The NBA 2K League has announced partnerships with Dell and Intel. Under the multiyear agreements, Dell will serve as the professional e-sports league’s official PC hardware and monitor partner, and Intel will serve as an official technology partner and the presenting partner of the NBA 2K League Studio. NBA 2K League games will be played on Dell’s Alienware PCs powered by Intel’s gaming processor, the 8th Generation Intel Core.
“Our partnerships with Dell and Intel give us the ability to utilize state-of-the-art hardware and technology that will optimize league play and the viewing experience for fans around the world,” said Brendan Donohue, managing director of the NBA 2K League. “The combination of Alienware and Intel will advance the elite gaming experience and we are thrilled to incorporate two of the top products and brands throughout the NBA 2K League during our inaugural season, and beyond.”
During the NBA 2K League season, Alienware’s premium PC hardware and Intel’s gaming processors will be used during all live gameplay, including weekly matchups, three in-season tournaments, playoffs and the NBA 2K League Finals. Additionally, Alienware will serve as the presenting partner of both the NBA 2K Leauge Draft Clash tournament and the NBA 2K League Halftime Show.
The inaugural NBA 2K League season debuts in May and will feature 102 of the best NBA 2K players in the world.
