Nvidia are planning more ray traced remasters of classic PC games like Quake II RTX

Whatever your feelings are on Quake II RTX, it looks like it won't be the only classic PC game getting Nvidia's fancy pants ray tracing treatment. A recently posted job ad for Nvidia's Lightspeed Studios has revealed a new "game remastering program" that aims to bring "some of the greatest titles from the past decades [...] into the ray tracing age". There's no word yet…

Red Dead 2 on PC has even lovelier horses for strapping alligators to

Shortly after revealing Red Dead Redemption 2's PC requirements last night, Rockstar went into more detail about the specific PC enhancements that will be yee-hawing their way into the game come November 5th. HDR, "faster frame rates" and support for 4K resolutions and beyond were arguably the biggest headlines from Rockstar's announcement post (still no word on ray tracing, sadly), but let's face it, all…

Red Dead 2’s PC requirements are gonna put a bullet in your SSD

Rockstar have quietly added the PC requirements for Red Dead Redemption 2 to the game's Rockstar Launcher page. The good news? It's not going to murder your PC. The bad news? It will absolutely gobble up your PC's storage banks, as it's currently recommending you keep at least 150GB set aside for it. I know it's a big game and all, but that's another 50GB…

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 /…

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is finally out in the wild, but if your PC is struggling to get the game running, then this Ghost Recon Breakpoint PC performance guide is here to help.

Borderlands 3 performance: How to get the best settings

Borderlands 3 may have been 2K's fastest selling game in the history of forever, but it sure hasn't been very quick about fixing its various performance problems over on PC. While last week's hotfix patch squashed a couple of performance-related issues, a proper solution for getting rid of things like stuttering and its DX12 load time problems has yet to materialise. Still, while we're waiting…

Feature: A billion is a big number

7 graphics cards that are almost definitely Borderlands 3 weapons

If you've been playing Borderlands 3 over the past couple of weeks, you'll no doubt have come across hundreds, if not thousands, of its supposed billion different gun types. Indeed, so far I've seen shotguns that can fire tiny little turrets on legs, rifles that turn into bouncy grenades once I've emptied the magazine, and sniper rifles whose bullets magically boomerang back into my ammo…

Nvidia’s new RTX bundle now comes with a free copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

As you may…

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

Things seem to have finally quietened down in the world of best graphics cards. After a flurry of new gaming GPU releases earlier this summer in the form of Nvidia's trio of RTX Super cards and AMD's two new Radeon RX 5700 Navi GPUs, it's all settled down again. At least for the time being, anyway. There will no doubt be more [block id="682017" title="AMD…

Nvidia are apparently prepping a GTX 1660 Super, and I’m completely baffled by it

The graphics card rumour mill never ceases to amaze me. Despite no hard evidence whatsoever, the latest thing being whispered around the internet is that Nvidia are apparently getting ready to launch two new GTX 16-series graphics cards - the GTX 1660 Super and the GTX 1650 Ti. Indeed, after first spotting the story on Chinese news site MyDrivers, even renowned leakers VideoCardz have admitted…

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…

Want a taste of what 'next-gen' graphics are going to look like? Well, the clever folks over at Square Enix's Luminous Productions studio (the wizards wot made Final Fantasy XV) have just released a brand new tech demo called 'Back Stage' doing just that. Made in collaboration with Nvidia, this real-time ray tracing demo isn't related to any particular game per se (or at least…

Control is getting more graphics options, including motion blur

If your PC's been struggling to run Remedy's new telekinetic shooter Control this past week, you may have been desperately searching for a way to turn off its rather strong motion blur effect. Alas, no such option exists right now, but the good news is that it will do very soon as part of Control's next big update.

I have complicated feelings about Final Fantasy VIII Remastered

Whenever someone asks me what my favourite Final Fantasy game is, the answer is always Final Fantasy VIII. It's getting on a bit (20 years, in fact) but its tale of time-travelling witches, lovestruck teens, cannonball dogs and bonkers floating military schools is still, for me, one of the best things to come out of this never-ending series. It is, however, one of the more…

Control RTX: A guide to ray tracing and what you need to get the best performance

Remedy's eerie telekinetic shooter Control is without a doubt one of the biggest RTX ray tracing games you can play on PC right now. It's also one of the most demanding. Indeed, while Remedy recently revised their Control PC requirements, saying you now only need an Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card for playing with ray tracing switched on as opposed to the crazy expensive RTX…

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint’s PC requirements start getting Ultra hefty at 1080p

The PC requirements for Ubisoft's next big military shooty game Ghost Recon: Breakpoint were announced earlier today, detailing lots of nice PC-specific things like ultrawide and multi-monitor support, uncapped 4K frame rates, as well as support for Tobii eye-tracking and AMD's new sharpening FidelityFX tech. However, those looking forward to gazing longingly at the carefully coiffed hairs of Jon Bernthal's chinny chin chin may find…

Nvidia’s new Gamescom driver promises better performance and prettier pixels

Not content with tracing all the rays in Minecraft and lots of other big games like Call of Duty and Watch Dogs Legion this week, Nvidia also released a new GeForce Game Ready driver yesterday that promises up to 23% better performance in some of today's big multiplayer games, plus sharper pixels in retro games (see FTL: Faster Than Light running in 4K up the…
