It’s Dragon Boat Festival, a public holiday in Taiwan but instead of choosing to run off for the holidays, hundreds of young gamers made a beeline to ATT where NVIDIA held the NVIDIA Gamer’s Day as a run up to Computex, which starts tomorrow.
From the moment the event kicked off at noon, there was no holding back the enthusiasm as the crowd checked out the latest and greatest in gaming technologies such as 4K monitors, G-SYNC, GameStream, ShadowPlay, SHIELD, GeForce GTX 700 series GPUs, and GeForce GTX 800M series-enabled notebooks. They took photos, touched, played with, and experienced the gaming devices first hand. Watch Dogs, AC4 Black Flag and Daylight were among the games on offer.
A team of five amateur gamers blew aside all the competition by winning six consecutive games to take home a whopping US$10,000.
On stage, top Taiwanese League of Legends professional teams ahq, TPA and TPS thrilled the crowd withe their gaming prowess. Some of the audience even got the chance to play alongside their idols to do battle right in front of the live audience — with commentary to boot!
As if that is not enough, lucky participants took home more than just a great experience — they carted away G-SYNC monitors, gaming notebooks and wait for it, the highly-prized GeForce Titan Z.
