Yeah, this naming is news to me too.
Though I did hear of the weird bandwiths somewhere else before. Nvidia, wtf are you doing? 448-bit, seriously? Last gen wasn't bad enough with your silly 320-bit GPUs with 640mb of memory. 896mb... dear lord. There still has yet to be shown performance difference between 256-bit and 512-bit, let alone these abominations such as 320-bit, 384-bit, and now the king of the crap hill: the 448-bit. Bah, humbug!
Looks like it will be a killer graphics card. I am only waiting for the time when Crysis will be playable at max at a decent resolution like 1680x1050 with like 60FPS with only one card. I can keep dreaming. :)

the D10U is more commonly known as the g200 (previously known as the g100) and the D9 cards would be the g92/94. they keep trying to make their naming scheme easier for the average consumer and its throwing off the enthusiasts who follow the rumors.
