If it wasnt for gaming....

6 replies 3 views Edited Dec 9, 2006
If gaming wasnt as popular as it is i think Computers would be alot less powerful.........You dont need a super powerfull computer to run...MS word do you?  We can thank gaming for the powerfull computers we all enjoy everyday, and it seems like they are getting more powerfull day by day....Honestly if there was no gaming what would the incentive be to keep making computers more powerfull.  I know some programs are requiring more computer power, but little to no programs require as much as games like F.E.A.R, Oblivian..ect..ect.

Yes, all game stuff is tweaked hand me downs from digital video production...
 
If you mean without digital video then they would be about as fast, they would just not have quite the graphics compasity. The processor stuff is all devolped by the research centers for the scientists, and there is more then enough there to keep the research going for faster processors and memory on it's own... So they would be just as fast, maybe a little faster with less R&D money going into video, but in a diffrient way. The computer was built to crack codes in WWII, and the internet was created with the hopes of creating a more effective communication method with the silos during the later years of the Cold War. Computers are used for a lot more serious stuff then most people realize.
