A new report from EEDAR paints quite a rosy picture for PC gaming: much rosier than what most users would think it to be. That mobile gaming is the platform king is no secret: anyone and everyone seems to be rocking a smartphone these days, and every smartphone has a myriad of games available that are so easy to consume that practically everyone with a smartphone (particularly an Android one) qualifies as a gamer. The interesting bit comes in the result that PC gaming is ahead of console gaming in gamers' minds and usage.

    Ease of access, price (lots of games are free).

    The point is always to make money, and simple games that don't require much hardware make it easier to gain a customer because they don't have to change for the game. Many of us don't mind upgrading for a game, but the rest of the world sees that as a hassle, so how to get their business?


    That being said, they only surveyed 5000 people online, hardly representative of the whole.

    TEC/Peltier definitions, formulas and temperature estimations

     For Intel processors, 0.122 x TDP = Continuous Amps at 12v [source].
