Alienware’s Concept Nyx is actually a fun idea that I like. It’s just a simple idea – have a gaming “host” server at home, and you can stream games from that server to other devices around the house via LAN connectivity – either WiFi or Ethernet.
I’m not really sure how to describe Concept Nyx. It’s like a feature whereby you can remotely access all of your files and personal data from wherever you are in the house. The only quick description that I can give is “home gaming server” and it works pretty much like Steam Link but on steroids.
Picture this – by utilizing a high-speed WiFi connection at home (which is very feasible), we can stream games to our living room TV. Maybe you want to stream the game to an ultrathin laptop – go ahead.
Or maybe, you want to play Halo Infinite while your brother wants to play Cyberpunk 2077. In turn, Concept Nyx lets you do exactly that.
This Concept Nyx is brought to us an R&D project from the Alienware’s Experience Innovation Group. They are the ones who did a lot of crazy stuff before – like creating Alienware’s thinnest gaming laptops to date with the Alienware X-Series and Concept UFO.
And one weird concept that I have no idea how it works – is that you can stream two games, side by side, on a single TV. While that sounds amazing, I have no idea how the audio output is going to be. Won’t they clash?
But then again, this is still a concept for now. It’s a concept that I really wish it’s going to be real because having a single “host gaming server” for the entire house of gamers to stream all their games from, will definitely save money. We don’t need a dedicated gaming laptop or PC for each gamer in the house.
Come to think of it, the Concept Nyx does sound like a hybrid between console and gaming PC now. I wonder if the Concept Nyx allows any sort of hardware upgrades like a gaming PC.
Alienware Concept Nyx is still a “concept”. The final product will most probably differ from what is shown here.
