In August 2009, I had an interview with Roy Taylor, then serving as nVidia's main TWIMTBP guy [The Way Its Meant To Be Played]. Most of the nVidia exec team wasn't happy with the way how the renaming went and it was decided to rename the complete new line-up into something much simpler.
When the company launched its OEM parts for desktops and notebooks with GT120, G210 and GT220, we thought that renaming won't be happening - but we were wrong. According to information at hand, all of the newly released parts will fit under one banner, with GeForce being the cornerstone brand, followed by a number in hundreds. All of the parts belonging to GT200 [NV60-NV65] series of chips will be renamed into GeForce 2xx. GeForce 9 series [NV55] becomes GeForce 1xx and the upcoming GT300 [NV70] series will simply be named GeForce 3xx [example: 360 and 380].
