Nvidia Celebrates 250 Certified iCafes At High GroundsOctober 23, 2017
Nvidia celebrated their 250th GeForce-certified iCafe at TNC’s High Grounds – one of the Platinum Geforce-certified iCafe in the Philippines. The 250 certified iCafes are systematically scattered across Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, South Korea and Vietnam.
The GeForce certification was launched two years ago to help iCafe owners deliver top-notch gaming experience to their customers. GeForce certified iCafes’ gaming clients are equipped with GeForce GTX GPUs that enable better graphics quality and smoother gaming performance compared to other non-GeForce certified iCafes. Under the hood of these GeForce certified gaming clients are no less than a GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card which is complemented by an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor.
“It’s amazing to see so many iCafes across the region equipping themselves with NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs to provide the best possible gaming experience to their customers,” said Simon Tan, director, consumer business, APAC south, NVIDIA. “It shows that the iCafe owners truly appreciate the importance of having NVIDIA technologies and understand what their gamers want.”
Along with top-notch gaming capabilities, GeForce-certified iCafes have special access to specially designed GeForce GTX drivers that provide high performance, improved efficiency and reliability. These drivers are put to rigorous testing by NVIDIA’s Quality Assurance Laboratory and Microsoft’s Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL).
Other than the mentioned benefits of having a GeForce-certified iCafe, owners of certified iCafes will also be part of exclusive programs such as participation in Jumpstart for new GeForce product launches, iCafe seminars, program updates, and promotions from NVIDIA partners. They will also be invited to attend an iCafe Discovery Conference in China where iCafe experts, systems integrators and add-in card partners will share innovative business models and ideas, which iCafe owners can apply in their respective countries.
NVIDIA also holds gaming events such as GeForce Xtreme Tournament and Overwatch Open SEA on the premises of GeForce-certified iCafes which attracts thousands of gamers, raising the iCafe’s visibility.
