Baselan 28: What’s Going On In The Demo Zone

Baselan is only 2 weeks away. It’s time to start getting hyped! Here’s some of what we have in store for you this time.

The Demo Zone has been a regular attraction at AYBonline’s Baselan events for a number of years now. Each event we try to bring our community something new and exciting to try, that they may not otherwise have had the chance to. This year we have a couple of systems running some of the newest Nvidia graphics cards.

Our Asus sponsored rig will be running dual Geforce GTX 970s in SLI. This rig will be used for our racing simulator. Assetto Corsa will run buttery smooth with this rig!
