Quick GeForce LAN 6 Write-Up

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I was able to make it to GeForce LAN 6! It was overall a great experience, by far the funnest LAN experience that I've been a part of.

Here's my notes:

It was mainly hosted by Tom Petersen of NVIDIA and we also got to see NVIDIA GM Drew Henry on the microphone quite a bit.


It got very hot inside the ship, despite it being fully open the entire time. I was hoping for more free drinks since it was so hot/humid but it's not too huge of a deal.

We got to play some brand new exclusive Battlefield 3 maps that have never been played by the public before, in both 3D and regular. I really liked the smaller non-vehicle construction zone map a lot since I was afraid that this game was going to entirely focus on large 64-player gameplay. Overall, BF3 was awesome.

They announced 3D Vision 2 on the first day. Funny enough, my friend and I were laughing and calling it an overpriced gimmick and then moments later our entire row won brand new Asus VG278H 27" LED 120Hz monitors and 3D Vision 2 kits. They're going to mail them to each of us. Their only word on delivery was "Allow 30 days" but I assume that this is because these products just launched and you can't even get them online yet.

The food was gross and I only really enjoyed the last meal of pasta bowls. Oh well, free is free.

I didn't sleep on the ship but I have some friends that did. They didn't seem to mind it but I guess they got some kind of crazy military-style awakening in the morning. Instead, three of my buddies and I got a hotel room.

I got to watch K|ngP|n overclock on one of his SR2 boards. Nuff said.

I also got to see X79 running with the fancy Intel Sandy Bridge-E liquid cooler. This caught me by surprise. The EVGA guys weren't sure of the SB-E model that was running but they did confirm that it was indeed SB-E. I didn't see any benchmarking or anything like that.

They gave out a $10,000 custom rig with two Mars II cards paired with a 2600K in a custom case. Man the guy who got that is lucky.

One of the DICE guys were there to talk about Battlefield 3 and the history of Battlefield. Wasn't too informative but it was cool to see. Though, he does discuss the new maps.


We were on a boat.

I'm super tired right now and I can't think very well but I may add more tomorrow after I get some sleep. Hope this is at least slightly informative.

UPDATE: They gave us a Battlefield 3 discount card with a free t-shirt code on the back and a "$20 off any Origin game" on the front. Unfortunately, the discount didn't work with Battlefield 3 but I used it on Crysis 2 to get the game for $20. Also, the t-shirt code even covered express shipping which made the order total to $59 for free! Awesome!

I got free copies of Dungeon Siege 3 and Alice: Madness Returns too.

Yeah man. I wouldn't have been able to make it but my friend was nice enough to pay for me way ahead of time, as long as I had the money on the event day. Sure enough, I paid him back and everything worked out great.

Nah. My buddies and I all registered as a group. People with large groups were able to register together before registration was even open.

You mean the Battlefield 3 PCs? They each had two NVIDIA GTX 580s in SLI with an Intel Core i7 960 3.2 GHz and 6GB DDR3 RAM. They all had 3D Vision 2 glasses and the Asus VG278H 27" LED 120Hz monitors like the ones that my entire group won.

What about the performance (With 3D off), were you guys able to MAX IT OUT at a constant +60fps?

That's a similar system as mine, hoping 2x GTX580's can do the job.

Oh yeah, the performance was 100% flawless and maxed out. Very gorgeous and seamless experience.
