Alienware Unveils Concept Nyx

Alienware is developing Concept Nyx which will allow users to stream up to four games at once while seamlessly changing between screens.

Concept Nyx
We have been looking at how to power four game streams simultaneously, smart switching among devices, and drawing from a central library of all your games regardless of where you purchase them. Imagine no more fighting with your family or roommates over game time (you can still fight over groceries and laundry).

Alienware is working towards a solution to a common gaming problem: allowing multiple players in the same household both access and their games simultaneously. The key is ‘Concept Nyx’, a project Alienware’s Experience Innovation Group (EIG) currently has in the works. With Concept Nyx, players will seamlessly shift the games they are playing between screens throughout the household. In a press release, Alienware calls this project “The future of gaming.”

Concept Nyx will allow for high-performance game processing within homes and shared local networks. Edge computing will be essential to the project’s success. Due to local processing Concept Nyx could offer lower latency, greater bandwidth and better responsiveness.

Accordingly, Alienware’s solution will solve performance issues that occur in cloud gaming by focusing on local networks. This could severely reduce game lag and even reduce multiplayer latency to single-digit milliseconds.

Stream Multiple Games At Once

With Concept Nyx, Alienware is attempting to allow for the streaming of up to four games from a game library while allowing for smart switching among devices. The company hopes to allow users to access all their games from a central game library despite purchases potentially occurring via different platforms.

Concept Nyx aims to be an effortless gaming experience. With an app install on each device, Nyx would provide instant access to a user’s games with smooth transitions. Alienware believes this upcoming project will “tear down barricades so that everyone can game on their own terms,” according to their press release.

The company believes Concept Nyx holds appeal for hardcore and casual gamers alike. Alienware is excited about the potential innovations this platform could bring to the gaming industry.
