DTK Computer Middle East has unveiled a desktop PC aimed specifically at Middle East gamers - the AMD-powered ‘Racer SSS Gaming Station’. Buyers of the rig have choice over their particular Racer’s system configuration, with an ultra-overclockable AMD Athlon 64 FX or Athlon 64 processor on offer, accompanied by up to 4Gbytes of RAM and up to six internal SATA (Serial ATA) hard disk drives. This kit's creators haven’t stopped there however, as the system also includes Creative’s SoundBlaster Audigy SE audio and supports two PCI Express x16 video cards. According to a 2005 PriceWaterhouseCoopers report, quoted by DTK this week, the video game market in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region is projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 13% until 2010, whereupon it will total a market of US$13 billion. DTK reckons computer gaming will account for a sizeable percentage of this massive market. “The PC gaming market in the Middle East has been witnessing a significant boom in the recent years, fuelled by the increased IT penetration rates and the growing use of computers by youngsters for entertainment,” said Nimer Al Attal, the managing director of DTK Computer Middle East. “With the Racer SSS we are taking gaming innovation to new heights with its powerful AMD processor and a host of technologically advanced features.” “The youth are increasingly aware about high performance processors and multimedia add-ons which enhance their gaming experience. The Hyper Transport and Hyper Streaming Technology of the Racer SSS will ensure an enhanced gaming experience, especially with the high requirements of the games being produced nowadays,” Attal added. The first ever Windows Gaming Championship (WGC) took place in the UAE in June of this year. The event attracted 240 UAE gamers to Dubai to battle it out for thousands of dollars in cash and hardware prizes. The contest is thought to have been the largest PC gaming event in the UAE to date.
