Feature: Slaying those frames

Wired2Fire’s Predator PC is primed and ready for 1440p gaming for just under £1300

At the end of last year, I put together our official RPS Rig, which included everything you needed to build a gaming PC for less than £1000, including your monitor, mouse and keyboard and all the extra peripherals that go with a modern PC. However, many of you asked what that rig would look like if it was just the PC that cost £1000 (you…

Best graphics card 2020: The best AMD and Nvidia GPUs for gaming

It's been a busy 12 months in the race to become to next best graphics card, and 2020 doesn't show any signs of it stopping, either. While we've had nearly all the best graphics cards we're likely to see from Nvidia this generation, AMD are just getting started, and will be releasing their hotly anticipated 1080p best graphics card contender, the RX 5600 XT, next…

AMD FreeSync 2 HDR is dead, long live FreeSync Premium and Premium Pro

On top of announcing their new Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card and a bunch of new 3rd Gen Ryzen 4000 laptop processors yesterday, AMD also announced some changes to their various FreeSync standards at this year's CES. Until now, we had regular FreeSync and FreeSync 2 HDR, the latter offering exactly the same variable refresh rate tech for super smooth, tear-free gaming as regular…

AMD want their Ryzen 4000 CPUs to be “the best laptop processors ever built”

AMD kicked off their CES 2020 press conference with some big promises last night. Not only are they calling their upcoming Radeon RX 5600 XT GPU the "ultimate 1080p graphics card", but they're also hoping their new set of 3rd Gen Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs will be "the best laptop processors ever built". Those are fighting words considering AMD have always been a bit of…

AMD’s Radeon RX 5600 XT takes aim at Nvidia’s GTX 1660 Ti

AMD announced the latest graphics cards in their new RX 5000 family last night, the RX 5600 and RX 5600 XT. Much like their RX 5500 and RX 5500 XT cousins, the regular RX 5600 will only be available in pre-configured systems you buy from PC builders. The RX 5600 XT, on the other hand, is going to be the one you buy separately to…

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…

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…

Black Friday and Cyber Monday graphics card deals: All the best Nvidia and AMD GPUs still on sale

If you missed out on one of last week's Black Friday graphics card deals, never fear, because Cyber Monday is finally here to continue your graphics card deals hunting needs. Admittedly, most of the Cyber Monday graphics card deals I've seen are either the same as the ones we had on Black Friday, or are only a fraction cheaper. Similarly, it's pretty slim pickings for…

AMD's best graphics card for 1080p gaming, the Radeon RX 590, is down to a bonkers £150 as part of Overclockers UK's Black Friday graphics card deals at the moment, making it a much better bargain than many of the current cheap Nvidia deals going on.

Oculus Link beta now lets you play Rift games on your Oculus Quest, but only if you’ve got an Nvidia GPU

The Oculus Quest just got a little bit better. Well, for some people at least. As of November 18, Oculus' Link software is now in beta, meaning Quest owners can now play PC-based Rift games using their portable headset. There are, however, some pretty big catches, like the fact you need an Nvidia-based gaming PC in order for it to work because it currently doesn't…

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: 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…

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…

AMD’s Radeon RX 5500 takes aim at Nvidia’s GTX 1650

After the rip-roaring launch of AMD's Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT, AMD are now turning their eyes toward the 1080p end of the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] pool with the imminent arrival of their brand-new RX 5500 card. Admittedly, I think we'll have to wait until the launch of the inevitable RX 5600 series before we have a proper GTX 1660 /…

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X review: Powerful, but expensive

It's been quite a while since AMD first launched their new Ryzen 3000 CPUs, but I've finally managed to get my hands on the last remaining member of their new gaming CPU family, the Ryzen 7 3800X. It's the even nippier big brother of the already excellent AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, but with the even more powerful Ryzen 9 3900X now sitting above it in…

How to get Gears 5 looking its smoothest, bestest best even on an ancient graphics card

Time to ready your chainsaws, folks, because Gears 5 is finally out on PC.
