NV35 is out, NV 40 is due November 2002. Apparently.

NV30 = GeForce FX 5800
NV31 = GeForce FX 5600
NV34 = GeForce FX 5200

Actually, all of these use the NV30 chip.

NV31 and NV34 are reduced-function-silicon
versions of the NV30 with significantly lower transistor
counts (and far less powwr dissipation )

*BZZT* Wrong! The NV31 and NV34 are entirely different pieces of
silicon than the NV30. While they all do share a few common
functional elements (hence the reason why they are all the GeForce FX
family), the chips are drasitcally different.

The *ONLY* NV30 chip is the one used in the 5800/5800 Ultra.
