Best PC gaming deals of the week – 8th November 2019

Blessed day, fellow deals hunters. The chilly November winds may be kicking up a storm outside, but finally, after days of patches, unexpectedly quitting launchers, your deals herald has finally got Red Dead Redemption 2 working on her PC. And to celebrate this most yeehaw of rootin' tootin' days, I come bearing Red Dead 2-based deals (at least if you're in the UK). Fear not,…

Nvidia GTX 1660 Super vs 1660 Ti: Which is best?

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Super is in a bit of an odd place right now. It's a teensy bit faster than its non-Super sibling, the regular old GTX 1660, but not quite fast enough to really a proper impact on your minute-to-minute gaming performance. But given the GTX 1660 was already pretty close in speed to its more expensive cousin, the GTX 1660 Ti, is…

AMD’s Ryzen 9 3950X will launch on the same day as their 3rd Gen Threadripper CPUs

The final member of AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPU family, the ultra powerful Ryzen 9 3950X, finally has a release date - as do AMD's freshly-announced 3rd Gen Threadrippers. So far, AMD have only teased two Threadripper/Dataduke™/Bitbasher™/Loadmother™ CPUs, but these will be launching on November 25th together with their Ryzen 3950X sibling. If you like a CPU with more cores than your can shake a stick,…

Feature: To Super or not to Super, that is the question

Nvidia GTX 1660 vs 1660 Super: Which one should you buy?

It's only been eight months since Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 graphics card first came out, but already it's got a Super-fied successor in the form of the GTX 1660 Super. I've already gone into a pretty detailed breakdown of how both cards compare in my Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super review, but sometimes it's just easier to see things laid out in some nice bar…

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super review: A decent 1080p card that’s utterly superfluous

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I do not understand why the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super needs to exist. Yes, it's a mildly more powerful version of the original GTX 1660, now boasting 6GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at a nippy 14 Gbps instead of 6GB of the slower GDDR5 type that ran at just 8 Gbps, and yes, Nvidia's decision…

Nvidia have come up with a list of graphics cards for playing Red Dead 2 at 60fps and it ain’t purdy

Saddle up cowpokes, because Red Dead Redemption 2 rides out on PC at 1pm UK time today (5am PST). I must admit, I let out a big sigh of relief when I saw Rockstar's PC requirements for Red Dead 2 the other week, as their recommended graphics card topped out at just a 6GB GTX 1060. Easy, I thought. However, Nvidia have just published their…

The Ducky One 2 isn’t perfect, but it’s still one of the best keyboards I’ve ever used

I'm just going to come out and say it. The Ducky One 2 is probably one of the [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"]s I've ever used. It's available in a range of sizes and numerous different key cap colours, including a tenkeyless version, a 65% model and the even dinkier Ducky One 2 Mini, but it's the full-sized RGB model I've had on my desk…

Yakuza Kiwami headlines Humble’s Monthly bundle for December

Humble's Monthly games bundle will be morphing into the more expensive Humble Choice at some point before the end of the year, but until that happens it's business as usual for the monthly subscription service. In what's quite possibly going to be the last Monthly bundle as we currently know it, the early unlock games for December have now been announced as Yakuza Kiwami, My…

Modern Warfare RTX: A guide to Call of Duty’s RTX ray tracing performance

There are two types of ray tracing game that have emerged over 2019. On the one hand you've got your big, bombastic feast-for-the-eyes type games like Minecraft RTX, Control and Metro Exodus, and on the other you've got your subtle, squint-and-you-miss-it jobs like Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its ray traced shadows fall squarely into the…

Antlion’s ModMic Wireless shows other headset mics how it’s done

Gaming headsets are all well and good for barking at your mates when you're playing games online, but I'm willing to bet a fair few of you have a separate favourite pair of headphones for listening to music with as well. After all, even the [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"]s aren't often fit to be seen in public, nor are they necessarily compatible with any…

Razer resurrect their classic RGB mouse mat (along with some spoooky deals)

Razer have brought their original FireFly RGB mouse mat back from the dead today, making it brighter and thinner than ever before. Indeed, Razer say the FireFly V2 is now the brightest RGB mouse mat in their entire line-up of rainbow-trimmed surfaces, thanks in no small part to its 19 lighting zones. The £50 / $50 hard mat also has a built-in cable catch to…

Minecraft RTX is the poster child ray tracing needs, but it’s a brute to run

In terms of pure visual spectacle, Minecraft RTX is hands down the most impressive ray tracing game I've seen to date. Unlike other RTX-enabled games where you need big green boxes or a magnifying glass to see the fancy lighting effects, Minecraft RTX puts them right in your face. It's like having a Creeper explode point blank in your retina every time you toggle it…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC hasn't improved much in 2019. Despite there being more HDR gaming monitors than ever before, the very [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR continue to be quite expensive compared to non-HDR monitors, and the situation around Windows 10 support for it is still a bit of a mess. However, provided you're willing to fight through all that, then the next step on your…

Nvidia adds ReShade filters to GeForce Experience

In addition to launching the GTX 1660 Super today, Nvidia's latest GeForce driver brings some neat new features to their GeForce Experience app. Chief among them is built-in support for ReShade filters, the popular post-processing shader tool that modders often use to enhance or change the overall look of a game. Instead of 'injecting' or installing them manually into each individual game, you'll now be…

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…

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…
