Several US states are banning gaming PCs

PC gaming is about to get a whole lot less impressive across several US states. California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington are banning the most powerful gaming PCs due to new power consumption regulations. As a result, retailers are blocking orders containing top components to these six states. In effect, it’s a government-issued gaming PC ban that could also impact other hobbies and industries.

Is California banning gaming PCs?

California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington are beginning to prevent gamers from buying high-spec gaming PCs due to power consumption regulations. Adding certain components to a PC can result in it breaching power consumption rules, effectively locking gamers in these states out of the highest settings and best gaming experience.

The new rules have been incoming since 2016, with the completion forecast for July 2021. California residents can read the compliance advisory on appliance efficiency regulations for computers and monitors here. Although California isn’t the only state adopting these regulations, it’s arguably the most surprising as the home of Silicon Valley.

Desktop PC and monitor combos can consume several times as much energy as laptops, notebooks, and tablet computers. As a result, they’re a specific focus of the new legislation. Although desktop builds aren’t banned outright, consumers won’t be able to outfit them with all of the highest-end components.

According to one Redditor, Dell refuses to deliver PCs containing a Ryzen 5800 CPU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU. In the future, as components presumably become even more power-hungry, more potential builds could be taken off the table. Games consoles like the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 aren’t coming under fire, however, which could lead to an increase in adoption rates.

In other hardware news, be sure to download the new iPhone update ASAP. iOS 14.7.1 contains “important” security solutions that Apple recommends for everyone.

In terms of gaming, Okami is coming to Monster Hunter Rise as a ridable mount — sooner than expected, too. There’s also a mysterious countdown in Fortnite that may be leading to a famous musician’s debut.

the fact that we have people broke homeless and staving, people who stormed the capitol because they thought the election was rigged, detroit still doesn't have clean water, mass shooting all over america and the list fu*king goes on


but banning gaming pc's made it to the top of the list is nothing short of remarkable.

PCs due to power consumption regulations.

The article points out the real reason, then acts like it's a ban on pc's because of the actual gpus later on in the write up. Its a ban on some of those sh*tty overpriced Pre-built joints that don't adhere to power consumption rules. You could go to any store selling PC Components and build systems or order joints within the regulations that are even stronger than the type they're targeting and get a power supply thats within regulations and still game no problem.

This will likely be the next business plan for companies like Microsoft, Nvidia, etc.

Have a Remote Desktop with all the same specs you want just pay a monthly subscription to access it

I think Nvidia has something like that already.

Just goes to show they aren’t really doing sh*t. They shuffle papers, tap dance for the cameras and then pass some bulsh*t that’s easy. No one wants to actually do the work, just take the easy W and campaign again.

What's the logic in paying for a system that cost the same without a computer? and PC has better graphics than PS5 and Xbox series x

I don't care about a gay console war leave me out of it Especially after I saw a picture of graphics of a PC compared to PS5 and the PC destroyed that sh*t. fu*k Sony they k*lled fbg duck and try to do Michael Jackson dirty. Xbox ain't sh*t but just a console also.

I slapped, but your right, pc gamers are getting fu*ked. Prices just started coming down on graphics cards. I'm not a pc gamer, but this still affects my ability to build a strong desktop in the future.
