We just got word that ATI has joined up with Abit on the ACON4 tourny!

 April 12, 2004 Spanning 20 countries and territories, ACON4 is 2004’s largest gaming event. Now, ABIT is proud to announce that graphics leader, ATI Technologies, has joined ACON4 as a major sponsor. With ATI on board, ACON4 promises to also be one of 2004’s most lucrative gaming events, featuring over US$150,000 in cash and prizes.

“LAN gaming tournaments have become a truly global phenomenon, uniting people from around the world in the spirit of friendship and competition,” said Paul Ayscough, Director of Corporate Marketing, ATI Technologies Inc. “By supporting best-in-class events like ACON4, we demonstrate our commitment to this growing community and provide them with the tools to push the visual boundaries of gaming.”

Gamers from around the world will test their skills at the wildly popular Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne against the best players from their regional qualifier. Upon winning their qualifier, each regional champion will then travel all-expenses-paid to Shanghai, China to compete in the ACON4 finals. There, they will face the best players in the world for the ACON4 championship.

“The support we’ve received from both the industry and gamers worldwide is tremendous,” said ABIT Marketing Director Scott Thirlwell. “With ATI joining our ranks, there’s never been a better reason for gamers to register and win.”
