Chipmaker Intel will reportedly run a scavenger hunt for the launch of its first graphics card for PCs. This comes after the company posted a teaser video on March 25th of the business’ new Xe HPG graphics card, which is expected to launch later this year.
Live Mint did an excellent job laying out the steps to find the scavenger hunt. “The video looks like a regular launch video for the Xe HPG chip, but on a closer look, there’s a binary code that appears on the chip around the 20-second mark. This code, when translated to regular digits–which Wccftech did–turns out to be 126.96.36.199. Sounds like an IP address, right? If you copy-paste that IP address onto your browser’s address bar, you’ll land on xehpg.intel.com, a website that announces the upcoming scavenger hunt.”
According to the Intel website, the scavenger hunt is scheduled to begin at 9 am on March 26th. On the 26th, users will have to return to the website and “enter a secret code”. It is not yet clear where the secret code can be found.
The Xe HPG chip is the first PC gaming chip created by Intel. The organization has already tied up with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to make these chips.
