Nvidia's Detonator 45.23 drivers reveal something the company might not have wanted us to know yet: the names of three new graphics chips it has yet to launch.

Listed among all the supported products are the GeForce FX 5200 SE, 5600 SE and 5900 SE, Xbit Labs reports.

The 5600 SE has emerged before, but the presence of the other SE parts, suggest Nvidia plans a whole family of them to sit alongside the regular GeForce FX chips and the Ultra variants. The SEs appear to be 'value' versions of the standard parts - lower priced versions targeting the same enthusiast, performance and mainstream sectors Nvidia is aiming the 5900, 5600 and 5200 at, respectively.

The 5200 SE recently turned up on a Nvidia roadmap pegged for a second half of 2003 release, around the same time as the NV36, which will ship as the GeForce FX 5700. However, since that part isn't mentioned in the drivers, its arrival may come later. We've seen mid-November listed as the likely ship-date.

Interestingly, said roadmap doesn't mention the 5600 SE or the 5900 SE by name. ®
