In addition to announcing new X Series laptops with improved specifications, Alienware also showcased a new cloud gaming-like system at CES 2022 that allows users to seamlessly play high-end games on n ‘ any device connected to their home networks. Called Concept Nyx, the system is still in its infancy. However, Alienware imagines that Concept Nyx would allow multiple players in a household to play simultaneously on any device of their choice over their home Wi-Fi network.
Concept Nyx by Alienware unveiled
Alienware describes Concept Nyx as “a radical skunkworks project from the depths of Alienware labs” this would allow future gamers to easily switch between devices while playing high-end games at home. Just imagine that you are playing an AAA title like Cyberpunk 2077 on your PC and want to move into your living room for a more comfortable experience. With Concept Nyx, you can do this by seamlessly transferring your current game to your smart TV connected to your home Wi-Fi network.
The idea is to make it easy for gamers to switch between devices while gaming and continue gaming where they left off on the new device. While this looks like a cloud gaming-like system similar to Google Stadia or Amazon Luna, it is a bit different as it relies on your home network to stream high-end games instead of relying on a remote server. located miles from your accommodation.
Currently, the system uses a desktop-like tower, which is the Nyx server, to stream multiple games simultaneously using a low latency network. This server would sit near your modem and be connected to it via an Ethernet cable to allow you and other members of your house to stream games using the home Wi-Fi network to the connected devices. Additionally, users will be able to stream multiple games simultaneously on a single device using split screen views. The company is currently working to allow gamers to stream at least four games at a time on a single device.
Alienware recently demonstrated the technology using the black-colored monolithic server tower and reused controllers from its Concept UFO, which is a Switch-like gaming console that was unveiled at CES last year. However, the company has not revealed what powers the mysterious Concept Nyx server.
Now, while Concept Nyx looks exciting for a home cloud gaming experience in the future, it is still in its conceptual phase. Therefore, it is currently unclear when Alienware will launch such a system, how much would it cost, or whether or not it will be a paid service.
