Dell Stops Some U.S. Gaming PC Shipments Over New Efficiency Rules | Technology News

(Reuters) – PC maker Dell Technologies Inc said it has stopped shipping some versions of its powerful gaming systems to California and five other states because the products do not meet new energy efficiency standards.

The Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 gaming desktop, which is among the affected products, costs $1,819.99, according to Dell’s website.

Residential computers and computer monitors account for up to 2.9 percent of the electricity consumption in the most populous U.S. state, according to a California report.

In addition to California, Dell will no longer ship the products to customers in Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont and Washington state.

Dell said it will have new models and configurations that “will meet or exceed these regulations, in line with our long-term focus to address energy and emissions.”
