Samsung Electronics partners with WCG once again and demonstrates high-performing SSD solutions in e-sport Game Shows. This post will offer you detailed information about it.
Samsung Electronics Cooperates with WCG 2019
This year, WCG returned to the international stage after a six-year hiatus, making it a highly anticipated event for e-sports fans all around the world. Qualification matches have been held online by regions all over the world since March. Those advanced players are invited to the WCG 2019 Grand Final, hosted from July 18-21 in Xi’an, China.
Unquestionably, Samsung Electronics has become an official sponsor of the WCG once again. On top of its official sponsorship of WCG 2019, Samsung also held a 595 square meter Samsung exhibition during the event for visitors to explore.
WCG (World Cyber Games) is an international e-sports competition with multi-game titles in which hundreds of e-sports athletes from around the world participate in a variety of competitions. It is also known as E-sports Olympics.
WCG is formed in 2000 and held the first competition in 2001. The event was hosted by International Cyber Marketing (ICM) and sponsored by Samsung and Microsoft (from 2006 until the end of the year).
WCG was the largest e-sports event of the year, attracting more than one million visitors every year. In addition, each participating country will organize its own preliminary round and select the best players to participate in the competition. However, it is a pity that WCG was discontinued since 2013.
In March 2017, the former Samsung owned WCG Trademark was transferred to Korean Publisher Smilegate. It plans to develop the WCG “into the world’s top digital entertainment festival in the future”. Hence, WCG returned to the international stage this year.

Compared to traditional HDDs, Samsung’s SATA SSDs can boost performance by up to 4 times, file extraction speed by 3 times, and photo copy speed by 10 times. For example, it takes only 31 seconds for SDDs to extract a 4.7GB movie, while the same process takes 96 seconds when using HDDs. Accordingly, users who play high-spec games are increasingly adopting SSDs.
