We are happy to announce that Intel, BenQ, HyperX and GIGABYTE will be accompanying the Intel Extreme Masters in its 9th season. 


Intel's title sponsorship of ESL's premier tournament circuit marks the longest running global sponsorship of its kind in esports. The upcoming Intel Extreme Masters season will be BenQ’s 4th (official monitor sponsor) and HyperX's 2nd (official memory and headset sponsor).  The new member of the team is GIGABYTE as the official motherboard and graphics card sponsor.


“We are happy to welcome GIGABYTE to the Intel Extreme Masters family,” says Michal Blicharz, Director of Pro Gaming at ESL. “We pride ourselves in forging long-term relationships with our partners like Intel, BenQ and HyperX and I hope that GIGABYTE will be on board with ESL for many seasons to come.”


The Intel Extreme Masters tournament systems are built with cutting edge components provided by our partners to deliver the best possible performance to the competing gamers.  Gaming fans around the world also have the opportunity to test the hardware at the Intel Showcase which travels with the tournament.
