Bloomberg: Hardcore PC gamers have more than one motherboard in their PC

Bloomberg says that hardcore PC gamers have more than one motherboard in their PCs

Doing a bit of Reddit surfing between news posts when I spot this laughable news piece. "The Real Cost of Being a Video Gamer" is a piece by Bloomberg, where they've quoted Jamin Warren, founder of Kill Screen magazine, where he discusses hardcore gamers.

He says "PCs are the hot rodders of game play." Which, is fine. Bloomberg did also say Warren said that hardcore gamers "often soup up systems by adding motherboards, boosting RAM and optimizing graphics." Adding motherboards? As in plural, multiple, more than one? Wow. Really?

'Hardcore' PC gamers 'optimize' graphics, why not get some actual facts and state that they add more than one graphics card (or GPU) in their system. But, I thought I'd just point this article out, I have to go now though, I've got to spiff up by PC and install another two motherboards. I never realised being a hardcore gamer since the early 90s on PC, that having one motherboard makes me unl337. BRB adding motherboards.

I won't even go into the rest of the article, you should really take a look for yourself, it's a great read.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
