1. Best answer
    Generation, then class, then random 0 or 5.
  2. Same as what you have written, if you've understood than enough, then that's correct.
  3. Generation, Performance Level, Model.

    So a GTX460 will be faster than a GTX620.

    Unrelated, but does this work with Intel Processors too? like for example, an i5-44xx vs i5-27xx?
