“As a professional gaming team, we strongly demand superior and stable system performance to optimize the gaming results. The motherboard serves as the frame of the PC system; it plays an essential role in keeping the system’s stability and enhancing the overall performance.” said Dong-Hoon Kang, founder of the IM team. “It is a great opportunity for both of us. IM has already had a strong preference for ASRock powered systems; the alignment can further ensure that the performance levels of our training systems are on par with the PCs in worldwide gaming tournaments.”

“Korea has the most advanced gaming industry than anywhere else in the world. The IM team was nurtured in such an environment so it has become a world-leading gaming team. The affiliation with Incredible Miracles has granted us an opportunity to increase brand awareness for ASRock products as the best gaming gear choice.” said James Lee, vice president of sales and marketing at ASRock.

ASRock has been dedicated to develop the best motherboards for years and its Fatal1ty series is designed for all professional gamers to optimize their gaming results. Besides the sponsorship of the IM team, ASRock will keep promoting e-sports with advanced products throughout the world.
