High-End Gaming Computers Banned In Six States, Including Oregon

(Undated) -- Oregon is among half a dozen states that are banning high-end, pre-built gaming personal computers. Niche Gamer reports Oregon is joining California, Vermont, Hawaii, Colorado and Washington state in banning the products because of the large amount of electricity they use. This follows a study published in 2019 that shows computer gaming consumed four-point-one terawatt hours in 2016, which cost about 700-million dollars in energy bills. Gaming consoles are exempt from the law.
