Why not GT(X)?

Forgive my ignorance but I was wondering why I see so many threads to do with the GT, but next to none about the GTX? I assumed the GTX was way better, and not too pricey. Or am I missing something?

Thank you

GTX = older G80 GPU Vs GT = newer G92 GPU.

I see.

So what would be the full nake of the newer G92? Sorry, I'm a bit ignorant as I've been out of the loop for a while now.

In the beginning, there was G80, which came in the form of 8800GTS in 320 and 640MB flavors, the 8800GTX, which was faster, and the 8800Ultra, which is the baddest mo****a on the block. Later, nVidia rehashed G80 and brought us G92, which powers the 8800GT and 8800GTS 512 flavor. The new GTS performs about the same as a GTX and can be overclocked up to the Ultras range, but suffers a bit at extreme resolutions due to its smaller memory interface (384bit vs 256bit). The 8800GT is a GTS with a few of the stream processors disabled, however this has only a small effect on performance, so most people have been getting 8800GT and OCing them to get the best bang for their buck.
