Update: Walmart Overpowered Gaming PCs No Longer Available Due To Quality

[Update]: Walmart has issued a statement clarifying that its Overpowered Gaming PCs were removed to update product information. The gaming PCs are back in stores.

We stand behind the quality of the Overpowered gaming computers designed by Esports Arena. We briefly removed the OP desktops to update product information. They are now back on the site.

Walmart introduced its “Overpowered” line of gaming PCs, which obviously were expensive. However, these Walmart “Overpowered” gaming PCs are no longer available as Walmart has pulled them from sale.

Walmart didn’t reveal why it decided to pull its “Overpowered” gaming PCs from the sale. It is likely that Walmart did it following consumers’ concerns over the price-quality ratio as these systems were criticized since launch.

These “Overpowered” gaming PCs from Walmart had questionable quality for its internal components. Many tech websites and Youtubers tested these systems and found that the quality of some internal components wasn’t up to par with the price they were asking.

Furthermore, the cable management was just passable. While Walmart has quietly pulled its gaming PCs but, it is clear that they were pulled because these systems weren’t worth the price Walmart was asking. However, Walmart is still selling its “Overpowered” line of gaming laptops.

Speaking of PCs, the CPU market is being dominated by AMD Ryzen. However, that is not enough for AMD has AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs along with complete specs and prices have leaked.

According to the leak, AMD is bringing Ryzen 3 3300X, 3300G, 3300, Ryzen 5 3600, 3600X, 3600G, Ryzen 7 3700, and 3700X. The leak has revealed full prices and specs for these APUs and CPUs.

Also, these AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs are based on the 7nm process node and will be the world’s first 7nm CPUs to launch.

However, this is not the only AMD leak making rounds on the internet. According to reports, AMD has prepared its X570 Chipset for Computex 2019 and this AMD X570 Chipset will come with PCIe 4.0 support.

The AMD X570 Chipset will be backward compatible with previous-gen Ryzen CPUs along with the upcoming Ryzen 3000 CPUs as AMD plans to support the AM4 socket till 2020.

As I mentioned before, AMD is taking over the CPU market. A recent example of this is the stats revealed by German eTailer Mindfactory for November 2018. According to the report, AMD Ryzen outsold Intel CPUs by 2:1.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 was the best-selling CPU for AMD while Ryzen 7 2700X brought in the most revenue. Also, the gap between AMD and Intel is very close in terms of revenue.

Intel accounted for 44% of CPU revenue while AMD accounted for 56% of the overall CPU revenue. This close gap could be due to lower prices for AMD Ryzen compared to Intel.

Aside from the CPU market, AMD has also dominated the console market as Xbox One and PS4 use AMD’s Jaguar CPUs. It is highly likely that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett will use AMD Ryzen Chips. While it hasn’t been confirmed but, AMD has hinted that next-gen consoles will drop in 2020.
