Maybe they'll switch back to single digit form like back in the day... Geforce 10.

Everybody likes fancy names novadays. Me too . Even the processors are often called by their cores, not numbers.

So how about scrapping the whole numeral names altogether? If I'd work at NVIDIA I'd propose smthng like that:

gForce L (light, for starters)
gForce V (visual, for light editing-gaming)
gForce E (elite)
gForce X (xtreme)

I mean, with all their why 8800GT overpowers 8800GTS (g80) and all the other name-mess, it would be cool. Oh well, I guess we'll just see how boring they'll be.

Ha, it would be less confusing to new customers than the naming scheme they have now.

yeah roman numerals would be cool, to bad the 9 series wasn't like that, GeForce IX ultra, sounds better then 9800.

They should make it very clear and simple for the n00bs....
Something like:
gForce Good (Cheapest)
gForce Better than good. (Cheap)
gForce Great (Cheaper)
gForce Better than great. (Moderately Priced)
gForce Amazing (Pricey)
gForce Spectacular (There goes my 401k)
gForce HOLY **** (Now I can't put my kids through college.)
