Dell Alienware has also jumped aboard as a partner. The brand has completed 20 years in the gaming industry as of this year and looking to improve the gaming experience and focus on what makes gamers thrive.

“eSports have taken the world by storm and India is no exception. The format attracts gamers as they get to showcase their skills, compete with each other, and gain recognition from their peer gaming community. At NVIDIA, we see immense market potential in India and through NVIDIA GeForce Cup, we want Indian gamers to experience the latest eSport games on the best platform. This will also pave the way for them to compete at international competitions.
On the other hand, it will encourage gaming cafes to keep abreast with the latest developments in the gaming scene and improve the experience for their customers. This invariably results in higher footfall, and increased revenue,” said Vamsi Krishna, Head – Consumer Marketing, South Asia, NVIDIA.

“The Gaming industry has always been at the center of technology evolution, driving technological improvements in development, screen resolutions and graphic technology. Our Alienware notebooks are created to not only match the demands and expectations of gamers today but surpass them. The NVIDIA GeForce Cup gives gamers a unique platform to show off their skills and through our association with the event, we aim to stay true to what Alienware is all about and what keeps our fans loyal to our brand,” said Ritu Gupta, Director- Marketing, Consumer & Small Business, Dell India.
