G.SKILL Releases Competition Rules to  OC World Cup 2016 Live Qualifier and Grand Final 


Taipei, Taiwan (14 March 2016) – G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, released the rules and benchmarks for the G.SKILL 3rd Annual OC World Cup 2016 Live Qualifier and Grand Final rounds, to be held during the week of Computex 2016.



Live Qualifier - 5 Benchmarks Total

Following the OC World Cup tradition, the Live Qualifier round will be held throughout the first three days of Computex from May 31st to June 2nd. Each Live Qualifier contestant will have two time slots to complete designated benchmarks for the highest scores, and the top two contestants will secure the tickets for the Grand Final on June 3rd.


This year, the Live Qualifier will require scoring in five (5) total benchmarks - four benchmarks chosen by G.SKILL, plus an extra 5th benchmark chosen by HWBOT community poll votes from a list of 5 pre-selected benchmarks. The poll will open from March 14th to April 11th. For more details, please refer to the chart below:



Grand Final – 3 Benchmarks + “Sudden Death” Mission

The top 2 finishers of the Live Qualifier round will compete head-to-head in the 3-benchmark Grand Final round. The two Grand Final contestants will choose one benchmark each, and the third benchmark will be for the highest DDR4 frequency with a DDR4 kit provided by G.SKILL before the Grand Final. The higher scoring contestant will be the winner and champion of OC World Cup 2016.


For an even more excitement, in addition to the 3 benchmarks, there will be a special “sudden death” mission at the contestant’s option. Whoever completes the special “sudden death” mission within the Grand Final competition time period will win the OC World Cup 2016 Grand Final immediately and walk away with the $10,000 grand prize.
