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

Just when you thought things had finally calmed down in the world of best graphics cards, Nvidia goes and releases another one in the form of the GTX 1660. The baby sibling of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, its low price of £200 and its fast speeds mean it's now my new top recommendation for those after the best graphics card for 1080p gaming…

Feature: The price is so, so right

PC Specialist Apollo R1 review: A GTX 1660 gaming PC for just £700

There's no denying the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is a great graphics card for £200 / $220. Offering 60fps speeds at High or maximum settings at 1080p, and Medium to High at 1440p, it's effectively replaced the 6GB GTX 1060 as my new best graphics card of choice for budget-conscious buyers. In terms of overall value, however, it faces stiff competition from the equally nippy…

Grab an AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 for just £250

Add in free copies of Devil May Cry 5, The Division 2 and Resident Evil…

Feature: Our exodus into the graphics performance apocalypse

Metro Exodus PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

Once upon a time, there was an old saying in PC gaming spheres: 'But will it run Crysis?' Then the apocalypse happened, and civilisation retreated to the dark tunnels of its underground tube system, the phrase becoming lost and morphed in the intervening years. Now we say in hushed, hallowed tones, 'But will it run Metro?' The toughest of tough guys on PC these days,…

Far Cry New Dawn PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

It doesn't seem like five minutes since we were last in Hope County, punching bears in the face and losing our minds to bliss-fuelled nightmare cults, but here we are again with Far Cry New Dawn, where hot pink is the new post-apocalyptic beige. Its predecessor, Far Cry 5, wasn't too much of a faff to get running on PC, but a lot's changed since…

Radeon VII vs RTX 2080 Ti: Clash of the top-end graphics cards

With no sign of AMD's next generation of Navi GPUs in sight, their newly-released Radeon 7 is currently their toppest of top-end graphics cards available today. But how does it stack up against Nvidia's toppest of top-end graphics cards, the RTX 2080 Ti? That's what we're here to find out - and I've even done my graph colours the right way round this time, which…

Radeon VII vs RTX 2080: AMD and Nvidia go head to head

AMD's Radeon 7 (or Radeon VII to give it its proper, official styling) is finally here. Not only is it the world's first 7nm gaming card, but it's also the first consumer GPU to come stacked with a whopping 16GB of memory - that's double what AMD stuck on their previous top-end card, the Radeon RX Vega 64, and 5GB more than what you'll find…

AMD Radeon 7 review: So close to the RTX 2080 and yet so far

With the next generation of Nvidia RTX cards almost fully established, AMD's Radeon 7 has a lot to prove. It's neither one of AMD's own next-gen Navi GPUs, nor does it have any special reflection/performance boosting tech hidden away inside its second gen Vega architecture. There are improvements to be found over AMD's existing Vega 56 and Vega 64 cards, sure, but I think you'll…

Even if AMD’s Radeon 7 isn’t that great, at least it will make a great doorstop

I'll be bringing you my full review on the 7th to see how that claim holds up in practice, but in the mean time, I thought…

HDR on PC continues to be a bit of a mess these days, but provided you haven't been put off by the astronomical prices of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR or, indeed, the ongoing debacle surrounding Windows 10 support for it, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get an HDR compatible graphics card.

AMD’s Adrenalin 2019 Edition update brings performance boosts, in-home streaming and one-click overclocking

Let's face it, news about graphics card software updates is infinitely less sexy than news about proper, new graphics cards, but AMD's latest Adrenalin 2019 Edition package has a string of neat-ish features that current AMD GPU owners may want to take note of, such as free, in-home streaming to your phone or tablet, an easier to parse set of menu options and even more…

A 4GB GTX 1050Ti for $130, you say? This $150 RX 570 is arguably a much better deal

It's finally here, the big day itself, Black Friday. Hooray! And to kick off proceedings, I've just found a brand-new 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics card deal for you.
