Last week NVIDIA said it intends to simplify its product lineup but if this rumour from FUD Zilla is true the firm didn't really succeed. The site says the new flagship, codenamed GT200, D10U-30 and D10U-20, will be called GeForce GTX 280. This is the card that some sites referred to as GeForce 9900 GTX.

FUD Zilla also reckons the card many believed would end up as the GeForce 9900 GT will now be called GeForce GTX 260.
The launch is scheduled for week 25 and it should take place between 16th and 20th. The name comes after Roy Tailor the Vice President of The way its meant to be played said that Nvidia’s names got a bit to complicated.

We remember that John Byrne a Vice president of graphic said the same as ATI lost its XT and PRO suffixes in its names. We believe that Nvidia learned from ATI that this actually did help and therefore they are doing the same, the bigger number means better, at east in their three digit brands.
