Feature: An invigorating first step towards a mechanical keyboard?

MSI Vigor GK40 review: Membranical meets RGB

Let's face it, we all fear change and spending lots of money, which is probably why many of us still play games on cheap, squidgy membrane keyboards instead of sharp, expensive clicky-clacky mechanical ones. There's nothing wrong with membrane keyboards, of course, but they're not always best-suited to faster-paced games that require nice, quick and responsive finger-tapping. As a result, a good way of dipping…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 19th October 2018

It's that time of the week again where I swap my hardware hat for my deals herald hat. What does a deals herald hat look like, I hear you ask? Good question. It's sort of like a chaperon, if you must know. I asked for a bicorne, but Graham was having none of it. Said I'd only go and stage a revolution to turn RPS…

Feature: Quiet as a mouse

Best gaming mouse 2018: Top wired and wireless mice

It's a terrible thing to admit, but ever since I got my first PC, I've never really given much thought to what kind of gaming mouse I've had on my desk. Bog standard mice have always been more than enough for me over the years, but I've since realised that having a few extra buttons and a greater variety of sensitivity speeds can not only…

Logitech G Pro Wireless review: The best wireless gaming mouse ever made

One of the biggest complaints often levied at wireless gaming mice is that they're simply too slow and heavy compared to their wired rivals. Despite being free of snagging cables that somehow manage to get in the way of everything at all times, that liberty often comes at the cost of latency and reliability, with the extra disadvantage that they've now got to carry a…

Have You Played… Shadowgrounds?

For a developer who can't seem to get enough of wizards and weird physics puzzles, you might be surprised that Frozenbyte's first game wasn't anything of the sort. Indeed, the Finnish studio best known for puzzler series Trine and more recent fantasy co-op shenanigans Nine Parchments cut their teeth on a sci-fi, top-down shooter called Shadowgrounds. They even made a sequel! Shadowgrounds: Survivor, they called…

AMD Athlon 200GE review: The perfect Vega CPU for Fortnite and indie games alike

When AMD launched their Vega-infused Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G processors earlier in the year, I was left mighty impressed. Here were two relatively cheap CPUs that could sort of play games at decent enough settings at 1920x1080 via their integrated graphics chips without forcing you to spend hundreds of pounds / dollars on a dedicated GPU - a feat made all the…

Nvidia’s RTX 2070 seems to be only slightly faster than a GTX 1080

With just a day to go until the launch of Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, those eager to see what Nvidia's new Turing GPU is capable of will no doubt have seen a flurry of reviews running through the internet halls this afternoon - and the early verdict seems to be it's just a little bit faster than Nvidia's current GTX 1080.

Feature: Getting a grip

MSI Clutch GM60 review: A flexible gaming mouse that ultimately falls a bit flat

As £70 / $69 gaming mice go, the MSI Clutch GM60 is arguably one of the most adaptable mice I've seen in a while. It's ambidextrous for starters, making it a good pick for right and left-handed PC peeps alike, but you also get not one, but two pairs of magnetic side covers, an extra USB cable (one braided, one rubber) and an additional top…

Whirlwind FX Vortx review: A blow-by-blow account of this PC wind machine

When I was a child, 4D cinemas were all the rage. You know the ones, with the seat-rumbling and the spurts of air in your face when something explodes onscreen and the spaceship you and 40 other people are meant to be piloting starts crash-landing into the moon. Well, Whirlwind FX have come up with the PC equivalent of 4D cinema that you can stick…

Have You Played… #SelfieTennis?

Some might say this VR lark is all a bit of a fad. Those someones, however, haven't played #SelfieTennis. It was one of the first games released for the HTC Vive back in the heady days of 2016, and goodness me I was absolutely sold the minute I put on the headset. If you're the owner of a pair of VR cybergoggles but don't have…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 12th October 2018

What's this? A new weekly deals master? Or should that be mistress? Sounds a bit wrong if you ask me. Let's stick with weekly deals... herald. Yes, I like the sound of being a herald. Does that mean I get my own hilariously long trumpet like the ones you get in medieval processions? I hope so. Then I can stick it out of the RPS…

Overclockers Kinetic Z1 review: 1080p gaming for just £600

If the thought of building your own PC fills you with dread, then buying one pre-built can save you a lot of time and hassle. You don't even have to spend that much to get a good one, either, as this £600 Kinetic Z1 from UK system builder Overclockers UK is perfectly tuned for 1080p gaming straight out of the box. I've got the basic…

Black Friday 2018: How to get the best PC gaming deals on graphics cards, monitors, SSDs and more

If you've been thinking about building a new gaming PC recently, chances are you've probably put it off due to ongoing price hikes, stock shortages or simply not knowing which bits you should actually buy - which is why this year's Black Friday shopping bonanza might finally be the time to jump in and bag yourself a sack load of deals.

Crucial BX500 review: A great value SSD

Crucial's SSD line-up is in a bit of a funny place right now. As you may well have seen from our Best gaming SSD rankings, their mid-tier MX500 SSD is currently cheaper than their entry-level BX300 SSD in practically all size categories above 120GB, and their latest BX500 SSD on test today only muddies the waters further. You would think, given its name, that the…

Intel launch 9th Gen processors ahead of possible CPU shortage

Intel lifted the lid on their 9th Gen desktop processors this afternoon, giving us a glimpse of what's coming next after their current crop of 8th Gen Coffee Lake chips. Leading the pack is their flagship Intel Core i9-9900K, an 8-core, 16-thread CPU that can Turbo Boost all the way up to 5.0GHz. However, the news comes little over a week after Intel's CFO and…

Acer Predator X27 review: The Nvidia G-Sync HDR monitor that only lets you see half the fun

On paper, the Acer Predator X27 should be the bestest best gaming monitor to end all gaming monitors. It's got the same lovely 4K 144Hz IPS Nvidia G-Sync HDR panel with 384 dynamic backlight zones and 1000cd/m2 peak brightness as the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ, but in the UK it costs £200 less than its Asus rival. That might not be of much consolation to…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

When it comes to graphics performance, Assassin's Creed has always been a tough nut to crack on PC. Assassin's Creed Oranges was an absolute beast to get running smoothly when it came out last year, and it continues to be one of the most demanding games in my graphic cards benchmarking suite. This year's Ancient Greece-themed installment, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, is, thankfully, a little less…

Logitech G502 Hero review: Faster, stronger, but it is better?

As you might have guessed from the name, the Logitech G502 Hero is a slightly fancier version of Logitech's classic £50 / $50 G502 gaming mouse. For an extra £30 / $30, you can bag yourself a 16000 DPI sensor as opposed to a 12000 one, left and right clickers with a 50 million click endurance rating rather than 20 million, and an additional two…

Windows 10 October update finally adds ray-tracing support for Nvidia’s RTX Turing cards

If you've turned on your Windows 10 PC today, you've probably been hassled at least three times by now that it's time for another big old update - specifically, the Windows 10 October update. This time, however, it's actually got a bunch of neat gaming goodies in store, especially if you're one of the three people who have already bought one of Nvidia's GeForce RTX…

Nvidia’s RTX 2080 fails to make a dent on Steam’s September hardware charts

Valve released a fresh batch of Steam hardware stats last night, detailing the most popular components used by participating survey filler-inners. Surprise, surprise, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti are nowhere to be seen on its graphics card list. Instead, PC peeps seem to be doubling down on cards at the other end of the price spectrum, with the GTX 1060, GTX 1050Ti and…
