Alienware made a concept gaming server to take on PC game streaming at CES 2022

While it seems like many companies spent the last couple of years creating cloud gaming services like Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now, at CES 2022, Alienware unveiled a new concept that takes things a little closer to home. 

The Alienware Project Nyx, if it ever comes out (big if), will essentially be a gaming server that you can use to play games remotely on any device in your home. The whole reason for this is that because all of the processing is done on a centralized device in your home, it would cut down on the latency that plagues cloud gaming platforms. 

It is an incredibly cool concept, and I was even able to see it in action in New York, but because it’s so early in development and possibly won’t ever come out, it’s probably best not to get your hopes up for this thing. But that doesn’t mean we can’t geek out about it a little bit.
