The National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) announced today that iBUYPOWER, a California-based gaming systems provider, is now the official gaming PC provider for the 90 collegiate institutions with varsity esports programs across the United States that NACE supports.
Tespa is dedicated to making gaming the best part of your college experience. Whether you’re a casual gamer looking for a place to call home, or you’re a seasoned veteran ready to take on the biggest stages in esports, our mission is to provide an opportunity for you to embrace your passion for all things gaming.
If collegiate esports is to continue to grow, then organizations like NACE need to help support colleges and universities in starting varsity esports programs. One of the most critical components of a varsity team is having an esports arena on campus. For the last two years NACE has collected information from its member institutions to help advise others on how to quickly and cost-effectively build esports arenas on campus. At the same time iBUYPOWER has been at the forefront in supporting collegiate esports, including high profile sponsorships to help outfit arenas that include UC Irvine, Robert Morris, Columbia College and many others.

“Our partnership is the next step for us in providing a whole end-to-end ecosystem with trusted partners who our member institutions can rely upon to provide top-notch equipment. Just like traditional athletics, your facility is an important component for recruitment. More so, as students and administrators on campus continue to push for greater recognition of competitive gaming as a varsity sport, your arena is where your legitimacy begins. Having something that people can see and touch is a great tool when educating those unfamiliar with esports. iBUYPOWER has been a strong proponent of college esports since the very beginning. But until know, while we had the same goals for the space, both NACE and iBUYPOWER were working separately. With this partnership we can now push in the same direction together and our institutions can lean on their expertise to create a collaborative environment for all parties to take full advantage of,” said Michael Brooks, NACE Executive Director.

As part of this partnership NACE will be forming an advisory panel made of esports coaches and industry experts to make recommendations for collegiate programs year-over-year to make certain varsity programs compete with the best equipment available.
“Esports is in our DNA and we’re excited to partner with NACE to bring collegiate esports to the next level with our knowledge of running national esports tournaments,” said Darren Su, iBUYPOWER Executive Vice President. “At varsity level competitive play, the difference in system performance could determine the victors. Before teams even get into the game, we need to ensure players are able to compete at their highest potential with the best systems but we don’t do it alone. Our partners at Intel provide our systems with the cutting-edge technology needed to compete in esports tournaments.”
iBUYPOWER systems supplied to universities under NACE are equipped with the latest Intel® 8th and 9th gen Core™ processors. Keeping the processor, or CPU, up-to-date with cutting-edge technology is essential to maintaining the integrity of esports matches. Processors that are unable to keep up with the proper frame rate, the game’s running speed, can put a player at a big disadvantage. “With Intel’s technology, we can ensure all varsity esports teams compete at the same high-performing level,” said Darren Su.
