There are quite a bit of confusion over the codenames of NVIDIA G7x series
especially when NVIDIA decided to drop the NV4x codenames. If you remember for
GeForce 6800, there are already 3 codenames tagged to it; NV40, NV41 and NV42.
NV40 is the one where all the GeForce 6800 series started from but it is
AGP-based interface. NV41 is the stripped down version of NV40 with 12 pipes and
5 vertex shaders but PCI-E based interface and NV42 is the 0.11 version of NV41.
For the case of G70, it is 0.11 based and PCIe interface and G71 is the shrunk
down version (90nm) of G70. From our sources, there is a G73 for mainstream
segment to replace the current 6600 series while G72 is meant for value segment
to replace 6200 series. Information is scarce at this point of time so take this
lightly.
