With the market for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games booming, we’re introducing the GeForce GTX 950 GPU to arm MOBA gamers with a competitive edge.
In just three years the number of MOBA gamers has doubled to 80 million. The eSports industry is now worth an estimated $612 million. There are more than 2,100 MOBA tournaments annually. And last month’s The International Dota 2 Championships — with its $18.4 million prize pool — is among the richest sporting events on the planet.
MOBA is mainstream. And the GTX 950 brings a level of responsiveness to MOBA gamers that only pros used to afford.
Winning Happens in a Fraction of a Second
If you’re wading into the sprawling battles of games like Dota 2, League of Legends and Heroes of the Storm, you want to be able to see — and respond to — the action first. “Responsiveness is king,” says Alexander “Abaxial” Haibel, head coach of Brazilian eSports team INTZ. “It’s critical for my team to game on high-performance systems which provide that.”
That’s why NVIDIA is the preferred GPU for competitive MOBA players. Last month, for example, eSports athletes competed for a piece of The International’s multimillion-dollar prize pool on systems equipped with specially selected NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs and G-SYNC displays.
The GTX 950 is a high-performance gaming GPU that brings an incredible level of responsiveness to MOBA gamers. In addition to raw performance, when you use GeForce Experience with your new GTX 950, you can optimize your game and system settings for reduced latency. It’s a powerful combination that slashes the response time from mouse click to onscreen action by almost half.
Share Your Victories with GeForce Experience
MOBA games are a team sport, where sharing is a big part of the fun. New features coming to GeForce Experience next month via our early access beta will make sharing your victories easier and better than ever.
Two cool highlights: Gamers will be able to record and upload videos to YouTube and broadcast to Twitch from an easy-to-access in-game overlay. Also, GameStream Co-op lets gamers stream their game over the internet to a friend and play together cooperatively — just as if you were sitting next to each other.
Gaming Starts Here
If you’re looking for a new GPU to play the latest games faster than the most powerful console, the GeForce GTX 950 is the place to start.
Based on Maxwell, the world’s most advanced GPU architecture, the GTX 950 offers triple the performance of our GeForce GTX 650 on many games. So you can play modern games in 1080p HD at a smooth 60 frames per second. And with double the power efficiency of previous generations, it stays cool and quiet even when the gaming heats up.
Grab a GeForce GTX 950 and GeForce Experience and you’ll be able to record, broadcast and stream your games to friends — or to the world, through Twitch.tv — with a click.
The GeForce GTX 950 retails for $159. It’s available now, worldwide.
