NVIDIA and CD PROJEKT RED have partnered for a new treasure hunt contest where the prize is one of three custom Cyberpunk 2077-themed GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards. Prize winners will get one of the new flagship Founders Edition gaming cards with a customized backplate featuring art inspired by the game. The challenge appears to involve searching for a fixer who’s spotted new tech that has found its way to Night City.

A new generation is almost here — NVIDIA(R) GeForce RTX(R) 40 Series graphic cards have been announced and will be available from October 12th! 

They’re beyond fast, giving gamers and creators a leap in performance, AI-powered graphics, and so many more leading platform capabilities. Using the same amount of power as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, the GeForce RTX 4090 runs up to twice as fast. It will allow you to experience Cyberpunk 2077 with the new Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode & up to 4X performance increase with DLSS 3. 

We’ve heard some rumors that 3 pieces of this preem hardware found their way into Night City. Equipped with custom Cyberpunk 2077 backplates and support brackets from V1Tech, there are literally only 3 in existence. Help us find them and one can be yours!

It’s not gonna be easy though, corps are guarding them as if their lives depended on it (actually, that’s most likely the case). We managed to find some data on the Net but gotta keep it on the down low. We left you a clue on the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter page. Head over there, solve it and complete the task for a chance to get your hands on a GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition graphics card with Cyberpunk 2077 backplate — and make sure to have your Kiroshi set to Photo Mode, ready to use. You know, just in case.

Over the next weeks we’ll be sharing clues to more tasks on Twitter, so keep your eyes and ears wide open. If you’re one of them, corpos, you’ll find the complete set of rules and regulations here.

The contest comes as the popularity of Cyberpunk 2077 is experiencing a resurgence following the release of the Netflix anime series Edgerunners. The new MA-rated series has garnered praise from fans and critics alike.

As also mentioned in the contest description, CD PROJEKT RED has updated the game to support DLSS 3, one of the new features announced with the RTX 40-series graphics cards. The contest begins on September 26 and will have 3 stages with the last happening on October 10. Each stage lasts for a week after which the results will be announced.

a) 1st Challenge – begins on 26.09.2022 and ends on 02.10.2022 23:59 CEST;
b) 2nd Challenge – begins on 03.10.2022 and ends on 09.10.2022 23:59 CEST;
c) 3rd Challenge – begins on 10.10.2022 and ends on 16.10.2022 23:59 CEST;

Each Challenge’s results will be publicly announced within 7 working days of their respective submission deadline.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
