MSI has certified a bunch of possible NVIDIA Ampere cards with the EEC. The registration of twenty-nine cards has been published just a week before NVIDIA hosts its GeForce Special Event on September 1, where it is expected to unveil the likes of the RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090.

The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has published an interesting registration by MSI. PCGamer appears to have first spotted the listing, which has been reposted by outlets like Videocardz. The listing contains references to twenty-nine video cards, although none have been registered by their marketing names. Instead, MSI has registered various model numbers that range from 602-V388-06S to 602-V390-12S.

Specifically, MSI has registered fourteen V388 cards, eleven V389 cards and four V390 cards. MSI is unlikely to bring all twenty-nine to market immediately, but the company will probably release most of them within the next or so. V388, V389 and V390 may not necessarily represent the RTX 3070, RTX 3080 or RTX 3090, but they are three distinct SKUs.

For context, MSI refers to the RTX 2060, RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti as the V375, V373, V372 and V371, respectively. If that naming scheme follows for Ampere, then the RTX 3070 will be the V390, while the V388 and V389 will represent the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080. Little else can be gleaned from the listing, other than that MSI has distinguished the cards by appending "xxS". Recently, EEC listings have like those for the iPad Pro and the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick have preceded product releases by a few weeks or so. NVIDIA has scheduled a GeForce Special Event for September 1, so we should see more details about Ampere then and possibly even some add-in-board (AIB) cards from the likes of MSI.
