MSI Clutch GM60 review: A flexible gaming mouse that ultimately falls a bit flat

As £70 / $69 gaming mice go, the MSI Clutch GM60 is arguably one of the most adaptable mice I've seen in a while. It's ambidextrous for starters, making it a good pick for right and left-handed PC peeps alike, but you also get not one, but two pairs of magnetic side covers, an extra USB cable (one braided, one rubber) and an additional top…

Whirlwind FX Vortx review: A blow-by-blow account of this PC wind machine

When I was a child, 4D cinemas were all the rage. You know the ones, with the seat-rumbling and the spurts of air in your face when something explodes onscreen and the spaceship you and 40 other people are meant to be piloting starts crash-landing into the moon. Well, Whirlwind FX have come up with the PC equivalent of 4D cinema that you can stick…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 12th October 2018

What's this? A new weekly deals master? Or should that be mistress? Sounds a bit wrong if you ask me. Let's stick with weekly deals... herald. Yes, I like the sound of being a herald. Does that mean I get my own hilariously long trumpet like the ones you get in medieval processions? I hope so. Then I can stick it out of the RPS…

Best gaming mouse 2018: Top wired and wireless mice

For years I never gave much thought to the kind of mouse I had on my desk, but I've since realised that having a few extra buttons and a greater variety of sensitivity speeds can not only make games feel a lot more responsive, but also more fun - which is why I've gathered up all the best gaming mice I've tested over the last…

Overclockers Kinetic Z1 review: 1080p gaming for just £600

If the thought of building your own PC fills you with dread, then buying one pre-built can save you a lot of time and hassle. You don't even have to spend that much to get a good one, either, as this £600 Kinetic Z1 from UK system builder Overclockers UK is perfectly tuned for 1080p gaming straight out of the box. I've got the basic…

Black Friday 2018: How to get the best PC gaming deals on graphics cards, monitors, SSDs and more

If you've been thinking about building a new gaming PC recently, chances are you've probably put it off due to ongoing price hikes, stock shortages or simply not knowing which bits you should actually buy - which is why this year's Black Friday shopping bonanza might finally be the time to jump in and bag yourself a sack load of deals.

Feature: The crucial next step for your PC?

Crucial BX500 review: A great value SSD

Crucial's SSD line-up is in a bit of a funny place right now. As you may well have seen from our Best gaming SSD rankings, their mid-tier MX500 SSD is currently cheaper than their entry-level BX300 SSD in practically all size categories above 120GB, and their latest BX500 SSD on test today only muddies the waters further. You would think, given its name, that the…

Intel launch 9th Gen processors ahead of possible CPU shortage

Intel lifted the lid on their 9th Gen desktop processors this afternoon, giving us a glimpse of what's coming next after their current crop of 8th Gen Coffee Lake chips. Leading the pack is their flagship Intel Core i9-9900K, an 8-core, 16-thread CPU that can Turbo Boost all the way up to 5.0GHz. However, the news comes little over a week after Intel's CFO and…

Acer Predator X27 review: The Nvidia G-Sync HDR monitor that only lets you see half the fun

On paper, the Acer Predator X27 should be the bestest best gaming monitor to end all gaming monitors. It's got the same lovely 4K 144Hz IPS Nvidia G-Sync HDR panel with 384 dynamic backlight zones and 1000cd/m2 peak brightness as the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ, but in the UK it costs £200 less than its Asus rival. That might not be of much consolation to…

Jack your feet in with Cybershoes

Imagine stepping into cyberspace in meatshoes. The horror. All the cybermen will point at those useless nonvirtual feet flapping all jigglephysicsed at the end of your legs and laugh. The cyberbouncer won't even let you jack in: no shirt, no cybershoes; no net service. Cyberpals, rest easy. You can now blast your bytecoins at Cybershoes, a new controller for VR games which strap onto your…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

When it comes to graphics performance, Assassin's Creed has always been a tough nut to crack on PC. Assassin's Creed Oranges was an absolute beast to get running smoothly when it came out last year, and it continues to be one of the most demanding games in my graphic cards benchmarking suite. This year's Ancient Greece-themed installment, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, is, thankfully, a little less…

Logitech G502 Hero review: Faster, stronger, but it is better?

As you might have guessed from the name, the Logitech G502 Hero is a slightly fancier version of Logitech's classic £50 / $50 G502 gaming mouse. For an extra £30 / $30, you can bag yourself a 16000 DPI sensor as opposed to a 12000 one, left and right clickers with a 50 million click endurance rating rather than 20 million, and an additional two…

Windows 10 October update finally adds ray-tracing support for Nvidia’s RTX Turing cards

If you've turned on your Windows 10 PC today, you've probably been hassled at least three times by now that it's time for another big old update - specifically, the Windows 10 October update. This time, however, it's actually got a bunch of neat gaming goodies in store, especially if you're one of the three people who have already bought one of Nvidia's GeForce RTX…

Nvidia’s RTX 2080 fails to make a dent on Steam’s September hardware charts

Valve released a fresh batch of Steam hardware stats last night, detailing the most popular components used by participating survey filler-inners. Surprise, surprise, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti are nowhere to be seen on its graphics card list. Instead, PC peeps seem to be doubling down on cards at the other end of the price spectrum, with the GTX 1060, GTX 1050Ti and…

Forza Horizon 4 graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

If there was ever a game series that had a Jekyll and Hyde-type relationship, it would definitely be Forza.

Roccat Suora review: An excellent budget mechanical keyboard

Why are the best gaming keyboards always so expensive? If you want a decent mechanical keyboard, you're often looking at spending at least £100 / $100, if not significantly more if you want all those fancy RGB lighting effects to play with. It's with a great sigh of relief, then, that I've got Roccat's Suora on my desk today, which can be had for as…

Best graphics card 2018: Top GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

Autumn is always a trying time for today's best graphics cards. 'Tis the season for big games with even bigger graphics budgets, and what was once a mighty card for 60fps at one resolution can suddenly start to feel a bit creaky and long in the tooth - especially now most of Nvidia's new Turing RTX cards have arrived on scene, which, for the most…

Oculus Quest will cut the cords but keep the hand-tracking when it arrives next year

Oculus announced a brand new set of wireless VR goggles last night, this time in the form of the Oculus Quest. Before you start thinking, 'Hang on a sec, this is just another one of those Oculus Go mobile-type gubbins, isn't it?', bear with me. For unlike the Oculus Go, the Oculus Quest offers the same hand-tracking Touch controllers you get with the Oculus Rift…

Nvidia RTX 2080Ti vs GTX 1080Ti: Clash of the 4K graphics cards

Last week, after much hype and excitement, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card was finally unleashed on the world. Today, it's the turn of its beefed-up big brother, the RTX 2080Ti, whose release was delayed by a week for reasons lost to the bowels of Nvidia's marketing department. As you can see from my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review, this is hands down the best…
