Who’s good enough to play in PyeongChang? Who has the skill to perform on the ultimate world stage? In February, the answer will be clear. Witness Esports history as IEM visits South Korea for a showdown unlike any other.
The Growth of Esports
Esports is expected to reach about 500 million fans worldwide by 2020, thanks in part to the success of Intel® Extreme Masters (IEM), the longest running global Esports tournament series. That success has driven an expanded partnership between Intel and ESL, enabling all of ESL's amateur and pro Esports, plus its studio and broadcasting operations, to be powered by Intel® technology. That means all tournament PCs will feature the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processors, so you can watch the pros perform at their best.
