WD Black SN750 review: So close to the Samsung 970 Evo, yet so far

For reasons I cannot fathom and that are probably lost to the bowels of their marketing department, Western Digital have decided their high-performance Black line of NVMe SSDs were in need of a face lift for 2019, because apparently gum stick-sized storage drives don't look 'gamer-y' enough already. The result of their somewhat baffling nip and tuck is the Black SN750, which I think you'll…

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

We're not even a month into 2019 yet, but there's already been a flurry of activity in the world of best graphics cards thanks to two big announcements at this year's CES. The first came from Nvidia, who lifted the lid on their new mid-range champion, the RTX 2060 - and man alive is it a corker. Then AMD went and unveiled their next 4K…

GTX 1060 vs RTX 2060: How much faster is Nvidia’s next-gen GPU?

As you may have seen in my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 review yesterday, Nvidia's latest graphics card is really quite powerful. Despite being around £100 / $100 more expensive than its immediate predecessor, the GTX 1060, the boost in speed you get from the RTX 2060 is absolutely worth it in my books, especially if you're looking for a capable 2560x1440 card that can do…

Feature: Your new best graphics card for 1440p gaming

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 review: Just as good as the GTX 1070Ti for a fraction of the price

Ever since Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 came out in 2016, it's not only been the de facto, bestest best graphics card for flawless 1080p gaming, but also the go-to GPU for cash-strapped 1440p-ers, offering smooth, if slightly less shiny, frame rates for a much lower price than Nvidia's more capable GTX 1070 or GTX 1070Ti. It was a fantastic card when it launched for $249,…

In sync at last: Nvidia’s new driver that enables G-Sync on your Freesync is out now

There's a twist in the tale of the today's latest Nvidia driver, as it finally adds support for FreeSync monitors. For years now, there's been a GeForce tax if you wanted a screen with Nvidia's brand of adaptive sync - that is, the one that can adjust its refresh rate, and therefore in-game frame rate, with wild abandon, and more importantly without that icky screen-tearing…

Best gaming headset 2019: Our top PC picks

When you're looking for the best gaming headset money can buy, there are three things to keep in mind. It goes without saying that it needs to have top-notch audio quality, but it also needs to be comfortable and have a good built-in microphone. After all, there's no point getting a great-sounding headset that pinches your skull after 30 minutes, or one you can't use…

HyperX Cloud Mix review: An all-in-one Bluetooth and wired headset

If you've ever wished you could wear your gaming headset out and about without looking like a walking, talking RGB Christmas tree, then you might want to turn your attention to the HyperX Cloud Mix. Indoors, it connects to your PC via its two-pronged 3.5mm adapter; outdoors, its Bluetooth 4.2 support means you can also listen to stuff and take calls on your phone or…

CES 2019: Dell’s stuck a Core i9 desktop CPU in their new Alienware Area-51m laptop

While everyone else was busy adding Nvidia's new RTX graphics chips to their laptops at this year's CES, Dell's been busy with something else entirely for their new flagship Alienware Area-51m laptop. As well as being the first laptop to bear their new Alienware Legend design, it's also the world's first laptop to have a full-blown desktop Intel Core i9-9900K CPU crammed inside it. And…

CES 2019: I take it back, the Asus ROG Mothership is the maddest gaming laptop I’ve ever seen

The Asus ROG Mothership is a preposterous piece of technology. I know I said earlier in the week that the Acer Predator Triton 900 was the maddest gaming laptop I've ever seen, but this desktop replacement really takes the biscuit. Not only does this huge great thing need a kickstand to prop up its 4.7kg chassis, but its keyboard can also be folded in half…

CES 2019: Doom feels like a new game with Razer’s HyperSense haptic feedback tech

When I walked into Razer's HyperSense room at their CES booth, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Before me stood a desk and chair like any ordinary PC set up (albeit one solely comprised of Razer products) and two grinning demo guides. "Do you know Doom?" one of them said. Why, yes, I do, I like it a lot and know it well, I…

HP’s BFGD is now called the Omen X Emperium and it’s coming in February

One of the big things I was expecting to hear more about at this year’s CES was Nvidia’s BFGDs – or Big Format Gaming Displays, to use their proper name. Or maybe that’s not the right name to use any more, as we did hear a little bit about Nvidia’s BFGDs at CES this week, in that they’ve now been pulled under the banner of…

CES 2019: AMD give us a sneak peek of their 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop CPUs

AMD's 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs for desktops have arrived. Sort of. This morning, hot off the heels of AMD's Radeon 7 announcement, AMD boss lady Dr Lisa Su gave us our first look at their new 3rd Gen of Ryzen desktop CPU coming in mid 2019. If you were thinking of splashing out on one of Intel's Core i9-9900K CPUs, you might want to hold…

Microsoft show off their wall of GPU history

Microsoft's Direct3D team have covered some of their office walls with the hundreds of graphics cards they've gathered while working on the 3D API. That's 402 graphics cards spanning 35 years of technohistory. If you get misty-eyed at the sight of a Voodoo card, shed a tear for the Matrox Parhelia, marvel at graphics cards the size of surfboards, or are still bitter that Direct3D…

CES 2019: MSI’s ultra thin GS65 Stealth laptop gets an RTX refresh

MSI's RTX 2080-powered GS75 Stealth laptop may have been their big announcement for this year's CES, but personally I was much more taken with the next model down, the newly RTX-refreshed GS65 Stealth. Also packed with an RTX 2080 in its energy-efficient and laptop-friendly Max-Q design, MSI's calling this 15.6in laptop the most powerful ultra slim device of its respective size category, and it's a…

CES 2019: Razer’s Raptor monitor has incredible cable management

Razer announced they were finally jumping headfirst into the world of gaming monitors at this year's CES, and man alive does this 27in display get a lot of things right. Dubbed the Razer Raptor, this 2560x1440 IPS screen is still in the early stages of development at the moment, but even now there's plenty to admire here. Indeed, the thing I'm most excited about isn't…

Feature: A stealthy gaming laptop indeed... until you open the lid, that is

CES 2019: MSI’s GS75 Stealth is a super slim 17in laptop with an RTX 2080 crammed inside

Nvidia's RTX 2060 may have dominated most of the graphics card headlines at this year's CES, but down on the show floor you simply can't move for RTX gaming laptops. Chief among them is MSI's new GS75 Stealth, which has been shoved in my face at no fewer than three separate appointments I've been to in the last two days. This is mostly because it's…

The last thing I was expecting to come out of this year's CES was another virtual reality headset, but here you go. Announced earlier today (or last night for those of you in the UK), the Vive Cosmos is the latest headset from HTC, and it's been designed with top quality comfort and ease of use in mind. Here's everything we know so far.

CES 2019: Acer’s Predator Triton 900 is the maddest gaming laptop I’ve ever seen

When it comes to bonkers gaming laptops, you can always rely on Acer to go that extra mile and create something that's utterly bananas. For as long as I've been writing about tech (and gaming laptops in particular), this Taiwanese giant has been responsible for almost every surprise and baffling bit of innovation I've encountered over the years, and their latest Predator Triton 900 laptop…
