NBA 2K League Games Will Be Played on Alienware PC Hardware, not Consoles

One of the early questions involving the NBA 2K League would be what console the game would be played on. Well it turns out it won’t be a console at all. The NBA 2K League has announced a comprehensive partnership with Dell and Intel. The games will be played on Alienware PC’s that feature the 8th Gen Intel Core i&-8700K Processor that will be accompanied by Alienware’s 25″ 240 Hz gaming monitors. These will be used during all live gameplay including weekly matchups, three in-season tournaments, playoffs and the NBA 2K League Finals. All players will have the flexibility to use the controller of their preference, whether it be an Xbox, PlayStation or even a Steam controller.

Each game will run at 1080p and 60FPS, minimum. The viewing experience will be available in 4K. “Our partnerships with Dell and Intel give us the ability to utilize state-of-the-art hardware and technology that will optimize league play and the viewing experience for fans around the world,” said Brendan Donohue, NBA 2K League Managing Director.  “The combination of Alienware and Intel will advance the elite gaming experience and we are thrilled to incorporate two of the top products and brands throughout the NBA 2K League during our inaugural season, and beyond.”  Alienware will be the presenting partner of two highly visible programs – the NBA 2K League Draft Clash, a tournament on April 6 featuring 10 of the top picks from the inaugural NBA 2K League Draft on April 4, and the NBA 2K League Halftime Show.  Intel will be the presenting partner of the NBA 2K League Studio, where Intel® Core™ and Intel® Xeon® processors will provide the technology infrastructure for the league’s regular season, playoffs, and Finals. Dell was also selected by 16 of the 17 teams participating in the inaugural NBA 2K League season.
