NVIDIA and the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL), today announced that
NVIDIA has signed on as a presenting sponsor of the $ 1,000,000 CPL World Tour(TM).
The landmark tour, which boasts the largest cash purse ever offered by a game
tournament, will travel to ten international cities and is expected to bring
together the world’s best competitive PC game players and computing enthusiasts
at every stop. The $ 1,000,000 CPL World Tour will commence on February 10th in
Istanbul, Turkey, and will travel to major cities in Europe, Asia, South America
and North America throughout the year.

As a presenting sponsor, NVIDIA will host on-site exhibits at each of the ten
tour stops, as well as equip the tournament PCs deployed at each tour stop with
its award-winning GeForce(TM) 6800 model graphics processing units (GPUs). The
selection of NVIDIA(R) GPUs will deliver to players competing in the headline
Painkiller competition the distinct technology advantage of blazing fast frame
rates and crisp visuals necessary for extreme levels of play. NVIDIA is also
contributing funds to the "unofficial" competitions based on other popular PC
games, including Day of Defeat and Warcraft 3, at select tour stops.
