I don't know what the hell they're gonna do, but I hope they don't go and introduce a product line that is in the 2000 range. (Like the x2800xtx BigJediGuy suggested). It would already convolute a confusing ATI card naming system.

I don't think it really matters. To me, seeing an nVidia 8800GTX and 8800 Platinum Edition makes no difference.

You think the whole GS/GT/GTX/whatever thing is confusing? Try all the different letterings for car models. It's a whole new language. :p

But atleast Nvida has (so far) been able to use a logical naming system. (Geforce 2, 3, 4, FX5000, 6000, 7000, and now 8000). ATi would be going back down the ladder if they used '2000'.

hehe imagined if they made an x9800xtx and people got that confused with the old 9800's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_R600

Overview which will most likely be the names of the cards with r600, r610 and r630 chipsets..

What, like using Radeon X300 etc and Radeon X1300 etc wasn't already a step down from Radeon 7000? :p

I think the whole X2000 thing makes sense. 7500s, 9200s, 9500s, 9600s, 9800s, no letters or anything. Then the Xs X100s, all the way up to X850 Then the X1Ks, X1200, X1600s, X1300s, and of course the X1900s ATI works its way up in the Xs until they start hitting X9800s and then they move on to something new.

No, they would still be going up. I don't know if its entirely official, but this is the way i understand ATI's card naming. Once ATI topped out the Radeon 9 series, they were out of numbers unless they wanted to go to 10xxx number ratings, which would lead to really long names, just think if the X800XT was called to 10800XT. So to make it simpler they went with the "X" series. The "X" stands for 10, just like it does in Mac OSX. In the X1k cards, its there 11 series cards, and in the X2k cards, it will be there 12 series cards.
