This year NVIDIA surprised a lot of gamers with their ‘NVIDIA’s G-Assist AI’ which turned out to be an April Fool’s joke that got nearly 2.25 million views on YouTube.

The comments section of the video asked NVIDIA to make a USB thumb drive for gamers that matched the look & feel of their favorite graphics card (besides asking for a real version of “G-Assist AI” to really work for them).

Well, NVIDIA has delivered (the thumb drive, not the G-Assist AI – yet).

NVIDIA has created a limited edition GeForce GTX replica thumb drive and they are giving them away to press and influencers that are booked for meetings at NVIDIA’s E3 booth. BTR is scheduled to go to E3 next week and we hope to also get one of these collectibles.

Best of all, gamers will have a shot at getting these GTX thumb drives.

1080 will be given to registered GeForce Experience members worldwide who have opted in to receive communications from NVIDIA.

Gamers have other ways to win GeForce GTX hardware with NVIDIA’s ‘E3 is Game Ready’ contest, which includes over $100,000 in prizes. In addition, Gamers talking about the PC games at E3 they’re excited about, using the ‘#GameReady’ and ‘#E3’ hashtags, could be selected to receive something from the prize pool. Subscribers to the GeForce YouTube channel can leave a #GameReady comment on any E3 2017 video for a chance to win.

The details are here. The prize pool includes:

  • 100 winners
