Surprise! Nvidia’s GTX 1660 Super and 1650 Super are real and I still don’t know why they exist

In March and April of this year, Nvidia released their excellent GTX 1660 graphics card and their slightly less impressive GTX 1650. While the latter wasn't much cop compared to AMD's existing RX 570 GPU, the former went straight in as our [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] choice for 1080p gaming. Now, for some reason, Nvidia have decided to replace those cards with even shinier…

Crucial snatch DDR4 RAM overclocking record from G.Skill just two weeks after it was set

On September 10th, RAM maker G.Skill proudly proclaimed that not only had they just set a new world record for the fastest RAM frequency, but that they were also the first ones to go over the 6.0GHz mark (6016.8MHz, if you want the exact number, or 6016.8MT/s, if you want to be 100% correct in your terminology). Their victory has been pretty short-lived, though, as…

Feature: Out of this world

The Outer Worlds PC requirements and how to get the best performance

The time to take a trip to The Outer Worlds has finally arrived. Not to be confused with the Outer Wilds, you understand. Oh no, that's a different space shuttle bus altogether. The Outer Worlds is Obsidian's new intergalactic RPG, the folks wot made Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity, and I've been taking a look at how well it runs on PC. The…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 25th October 2019

It's all about the spoooOOooOooOOooky gaming deals this week, you deals fiends, because this is the last weekend before we commence that most respected and hallowed of evening festivities where we stuff ourselves silly with sweets until our tummies burst in a spectacle of horror and gore. At least I think that's what Halloween is about, anyway. Your deals herald is too much of a…

Feature: Picking up the pace

Crucial’s P1 is a great value NVMe SSD, but it’s not without its faults

Super fast NVMe SSDs are still pretty pricey compared to your standard SATA drives, but thankfully there's a growing number of budget NVMe SSDs that are starting to bring those lighting fast read and write speeds to the masses. I've already tested the excellent value for money WD Blue SN500 and Adata XPG SX6000 Pro, but now I've got the Crucial P1 in for testing,…

There are quite a few catches involved, but provided you're willing to sign up for an Asus account, register any Asus product you own and install their free Armoury…

Feature: A gentle, but knotty murder mystery

Tangle Tower review

I love a good locked room mystery. The best ones aren't so much about the 'whodunnit', but the 'howdunnit'. The former's still important for a satisfying ending, of course, but unravelling what appears to be the impossible (how did they get in? How did they leave?) is a much more brain-pleasing knot to unpick than figuring out which of the many shifty faces in front…

Best graphics card 2019: Top AMD and Nvidia GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

Just when you thought it was safe, the race for best graphics card is starting to heat up again. At least when it comes to best budget graphics cards, anyway. Not only do we have the launch of AMD's Radeon RX 5500 to look forward to, but there are lots of rumours doing the rounds that Nvidia are also prepping their GTX 1660 Super to…

Buy Disco Elysium on GOG and get UnderRail for free

You don't need your deals herald to tell you that wordy isometric RPG Disco Elysium is finally a thing you can buy, did you know that to celebrate the release of ZA/UM's intriguing debut, GOG are giving away a free copy of Stygian Software's equally word isometric RPG UnderRail with every purchase? I thought not. Hurry, though, as this deal won't last for long. Read…

Feature: A rad(eon) Ryzen PC

PC Specialist’s Inferno R4 is a fantastic 1440p gaming PC for just over a grand

AMD have knocked it out of the park with their RX 5700 graphics card and Ryzen 5 3600X CPU this year, and if I were looking to build a PC for just over £1000 in the next month or so, I'd probably be very tempted to put both of them inside it. After all, the RX 5700 is currently our best graphics card recommendation for…

Feature: The next evolution of the gaming laptop?

The good, the bad and the ugly of tomorrow’s dual-screen gaming laptops

When I first saw HP's Omen X 2S dual-screen gaming laptop a couple of months ago, I thought they were having a laugh. After all, what could you possibly do with such a tiny secondary display above the main keyboard when you're playing games? It screamed 'gimmick' at the time, but after visiting Intel's Open House event last week (in between getting enslaved by the…

Felix The Reaper review

Felix The Reaper is a master of distraction. Instead of making him rush to move shadows about so he can set up elaborately fatal traps, all I want to do is watch this chubby lil' reaper bust endless moves to the beat of his Walkman. and I mean moves: it would be ridiculous to call these "idle animations", because this groovin' dealer of death simply…

Nvidia are planning more ray traced remasters of classic PC games like Quake II RTX

Whatever your feelings are on Quake II RTX, it looks like it won't be the only classic PC game getting Nvidia's fancy pants ray tracing treatment. A recently posted job ad for Nvidia's Lightspeed Studios has revealed a new "game remastering program" that aims to bring "some of the greatest titles from the past decades [...] into the ray tracing age". There's no word yet…

Feature: It is, as you say, glorious

Holey moley, Glorious’ Model O- mouse is an absolute beaut

At first glance, the Glorious Model O looks like it would be an absolute nightmare for PC gaming pet owners. With more holes in its ultra lightweight chassis than a block of Swiss cheese, I can already see myself trying to tweezer out clumps of cat hair from it that have somehow managed to waft in to one of its many honeycomb-shaped hollows. But when…
