Gigabyte has showcased a new concept 5G gaming PC, Project Cielo by Aorus, according to information provided by Gigabyte, a manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards. Combining 5G connectivity, modular design, and portability, Project Cielo, which stands for sky in Spanish, gives an intriguing depiction of the future of PC gaming with endless possibilities, Gigabyte said.
“Project Cielo is a gaming PC with built-in 5G connectivity,” a statement from Gigabyte reads. “Compared to the traditional wired or 4G wireless networks, 5G makes PC gaming on the go possible by offering greater bandwidth, ultra-low latency and near-instant access to cloud gaming. Project Cielo comes with an accommodating falcon-wing antenna that symbolizes Aorus. The design also cleverly integrates the 5G antenna into PC chassis. Players can save the expense of purchasing additional 5G antennas and the trouble of cable arrangement; at the same time they can enjoy the ultimate gaming experience on the go brought by 5G.
Gigabyte said that Project Cielo features a modular design consisting of three parts. The top is the main PC system; the middle is the battery module; and the bottom is the Bluetooth speaker module. Users can mix and match any of these three to form different configurations according to their needs, the company said.
“While at home, the main PC system and the speaker module can be joined as an entertainment center,” the statement reads. “The Bluetooth speaker module can also be stacked with the battery module to become speakers for smart devices. The combination of the main PC system and the battery module also makes it possible for gaming on the go. Players could enjoy the constraint-free PC gaming experience anytime, anywhere brought by 5G.”
Gigabyte said it believes that the popularization of 5G wireless communications technology will make possible PC gaming anytime and anywhere. With that vision in mind, it said, Project Cielo combines 5G connectivity and modular design to make this imagination come true. Gamers would only need to combine the main system unit with the battery module and take the games to wherever they want, the company said.
“Given Project Cielo’s ultra-fast 5G connection, gamers will no longer be tied up to the desktop anywhere,” Gigabyte said. “Instead, they can play wherever they go and have the most immersive gaming experience anytime, anywhere.”
