Dark Sided Partners with AMD

Today it comes with great pleasure to officially announce ViewSonic.Dark Sided's latest partnership with computer hardware giant AMD!

AMD's continuous involvement within the Australian esports industry is among the best and we're very excited to be able to help them take that involvement to new heights.


Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is a leading computer hardware company that specialises in processor technology. As an esports organisation, ViewSonic.Dark Sided rely on the best possible performance from our computers and in partnership with AMD, ViewSonic.Dark Sided can consistently enable its players to reach the top of their game.

I’m absolutely thrilled to announce and share this partnership with the public. It’s one we’ve been working on for almost 6 months now, and I’m very proud to see it in fruition! AMD has always been a staple brand in the ANZ esports industry - and I’m confident we’ll all see some amazing work together. The brand itself fits perfectly in our current line of sponsors, so it’s safe to assume they’re right at home here.

ViewSonic Title Sponsorship

Over the past 6 months ViewSonic have been supporting Dark Sided players to help them achieve success in Australian Esports. As of today, we're taking that partnership to the next level.

It is with great pleasure that we announce a new title sponsorship with ViewSonic!

Dark Sided is one of the most recognized gaming organisations in Australia, and we are excited to expand on our partnership. As a global display brand with roots in the Australian gaming community, ViewSonic’s title sponsorship of Dark Sided solidifies our commitment to the local gaming scene and demonstrates our aspiration to be a leader in the gaming monitor market

Josh Edwards - Sales and Marketing Manager of ViewSonic Australia

At the end of August, Dark Sided’s Street Fighter V roster will journey to Hong Kong for their Capcom Pro Tour Premier event, where they’ll face off with some of the best international players in the world for coveted Pro Tour points.

Next month in September, the entire FGC team (inclusive of Spud and Waz) will be attending Australian FGC Major, Ozhadou Nationals (OHN15) in Sydney, where they’ll be looking to reciprocate their May success at Battle Arena Melbourne (BAM9) in Melbourne. Both these huge Australian FGC events were proudly sponsored by ViewSonic ANZ.

Working with ViewSonic has been an absolute dream thus far. I can’t truly explain the joy I feel presenting this announcement to the public, I can confidently say that it’s a culmination of efforts from Josh, our players, and the endless effort from our management team.

ViewSonic sponsored OHN14 last year, which was our first FGC event. When I saw how passionate the Aus FGC was towards ViewSonic and Dark Sided, for both supporting the FGC in respective ways, I knew I wanted to work with the brand. Dark Sided is definitely going to cause some damage in this year to come, and we couldn’t ask for a more supportive company to be along side us. I know for a fact that everyone under Dark Sided is looking forward to continuing a bright future with ViewSonic, and that working with a leader in gaming monitors will provide the support network we need to thrive ever more
