NVIDIA cancels GeForce 9800 GT rebranding

Posted on Thursday, March 12 2009 @ 19:01:46 CET by

DailyTech claims NVIDIA will not go through with its plan to rebrand the GeForce 9800 GT to GeForce GTS 240. The site claims frustrated add-in board (AIB) partners put the GPU maker under pressure.
Instead, NVIDIA is telling its customers to focus on three cards using the 9800 GT name. Besides the standard version, there is a reduced power version of the 9800 GT and the 9800 GT OC version.

The original 65nm 9800 GT used the same original G92 chip as the 8800 GT and had the exact same specifications. A 55nm die shrink resulted in a G92b chip, which NVIDIA used as well in the 9800 GTX+ -- this has also come under controversy for being rebranded as the GTX 280M despite not using a GT200 chip.
