Here’s a cheat sheet for the Compass Datacenters test and a chance to win a $500 Razer Gift Card

If you were paying attention at this year’s PC Gaming Show, you saw an opportunity from our friends at Compass Datacenters to win one of four $500 Razer Gift Cards. They weren’t kidding, of course. If you haven’t found a moment to jot down every detail between all the new trailers and exciting gameplay teasers, or need to know where to go for a chance to win, here’s all the details again.

First, if you need the quiz URL again, go to

Okay, a reminder of the questions you’ll need to answer for your chance to win one of those $500 gift cards and a serious peripheral upgrade for your PC. Some of these questions you will have picked up over the course of the PC Gaming Show, while others have been kept under wraps to keep you on your toes. I’m sorry for this.

Don’t worry though. You have five lives and the quiz is multiple choice. It’s kind of hard to fail.

  • Question 1: Datacenters provide an additional level of security. True or false?
  • Question 2: How much greater is the data capacity of 5G compared to current 4G networks?
  • Question 3: What percentage of players are women?
  • Question #4: How much has esports revenue increased since 2016?
  • Question #5: Which cities use the most bandwidth for gaming?

Do you know the speed of data fired by the radio waves around you well enough to get this question right without a Google search? What is your knowledge of global server storage? Do you know your esports from your pool shorts? Okay, that was a little over the top. But don’t worry, this is an open book exam and you can Google it if you really need to.

If you think you have these questions, head over to our friends at Compass Datacenters to enter your answers (opens in new tab). The quiz is just a few clicks and that’s it.

Once entries close and the winners are drawn, the lucky four will be contacted by email. Be sure to check your inbox regularly to find out about this.

And, of course, where would PC gaming be without massive datacenters? A lot of our hobby these days revolves around trillions of bits of data compressed on servers located all over the world, and all those regular updates we crave so badly need to be somewhere before they reach our PCs. Not to mention the potential of cloud gaming to shake up our experiences in the future.

Oh, and since we’re cool, and you’ve read this far, here are the answers. Unfortunately, we can’t put them upside down or backwards like we would in PC Gamer magazine, so don’t look down if you want to come up with these answers yourself.
