    SINGAPORE — DECEMBER 10, 2003 — NVIDIA Corporation, the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today announced that it has renewed and expanded its sponsorship of the Cyberathlete Professional League® (CPL), the world’s largest professional gaming league, to include support for all CPL tournaments and events held in North America, Europe and Asia, including two new “Super Bowl” style events slated for 2004. As a worldwide sponsor, NVIDIA will exhibit at all key events and provide a level of hardware support that enables the CPL to standardise on GeForceTM FX graphics processing units (GPUs) in every PC used for competitive tournament play.

    “CPL competitors rely on us to provide them with fast and reliable PC hardware. NVIDIA’s sponsorship allows us to deliver the best state-of-the-art equipment to these cyber athletes,” said Angel Munoz, founder and president of the CPL. “NVIDIA is the hands-down leader in graphics and we’re pleased to provide them with the perfect environment to showcase their latest products to gamers throughout the world.”

    In addition, NVIDIA announced its role as title sponsor of the US$30,000 Halo PC tournament, taking place for the first time at the upcoming CPL Winter 2003 Championships to be held in Dallas, Texas from December 16-20, 2003.

    “CPL tournaments have attracted an astounding number of gamers from across the globe and spectator viewership grows with each event,” said K B Ng, director of marketing at NVIDIA Asia Pacific. "NVIDIA is committed to working with the CPL and doing our part to help turn mature professional gaming into a true sporting event."

    At the upcoming event, NVIDIA will also host the “The Way It's Meant to Be Played” Gaming Zone, where gamers will have an opportunity to preview hot new and upcoming PC games, including UbiSoft’s Far Cry, Electronic Arts' Battlefield: Vietnam Epic Games' Unreal Tournament 2004, Dreamcatcher Games' Painkiller, and more. NVIDIA will also be hosting unofficial tournaments and daily giveaways each day of the event. For more information about NVIDIA at the CPL, please visit www.nvidia.com/nzone.

    CPL tournaments are held in the United States, Germany, UK, Netherlands, Norway, France, Singapore, Australia, and Brazil. For more information about the CPL, please visit www.thecpl.com.

    In Japan, NVIDIA was the premier sponsor of the CPL held from November 22 to 24, 2003. The annual competition saw the gathering of the nation’s top computer game players competing in the game Counter-Strike at Namco’s LEDZONE. Teams battled for the top prize of a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 Ultra.

    If I got Nvidia hardware for free, that'd be fine :)

    As a consumer, I find it hard to justify paying $900 (AUD) for a card which matches or barely beats the ATI equivalent at under $600. That's aside from the fact that current Nvidia cards don't meet strict DX9 standards.
