The IeSF Esports World Championship is an annual esports tournament that takes place in Taiwan, and it’s one of the biggest tourneys of its kind in the region. Of course as a major esports event, IeSF requires the best equipment, and that’s where AOC comes in!

The recent IeSF Esports World Championship 2018 at Kaohsiung, Taiwan happened last November 9-11, and AOC was chosen as the event’s monitor provider.

 

 

 

The monitor used was the new G2590PX – a 24.5 inch, Full HD display that was first unveiled at the event itself. The said monitor was chosen as the monitor of choice given its features such as a 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and AMD FreeSync, making for a fast and smooth esports gaming experience.
