    Hi Everybody,

    With the initial release of 2023.1.0b1 (feature highlights) on January 25, we are also kicking off our accompanying beta sweepstakes, which give you the chance to win one of three NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3070 graphics cards. Our partners at NVIDIA are providing these GPUs to celebrate that Unity’s tech for real-time ray tracing is coming out of preview.

    The GeForce RTX™ RTX 3070 graphics card is powered by Ampere—NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture. Built with dedicated 2nd gen RT Cores and 3rd gen Tensor Cores, streaming multiprocessors, and high-speed memory, it gives you the power you need to rip through the most demanding games.

    To enter the draw, all you have to do is identify and report at least one original bug during the 2023.1 beta cycle while the submission period is open. The contest is open from Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at 6:00 am PST, and the submission period ends Sunday, April 30, 2023, at 11:59 pm PST.

    An original bug is one that has not yet been reported at the time of submission and has been reproduced and acknowledged by Unity as a bug. Make sure to add #Beta2023Win_NVIDIA to your bug reports to make it clear that you'd like to enter the sweepstakes. Every additional valid submission increases your odds of winning, but no participant can win more than one prize.

    If you entered a valid submission while the submission period was open but didn’t initially tag it with #Beta2023Win_NVIDIA, you can still do that retroactively until the end of the submission period by replying with the tag to the confirmation email you received after submitting the report.

    No purchase is necessary. Void where prohibited. See the full rules here. We will contact the winners directly.

    nice!

    btw. when the email has that button to "check status",
    it asks for login, but email doesn't mention that you need to create new account for this external site..(and unity login doesnt work, even though it says "Log in to Unity")

    It does work if you signup, no issues there.

    Also the warning on email says " information you’ve submitted is accessible by anyone with this link"
    But its not accessible, depends on your login. (tested it with other account).

    I have multiple reports made in 2021, which also affect 2023. Do those automatically get entered if theyre confirmed, do I have to add the # as a comment, or don't they count?

    Correct

    You need to add #Beta2023Win_NVIDIA as a comment to your report in order to enter it as a submission to the sweepstakes and report it via 2023.1.

    Alright! Sorry QA for the replies
    Might be double since the hashtag gets removed from the report once it's confirmed

    Thank you for the reminder. That 3070 would come in handy to play "Last of Us" with better texture quality :oops:
