Nvidia RTX 2070 Super vs 2080 Super: How much faster is Nvidia’s new 4K graphics card?

Nvidia's RTX 2080 Super card is finally here. Offering superior speeds for roughly the same price as the original RTX 2080, the RTX 2080 Super is pretty much the 4K graphics card to beat right now outside of Nvidia's crazy expensive RTX 2080 Ti - especially as it currently has no real competition from the likes of AMD right now, either. In fact, its closest…

Feature: Super charged ray tracing

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super review: Faster 4K for no extra cost

It seems like an eternity has passed since the initial launch of Nvidia's RTX Super cards, but here we are at last with the final GPU in the trilogy, the RTX 2080 Super. It's still not the most powerful graphics card in Nvidia's RTX arsenal - that honour continues to be held by the RTX 2080 Ti - but compared to the rest of Nvidia's…

Feature: No beefy graphics card required

Gears 5 graphics performance looks as slick as a well-oiled Lancer

Good news for anyone looking forward to playing Gears of War 5 later this year, as this weekend's multiplayer tech test has been showing some very promising results in the old graphics card performance department. I played a chunk of it yesterday and saw lots of lovely high frame rates from both my 6GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 970 GPUs, showing you don't…

No ray tracing for Wolfenstein: Youngblood at launch

Wolfenstein: Youngblood may be one of Nvidia's current poster children for their ultra shiny ray tracing technology, what with it being one of the free games you get when you buy any Nvidia RTX graphics card right now, but it turns out the game won't actually have said ray tracing support when it launches this Friday on July 26. Speaking in an interview with GamesBeat,…

Feature: The second coming of SSDs?

Gigabyte Aorus NVMe Gen 4 review: The first PCIe 4.0 SSD has arrived

One of the big attractions of choosing a new AMD Ryzen 3000 build at the moment is the fact it supports the new, super fast PCIe 4.0 standard. You'll need to pair your new 3rd Gen Ryzen CPU with one of AMD's equally new (not to mention expensive) X570 motherboards to make use of it, of course, but the potential benefits are massive - particularly…

Hold onto your RTX cards, Control’s PC requirements are heavier than its creepy fridge

When Nvidia announced they were extending their Control / Wolfenstein: YoungBlood game bundle to all new RTX card purchases, I made an educated guess-timate that Remedy's upcoming spooky, telekinesis shooter Control would probably require a heftier dose of ray tracing magic than its Nazi-infested stablemate. Shock horror, I was right, as Remedy have finally revealed their minimum and recommended PC requirements for Control, and hoo…

Feature: Ryzen up the ranks

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X review: A fantastic mid-range gaming CPU

After years of playing catch-up to their Intel rivals, AMD have definitely come out swinging with the launch of their new Ryzen 3000 CPUs. Their high-end Ryzen 7 3700X, for example, made a pretty good impression when I reviewed it a couple of weeks ago, and as an overall value for money play is probably well worth considering over Intel's Core i7-9700K, even if its…

Amazon Prime Day 2019: Best PC gaming deals

There is light at the end of the tunnel, deals friends, as today marks the second and final day of Amazon Prime Day 2019. It's been a long old slog for your deals herald, what with the Amazon worker strikes going on in one corner, and the mad frenzy of deals hunters scrabbling to break down the deals doors on the other, but the end…

Best gaming headset 2019: Our top wired and wireless headsets for PC

It's sometimes easy to forget about your PC's audio setup when it comes to building a new rig, but having one of today's best gaming headsets plugged into your system can make just as big a difference to your overall gaming experience as a shiny new graphics card or a super fast SSD. The problem, of course, is finding a gaming headset that's both comfortable…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 12th July 2019

The Steam Summer Sale may be over for another year, but that doesn't mean the deals wheels have stopped turning. Oh no! If anything, there are even more deals going on now than ever. At least if you're still hunting for some good PC games deals, anyway. With Amazon Prime Day just around the corner, I haven't included any hardware deals this week, because at…

Nvidia extend RTX Super games bundle to all regular RTX graphics cards

When Nvidia first announced their RTX Super cards, they also unveiled a brand new game bundle to go with them. Whereas regular RTX cards only came with a free copy of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, anyone who decided to plump for one of their new Super GPUs, such as the RTX 2060 Super or RTX 2070 Super, would also get a free copy of Control on top.…

Nvidia RTX 2070 vs 2070 Super vs AMD RX 5700 XT: Which is best?

Over the last seven days, you might have noticed there have been a lot of new graphics cards shaking up our [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] list. First we had Nvidia's pair of RTX Super cards, the RTX 2060 Super and the RTX 2070 Super, and just a couple of days ago they were joined by AMD's RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT. Yesterday, I…

Logitech G Pro X review: Make way for our new best gaming headset

It had to happen eventually. After an incredible 18 month stint at the top of our best gaming headset list, the Steelseries Arctis 7 must now give up its throne to the brand-new Logitech G Pro X headset. What a thing this is. Not only is this a great-sounding gaming headset, but it's also incredibly comfortable and has arguably the best quality microphone I've ever…

Feature: And should you upgrade to an RTX 2060 Super or RX 5700 XT?

Nvidia RTX 2060 vs AMD RX 5700: Which one should you buy?

It's all gone a bit Game of Thrones in the world of [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"]s this week. Having enjoyed a very comfortable stint on the 1440p Iron Throne ever since it rose to power in February of this year, Nvidia's RTX 2060 was just about to assure its legacy with the birth of the RTX 2060 Super card when AMD pitch up and…

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X review: The long-awaited Core i7 killer?

Earlier this week, I put together a list of what I think are the [block id="701123" title="Best gaming CPU"]s you can buy today. At the top end of the scale was Intel's Core i7-9700K, a £350 / $365 processor that, at least in my admittedly rather limited, non-water-cooled PC, was easily the fastest CPU for gaming that didn't cost an absolute fortune *cough*Intel Core i9-9900K,…

Feature: But you probably still shouldn't buy it

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X review: Finally, some competition for Intel’s Core i9-9900K

Should you ever spend $500 on a gaming CPU? Personally, I think you'd be mad to spend that kind of money on a processor, especially when Intel's Core i7-9700K offers such incredible gaming performance for about two thirds of the cost. If you are one of these so-called power users with $500-odd to spare on getting the absolute bestest [block id="701123" title="Best gaming CPU"] money…

Feature: Turning up the heat on Nvidia's RTX Super GPUs

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT review: XTra is the new Super

Man alive, I was a bit worried about AMD's Radeon RX 5700 XT for a minute there. Not from a pricing point of view, you understand. Even before AMD did their unexpected Navi price cut on Friday, I was always semi-confident that this supposed RTX 2070 rival would be able to hold its own against Nvidia's RTX Super competitor simply by virtue of already being…

AMD Radeon RX 5700 review: Move over, RTX 2060

What a whirlwind week it's been over in [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] land. Just as we were getting all excited about the launch of AMD's Navi cards, Nvidia went and crashed the party with their pair of RTX Super cards. Offering superior performance for roughly the same price as AMD's Navi GPUs, it looked like it was curtains for AMD before they'd even had…

Shots fired as AMD cut price of Navi GPUs just before launch to combat Nvidia’s RTX Super cards

AMD's Navi cards are just over 24 hours away from release right now, but after having been gazumped by Nvidia's RTX Super graphics cards earlier in the week, AMD have just announced a little gazumping of their own in the form of an unexpected price cut for both the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT. How about that for a nice bit of friendly competition,…
