GUNNIR has unveiled a special edition of their Photon GPUs, designed exclusively for the 19th Asian Games taking place in Hangzhou, China. The company has forged a partnership to serve as the official sponsor and exclusive provider of graphics cards for this prestigious event. Comparable to the Olympics, the 19th Asian Games is a quadrennial competition that draws athletes from across Asia to contend in various sports. Although most events center around traditional physical disciplines, it’s important to highlight that this edition will mark the introduction of e-sports for the first time, highlighting the increasing prominence of this genre in Asia.
Contrary to its title, the 2022 Asian Games are set to occur later this year, specifically in September, and will be hosted by China. In anticipation of this event, Intel and Gunnir have entered into an exclusive agreement to supply GPUs solely for the e-sports category of the games.
In celebration of this occasion, Gunnir has crafted a unique iteration of their existing Arc A750 Photon series. These updated GPUs will retain their essential cooling mechanisms and integral elements, with the main changes manifesting in a fresh color scheme and distinctive graphics adorning the backplates. It’s worth highlighting that one of the models aligns with the theme of the Valorant game, a prominently featured title in the tournament, while another design pays tribute to the visual essence of the 2022 Asian Games.
The systems designed for players participating in the Asian Games tournament are built around the Intel Core i9-13900K processor, the B760 motherboard, and 32GB of DDR5 memory.
Intel’s systems for the Asian Games, as depicted by Gunnir’s source, are being readied. The Asian Games 2022 are slated to commence on September 23 and extend until October 8. Notably, Intel’s “Innovation” event is set to take place just four days before, potentially unveiling updates related to desktop CPUs and GPUs.
