The latest NVIDIA 9 Series Cards should be called only 8900?

Tweaktown muses about the latest NVIDIA 9600GT, 9800GTX and 9800GX2 and their performance improvement over the 8800 cards and suggests that NVIDIA did make a too big jump in product numbering.

Quote from the review: "NVIDIA choosing to move their latest line-up of cards to a whole new next generation naming scheme would have to be one of the worst things we’ve seen from a company in recent years. Having now looked at the 9600GT, 9800GTX and 9800GX2 we have a fairly good idea of what exactly we’re dealing with, and an e-mail we received the other day really sealed the deal. Anyone who has really been keeping up with the latest models will tell you the same thing. NVIDIA should have chosen to move from the 8800 series of cards to the 8900 series to avoid any confusion in people thinking that this was going to be the next big thing for graphics cards."
