The PC gaming market is making a comeback; as it raised to the $30 Billion in past year. Nvidia and AMD are challenging each other with graphics card at every conceivable price point, and then you have Intel bordering the edge of imagination in the chip business.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise, that a new report (from Jon Peddie Research) valued the gaming market at $30 billion in 2016. This is the first time that the barrier was crossed in a single year, a milestone which was originally expected to be reached in 2018.
