IRVINE, Calif., (April 24, 2006) – BenQ, a leading manufacturer of digital lifestyle devices, today announced that it will be the official LCD sponsor for CPL’s, the world’s first professional videogames league, Winter Championships on Dec. 13-17, 2006 in Dallas, Texas. BenQ will supply 160 hardcore computer gaming LCD-monitors, the FP93G X, for use as the exclusive monitor during this annual tournament.
The 19-inch FP93G X is the fastest monitor in BenQ’s line of LCDs targeted at the computer gaming market. With an ultra fast 2ms GTG response time powered by BenQ’s proprietary Advanced Motion Accelerator (AMA) technology, a much faster response time can be achieved that allows for no ghosting, blurring or smearing of colors that usually results in an eye straining and distracting experience for gamers.
“BenQ’s FP93G X monitor was the perfect fit for a gaming tournament like CPLs,” said Wendy Lin, director of marketing at BenQ America Corp. “In past years, LCDs would not have been an option for this type of event because of slow response times. We are excited to bring our advanced technology to an established leader like CPL, and to show our commitment to the professional gaming market.”
“We are very excited to introduce BenQ’s FP93G X monitor to the CPL Winter Championships,” said Angel Munoz, founder and president of the CPL. “All of our internal tests have confirmed that BenQ’s FP93G X monitor should meet the demanding standards of professional gamers worldwide.”
With a super-slim 13mm bezel design, the FP93GX offers an optimum viewing experience. In addition, a high contrast ratio of 700:1 and a brightness of 300 cd/m2 provides a crisp and excellent picture quality that is ideal for PC games and media.
