The Advantages of PC Gaming
Pros and Cons of PC
Playing games is fun, especially if we are already winning, we will definitely be addicted and want to play on. For more fun games, we need a quality PC. PCs have advantages for gaming because the specifications are more capable than laptops. It seems that from the beginning this PC was comfortable to use for gaming. Some of the specifications owned by a PC such as HDD, RAM, VGA, and others are far superior to the specifications that are owned by laptops. Both have the same price or even the price of a PC that is cheaper than a laptop, but in terms of PC specifications, it is still superior.
Another advantage that PCs have for gaming is that PCs can easily upgrade hardware. For gamers, there are so many games currently circulating that almost every year the game series gives birth to exciting new games. Thus we must be diligent in updating games with different specifications. Hardware that is owned by a PC is much easier to upgrade than a laptop so that for gamers, they prefer a PC to always update the games they have. PCs are also more powerful for gaming, so we can play for hours without the slightest problem.
However, a PC cannot be carried anywhere, very different from a laptop that can be carried anywhere and can be used for gaming at any time. PCs also need electricity continuously when used for gaming. It’s different from a laptop that can be carried anywhere so that we can play games as we like. However, to play games on a laptop, only a few small games can be played, if you play large games, of course, the power used must also be large. Gaming on a laptop also causes the laptop battery to run out quickly.
Most laptops used for gaming heat up quickly and often have errors. A hot laptop continuously will damage other laptop components, of course, this will harm us.
Of course, behind the specifications that are equally best between gaming laptops and gaming desktops, there are several reasons or considerations so that you come to the decision to choose one of them. And the best way to make a choice between a gaming laptop and a gaming desktop is to know the difference.
- Graphics card.
A graphics card (graphics card) is an expansion card specifically used to manage computer graphics performance. Graphics cards can generate a lot of heat. Gaming desktop graphics cards have their own cooling systems in the form of a heat sink and fan. Supported by a large casing, relief, and better air circulation, heat can be maximally absorbed, distributed evenly, and then dissipated into the air.
The processor (CPU) acts as a brain (brain) that will process data and instructions from the game being played. The more reliable the processor, the better the performance in playing games. Like graphics cards, processors on gaming laptops are also weaker when compared to gaming desktops.
RAM functions to temporarily store data and instructions for the game being played. Data and instructions stored in RAM can be accessed quickly by the CPU (processor) for processing. For heavy games that require more processing, some processing also occurs on the GPU (graphics card). The greater the RAM capacity, the more data and instructions that can be stored for later processing and the better the game can be played.
Storage or storage can be HDD or SSD. Gaming laptops use 2.5-inch HDDs while gaming desktops use 3.5-inch sizes.
Judging from its size, gaming laptops have a small screen size compared to gaming desktops. To play games, the small screen is not satisfying enough. However, you still have the option of plugging into a separate monitor.
