Here’s a list of every game that’s going to look amazing on the Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080Ti

Good gravy, don't Nvidia's Turing RTX 2080 cards look nice, eh? Yes, they're just a teensy bit hideously expensive, but make no mistake. All three cards announced this evening, from the RTX 2070 right up to the RTX 2080Ti, have all been described to me as 4K, 60fps+ pixel pushers that are almost certainly going to be massive overkill for anyone still playing games at…

Nvidia Turing RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti: The next generation of graphics cards has arrived

It's been a long time coming, but Nvidia have finally lifted the lid on their next generation of Turing GeForce graphics cards - and man alive are they mindbogglingly impressive. Announced this evening at their GeForce Gaming Celebration event in Cologne ahead of this year's Gamescom, the successors to Nvidia's GTX 10-series will be led by the mighty GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX…

Will we finally see Nvidia's GeForce Turing graphics cards, or will everything centre on Nvidia's BFGDs / Big Format Gaming Displays?

Feature: A console you really need to fork out for, too

MSI Trident 3 8th review: The PC that thinks it’s a console

The MSI Trident 3 8th is probably the most console-like mini PC I've ever laid eyes on. Measuring 346x323x72mm, it's roughly the same size as an original Xbox One, and can be laid down on its side if you don't fancy standing it vertically with its accompanying base. That's pretty handy if you're after a PC that can sit neatly inside a TV stand, although…

Nvidia’s first Turing GPUs will be professional Quadro RTX cards

Well, would you look at that? Nvidia have just lifted the lid on their brand-new Turing graphics cards - and ghee whiz do they look powerful. Don't get too excited just yet, though, as the only cards Nvidia announced last night at computer graphics and animation conference Siggraph are (yep, you guessed it) all professional Quadro RTX models: the Quadro RTX 8000, Quadro RTX 6000…

Zotac ZBox Magnus mini PC review: A GTX 1070 powerhouse

Learning how to build a PC from scratch is all well and good, but having someone make one for you - or at least make most of one for you - can sometimes be a heck of a lot easier, especially if you're after something altogether more petite to maybe sit beneath your telly or perch neatly on top of your desk without having a…

Monster Hunter: World graphics performance: Carving up today’s best GPUs

Dragon coat-making sim Monster Hunter: World is finally here, and man alive is it a beastly PC port. Things were looking a bit dicey when I first got my hands on the game a couple of weeks ago, with GPU performance hitches aplenty even on some of today's best graphics cards, as well as strained CPU problems and frequent crashes. Thankfully, all those kinks have…

Get three free games when you buy a new AMD graphics card

Good news, potential graphics card buyers. Now that the world's supply of affordable GPUs have been ripped back from the cold, dead hands of the global crypto-mining community, AMD have announced they're going to start bundling in some free games with new graphics card purchases again - specifically, upcoming Greek stab'em up Assassin's Creed Odyssey, mythological co-op shooter Strange Brigade, and space action RPG Star…

Monster Hunter: World’s crashing problem is now fixed (& Nvidia drivers give tiny speed boost)

Good news, hunters! The crashing problem that was plaguing Monster Hunter: World's early review build looks as though it's now been completely fixed. There was a small 132MB update waiting for me on Steam this morning, and over the course of the next four hours it didn't crash on me even once. Hooray! We already know MHW puts quite a strain on both your graphics…

Best graphics card 2018: Top GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

The great graphics card drought is finally over. At long last, prices have returned to normal (all right, semi-normal) levels, and shops - shock horror - have finally wrestled their stock back from those pesky cryptocurrency miners, making now a great time to pick up one of today's best graphics cards and give your PC a long overdue update. To that end, we've rounded up…

Nvidia are definitely up to something at Gamescom

Nvidia have confirmed that something is definitely going down at this year's Gamescom. We don't know what yet - it could finally be the proper reveal of the company's next-gen Nvidia Turing graphics cards, for instance, or maybe a deep dive into their upcoming Nvidia BFGD (Big Format Gaming Displays), or something else entirely. We just don't know. What we do know, though, is that…

Capcom weigh in on Monster Hunter: World performance woes

First impressions on Monster Hunter: World's PC performance haven't been stellar, to say the least. Not only are today's best graphics cards struggling to hit 60fps at 1920x1080 on max graphics settings, but - as our own band of RPS hunters have found out over the weekend - it's also subject to crashing. A lot. Some of these problems will hopefully be fixed with Day…

Monster Hunter: World can go beyond 60fps, but you’re going to need a monstrous PC to do it

Greetings, hunters! Dinosaur hat-making sim Monster Hunter: World is coming out on PC very soon (August 9, to be precise), and I've been doing some early tinkering with its various graphics settings. The good news first: if you were worried about the game being capped at 30fps like the console versions, you'll be pleased to hear MHW has an uncapped frame rate option in its…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC is a bit of a mess, but provided you haven't been put off by Windows 10's hazy support for it or the astronomical prices of the best gaming monitors for HDR, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get a graphics card that actually supports it. Below, you'll find a complete list of all the Nvidia and AMD…

AMD Navi: Everything we know so far about AMD’s next GPU, including release date, specs and potential price

AMD's next-gen Navi GPUs have been a known quantity for a number of years now, but the number of concrete facts about them, such as their specs, release date and price, are still few and far between. With so much of the recent conversation around what's next for gaming graphics cards being dominated by the will-they-won't-they circus of Nvidia's Turing cards, it's easy to forget that Navi's still in the running.…

How to build a PC: A step-by-step guide

Building your own gaming PC isn't too bad if you know what you're doing, but for first-time builders it can be quite the daunting experience. Sometimes, it's just easier to get someone else to do all the legwork for you, especially if you're after something small and diddy like the rather swish Zotac MEK1. Other times, though, it can be both cheaper and more satisfying to make one…

Bag a free copy of The Crew 2 when you buy a new GTX 1080 or GTX 1080Ti

I don't know about you, but there's still a little part of me that feels cut up about the fact we won't be getting Nvidia's Turing graphics cards as soon as we'd hoped. I know, I know, no one really needs to buy a new graphics card in this day and age – especially when most of today's best graphics cards are a) finally back…
