NVIDIA Aims to Have 500 iCafes in 2018

NVIDIA today announced that there are now more than 250 GeForce®-certified iCafes in operation across Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, South Korea and Vietnam.

Across the Asia-Pacific region, GeForce is the preferred brand in iCafes, where thousands of gamers visit daily to play their favorite PC games and socialize with their friends. NVIDIA expects more than 500 GeForce-certified iCafes to be in operation in Asia-Pacific by the end of 2018.

NVIDIA launched its dedicated GeForce GTX iCafe certification program two years ago to help iCafe owners deliver the ultimate gaming experience to their customers. With more than 100 million customers worldwide, GeForce GTX is by far the preferred GPU (graphics processing unit) of choice by gamers everywhere. The award-winning GPUs deliver best-in-class performance, the latest gaming technologies and world-class driver support.

“It’s amazing to see so many iCafes across the region equipping themselves with NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs to provide the best possible gaming experience to their customers,” said Simon Tan, director, consumer business, APAC South, NVIDIA. “It shows that the iCafe owners truly appreciate the importance of having NVIDIA technologies and understand what their gamers want.”

Certified iCafes have access to specially designed GeForce GTX iCafe drivers that provide high performance, save power and offer robust reliability. These drivers are put through rigorous testing by NVIDIA’s Quality Assurance Laboratory and Microsoft’s Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL).
