Idea for GPU naming system  

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Eventually, AMD is going to run out of numbers in their current naming system. With the 7000 series expected in Q4 of 2011, the end of the 4 digit naming system is quickly approaching. To fix this problem, here is an idea:

Keep in mind that this is not a decimal system, but use the decimal as a divider.


1.1
1st series, least powerful

1.10
1st series, more powerful than 1.1

9.99
9th series, more powerful than anything 1-98 in that series.

...and so on.

What do you guys think?

There is a reason why they don't do this, and it's not because they are stupid or that they haven't thought of it. The "great marketing minds" at AMD/Nvida know it's boring, and people would be turned away from the cards and look for cards that sound cooler and more powerful

Let me call AMD to pass this along.

Wouldn't it just be easier to start anew by upping the HD acronym? You know...HD2, HD3, then HD4 (or II, III, IV) and so on? That would last for some years.

This isn't kindergarten. Knowing how to count just isn't cool anymore.
