Feature: A FreeSync 2 HDR monitor that can be enjoyed by all

AOC Agon AG273QX review: Finally, a perfect 1440p, HDR monitor

I love a great 1920x1080 gaming monitor as much as the next person, but personally, I've always been more of a 2560x1440 kinda gal. The problem is, my current best gaming monitor recommendation for 1440p is the increasingly scarce MSI Optix MPG27CQ, and I've been desperately trying to find a replacement for it all year. BenQ's EX3203R came close, but was let down by its…

Feature: The new benchmark for 1080p gaming on a budget

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT review: More Super than all of Nvidia’s budget cards combined

When AMD first announced their new budget graphics card, the Radeon RX 5500, back at the beginning of October, I was expecting review samples to follow swiftly after it. They did not. Turns out, the RX 5500 isn't actually a graphics card you can buy off the shelf. Instead, the only place you'll find them is inside a pre-built PC. Why? Who knows. Perhaps it's…

Feature: Slow and steady wins the race

WD Black P10 review: Can this portable HDD compete with a portable SSD?

We all know the drill by now. Hard disk drives (or HDDs) are slow but cheap. SSDs are fast but expensive. We can often justify the latter if we're getting a small, internal drive for installing things like Windows or a couple of games on, but once you're into the realms of 2TB and above in SSD land, you're going to need to start handing…

AMD’s Adrenalin 2020 update wants to be your new, all-in-one game launcher

It is a truth universally acknowledged that graphics card drivers are by far the worst part of owning a modern gaming PC. All those updates, all those log-in details we can never remember, it's a nightmare. AMD are looking to change all that for AMD graphics card owners, however, by turning the latest incarnation of their Adrenalin graphics driver software into a one-stop hub for…

Our best budget NVMe SSD is getting a new, faster 1TB model

When the WD Blue SN500 came out earlier in the year, it went straight into our best gaming SSD rankings thanks to its low price and nippy read and write speeds. The only thing it was really lacking was a nice, cheap 1TB model. Thankfully, WD are about to rectify that with the introduction of their new Blue SN550 SSD, which not only adds that…

WD Black SN750 Heatsink review: Do you need a heatsink on your next gaming SSD?

When WD first announced they were redesigning their top-tier Black NVMe SSD to look more gamer-friendly earlier in the year, I must admit that I rolled my eyes a bit. After all, what could you possibly do to an SSD the size of a chewing gum stick that would make it look tangibly different to any other chewing gum stick-sized SSD? Well, in the case…

Feature: But does it do enough to stand out from the crowd?

Speedlink’s Orios is a small mouse that plays a big RGB game

For a small, streamlined gaming mouse, the Speedlink Orios sure knows how to announce itself. Replete with RGBs around the side of the mouse, scroll wheel and rear logo, this rainbow infused clicker is almost as much a sight for the eyes as the holey Glorious Model O-. Indeed, with its slender frame and weight of 95g, the Speedlink Orios definitely leans more toward that…

Samsung’s T5 SSD is already cheaper than it was over Black Friday

From now until December 25th in the UK, you can claim £90 cashback on the 2TB model of the T5, taking its usual price of £270 down to just £180 - which is a heck of…

Feature: Looking sharp

Corsair’s Glaive RGB Pro mouse chops the Nightsword in two, but fails to match the mighty Ironclaw

Of the fourteen gaming mice that have swished across my desk this year, six of them have been made by Corsair. With the Glaive RGB Pro, that number rises to seven - which is, frankly, a ridiculous number of mice to release within the space of twelve months, and way more variations on a theme than is perhaps strictly necessary. Some have been great -…

AOC’s 24G2U is another best budget gaming monitor champion

AOC's C24G1 is an excellent gaming monitor for those on a budget, but for those of you who prefer flat screens as opposed to curved ones, then the AOC 24G2U is definitely the monitor for you. This 24in, 1920x1080, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync screen shares many of the same specs as the C24G1, but comes with a flat, even more accurate IPS panel instead of a…
