NVIDIA announced last month that it would be giving away three custom, officially licensed Matrix-themed modded PCs and five GPU backplates to celebrate the release of Warner Bros.’ latest Matrix film, The Matrix Resurrections.
A post from the official NVIDIA GeForce account on China’s Weibo forums has revealed that its Chinese division is doing something similar by offering a one-of-a-kind GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card inspired by the new movie. Available to what sounds like a single lucky sweepstakes winner, this special edition GPU features green accents and a shroud covered in Matrix code, the “digital rain” that’s been popularized by the films’ opening sequences.
“This green code rain theme GeForce RTX 3080 Ti gaming graphics card pays tribute to the classic sci-fi movie IP,” reads a machine translation of NVIDIA’s post. “Equipped with NVIDIA’s second-generation RTX architecture, it brings a real ‘immersive’ realistic experience to the 3D virtual world.”
“Thousands of fans and players, please make your ‘choice’! Celebrating @Warner Bros.Film #The Matrix: The Matrix Reboot# Nationwide release today! This is the only limited edition in China. If you forward this Weibo, prove your dual status as a Matrix fan and a GeForce hardcore player in one sentence, you will have a chance to win this graphics card! January 21st draw #UltimateGeForcePC#”
This is a good opportunity for GeForce users in China to score a decent piece of Matrix memorabilia, but the sweepstakes seems outclassed by The Matrix Resurrections GeForce RTX Custom PC giveaway that NVIDIA launched for the U.S. and other territories last month. That contest included a premium GeForce RTX 3080 Ti rig designed by renowned custom PC builder Digital Storm that looked like it was really ripped right out of the Matrix universe.
