Abruptly, Aorus has published its concept for a subsequent-era gaming PC, Project Cielo. It undoubtedly seems other, with its triangular stacking construction, and it’s claimed to be modular too. However is it in point of fact “the way forward for gaming”?
As a concept PC, one can forgive Gigabyte / Aorus for being a little gentle on the main points. There are in point of fact no tech specifications to proportion. On first impact, I believed the 3 separate modular segments of the concept design is also; CPU, GPU, and tool/garage – one thing like that. Alternatively, Aorus’ imaginative and prescient and modular design is not like that in any respect; the concept as proven is composed of “the primary machine, the battery pack, and the Bluetooth speaker”. Having a look extra intently on the pictures, the ones module descriptions follow from best to backside. On best, at the major PC machine unit, you’re going to additionally see the angel cake-like wings of the 5G antenna.
It sort of feels like Aorus reckons 5G is very vital to the way forward for gaming PCs. “In comparison to the standard stressed or 4G wi-fi networks, 5G makes PC gaming at the move imaginable via providing higher bandwidth, extremely-low latency and close to-speedy get entry to to cloud gaming,” it explains, in a press unencumber about Project Cielo. So, will PC gaming depend extra on nice connectivity one day somewhat than having outstanding processing energy within the chassis – that appears to be the Aorus perspective, which is a bit extraordinary for the PC gaming wing of Gigabyte to advertise. Why now not use an simply luggable 5G pill for such transportable prime-jinks as a substitute, with a giant bonus – it has a display screen.
Within the product description, Aorus reveals a fair looser tie to present gaming PC ideas, “Customers can mix any of the 2 portions and fulfil their wishes for gaming, leisure or different cellular programs.” So this concept PC does not even want the bit that’s the PC…
This may well be one of the most first concept modular PCs of latest years that I haven’t any hope for or enthusiasm about. It is going to due to this fact more than likely be one of the most first to make it previous concept into retail, however arms crossed for a no-display at CES 2022.
