But of course the actual GPU's used for these eSport championships will not be R7 240's. They will likely be the top end of the GPU scale. And if they're supporting StarCraft II, I hope they don't use their APUs. That game needs more than an APU.

Nvidea supported the Ns2 world cup and gave away 750's. I say this, not to snip amd but that they gave low end gpu's also like the 240.

The prize pool is a tiny proportion of the money that exists in professional LoL. Riot pays players a good wage to compete in the LCS, and (due to high viewing figures) the money good teams can make from streaming, sponsorships and endorsements is nuts.
