AMD finally add the RX 5600 XT to their free game bundle

When AMD announced their latest Raise the Game bundle last week, which gets you two free games when you buy selected Radeon RX 5000 series graphics cards, their latest and greatest RX 5600 XT GPU was mysteriously absent. Perhaps it was a deliberate snub, perhaps it was an honest mistake. Whatever the reason, our [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] champion has now been restored to…

Feature: And which graphics card should you buy?

AMD RX 5600 XT vs RX 5700: Which is faster?

When AMD said they were creating the ultimate 1080p graphics card with their new RX 5600 XT, they really weren't kidding. Not only is it faster than the similarly priced Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, but its performance even matches that of Nvidia's slightly more expensive RTX 2060. No wonder, then, that it's gone straight into our [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] list for 2020.…

There have been a lot of new entries in our best graphics card list over the last year or so, and 2020 is looking like it's going to be just as disruptive.

It's never a surprise when a graphics card maker announces, 'Hey, there are going to be new graphics cards this year!' but we could be seeing a lot more GPUs from AMD in 2020 than we first thought. Announced during their latest financial Q&A with investors, AMD's head lady Dr. Lisa Su confirmed that not only will we be getting refreshes of their existing Navi…

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT review: Just as fast as Nvidia’s RTX 2060

It's been a bit of a whirlwind week leading up today's launch of AMD's Radeon RX 5600 XT. Dubbed the "ultimate" bestest [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] for 1080p gaming, the RX 5600 XT was originally meant to be AMD's answer to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, coming in at an identical price of $279. Nvidia, however, fought back, lowering the price of their next…

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…

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.

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…

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.
