Feature: But the XG32VQR is a great 1440p gaming monitor regardless

Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR review: HDR is still a pain in the ass

As 2560x1440 gaming monitors go, the 32in Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR is probably one of the better screens you can buy today. I'd even go as far as saying it's potential best gaming monitor material if ever suddenly became a lot cheaper than our current 1440p recommendation, the MSI Optix MPG27CQ, but even at its current price of £489 / $550, the XG32VQR is is…

Feature: It'll cost you, though

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,…

Feature: Should you spend more on an overclocked GPU?

RTX 2070 Super benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs Zotac vs Asus

Nvidia's RTX 2070 Super is a great graphics card if you're after smooth, 1440p performance, but when you stack up the £475 / $499 Nvidia Founders Edition card I reviewed against AMD's new Radeon RX 5700 XT, it starts to struggle at bit on the old value for money front - just have a look at my big RTX 2070 Super vs RX 5700 XT…

Asus ROG Zephyrus G GA502 review: A slim 1080p gaming laptop for just over a grand

When AMD said they were going to get serious about sticking more of their 3rd Gen Ryzen 3000 H mobile CPU chips into proper gaming laptops this year, they really weren't kidding. Take the Asus ROG Zephyrus G, the ever so slightly fatter cousin of the ultra slim Asus ROG Zephyrus S I reviewed earlier in the year. It's not an outright AMD machine -…

Best gaming monitor 2019: Top 1080p, 1440p and 4K HDR displays

It's tempting to cut corners when buying a new gaming monitor, especially if you've already spent hundreds of pounds or dollars upgrading your PC or shelling out for one of today's [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"]s. But your monitor is arguably one of the most important parts of your entire setup. After all, there's no point buying a fancy graphics card when your gaming display…

Feature: The key question

Best gaming keyboard 2019: Top mechanical and membrane picks

Trying to find the best gaming keyboard is an exercise often fraught with questions. Not only have you got to decide whether you want to get a membrane gaming keyboard or a mechanical gaming keyboard, but if you end up going down the mechanical route, you've then got to pick what kind of mechanical switch you want, too, which can affect everything from the speed…

Feature: Tough love

Asus TUF Gaming M5 review: Small but mighty?

I was a big fan of Asus' TUF Gaming K5 mech-brane keyboard when I looked at it last month, so today I thought I'd turn my attention to its equally TUF mouse companion, the Asus TUF Gaming M5, and see if it's [block id="604479" title="Best gaming mouse"] material. See what they did there? Coated in the same durable TUF stuff that makes it more resistant…

Feature: A tough act to beat

Asus TUF Gaming K5 review: All hail the mech-brane

You've heard of membrane keyboards. You've heard of mechanical keyboards. You've probably even heard some keyboards described as 'membranical', which (aside from being a crime against the English language) are the kind of hybrid gaming keyboards you might consider buying if you're unsure whether to go full CLACK with a proper mechanical one. The Asus TUF Gaming K5 falls into this latter category, although Asus…

Feature: ...with a not so super slim price

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX531 review: A super slim Nvidia RTX gaming laptop

If you've ever had to lug your laptop around all day, you'll know the importance of having one that's thin, light and doesn't kill your shoulders after spending eight to ten hours in a backpack. I certainly do, and let me tell you, hauling around anything over 2kg for 8-10 hours everyday is absolute murder on the old spine. At 2.1kg, the Asus ROG Zephyrus…

Asus ROG Strix Scar II review: RTX on the go

Nvidia's first crop of RTX gaming laptops are finally here and the first one to slide across my desk is Asus' ROG Strix Scar II GL504GW. Packed with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM and one of Nvidia's new RTX 2070 chips, this 15.6in laptop is primed and ready to take full advantage of its 1920x1080 resolution display and 144Hz refresh rate, but…

Feature: The BFG of gaming monitors

Nvidia BFGD: Everything we know about their Big Format Gaming Displays, including price, specs and release date

Nvidia's BFGDs (or Big Format Gaming Displays, to you and me) are no longer going to be called BFGDs. Instead, as of January 2019, these massive 65in gaming displays are now part of Nvidia's wider G-Sync Ultimate family, which also includes their significantly smaller (but just as pricey) G-Sync HDR monitors such as the 27in Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ. Why the…

CES 2019: I take it back, the Asus ROG Mothership is the maddest gaming laptop I’ve ever seen

The Asus ROG Mothership is a preposterous piece of technology. I know I said earlier in the week that the Acer Predator Triton 900 was the maddest gaming laptop I've ever seen, but this desktop replacement really takes the biscuit. Not only does this huge great thing need a kickstand to prop up its 4.7kg chassis, but its keyboard can also be folded in half…

Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ review: 4K HDR has arrived, but good grief, HOW MUCH?

When I saw the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ for the first time back in May earlier this year, I thought the future of monitors had finally arrived. After more than a year of waiting, false starts and simply not being able to have as much fun as our console box friends with their fancy pants 4K HDR TVs, both the PG27UQ and the Acer Predator…

Asus ROG Strix GL12CX review: The Core i9, RTX 2080 monster PC

It's not often I have particularly strong feelings about PC cases, but man alive there's a lot going on with Asus' new ROG Strix GL12CX desktop. You've got your swishes, your slashes, your grilles and your grates, matt versus gloss versus RGB lighting, and even a full-blown chasm thanks to its hot-swap SSD bay. It's a lot to take in, but provided you can get…

Feature: One TUF customer

Asus’ new TUF Gaming FX705 might have solved the great gaming laptop display problem

Until recently, Asus' TUF brand was reserved for its heavy-duty, military grade motherboards. Now, however, Asus have repurposed TUF for a new line of entry-level gaming doodads - not quite as swanky as its classic ROG series, but tougher and better built than your typical budget fare. To that end, Asus have announced a new pair of TUF Gaming laptops today, the 15.6in FX505 and…
