In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it-style war for the best Black Friday deal on AMD's Radeon RX 580 graphics card, Powercolor have emerged with an even better bargain than yesterday's Sapphire one (the latter of which has now annoyingly returned to its original price of £220).

If you fancy grabbing free…

AMD Radeon RX 590 review: A GTX 1060 killer?

Well, this is a surprise, isn't it? After all the hoo-hah of Nvidia's new and shiny Turing RTX graphics cards, AMD have gone and snuck in another mid-ranger right under our noses in the form of the Radeon RX 590. Alas, it's still not one of the long-awaited AMD Navi GPUs everyone's been whispering about - it's fundamentally a Polaris card just like the rest…

AOC Agon AG322QC4 review: An excellent FreeSync 2 HDR monitor, brightness be damned

HDR on PC (or high dynamic range) is all well and good when it actually works, but let's face it, no one wants to shell out north of £2000 / $2000 on one of Nvidia's fancy G-Sync HDR monitors like the Acer Predator X27 or Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ when it's still so damn fiddly to get right. Admittedly, things aren't any simpler over on…

AMD Athlon 200GE review: The perfect Vega CPU for Fortnite and indie games alike

When AMD launched their Vega-infused Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G processors earlier in the year, I was left mighty impressed. Here were two relatively cheap CPUs that could sort of play games at decent enough settings at 1920x1080 via their integrated graphics chips without forcing you to spend hundreds of pounds / dollars on a dedicated GPU - a feat made all the…

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…
