Gaming PC company CyberPowerPC has teamed up with pro gaming team Complexity Gaming, aiming to promote eSports to a wider audience. CyberPowerPC will be able to use the pro gamers to develop and test out prototype hardware that can later be released to the consumer market. In exchange, CyberPowerPC will provide the team with new custom gaming rigs for use in practice and during live tournaments.
"Complexity Gaming is one of the most respected eSports franchises in the world," said Eric Cheung, CyberPower CEO, in a statement.
Professional gaming is a very niche market, but can develop a strong following among avid gamers and PC enthusiasts. Complexity specializes in Counterstrike: Global Offensive, Starcraft II, and Call of Duty, with frequent tournament wins throughout the year.
