- ESL One Cologne, LANXESS arena, August 22-23
- ESL One at New York Super Week, The Theater at Madison Square Garden, October 3-4
“ESL One is about the best players in the world playing in the biggest arenas, so it is only fitting that they would play on the best hardware – which is exactly what NVIDIA provides for us,” said Ulrich Schulze, Managing Director of Pro Gaming at ESL. “Together I am sure we will be able to accomplish great things for our competitors, allowing them to bring their best game to the competition at hand.”
NVIDIA’s presence will not only include offline competitions, but also encompass online tournaments, such as the Dota 2 Cup series’ in the CIS region, the ESL Pro Series in China and many more. The company’s continued partnership further emphasises its commitment to the future of eSports and its community.
James Grunke, Director of Global eSports at NVIDIA said, “By integrating GeForce GTX and G-SYNC desktop monitors into the tournament infrastructure, we can ensure that pro-gamers are able to play on the most advanced platform possible. Being able to eliminate any kind of tearing and stuttering during gameplay is crucial in a competitive environment, and we’re able to offer a smooth and fast experience where the only difference between winning and losing will be based purely on the skill of the player.”
