Custom Built Gaming PCs are Already “Next-Gen”

Both Microsoft and Sony will release their latest consoles towards the end of 2020, promising a generational leap in performance. While the console manufactures are fond of referring to their devices and games as being “Next-Gen”, those who prefer gaming on PC have enjoyed better performance for many years now.

Many of the innovations on the new consoles are already staples of the PC gaming industry. If you demand the best graphics, performance, and versatility, it’s time to consider custom built gaming PCs in Wakefield.

The Gaming PC Has Advantages Where It Matters

Console technology is based on PC. To call consoles “Next-Gen” is something of a stretch…

  • Sony and Microsoft have heavily marketed the solid-state storage solutions they will use in their latest consoles. PC gamers have enjoyed SSD storage for many years now. Some of the fastest solutions on the market today have sequential read speeds above 3TB per second, which is far more data than the average game needs to stream to the RAM, GPU, and CPU.
  • The latest consoles will have support for native 4K graphics and even 8K graphics in some titles. PC gaming has been pushing in this space for years. In addition to supporting ultra-high resolutions on the best graphics cards, the framerates on PC are notably higher, allowing for smoother gameplay.
  • Gaming on a PC allows unrivaled versatility and freedom of control. For shooters like Call of Duty, Battlefield, Fortnite, Valorant, and other games, mouse and keyboard offer precision that a controller can’t compete with. Of course, PCs still support controllers, including native support for the Xbox controller. A range of racing sim wheels and even flight controllers are also compatible with PC.
  • Custom built gaming PCs in Wakefield also offer versatility in other ways. You can use full versions of Linux and Microsoft Windows for productivity, multimedia, content creation, web browsing, Discord chat, study, and work, etc.

This is not even mentioning the fact that there are tens of thousands of games available on PC with widespread backward compatibility. From the classics to the modern day, you can play it all on custom built gaming PCs.

On Steam alone, there are over 30,000 games, offering something for every type of gamer to enjoy. PC games are often cheaper too, which is a huge bonus in the long term.
