Overclocked PC’s Increasing?

A recent study done for HWInisight’s Quarterly Report, the amount of overclocked PCs have increased the past 2 years. From Q1 of 2013-Q1 2014, the amount of OC’d PCs increased 50% while 2014-2015 increased 100%.

 

HWBot Director Pieter-Jan Plaisier had this to say…

 

“PC component makers and vendors have, over the past several years, seen their key markets – mainstream (high-volume) and gaming (high-margin) – steadily cannibalized by alternatives including tablets, notebooks and games consoles. With their market shares and margins under constant pressure, the healthy overclocking market represents an opportunity hardware vendors simply cannot continue to underutilize with outdated product positioning and marketing strategies.”
