Lenovo Legion Takes Center Stage
Electronic Arts’ Apex Legends Global Series has signed on with Lenovo Legion, who will sponsor competitions through March 2021 by supplying high-performance PCs and monitors. As the official PC and monitor partner, Lenovo Legion will support EA’s battle royale esports players as they compete for more than $3M USD during the season.
Lenovo Legion will supply over 200 PC’s to the series along with 200 monitors and a few laptops for talent. The PC towers for competitors feature Intel 9th Gen processors with NVIDIA GeForce 2070 Super GPUs, while its gaming monitors will provide 144Hz as the standard for series play.
One way to qualify for the Apex Legends Global Series Majors, the highest tier of competition, is to compete in Online Tournaments. The online elite subsequently advance to local Challenger events or regional Premier events to showcase their skills at increasingly talented competition. Only the best players in the world will advance to the Apex Legends Global Series Majors, and ultimately the Apex Legends Global Series Championship, where they’ll be greeted with Lenovo Legion equipment to use in the high-stakes competition.
The Lenovo Legion T730 tower serves as a stunning powerhouse with up to 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 overclocked 9700K processors and supercharged NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX™ 2070 Super GPUs all optimally cooled via Lenovo Coldfront 2.0 with Liquid Cooling. When paired with the Lenovo Legion Y25 Monitor, the Lenovo Legion T730 towers deliver lightning-fast 144Hz refresh rates for near-instant responses in the heat of battle, as well as bring out sharp images and details during gameplay.
Beyond these powerful esports-ready desktop PCs and monitors, Lenovo will also be providing Lenovo Legion laptops for the caster’s desks to spectate and commentate on the live performance.
The exclusive partnership will kick off at the first Apex Legends Global Series Major on March 13-15, 2020 in Arlington, Texas.
