BlizzCon is one of the highlights of the year for North American gamers with thousands of attendees converging on the Anaheim Conference Center for 2 days of gaming, cosplay, e-sports, panels and events culminating with a Blink-182 concert.
NVIDIA were there in force to show the highest possible graphics experience with Blizzard titles such as World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2 and Diablo3.
G-Sync makes games play better by allowing the GPU to update the screen at the optimal time rather than being constrained by the 60Hz legacy that traditional monitors use. This results in less input latency and a smoother experience with no tearing. It’s one of the most exciting innovations for real time graphics in recent years.
Saving and sharing videos of game play is a big deal these days especially with the Blizzard crowd. ShadowPlay uses the Nvidia hardware video encode and data transfer to allow video capture with minimal impact on performance. At Blizzcon, attendees got a chance to record their own avatars dancing and capture their best moves in ShadowPlay.

4k Ultra High Resolution Gaming
World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 all natively support 4K resolution and looked stunning in our booth throughout the show. This was the best graphics experience possible for these titles and was a stunning treat for the Blizzcon attendees.
When 4K isn’t enough!
NVIDIA showed a 3 screen 4K surround set up running WOW at the event. That’s 25 Megapixels for those counting. This system was a Falcon Mach V with 3 GTX Titans. Crazy stuff!
