FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
QUAKECON 2004—MESQUITE, TX—AUGUST 12, 2004—NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, has teamed up with id Software to power QuakeCon 2004—the biggest LAN party of the year. A title sponsor of the event, NVIDIA today announced a full schedule of events that will keep gamers busy day-and-night as they get hands-on play time with DOOM 3™, one of the most anticipated PC games in history, on PCs equipped with NVIDIA’s award-winning GeForce 6 Series graphics cards, the recommended graphics platform for the game. The 9th annual QuakeCon event will take place this week at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, from August 12-15.
“NVIDIA has amped up the intensity of the tournaments this year with $150,000 in cash prizes for the DOOM 3 and Quake III Arena Championships,” said Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software. “The cash brings the pressure to the fragging, and NVIDIA’s other contests ensure that there’s plenty to do even when the deathmatching is done.”
NVIDIA activities at QuakeCon include:
“DOOM 3 has finally arrived and we can’t wait for gamers to play it on PCs equipped with the GeForce 6800 GT GPU—which is, hands-down, the best graphics card to pair with the game,” said David Roman, vice president of corporate marketing at NVIDIA. “QuakeCon represents the gaming lifestyle and we’re excited to be in Dallas for the biggest LAN party of the year.”
