Nvidia is giving away 1080 Ti graphics cards for sweet PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds highlights

A great Battlegrounds highlight could score you a mega-sweet GPU.

Everybody is going all-in on that Battlegrounds, from Microsoft touting it as their biggest Xbox One exclusive for the end of the year through to Nvidia getting behind Battlegrounds with full and customized Battlegrounds support for some of their graphics card features including ShadowPlay Highlights and HBAO+ lighting.

You can’t really blame Nvidia for wanting to get so involved – the game is selling millions and just keeps going.

Nvidia’s latest tie-up with the battle royal survival game tasks users of Nvidia graphics cards to simply play PUBG with their graphics card and capture their best moments in-game. By using the ShadowPlay Highlights system with PUBG you can create quick videos of your finest moments on the battlefield, and by sharing them with Nvidia you’ll be in with the chance at winning prizes including the rather excellent GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.

You can learn more about it over on Nvidia’s official news site, but here’s the important stuff: there are three 1080 Ti cards up for grabs, plus some other smaller prizes.

If you’re playing Battlegrounds already all you need to do is ensure you’ve got ShadowPlay active and at the ready and save any cool moments if you manage to get the drop on people in Battlegrounds in particularly humiliating or bad ass ways. ShadowPlay records everything you do for a short time, so if something cool happens you just need to quickly open it and save the clip, as shown in the video above. ShadowPlay is part of the GeForce Experience package.

The 1080 Ti is a seriously good GPU to have – I use it, and it runs most games at very solid frame rates at a full 4K resolution. Earlier on in the year I took a bunch of 4K screenshots of Mass Effect Andromeda with the 1080 Ti, and they speak for themselves. Hardcore Battlegrounds players, this competition might be worth a punt!
