Alienware brings out Concept Nyx to redefine modern gaming solution at CES 2022

For CES 2022, Alienware has showcased its latest Concept Nyx, a device that allows simultaneously allow players in a household to easily access their full game library and play on any device, even if they want to change screens during gameplay.

According to the famous gaming PC and laptop brand, Concept Nyx is an R&D project from Alienware’s consortium of wizards also known as the Experience Innovation Group (EIG), who has created Alienware’s thinnest gaming laptops to date with the Alienware X-Series to bold gaming ideas like Concept UFO.

Imagine being on the desktop in the bedroom exploring Night City in CyberPunk 2077. Your roommates are on their laptops and tablets in the living room, battling head-to-head in Rocket League. And your cousin is also over, casually building a new world in Minecraft on her smartphone. Now let’s say it’s time to prepare dinner so you head downstairs and pass the controller to one of your roommates – you can quickly switch to your CyberPunk 2077 experience on the 65-inch TV in the living room and let them takeover exactly where you left off, advancing your game while you cook.

The company is also expect Concept Nyx to spotlights the role edge computing could play – where high performance game processing could be done in the home and shared across the local network. Because the processing happens locally (versus needing to travel to and from distant servers), it could offer lower latency, greater bandwidth and more responsiveness – ultimately solving some of the performance shortfalls of current alternatives like cloud gaming. This means multiplayer latency could reach single-digit milliseconds to dramatically decrease any lag of modern-day cloud gaming systems. 

It doesn’t stop there either. Alienware has been looking at how to power four game streams simultaneously, smart switching among devices, and drawing from a central library of all your games regardless of where you purchase them. Gaming on Concept Nyx aims to be as effortless as accessing your favourite music, TV shows and movies. Imagine a simple app loaded on each device delivering instant access to all your games for a more seamless gaming experience across devices in the home. Imagine no more fighting with family members or roommates over game time – tearing down the barricades so that everyone can game on their own terms.

At the time of writing, Alienware has yet to confirmed the Concept Nyx will be ready for the market soon and no official specifications were shared. But the idea allow simultaneously allow players in a household to easily access their full game library and play on any device, we hope Alienware quickly launch the device soon.
