It’s still no easy feat to try to buy a new RTX 30 series GPU these days, and the supply shortages and high demand may continue for some time if some reports prove accurate. What’s a gamer in need of a processing power up for their PC to do?
Fear not, NVIDIA (sort of) has a solution for those who want to try another way to acquire a raytracing powerhouse GPU — by attending GPU Tech Conference (GTC) 2021, paying attention for Easter eggs, and doing a bit of quick social media engagement.
wccftech and Videocardz has uncovered the start of a treasure hunt organized by NVIDIA, beginning with a Morse code message in a teaser tweet and a short promo video:

From that starting point, Vieocardz ultimately found a secret landing page buried in the GTC 2021 event site, which provides the necessary information about how to participate in the competition. Among the prizes offered for those who accurately and quickly post the Easter eggs during GTC 2021 could be a GeForce RTX 3090 GPU.
NVIDIA’s GTC 2021 will kick off on Monday, April 12 and continue through Friday, April 16.
