Forget Ampere and RTX 3000, Nvidia’s next graphics card is… another GTX 1650?

Next-gen graphics card fever has gripped the internet hard over the last couple of months, with rumours flying this way and that about the upcoming Nvidia Ampere GPUs and the ray-tracing-capable AMD Navi cards. But the latest GPU gossip doing the rounds isn't anything to do with Nvidia's RTX 3000 series. Oh no. Instead, it would seem Nvidia are preparing yet another variant of their…

Feature: It's really not complicated

Have You Played… Arise: A Simple Story?

Arise: A Simple Story is a game about the three Ls. No, not Lemons, Lemons, Lemons (a small joke for RPS Vid Bud fans, there), but life, love, and loss. You know, the BIGGIES. In it, you're reliving the memories of a sweet old man as he journeys on to the after life, taking in everything from the breathless rush of childhood, where you're bounding…

Death Stranding’s DLSS tech will turn any RTX card into a 4K 60fps machine

We've still got two weeks to go until Kojima's post-apocalyptic deliver 'em up Death Stranding comes out on PC, but as my early performance tests showed yesterday, even GTX 1060 owners should be able to run the game at 60fps on max settings at 1080p. However, Nvidia have since confirmed that Death Stranding will also be getting DLSS 2.0 support when it comes out on…

Death Stranding runs beautifully on PC, even on a GTX 1060

Kojima Productions' esoteric postman simulator Death Stranding isn't out on PC until July 14th, but I've been strolling around an early preview build of the game for the last couple of days and man alive, it's really very heartening to see such a good-looking PS4 game run at a proper 60fps on PC, lemme tell ya. It bodes extremely well for Horizon Zero Dawn's eventual…

Cyberpunk 2077 gets another ray tracing glow up with new screens

If last week's dose of Cyberpunk 2077 RTX goodness wasn't quite enough for you, Nvidia have released some more ray traced screenshots of the game's fancy lighting effects in action.

Feature: A 60% keyboard that's great for games but not much else

Hands on with the HyperX x Ducky One 2 Mini keyboard

How small is too small for a gaming keyboard? Personally, I think my lower limit stops at tenkeyless jobs like the Logitech G915 TKL or my current best gaming keyboard champion, the Fnatic miniStreak.
