Best graphics card deals of the week – 3rd April 2020

As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, the window to nab yourself one of today's best graphics card deals is slowly closing. Indeed, prices have shot up in the UK in response to falling stock levels, which means many Nvidia graphics card deals aren't really very good deals any more. There are still loads of great AMD graphics card deals going on though, and you'll find…

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord performance – how to get the best settings

Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord has finally charged into early access, albeit with quite a number of technical issues in tow if Sin's early experience is anything to go by. I've yet to become mired in the same loading time issues and mission crashes as she has, so I'm afraid I can't offer any quick fixes for those unfortunately, but what I can talk about…

Half-Life: Alyx VR performance: How to get the best settings and the smoothest experience

Half-Life: Alyx has finally arrived, marking Valve's big return to their most famous game series as well as their first foray into the realms of VR. You can read more about wot Graham thinks of the game itself in his Half-Life: Alyx review, but here I thought I'd focus on Half-Life: Alyx's VR performance chops, and in particular what kind of experience you can expect…

What the heck is DirectX 12 Ultimate and what does it mean for PC gaming?

Microsoft announced a new version of DirectX 12 yesterday, which is the bit of tech that allows games and other types of software to work with your PC's audio and video hardware. Dubbed DirectX 12 Ultimate, Microsoft are calling it "the best graphics technology [they've] ever introduced" and have declared it "future-proof" for next generation games thanks to its built-in support for ray tracing, variable…

Doom Eternal PC performance: How to get the best settings

Doom Eternal has finally ripped and torn its way onto PC, and to help make sure your rig doesn't explode into its own fiery hellscape, I've been putting the game through its paces to find out how to get the best performance from id Software's fast and furious shooter, and how to get the best settings if you find your graphics card's getting hot under…

What Sony’s PS5 specs tell us about AMD’s Big Navi cards

As big hardware spec reveals go, yesterday's PS5 specs deep-dive was pretty darn dry. Sony's Mark Cerny spent at least 50% of the 50-odd minute presentation talking about the console's SSD, and we still don't have any idea what the thing actually looks like. It was just abstract graph after abstract graph, a bit like the one up the top there, which I think is…

The AMD ‘Big Navi’ GPU inside the Xbox Series X offers RTX 2080 levels of power

We've known for some time now that both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be powered by the next generation of AMD Navi GPUs, but thanks to our friends at Digital Foundry who have just revealed the full spec of Microsoft's Xbox Series X console, we now have a much better idea of just how powerful they're going to be and what that…

AMD Navi: Everything we know so far about “Big Navi”, from ray tracing to release date

AMD's Navi GPUs have been making quite the splash since they first came out last July. The RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT quickly established themselves as worthy rivals to Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 graphics cards, and their entry-level RX 5500 XT and RX 5600 XT cards are currently my top best graphics card recommendations for those after something a bit cheaper.…

Best graphics card 2020: The best AMD and Nvidia GPUs for gaming

After the flurry of new GPU releases from AMD and Nvidia last year, our best graphics card list finally seems to have quietened down a bit - at least for now, anyway. We've already seen a bunch of new AMD Navi GPUs come out over the last 12 months, for example, and all we're really waiting for is their 'Big Navi' 4K GPUs. It's a…

Get a £15 Steam voucher when you buy an AMD RX 5500 XT from MSI

AMD's Radeon RX 5500 XT is one of the best graphics cards for 1080p gaming right now, but if you buy one from MSI right now, then you get another tasty treat alongside it: a £15 Steam voucher to be precise, and that's on top of the two free games that come with the card as part of AMD's current Raise the Game bundle. Don't…

The Division 2 PC performance: Get your PC Warlords of New York ready

The Division 2 is heading back to the flaming bin-lined streets of the Big Apple this week with the launch of its brand-new expansion, Warlords of New York. Swapping the sunny sights of Washington DC for the now equally sweltering-looking streets of lower Manhattan, The Division 2: Warlords of New York is a great excuse to jump back into Ubisoft's giant open world looter shooter…

Updated: Nvidia unveil Cyberpunk 2077 graphics card, and now we need new cybernetic eyes

Update: And here it is in all its mildly heinous yellow glory! As you can probably see from the front of Nvidia's new Cyberpunk-ified GPU (provided its intense yellow hasn't blinded you), this is just a special edition of their regular RTX 2080 Ti graphics card rather than a whole new launch or RTX Super reveal. The good news, though, is that it won't cost…

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 best graphics card champion has now been restored to its rightful…

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 best graphics card list for 2020. But I'm…

This time, we're looking at free copies of Monster Hunter: World's Iceborne Master Edition, Resident Evil 3, Warcraft III: Reforged, Ghost Recon Breakpoint and three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC, but some GPUs will…

AMD confirm loads more graphics cards for 2020

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…

Feature: But can its cheaper price make up for no ray tracing support?

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 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 card up,…

Actually, this is our first proper glimpse at Intel’s Xe GPU, but details are still thin on the ground

Earlier this week, we got our first glimpse of Intel's Xe GPU in action when they showed a live demo of it running Destiny 2 on one of their new Tiger Lake laptops during their CES press conference. At the time, the GPU code-named DG1 was buried deep inside the laptop, but now Intel have released some official images of the desktop version of their…
