Elevate your hand if a gaming PC is at present heating your property

A couple of weeks in the past, our furnace (technically a ductless warmth pump) stopped working on the worst attainable time of the yr. However no less than one room stays good and toasty all winter lengthy — because of my gaming PC.

Now, The Wall Road Journal is reporting this would possibly really be a development: some bitcoin miners and players are warming their rooms, rising tomatoes, and even heating a rooster coop through the pandemic.

It made me marvel: what number of Verge readers are doing the identical?

Me, I maintain my PC operating all evening lengthy, folding proteins to assist research COVID-19, which I extremely suggest. (I simply crossed 175 million factors this week.) However I’ve to confess the room hasn’t been as heat since I swapped my very own GeForce GTX 1080 again in. The impossible-to-find AMD Radeon RX 6800 undoubtedly put out extra warmth, and we really needed to crack a window once I had an Nvidia RTX 3080 folding these proteins. I can’t communicate for each mannequin, however the Founder’s Version runs sizzling.

Right here’s hoping Mitsubishi delivers a brand new management board for my warmth pump quickly.
