NVIDIA Launches Call of Duty Rivalries Competition!Thu, Nov 15, 2012 - 2:46 PM
NVIDIA is ecstatic about the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, especially the PC version as it’s a visual masterpiece, being the first CoD series to use DirectX11. This allows it to be differentiated from the console version with stunning visual enhancements such as ambient occlusion, depth-of-field and TXAA anti-aliasing. All of this brings back the focus onto PC gaming – the most powerful gaming platform around.
So, to celebrate its release, NVIDIA has launched the first ever “GeForce GTX Call of Duty Rivalries” competition which pits top colleges against each other in Call of Duty: Black Ops II four-person, last team standing multiplayer matches. Participants in the first round of competition include the storied rivalries of Cal vs. Stanford, USC vs. UCLA and UNC vs. NC State. Two additional Wildcard colleges from any accredited college in the United States will also be chosen by the Facebook community to field teams.
Winners of each matchup and both Wildcard entries will be flown to NVIDIA headquarters for the grand finals. The last two teams standing will compete for the ultimate prize — a custom GeForce GTX 690 gaming rig for each player, and bragging rights as the first ever NVIDIA Call of Duty: Black Ops II Rivalries Champion!

It’s also possible to earn extra votes by buying the PC version of CoD: BO2 (5 extra votes) and a GTX 650 or higher graphics card (10 extra votes). Both items must be purchased from Amazon.com
