Nvidia Gives Fermi GF100 Official GPU Names

Up until now, we've been referring to the next-generation Nvidia GPU technology as Fermi or GF100. Today, Nvidia revealed the official marketing name for the new architecture.

Nvidia will be skipping the entire 300-range of model numbers as the Fermi-based cards will come in at the 400-level. As revealed in an Nvidia twitter update:

"Fun Fact of the Week: GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 470 will be the names of the first two GPUs shipped based on our new GF100 chip!"

Read more here for our exploration into the GF100.

    GeForce GTX 300 series are for sure reserved for a renaming party ...

    Looking at the power requirements for the cards I think Nvidia missed a trick.

    Top of the range Incinerator!

    Medium range Inferno!

    Entry level The Toaster!

    LMAO Now the GTX 300 series will be released later as their "mainstream" cards, and they'll perform lesser than the GTX 200 series does now. *smirk*

    I can't wait for Fermi to finally be released, but goodness gracious nVidia. Enough with the retarded renaming crap already.

    "Fun fact of the week: We have no idea when these cards will launch, also we hope you have invested in multiple power supplies to go along with your multiple new lcd displays for our proprietary Physx and 3D Vision technology!"
