In just a few days, Nvidia will unveil their mainstream products based on the Pascal architecture. Under the codename GP104 and GP106, Nvidia is preparing the arrival of approximately five different products. GP104 is the more high-end part of the two (i.e. the first derivative of GP100, the big Pascal chip from Tesla P100), scheduled to power GeForce GTX 1060 Ti (6GB GDDR5), 1070 (8GB GDDR5) and 1080 (8GB GDDR5X). GP106 silicon will power the GeForce GTX 1050 (2GB GDDR5) and 1060 (4GB GDDR5).
Just like any GeForce GTX launch, Nvidia’s marketing team loves a good riddle. Good portion of the surprise was out last week, when Electronic Arts launched a landing page for Battlefield V reveal on May 6th. Nvidia now launched the “Order of 10” puzzle website, using internal alphabet giving you a clue. The letters of the alphabet are hidden behind the pages containing quite informative artwork and quotes from the fields of Astronomy (Johannes Kepler), Circles (H.G. Welles), Compute (Gottfried Leibnitz), Collision (Albert Einstein), Structure (Charles Howard Hinton) and Vision (Herman Snellen).
As usual, the landing page is filled with clues, all of which should help you decipher the following puzzle: “F I N D T H E H I D D E N D I R E C T O R Y”. Indeed, there’s a hidden directory on the website. For that one, you’ll have to put in some effort.
All will be revealed in an online stream this coming Friday, May 6th 2016.
