Being a non-profit event, Breakpoint couldn't exist without the generous help from our various sponsors. The past has shown that getting in contact with the scene does really pay off - being technically highly skilled, sceners often end up in high positions in the IT/Game/3D industry and therefore are a valuable target to many enterprises. We are still open to new partners - if you are interested in helping us out with money or prizes, feel free to contact us at .
ATI Technologies Inc., a world leader in the design and manufacture of innovative 3D graphics and digital media silicon solutions, again will be joining Breakpoint as Platinum Sponsor. ATI is contributing money and hardware prizes to the party competitions.

Intel believes in innovation. They're driven by it. They live by it. And it's this principle that led them to create the world's first microprocessor back in 1971.
Today, Intel is behind everything from the fastest processor in the world to the cables that power high-speed Internet. They keep innovating because it's in their blood. Because it's part of their heritage. And because the technology they invent today will shape the world's future.
