PAX East 2013: NVIDIA is Open For Gaming Panel Recap

Events, Videos

With PAX East 2013 already well under way, the Saturday evening’s Main Stage panel was filled with a rowdy, thunderstick-toting crowd eager to learn about NVIDIA technologies like GeForce GTX TITAN and Project SHIELD. Entitled NVIDIA is Open For Gaming, the hour long event was hosted by NVIDIA’s Tom Peterson, Technical Marketing Director, and was viewable by livestream as well.

For those fortunate enough to attend the Boston gaming show, we doled out $10k worth of prizes ranging from lanyards and Project SHIELD t-shirts to PC accessories and components. The crowd roared in approval as we unveiled the ultimate prizes- not one, but two EVGA GeForce GTX TITANs and even a GeForce GTX-branded Maingear PC, complete with all accessories and powered by GeForce GTX 680.
