A bevy of new NVIDIA GeForce and Quadro cards were spotted on the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website. While the certification entries themselves do not reveal much about the cards, this is one of the last stages before the cards are released into the wild.

The next generation of NVIDIA cards are inching closer to release and have now started showing up for certification in various regions. We are seeing NVIDIA entries that have come in for certification by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), which is the permanent regulatory body of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). 

The cards are indicated by a series of number making it somewhat convoluted to decipher what they mean but Videocardz has managed to do some of the deciphering giving us an idea of what's to come later this month. The cards are broadly classified into the '699' and '900' series wherein the 699 cards belong to the mainstream GeForce segment and the 900 cards belong to the prosumer Quadro/Tesla segment. There are also indications of the PCB board numbers such as PG150, PG160, and PG180. While it may seem plausible, the board numbers are not exactly representative of the GPU names. Therefore, PG180 might or might not refer to the GTX 1180/2080 card. 

A few days ago, we reported on the leak of a PCB image that supposedly belongs to the upcoming GeForce GPUs. That PCB had certification logos imprinted on it and carried the PG180 number so in all probability this is the very same board that has landed for EEC certification now. The other digits in the numbering imply variants such as power circuits, display connectors, cooling mounting, and the PCB color. 

It is still not confirmed whether the upcoming GeForce cards will have a 11xx or a 20xx nomenclature. NVIDIA is hosting a 'GeForce Gaming Celebration' event around the same time as Gamescom 2018 on August 20 so it's just a matter of a short wait before we get to know all the juicy details.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
