Nvidia quietly launches GeForce 100-series GPUs

Nvidia quietly launches GeForce 100-series GPUs

Nvidia's GeForce GT 120 is almost identical to the GeForce 9500 GT, except for a slight change in clock speed.

Nvidia’s recent rebadging exercises haven’t proved particularly popular with either the press or consumers recently, which could explain why the company hasn’t made a big fanfare about its latest rebranding scheme. The company has surreptitiously already launched its new GeForce 100-series, resulting in the GeForce GTS 150, GT 130, GT 120 and G100.

What’s particularly interesting, however, is that we only found out about the cards by browsing through Nvidia’s website, which lists the new 100-series cards. There were no press calls to discuss the new cards, no hints and not even a press release was issued. This could explain why only a handful of websites picked up the news when it was released earlier this month.

Unlike the recent GeForce GTS 250 rebrand, which resulted in a retail card, the GeForce 100-series cards will only be available to OEMs. As such, there’s little chance that upgraders looking for a new graphics card will be misled by the new names, although VR-Zone has dissected the INF files from various recent ForceWare drivers to ascertain that the new GPUs are still based on Nvidia’s ageing G92, G94, G96 and G98 cores.

Let’s start with the G92-based GeForce GTS 150, which features a dual-slot cooler, a 738MHz GPU clock and 128 stream processors clocked at 1,836MHz. This is accompanied by 1GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1GHz (2GHz effective). Bizarrely, these specs are identical to those of the recently-released GeForce GTS 250, which isn’t going to help Nvidia’s recent rebranding scheme to make any more sense.

Next we have the GeForce GT 130, which has a 500MHz GPU clock, 48 stream processors clocked at 1,250MHz and 768MB of 500MHz (1GHz effective) DDR2 memory. After that, there’s the GeForce GT 120 with 32 stream processors running at 1,400MHz with a GPU core clock of 500MHz and 512MB of 500MHz (1GHz effective) DDR2 memory. This card is very similar to the GeForce 9500 GT, which is otherwise the same, but has a 550MHz GPU core clock. Finally, the GeForce G100 sits at the bottom with just eight stream processors running at 1,400MHz, a 567MHz core clock and 512MB of 500MHz (1GHz effective) DDR2 memory.

Had you spotted the GeForce 100-series anywhere, and is it fair enough for Nvidia to rebrand its old GPUs with new names on OEM-only graphics cards? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.

A quick peek on Apple's website will show the GT 120 and 130s being used in the current iMacs. Rumour has it that they may be mobile versions of the GPUs, but Apple 'aint tellin'.

i think the name changing is only for the OEM market is because this will simplify their upgrade choices from 100 to 200 series. instead of from 9000 to 200 series.

so:
GT130 = 9600GT
GT120 = 9500GT
G100 = 9400

So wait, the GTS150 is exactly identical to the GTS250? I wonder how they justified that one internally.

GT120 = 9500GT
G100 = 9400


The GT130 appears to replace the 9600GSO (The second generation one to makes things even more confusing). The 9600GT has 64 stream processors as opposed to the 48 in this card.

I really don't know what Nvidia are doing with the GTS150 though. This makes it sounds weaker to the GTS250 yet is identical?! Why not just have the GTS250 available to both oem and retail.

Also on a slightly seperate note (but still related to the name changing) I wish nvidia would sort out their mobility lineup. I mean ATI for example have recently launched the HD4850/70 mobility chips, these are identical to the desktop parts albeit down clocked to meet the cooling requirements - the point I am trying to make here is that ATI's mobility lineup matches their desptop lineup in terms of name and specs (clocks aside). Nvidia on the other hand appear to have named their mobility series completely randomly and in some cases without thought.

Examples:

9600mGT - A downclocked version of the desktop 9500GT as opposed to it logically being a mobility variant of the 9600GT.
9700mGT - A clocked version of the 9600mGT (why?!)
9700mGTS - A mobility variant of the desktop Gen2 9600GSO (so completely different to the GT)
9800mGT (GS) - A newer version of the 8800mGTX which has 96 stream processors
9800mGTS - A 64 stream card which appears to be a downclocked desktop 9600GT (despite being clocked higher than the 9800mGT it is actually slower in certain scenarios)

9800mGTX - 112 stream downclocked 8800GT/9800GT desktop card
GTX280m - A G92 based 128 stream 9800GTX

This lineup is so confusing when compared to the desktop lineup (which isn't much better) it does make the consumer think what am I actually buying?!

The GTS150 is the GTS250 which is the 9800GTX+ which is the 9800GTX which is the 8800GTS 512mb.

It uses the same G92 core as your 8800GT (sorry 9800GT, sorry no GTS240 ...... ARGH!)

Bloody hell, I am starting to hate Nvidia too! And I would say I was a pretty big fanboi before I got an ATi card.

ATI are catching up I have to say, maybe not in statistics, but in popularity they have shot up in the last 4-6 months.

This is getting stupid IMO.. They should release an additional 30 cards with 50mhz clock differences from each other while they're at it

Agree with DarkLord here.

GTS 150 = GTS 250
GTS 151 = GTS 150 + 50MHz
And then to make things more nVidia-ish:

GTS 152 = GTS 130 - 50MHz

I like their tactics. Confuse the customer to sell more old stuff... :|

I noticed that in one of Aldi's delightful Medion PCs, the spec states Nvidia GT 140 (512mb).
The GT 140 must be a 9800 GT

Absolutely agreed. Who cares what they're called like? That just helps in referencing your card's specs to your friends or whoever. Personally, I only look at the # of stream processors (keeping in mind the difference between the ATI and the NVIDIA ones), memory size, bus bit width and clock. Do you really need anything else?

As a sidenote, I think what NVIDIA is doing right now really sucks. I've respected them for lots of years, I even have a gtx260 (see? short way of making you see the specs of my card) as a primary gpu and a 9800gt (which is a 8800gt anyway) as a physx gpu (though I'm still waiting for more games to support the API, which I believe will be very popular in about a year) because I like the direction in which they're going (except making the physx API proprietary, that's just retarded). But confusing less knowing consumers, who will just see a name, have absolutely no more idea of what they're buying than "oooh that sounds like it's gonna be powerful for my games", is downright unfair and nasty. Not cool, and the perfect way to lose customers.

C'mon NVIDIA, go back to your old ways. You used to be a cool company making cool tech, now you're just bullying people, and even supporters like me are getting fed up about it.

Technically you are bang on, however the clarity and honesty of a company's communication with its customers, is indicative of how it would respond, in the event of any problems with its products e.g. overheating cards! It's a shame, Nvidia is jeopardising the opportunity that its recent price cuts of the GTX 260 has created. The close performance between it and the 4870 1GB, mean that for many buyers the choice of purchase will come down to brand preference.

Yea, that's exactly my problem, its not the revising of the cards, it's just so much unnecessary confusion where if you don't keep up-to-date on it on a daily basis now, you easily lose track of what cards are which previous cards.

I honestly preferred it when they had the 9 series as mainstream and the 200 series as the super-high end.

I think there is to much crying on this topic. :'(

I think what has happened is that they are in between two industries CPUs and Games, they have taken on the gaming idea of reusing and milking the cow out of their products. While they can only advance in technology so fast, like the CPU industry. So they freshing up their line of products to continue a steady level of sales with their fast pace relations to games. Thats a marketing tactic.

They have 14 Corporate locations around the world. When a company is that big, the only way to keep it running is focusing on the bottom line. Changing the name works on sales to the masses. Most of the people out there want to "FEEL" (Instead of Know)they have a new computer, and changing the name gives that to them.

I would not categorizes the attitude of the "Marketing Department" with the "Service Department". The service expected with help or warranty of product should be the same as always. Life Time Warranty!

I agree that changing the name to cards for the masses is taking advantage of the tech ignorant people out there. But in this case they did it for Mac, HP, Dell, ect who ever is using these cards to manufacture pre built computers. Mac or others do not want an old name attached to their graphics card in the specs of their brand new computer built for the shelves.
I don't expect that to ever change. Mac and others were the customer in this, and the customer I'm sure wanted the name change.

I don't know a large company that is not this way about their products. But like I have always said if you "REALLY" know the truth it will always be disappointing. :|
Goty 23rd March 2009, 18:38 Quote
My only rebuttals to that post are A) ATI seems to handle not renaming their products just fine (for the most part) and B) as for the lifetime warranty, the cards are warrantied by the board partners, not NVIDIA.

Goty, yyeeeaahhh I overlooked what I said, did not think or explain that all the way through. I was referring to this post of concern of recall or service.

Just make sure everyone knows I'm not Fanboy. :) I'm a fan of both brands I have two ATI's and one Nvidia Card. I buy based on specs. lol

I agree with you, and ATI has the better reputation right now with us. I believe Nvidia does better on the bottom line because of the name changes, even though to people like us it looks like dishonest business. They must have weighed the scale of pros and cons and said "Lets make more money." I have never seen a graph or the likes but I have noticed in my own investigation it looks as if the prebuilt computer companies have more of these Nvidia cards than ATI in them. There is no news with company quotes I can find, but I only can imagine they prefer the name changes for their computers.

Just makes good business since to me, not only in looking like new cards with new computers, but common people will understand that to upgrade in the future they need to move up from 100 to 200 or beyond.

Agreed. Someone call the WAAAHMBULANCE. If someone doesn't actively try to research an upgrade or ask for help to upgrade, they somewhat deserve to pay money for a 0-3% performance increase. It's 2009, there's a thing called the internet, and word of mouth. It doesn't take much effort to spend 1/2 hour reading the specs of a few GPU's to see what's an upgrade and what's not. .

That is assuming that the non-tech minded people actually understand what they are reading, terms like ROPs, shaders, SIMD etc are probably worse than double Dutch to most folk, more like triple Dutch with a generous topping of Mandarin! Need arbitary proof of the above, go onto a mainstream gaming site and see how many people still believe the PS3 kicks out 1.8 teraflops!

word of mouth? ha, got to forums other than bit-tech, or tech sites. This happened to a friend of mine, this was month prior to COD4 coming out, he was upgrading from a 1950XTX, he came to me and asked me what cards were the best buy at the time, I told him honestly the wasn't anything worth buying from ATI except another 1950XTX to crossfire, as for he'd have to wait awhile as the 8800gt was supposed to be coming out for 200, and don't look at anything less performance-wise. Now he goes over to his WOW playing buddies and they thoroughly convince him to buy an 8600gt simply because it an 8-series card therefore it should be better than what he has now, a couple weeks later guess who has a problem that they can't play call of duty. And I am sure word of mouth is a check mark under the pros column, when it comes to rebranding.
Elton 23rd March 2009, 23:14 Quote
Word of mouth is quite unreliable most of the time, it's almost always much better to ask a few people then research it yourself, I'd honestly find this totally acceptable except that unlike most name revisions(HD2900-HD3800), there's no modification or die shrinks involved, just the naming is different, if it were not so, It'd be perfectly acceptable to me.

But I will admit there is quite a bit of whining, which is to me fine, seeing as this is a horrible business practice just to trick customers into buying something.
LordPyrinc 23rd March 2009, 23:51 Quote
WTF? My last 3 cards have been NVidia, but I'm thinking about moving back to the ATI camp. This numbering scheme is crap. I really feel for the average consumer that gets duped because they dont realize that the rebranding and numbering of slower cards are being marketed without disclosing that they may be inferior to existing cards with a higher model number. That being said, I will definitely be doing my research the next time I upgrade. I'm just pissed with the current business practices. NVidia seems to be flooding the market with a morass of cards that one has to sift through to figure out which cards are actualy worth upgrading to.
knutjb 23rd March 2009, 23:58 Quote
Looks like Nvidia is scamming with more of their "Who's on first" routine. They make a good product but with the crazy renaming of their product lines top to bottom I can't be sure what I'm getting. AMD/ATI will likely be getting my cash when I buy a new card soon because I know and understand their naming scheme. The "best buy" isn't solely based on specs it also includes confidence in what you are buying and most buyers will be confused by Nvidia's recycling program. Time to fire the marketing guys...

What impresses me is that they've had the same card that's still lasted this long for almost 3 years. (8800GT)

I suppose renaming is really an non- issues. As long as they gets cheaper.
But it was the performance / price that is not getting along, that is why ATI made a come back.

This lineup is so confusing when compared to the desktop lineup (which isn't much better) it does make the consumer think what am I actually buying?!

well no matter what it makes naming conventions easier to understand for the general customer in terms of the OEM desktop GPUs.

Still I agree Nvidia still has some major issues with their mobile line, never realized it was that bad. ATI's Mobile cards suck but at least you know what your buying.

My Mobilty HD4850 begs to differ on your second point. The HD3xxx series mobility GPUs were a bit meh (didn't help that alot of them were coupled with the Turion CPU's) but the new HD4xxx series are excellent (in a way just like the desktop lineup), as pointed out the mobility HD4850 / HD4870 are simply downclocked versions of the desktop cards- they have the full feature set enabled.

With nvidia you know what you get as well, a slight variation of the 8800 Series:D

for the enthusiast market the whole rename game they are playing is horrible, but the enthusiast market is not the main cash cow, they make most of the money selling low end cards to oems and to consumers who got cheated by oems with integrated gpus.

Better ask yourself why Nvidia still doesn't have any new 'real' GPU core. They re branding their flagship of 2007, the G2xx core over and over again bringing nothing new to the table. It's the total lack of competition in the high end that causes this.

How fast do you think Nvidia will have new Gxxx GPU Core available when their earth rival Ati would bring out a GPU next month thats four times faster then the GTX295. I bet Nvidia already has the designs of their next gen GPU laying around somewhere for a year at least!

The fact is, that releasing new hardware now is useless because it would be totally overkill for the games out now and games to come. Dx10 is around for over two years and the games releases supporting DX10 can be counted on two hands. The only game that brings the hardware to the knee is Crysis. I say its because of the bad coding, or Crytec made a deal with GPU vendors to sell more expensive GPU hardware.

ATi is eventually going to reach HD9xxx series and i bet something similar this is going to happen. unless ATi remembers how pissed we are about the renaming. @Obiwan I think that "new" design doesnt exist. Watch the GTX300 series be just a higher clocked GTX200 series.

I hope ATi releases its 4890(x2) and it destroys gtx285's and 295's. Just to give nvidia a good kick in the face and make them actually TRY. For good measure start selling 4850's @ $85 like the 4830's lol

Seriously, lets be objective, just to run DirectX 11, Nvidia will require new architecture, because of the hardware tessellation and other new features. Nvidia has already spoken about how the next-gen cards will be a major jump in technology, through the adoption of MIMD processing, and the use of 40nm fabs. Of course, we will have wait until the first proper benchmarks, to verify how well the marketing message, translates into cold facts. The GT 200 cards may well be an enhanced version of their G92 core, but they still offered great performance, the trouble was ATI could offer comparable grunt for significantly less money. Nvidia can be very inscrutable, but outright liars, I think not.

I hope Nivida will think of something better then jam in a more memory, clock the memory higher, clock the core higher and enable a few more stream processors.

You can fool the consumer once or twice but after that the consumer will walk away from it. The bucket is almost full with all the 're batching' going on. Nvidia is fooling the consumer, and if the consumer hates on thing, its being fooled around with.
Xtrafresh 25th March 2009, 10:20 Quote
I actually see some sense in this, despite it being the 5th rebrand of the same core or so...

People argue that the OEMs are the customers in this case, which is not true. The OEMs also depend on customers, and for that target audience, things just got a lot better. They had a choice between 9xxx and 2xx, now, this changed to 1xx and 2xx. The target audience for OEMs is not likely to care enough to go find out about every single part in their new PC, they just want a package that works, so they need clear nomenclature.

The problem for reVidia is that it's taking flak for A) constant rebranding and B) unclear product lineup, but they cannot solve B without more A :)

For me personally, it doesn't matter much. With most of my friends though, if i ask what kind of videocard they have, they answer: "512mb". For them, these naming schemes are a disaster. The fact that performance and nomenclature are decoupled makes it very hard for people to even make a distinction between ATI and reVidia.

I really do wonder if these naming screwups are deliberate, or if they are just utterly uncoordinated about it.

This graphix card has a HDMI output in stead of the old S vidio output.and the card is quite compact ,possably derived from the mobile laptop range. OEM only at the moment.
Performance wise it plays Counter strike scource at 57-80 FPS without a glitch at 1280 x 1024 ,havent tried any other games yet.
cpu E7300 Duo 2.67ghz - 4 gig ram - blueray drive -.320 gig sata HD - latest fad small form factor case.
