Gravity Gaming by ByteSpeed provides computers for The University of Akron, Ohio’s eSports Program
Gravity Gaming by ByteSpeed is proud to provide 93 advanced gaming PCs for the University of Akron’s (UA) intercollegiate eSports competition and recreational gaming for their students.
UA’s Zips eSports program opened three dedicated gaming facilities on Friday, October 5th to accommodate the new varsity, club, and recreational esports offerings. The esports Grand Opening event was attended by our Gravity team, including GG Manager, Jesse Hoffart, Ohio Territory Sales Manager, Steve Haman, and our Purchasing Manager, Kyle Beckius.
With more than 5,200 combined square feet, the facilities will be outfitted with 93 state-of-the-art Gravity Gaming PCs for competitive eSports. The PC specs include GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards, Intel’s Core I7 8700 central processing units, and Samsung 860 EVO SSDs, among other high-end features, logo customization, and LED lights.
“These facilities ensure that our campus gaming community has a physical home for student gamers to meet, compete and grow together,” said Michael Fay Jr., director/head coach of eSports programs. “This reflects our program’s commitment to ensure — whether you’re a student who likes to game casually or are a dedicated competitive player — that there’s a space for you to celebrate your love of gaming with others who share that passion.”
Gravity Gaming also felt strongly enough about continuing to grow the relationship we built and the mission behind the University of Akron’s eSports initiative that we created a custom endowment to support their growing program.
