We heard faintly about two new codenames of the G8x family; G84 and G86. Information is really scarce at this point of time so take this with a pinch of salt. We guess G86 is GeForce 8600 while G84 is GeForce 8300 or even 8400, probably a move to make things more straight forward. The process technology for G84 and G86 is unclear yet so it could either be 80nm or 65nm but a safe bet is 80nm since it is slated for Q1 release. There will be 6 SKUs at least for the G80, G84 and G86 series.
