CONTEST IS NOW OVER.
The winners are (in the order that their name was pulled from the hat):
Grand Prize: Mark Albiar
Runner-up #1: Eric F
Throughout the month of March, we’ve had a lot of gear and games up-for-grabs (a couple of contests are still ongoing as this contest goes live), and while we’re now into April, it doesn’t seem right to cut things off without a “big bang”. Once again, NVIDIA has come to the rescue.
To cap off our 10th anniversary celebrations, NVIDIA’s offering up two prizes, and both involve some serious hardware. The grand prize winner will walk away with Acer’s 28-inch XB280HK display, sporting a 28-inch frame, a massive 4K resolution, and best of all, NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology. Still not sure what G-SYNC is? Check out the “G-SYNC: What It Is & Why It’s Worth It” section of our first G-SYNC review. Rob has two G-SYNC monitors in his lab, and has reached a point where he couldn’t imagine not having them.
While it’d be amazing to win such a great monitor, the person who walks away with the runner-up prize sure won’t be disappointed: It includes both NVIDIA’s super-fast and super-capable SHIELD Tablet as well as the SHIELD Controller. On-the-go gaming has never been so much fun.
Restrictions: A Canadian or United States address is required to receive prizes. You’re required to respect local contest laws.
Acer XB280HK 28-inch 4K G-SYNC Gaming Monitor
Acer’s XB280HK has been designed for gaming through and through. In addition to its G-SYNC inclusion, the XB280HK also sports a top-rate response time of 1ms and 4x USB 3.0 ports (two underneath, and two to the side). After booting up with this monitor, the most noticeable feature will be its enormous 4K resolution – that’s 8.3 million pixels, or 4x 1080p. You want crisp, smooth gaming? The XB280HK can help with that.
NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet & NVIDIA SHIELD Controller
We’re glad that NVIDIA decided a few years ago to dip its toes into the mobile market, becuase every single one of its SHIELD-branded products have been winners in our books. The Tablet is no exception. It features Tegra K1 under-the-hood, a crisp 1200p display, 2GB of RAM, Android Lollipop, a stylus (more tablets need one!), and fantastic gaming capabilities: NVIDIA’s streaming service GRID, PC streaming via GameStream, and SHIELD Hub, which keeps you informed on the hottest Android games coming out.
The official prize list is as follows:
Grand Prize: Acer XB280HK 28-inch 4K G-SYNC Gaming Monitor
Runner-up NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet & NVIDIA SHIELD Controller
