“The only think keeping the PC upgrades industry afloat is gamers and ******** enthusiasts.”
Although I should note that gaming is exploding right now. The older generation doesn’t do it too much, but the younger generation does it plenty, and is even teaching their kids about games. IMO it’s gonna be as strong as TV and movies.
What’s interesting is that if you’re right, then Moore’s law is dead. We don’t need to explode the GHz and number of transistors anymore. Just 10 or so years ago, you would have predicted that Moore’s law wouldn’t stop in your lifetime.
And now? Now you’re advocating its decline. You don’t want it to continue anymore, you see it as useless.
Personally, I’ve always thought that there would be an end to Moore’s law eventually. I still think we haven’t reached that point yet, but IMO it will eventually plateau rather than continuing its exponential growth.
