I'm happy to announce the final structure the old Cup into the new Pro OC Championship. Please review the new format and program details below, we opened up the application process this month and have some outstanding candidates, so I really look forward to hearing from those of you who want to join the program or participate in the Championship on your own.
Having Vendor support on the hardware level, and now financial support to offset some of the XOC expense is new to this competition, and with it comes certain responsibilities. The Overclocker generated "content" aspect is going to be the major key to the success and ultimately the growth of this competition. The Vendor has to be able to see a return on their investment in this program beyond just the typical benchmark result and submission. I have complete confidence that you guys can and will make this happen.
With that said, participation in the Pro OC Program is not mandatory, individuals are welcome to compete in the Pro OC Championship series apart from the Program. We have a separate prize budget in place for those participants that are not in the Pro OC Program.
You can find more information and details in the thread linked to the news announcement.
