NVIDIA_G94.DEV_0626.1 = “NVIDIA GeForce GT 130”
NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0646.1 = “NVIDIA GeForce GT 120”

Remember that report regarding Nvidia’s plan of renaming its current graphics cards? Well it’s true and, courtesy of the recently-released GeForce 178.15 driver we now know what to expect from the Green Graphics Goblin.

These suggest that the G92-powered cards (GeForce 9800 models) will be renamed to GeForce GTS 1×0, while the G94 and G96 cards (GeForce 9600, 9500s) will be known as GeForce GT 1×0. This new naming scheme, which should help with making Nvidia’s card offer easier to grasp, is expected to be introduced in about two weeks.
