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…

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…

Best graphics card 2019: Top AMD and Nvidia GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

Just when you thought it was safe, the race for best graphics card is starting to heat up again. At least when it comes to best budget graphics cards, anyway. Not only do we have the launch of AMD's Radeon RX 5500 to look forward to, but there are lots of rumours doing the rounds that Nvidia are also prepping their GTX 1660 Super to…

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. As you may remember from my Gears 5 Tech Test performance piece a couple of months ago, developers The Coalition seem to have done an excellent job keeping their latest cover shooter all slick and spangly this time round, as even ageing graphics cards such as Nvidia's GTX 970 and AMD's…

Control PC performance: How to get the best settings

Like Alan Wake before it, Control is one tough customer when it comes to getting smooth PC performance. As you may have already seen in my dedicated Control RTX ray tracing guide, even some of today's [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"]s struggle to run this eerie behemoth of a game at higher resolutions, so I thought it was high time to have a look at…

Feature: It's also crazy expensive

Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master review: Loads of features, but only middling performance

At £390 / $360, Gigabyte's X570 Aorus Master motherboard is currently one of the most expensive X570 boards you can currently buy for AMD's latest crop of Ryzen 3000 CPUs. Sure, you get a number of handy extras, such as three PCIe 4.0 M.2 connections (plus accompanying heatsinks) for your SSDs and three PCIe 4.0 x16 slots for your graphics card and other expansion cards,…

MSI X570 Gaming Edge review: Great performance without breaking the bank

If you're thinking about buying one of AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPUs, such as the excellent Ryzen 7 3700X, then you may want to think about pairing it with one of their new X570 motherboards. AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPUs still work with older AM4 motherboards, of course, including those with X470 or B450 chipsets, but they may need a BIOS update before you can start using…

Feature: Not a good fit for heatsink-equipped SSDs

AsRock X570 Taichi review: Flawed design

On paper, the AsRock X570 Taichi sounds like a well-equipped X570 motherboard. All three of its PCIe x16 slots support the new, super fast PCIe 4.0 standard, as do its trio of M.2 NVMe SSD ports. It also comes with its own screwdriver for easy assembly in the box, as well as multiple M.2 screws and standoffs, an SLI HB bridge and four SATA cables.…

Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero review: The X570 king of USB ports

The Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero has probably more USB ports than you'll ever need, but if you're thinking of building a new PC with one of AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPUs in it and have a bunch of peripherals you want to plug into it, then this one is almost certainly going to fit the bill. It's going to be a pretty big bill, mind,…
