PC Won The Golden Joystick Award For Best Gaming Hardware—Why Here’s It Deserves It And More
PC Master Race is a computer game.
According to PCGamer, the PC was one of the biggest victors at the recently ended Golden Joystick Awards, winning the title of Best Gaming Hardware Of All Time, defeating out the world’s best gaming consoles.
The original PlayStation, the PS4, Nintendo’s Super NES, and the legendary PlayStation 2 rounded out the top five.
The Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, N64, and DS, the Game Cube, and the Sega GenesisMega Drive are among the other notable consoles on the list, according to GamesRadar.
This post is not designed to incite any kind of game system conflict. Its major goal is to demonstrate why PC is deserving of the title of Best Gaming Hardware Of All Time, as well as other accolades.
It’s All About Power When It Comes to PC Hardware
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles are the most “PC-like” console generations we’ve ever seen, allowing them to match the power of a full-fledged gaming PC—something no other gaming device has ever done.
The primary reason is that they use PC-based gear. This is the single most compelling argument for why the PC deserved the Golden Joystick Award.
Take a look at Tom’s Guide’s official specs for Sony and Microsoft’s current-gen consoles:
PlayStation 5: 3.5 GHz 8-core AMD Zen 2 CPU, unique AMD RDNA2 GPU with 10.3 TFLOP, 16 GB GDDR6 RAM, special 825 GB SSD
Xbox Series X features an 8-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.8 GHz, a bespoke AMD RDNA 2 GPU with 12 TFLOPs, 16 GB GDDR6 RAM, and a special 1 TB NVMe SSD.
Nobody can deny that all of this is PC-based hardware. The CPUs alone are about equivalent to a desktop AMD Ryzen 7 3rd generation chip. The integrated graphics are powerful enough to compete with desktop AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT or RX 6600 XT graphics cards.
Finally, the super-fast SSDs are the first of their kind to be installed on a console, according to PS5 chief architect Mark Cerny, both of which are important components in creating a real “next-gen” gaming experience.

Consoles have caught up, but the PC still has the upper hand.
It’s a great time to be a gamer right now (except for the fact that you can’t get a next-gen console). However, the PS5 and. News from Brinkwire in a nutshell.
