NVIDIA and Red Bull Media House Partner On Professional PC Gaming Competition

NVIDIA and Red Bull Media House announced an exclusive partnership where NVIDIA will serve as the official graphics partner for Red Bull Battle Grounds, a marquee Star Craft II competition taking place November 23-24, 2013 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Through the partnership, NVIDIA will provide the ultimate platform for players to compete on, and showcase its groundbreaking technologies such as NVIDIA G-SYNC and Shadowplay.

Players will be competing on an elite gaming platform - the awesome Falcon Northwest Tiki, powered by the ultimate gaming GPU, the brand new GeForce GTX 780 Ti. In addition, players will test their skills on NVIDIA G-SYNC-enabled monitors, which provide the fastest, sharpest, and smoothest visual experience possible.

The Red Bull Battle Grounds tournament will feature four of the world’s top competitive professional gamers from previous Red Bull eSports events including Red Bull Battle Grounds 2012 winner Jang ‘MC’ Min Chul who returns to face-off against last year’s runner-up Choi ‘Bomber’ Ji Sung who is hungry for the win after a slow start, but powerful wrap to his year. Red Bull Training Grounds champions Jo ‘Golden’ Myeong Hwan and Jens ‘Snute’ Aasgaard as well as four players who were qualified and invited through other tournaments - North American heroine Sasha ‘Scarlett’ Hostyn, Won ‘PartinG’ Lee, Ko ‘HyuN’ Seok Hyun and BlizzCon 2013 Champion Kim “sOs” Yoo Jin. The ultimate champion of the Red Bull Battle Grounds tournament will walk away with their share of the $50,000 prize pool and a Falcon Northwest TIKI G-SYNC-powered gaming PC, worth more than $3,000.

Fans and spectators will also have a chance to try G-SYNC and Shadowplay technologies for themselves at the NVIDIA booth located in the main room of the Red Bull Battle Grounds event and experience why these innovations are a huge breakthrough for competitive gaming and already backed by industry luminaries.
