    AMD marketing tactic for having a higher number than NVIDIA GPUs seems to be bothering NVIDIA, so NVIDIA is trying to trademark numbers in an attempt to block AMD's Navi RX3080.

    The Trademark goes not only for 3080 but also 4080 and 5080 numbers too.

    It would be rather stupid of AMD to just use NVIDIAs numbering scheme and one up it. Makes total sense for NVIDIA to try to safe their future numbers. And AMD would totally do it too, they are already doing it with their AM4 chipsets for no particular reason. People buy CPUs and then a matching chipset, they don't buy a chipset because it has a higher number.

    Lots of clueless consumers who may think a RX 3080 might be a successor to RTX 2080, so can understands NVs position. Its like cheap Samsung knock-offs branded Samsun, etc.

    AMD has been calling their cards RX a lot longer than NVIDIA has been using RTX. If anything, NVIDIA is stepping on AMD's naming scheme.

    AMD has a much smaller market share than Nvidia, so the latter would not benefit from similar naming schemes. Both sides have equal, justifiable reason to use RX or RTX (Radeon X vs Ray Tracing X which is relevantly represented by the RTX moniker and is a close evolution of the GTX name) and I am sure the courts would agree. But ripping off the logical numbering progression of competitors product lines (of both Nvidia and Intel, ie z370 vs x370) looks like a desperate attempt to ride off the greater market recognition of their products.

    In all objectivity, it's so damn confusing, we're gonna have RX3080 and RTX3080 ?! come on.
    AMD released 6 months ago the RX 590, how the hell does it end up so close to Nvidia naming convention now?

    AMD had the HD2000 - HD9000 series....then went to the R5/R7/R9 crap and then RX400 and RX500 series. ATI also had the Radeon 8000 and 9000 series.

    AMD is releasing the RX5700 in July.

    They aren't copying NVidia. NVidia actually got their "naming convention" from 3DFx..... ATI also used a similar "naming convention" prior to NVidia.

    I still don't get why they can't five their chips proper names, since the cards do have them anyway.
    And there I thought, searching for things that make you easy to recognise as a brand / product is the way you want to go, not both using just "numbers" to identify their products... I guess I misunderstood this concept in marketing, seemingly they want to both have four digit numbers without any true way to discern themselves without reading into the matter.
