err, isn't this exactly what ATI did by renaming the radeon DDR64 to the "7500"
I mean, new name, no new features right? I know I was misled!

it would prolly floor their marketing departments to find out that pimple faced 15 year olds with dayglo skin DO know the difference. Unfortunatly, most of their parents, and your parents/grandparents haven't got a clue! and will be burned into buying a product that isnt at all what they think it is, for a little less money, when most wouldv'e gladly paid the extra for what they thought they were getting
well, they did clock the 7500 quite a bit higher than the 64ddr.
