Nvidia Continues to Tease GeForce RTX 40-Series GPU Announcement

GeForce Beyond Teaser

Nvidia has released a few new teasers on Twitter for its upcoming GeForce Beyond event on September 20. The latest teasers show us a dual monitor GeForce-themed gaming setup, with what appears to be a phone number written down on a sticky note and an advanced mathematical equation on another. The GeForce Beyond event will announce the long-awaited arrival of Nvidia's new Ada RTX 40-series GPUs.

This latest teaser from Nvidia is more detailed, potentially hiding even more clues as to what is coming. It showcases a dual monitor gaming setup, color coordinated in Nvidia's green color theme, with a glowing "Holocron" to the right of the setup. 

On one of the monitors is a sticky note with what appears to be a phone number written down on it. The number is "(208) 629-7538". Calling the number results in a voicemail asking, "Tell us, how fast would you like to go?" Beyond that cryptic message, the numbers could potentially hint at Ada Lovelace GPU specifications. 

For instance, one rumored die size of AD102 is 628mm square, and the middle number in the sequence is 629. Perhaps the rumors are off, and AD102 is a 629mm square die. Other potential ideas are that 208 could relate to clock speed (2.08GHz) or relative speedup (2.08X), and 7538 might be the transistor count (75.38 billion), but those seem a stretch. We don't have long to wait until the RTX 40 series' announcement to find out the facts.

On the same GeForce-themed gaming setup, Nvidia released another teaser showcasing the white piece of paper on the desk. Upon inspection, it is visibly apparent this is some advanced mathematical equation, which undoubtedly points towards English mathematician Ada Lovelace, which is the RTX 40-series codename.

Ada Lovelace was born in the 1800s and is renowned for her work on the Analytical engine. She was the first person to recognize the potential in machine code for more than just pure mathematical calculations. As a result, she is regarded as the world's first computer programmer.

Nvidia's GeForce Beyond event will air on September 20th, at 8 PM PT on Tuesday, during the GTC 2022 conference. We expect Nvidia will announce the details of its brand new Ada Lovelace GPU architecture at the event and potentially some new consumer-focused gaming GPUs such as the RTX 4090.

    Yeah, the teaser indeed hints at the 'Numbers of Bernoulli for the Analytical Engine' as proposed by Ada Lovelace.

    The numbers shown on a sticky note may refer to the specs of the AD102 GPU. This could be the size of the die (629 mm²) and the number of transistors (75.38B). The first number is not clear, although some believe it may be 2.08x higher performance than GA102.

    Apple's M1 is faster than this GPU.

    Nvidia owns it. If you call it you get a recorded message that says, "Tell us, how fast do you want to go" and then there is a beep that queues you to leave a message.

    I'm fairly certain the 208 indicates how many will be available on launch day, 629 is the base wattage, and 7538 is obviously the MSRP.

    Because an ARM Chip can be compared to a Graphics card......
    Even if you referred to x86, you still are comparing slimmed down apples to artillerly sized oranges.

    ARM ≠ x86_64 they are completely different architecture instruction sets for completely different purposes.

    Even though this has nothing to do with a graphics card anymore but people keep comparing the M1 with regular CPUs because of fancy apple images...
    Ask yourself why we haven't put x86 chips into phones and other low power devices, once you've searched the web a few minutes you will find out quickly why.

    Nvidia showed it's true colors over the last couple years. Communist comes to mind. Restricting mining on their cards? Are we renting their gpu's or buying them? And for the gamers...maybe they don't like your game in the future and you can't play it on their cards. Far fetched? I don't think so. Not even a penny of mine will go to Nvidia ever again. Team red is the way to go. They even came out with a statement saying you bought our card and you can use it how you see fit.
