nVidia NVIDIA Confirms GeForce "Ada" Launch Tied to "Project Beyond"

Ada "AitchForce" Lovelace.

NVIDIA has been dropping a trail of breadcrumbs in its GeForce twitter feed over the past week surrounding "Project Beyond," which from the get go was interpreted as its debut of the GeForce RTX 40-series, based on the "Ada" graphics architecture (named after Ada Lovelace, credited with being the mother of computer programming). In its latest tweet, the company posted a picture of the famous "Diagram for the computation by the Engine," believed to be a computer program she wrote for the Charles Babbage number engine (an analog computer from the early 19th century).

The teaser video shows a copy of Lovelace's chart lying on a modern PC desk. One of the two monitors has a sticky note with a phone number scribbled on it—(208)-629-7538. Punters on social media decoded this not to be a random phone number, but a well-crafted hint about the vital specs of the top GeForce RTX 4090. "208" could denote 2.08 times the performance (or at least FP32 compute throughput) of the RTX 3090 "Ampere." 629 could be the die-size in mm², and 7538 could mean 75.38 billion transistors (the rumored transistor count of the 5 nm "AD102" silicon on which the RTX 4090 is based).
