Further to initial reports in Q4'08, more evidence has come forth which supports NVIDIA's intent to move all of its lower/mid-range GPU lineups across to the GTxxx naming scheme.

A channel vendor of Acer and Packard Bell PCs has advertised three of its latest desktop PCs with entry-level GeForce graphics cards under the new naming; a GeForce G100 which carries 512MB memory, GT120 with 1GB and GT130 which supposedly carries a whopping 1.5GB memory (surely they're mistaken here?!).

To help clear up some confusion, it's been said that the G100 is likely a rebrand of the 9400 GT, whilst the G120 and G130 are 9500GT and 9600GSO cards.

Later on in the month we're expecting to see G92-powered cards re-branded with "GTS 1x0" tags, so we'll be scratching our heads for a while yet.

Thanks to Tech Connect for the insight.
