For some gamers, an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) might not just be at the top of their shopping list when building their gaming PC. But for others, especially those who understand its truest purpose, know, for sure, that a UPS is one of the most vital components of a legit gaming rig.
But what is it really? And what benefits will you get from a UPS for your gaming PC?
Save your Game, Play Without any Disruptions. For Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, a UPS is a must-have device that helps avoid losing any unsaved progress of your game, especially during power loss and interruptions. It keeps your PC running during a power outage, giving you enough time to save the game and shutting the computer down safely.
After all, there is nothing more irritating and heartbreaking than your PC shutting down in the middle of a clash on DOTA 2 or surviving the last moments to win Fortnite without saving its progress. And because the UPS can help you continuously play as it ensures that power is always available, you can also play your game without any disruptions.
Protects your Rig. Another essential benefit that you will get from a UPS is the protection it can provide for PC. According to Vertiv, more than saving your game’s progress, a UPS can protect your gaming rig, in general, from sudden power loss and even the minute fluctuations in your outlet that can damage it.
Protecting each of the components of your hard-earned gaming rig is integral, especially since building it may cost you up to PhP75,000 (or more!). With the help of a UPS device, you will also get to protect any other accessories connected to your gaming PC. Whether it’s your new 4K gaming monitor, a gaming router, or your favorite gaming console, among others, a UPS may also help protect them too.
“To put it simply, a UPS serves as an added lifeline. It’s a device that can save your game, your PC, and other peripherals and accessories that make up your rig, from sudden power loss and fluctuations, both the hardware or software components,” said Jason Lim, country manager of Vertiv Philippines.
For gamers looking to upgrade their gaming rig this 2021, Vertiv got you covered with its full-range Liebert UPS offerings.
