Annual AMD ExtravaLANza On Nov.18-19

Canada’s eSports industry has taken off in the last year, from the launch of the country’s first 24-hour eSports channel to packed competitions at the Air Canada Center.

To celebrate Canada’s passion for competitive gaming, AMD is hosting one of the biggest celebrations of eSports in Toronto, AMD ExtravaLANza from Saturday, Nov. 18 – Sunday, Nov 19.

Last year, over 2,000 people attended, and even more are expected this year, to experience free-play battle stations, VR demos, and watch local eSports athletes vie for a $9,000 prize pool.

AMD and its partners like EvenMatchupGaming and Gigabyte will also showcase the newest technologies in graphics, gaming and visual displays, including:

  • 120 Cybertron gaming PCs for tournaments in CS:GO, Dota 2, and Super Smash Bros.
  • Single- and multiplayer VR demos featuring AMD partners HTC and Oculus
  • High Dynamic Rage (HDR) 4K Displays with Radeon RX Vega graphics cards

AMD ExtravaLANza will take place from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. from Saturday, Nov. 18 – Sunday, Nov. 19 at 99 Sudbury in Liberty Village. You can go to 99 Sudbury St in Toronto to join the fun.
