With the proliferation of mobile devices, gaming has broken its tether to the living room and is now enjoyed everywhere. In fact, according to the latest study from the NPD market research group, 59% of total game play is done on a mobile device. Market research firm Mintel found that 38% of tablet gamers and 20% of mobile phone gamers are playing five or more hours per week. Gaming is clearly a trend that is here to stay.
Additionally, gaming graphics continue to become more detailed, life-like and real-time, requiring high-end graphics cards, lightning-fast CPUs, and large amounts of memory to access frequently used information or programs.
