I haven't seen this in "News", if I missed it apologies.

Nvidia has informed their partners about the change in naming for the upcoming GT200 series today. Previously, the marketing name for GT200 is GeForce 9900 series when launched but now it has been changed to GeForce GTX 200 series. GeForce 9900 GTX is now GeForce GTX 280 and GeForce 9900 GTS is now GeForce GTX 260. Nvidia has decided to launch them slightly earlier to coincide with RV770 launch which is around third week of June. However, Nvidia plans to show the GeForce GTX 280 card behind doors at Computex.

Apparently it's a Fudzilla rumour...

Why not drop "GTX" while they're at it...
"nVIDIA GeForce 280 1GB" would be just fine and dandy.

Maybe GTX now means high-end, with GTX 280, 260, 240 corresponding to the GTX, GTS, GT of the old nomenclature respectively.
Maybe GTS now means mid-range/mainstream, GT would now mean lower-mid, and GS meaning entry-level.
