NVIDIA has released the new drivers for the GeForce RTX 4090, but some users have conducted an analysis of the files and found that within a file there are references to some graphics cards not yet released.
NVIDIA, Updated RTX 3070 TI, And RTX 3060
Specifically, the 522.25 Game Ready driver in the nv_dispig.inf file includes three new IDs that would refer to three GPUs not available in stores.
In fact, a video card reader discovered that the following IDs are present in the file in question:
- NVIDIA_DEV.2207, which should be connected to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti of the GA102 series GPU
- NVIDIA_DEV.24C9, which should be for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with Micron GDDR6X memory
- NVIDIA_DEV.2544, which should be the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 with 8GB of memory
It is unclear why there is no mention of support for previous-generation cards, much less when the GPUs in question is released. However, as noted by Wccftech, it is likely that the information was also made available to NVIDIA partners ahead of the launch of the GeForce RTX 40 series, which is why the graphics cards can be expected to hit stores over the next few months. The specifications of the cards are obviously not known.
