Earlier this week, Nvidia announced it’s 30 series line-up, which brings with it a revolution, to say the least. With the Xbox series X and the PS5 around the corner, the chances of a PC gaming resurgence were looking slim.
The only edge that PC’s had was better performance and after the announcement of the use of Ryzen Zen 2 architecture and “Big Navi” for the upcoming consoles. PC’s seemed unappealing at that point. However, Nvidia has resurrected hope for PC enthusiasts all for an unbelievable price. The immense power that Nvidia promises to offer, has turned the tables in favor of the PC master race once again.
In Pakistan, the interest in gaming PCs is slowly rising and the new 30 series lineup will surely impact the Pakistani gaming community in a positive way.
