We are thrilled to announce that for a sixth year in a row we are joining forces with HyperX to bring you another amazing season of Intel Extreme Masters. HyperX™, the high performance division of Kingston® Technology Company, Inc., will be the exclusive peripheral and memory partner for season 13. HyperX products, including headsets, keyboards, mice, mouse pads, and PC memory, will be used to support IEM, and to provide competing players with equipment of the highest quality, ensuring the best competitive experience possible.
"The extension of this partnership demonstrates the great strength of our long term relationship with HyperX", said Michał Blicharz, VP Pro Gaming at ESL. "The sponsorship of an event series like the Intel® Extreme Masters is very prestigious and only one brand has been involved in IEM as long as HyperX has been. At the end of this season, we will have been working with HyperX for six years and we continue to collaborate on our shared values, passion and commitment to the community."
"HyperX appreciates the long relationship we have with IEM and the growth we've seen together over the last six years", said Annie L. Gerard, corporate marketing manager, HyperX. "During Season 13, we will continue to provide the highest quality gaming products for tournaments, players and fans during the streaming and in-arena IEM events".
This will be the sixth consecutive year having HyperX as a sponsor for Intel Extreme Masters, the relationship having started back in Season 8 and we are looking forward to another year of fruitful collaboration.
