PC hardware just isn’t very interesting these days. I ran a hardware site back in the late 90s, when 3D accelerators were just taking off. Every card was different, and every generation was a tremendous leap in performance over the one from last year. Gaming was transformed. That was exciting! These days, beyond the launch of a new GPU generation, who gives a shit?
Mobile is going the same way. Phones have stopped offering tremendous advancements every year. They’ve become boring.
There was some hope VR would revitalize PC hardware but we all know how that turned out-- they never made any great VR games, and they failed to refresh the hardware with anything cool. So now people use it for watching Netflix on airplanes and porn.
