You can play GTA 5, Valorant, and Call of Duty without a PC. Isn’t it seem impossible? Now hold on to your seat as we take you on a journey where you will learn how to do it.

Edge computing facilitates the processing of delay-sensitive and bandwidth-hungry applications near the data source by pre-processing data. Edge computing is exactly what it sounds like: having a high-configuration computer at the network’s edge. Cloud computing provides scalable computing and storage resources. The right combination of cloud- and edge-based applications is key to maximum performance.

Now the question is why Edge Computing or cloud computing is needed for playing games or is it effective? Edge computing could eventually reduce the workload and battery drain on your mobile device while providing a high-end user experience. Not only for the mobile user but also for those who don’t have a high-configuration PC to play games. For video games that use extreme processing power, edge computing moves all that work to the cloud. This reduces the strain on your device. And the geographic proximity and low-latency network access to a 5G connection means a better mobile gaming experience. And you get it without the lag.

It not only charges the stream of the gaming industry but also creates a Storm in the field of IoT, autonomous drive, weather forecast, AI, AR, and many more. Basically, cloud computing is used for data-based types of service. Today, there are several examples of cloud computing applications used by both businesses and individuals. One type of cloud service would be streaming platforms for audio or video, where the actual media files are stored remotely. Another would be data storage platforms like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, or Box.
