NVIDIA may be taking heed to criticism surrounding the naming schemes it uses for its SKUs, according to this story, from TG Daily.

NVIDIA to reform naming scheme of GPU offerings?

It is suggested that additional solutions from its GT200 series may be forthcoming on October 15th, whilst NVIDIA's GeForce 9000 series shall then be introduced as G100, GT120, GT130, GT140 and GT150 parts. This will, effectively, transition 55nm GeForce 9000 series parts to NVIDIA's improved naming schematic.

NVIDIA's GeForce 8000 series, it is mentioned, is being phased out.

It is additionally believed that when NVIDIA's 45nm GPUs are launched in either Q1 or Q2 2009, NVIDIA will use its GTX designator for enthusiast level GPUs and the GT, GS and G monikers for performance, mainstream and entry-level parts, respectively.
