High-End Gaming Computers Banned In Cali, 5 More States

(Undated) — Some gamers may have a hard time buying a gaming PC thanks to a new energy bill. Niche Gamer reports the sale of high-end, pre-built gaming personal computers are now banned in California after the state’s energy bill went into effect. Five other states have also joined in banning those products. That includes Washington, Vermont, Hawaii, Colorado, and Oregon. This follows a study published in 2019 that shows computer gaming consumed four-point-one terrawatt hours in 2016, which cost about 700-million dollars in energy bills. Gaming consoles are exempt from the law.
