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…

Feature: GPU below Gears 5's PC requirements? Fear not.

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…

Square Enix teases the future of Final Fantasy XV’s game engine with gorgeous RTX demo

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…

Metro Exodus graphics performance: How to get the best settings

The first of Metro Exodus' two DLC expansions arrives on PC today, so I thought it was high time to revisit my jumbo graphics performance test to tell you how to get the best settings on even more of today's [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"]s. After all, there have been several new Nvidia RTX and AMD Navi cards released since Metro Exodus came out in…

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…

Call of Duty’s first RTX trailer is so subtle it needs giant green boxes telling you where to look

The new (and definitely not old) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare may be one of Nvidia's big-shot ray tracing games for 2019, but the first RTX trailer for Infinity Ward's upcoming shootybang is probably one of the least impressive things I've seen since Nvidia first announced their realistic reflection/shadow tech this time last year. Previously, most of Nvidia's RTX On / RTX Off trailers have…

Feature: Now with added Minecraft and Dying Light 2

All the Nvidia RTX ray tracing and DLSS games confirmed so far

It's Gamescom this week, which can only mean one thing - more confirmed ray tracing games for Nvidia's RTX and selected GTX 16-series graphics cards. Indeed, the big one that's just been announced is Minecraft, which (like Quake II RTX) is getting full, real-time ray tracing support for everything from water reflections to its entire lighting system. That's not all, though. Dying Light 2 will…

Minecraft gets official ray tracing support for Nvidia RTX cards

Just last week, Mojang announced they had cancelled Minecraft's Super Duper cross-platform graphics pack, citing too many technical difficulties in getting it all up and running. Well, there's sort of good news for those of you still yearning for a good-looking version of the blocky sensation, as Nvidia have just announced the Windows 10 edition of the game will be getting official real-time ray tracing…

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…

Thank the creepy fridge gods, Control’s PC requirements are now much lighter

Good news for anyone hoping to play Remedy's upcoming telekinetic shooter Control in just a couple of weeks time, as the game's official PC requirements are now a lot lighter than they were a month ago - and yes, I'm aware this is fairly old news by now, but honestly, I've been stuck in a locked room staring at the Bureau's supernatural refrigerator for the…

Feature: Is it worth paying extra for an overclocked card instead?

RTX 2080 Super benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs Zotac

Nvidia's RTX 2080 Super card is arguably the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] you can buy for 4K at the moment (or at least it is for those who don't have over a grand to spend on the crazy expensive RTX 2080 Ti). But which of the many dozens of RTX 2080 Super cards is it actually worth buying? Is it better to stick with…

Nvidia RTX 2070 Super vs 2080 Super: How much faster is Nvidia’s new 4K graphics card?

Nvidia's RTX 2080 Super card is finally here. Offering superior speeds for roughly the same price as the original RTX 2080, the RTX 2080 Super is pretty much the 4K graphics card to beat right now outside of Nvidia's crazy expensive RTX 2080 Ti - especially as it currently has no real competition from the likes of AMD right now, either. In fact, its closest…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super review: Faster 4K for no extra cost

It seems like an eternity has passed since the initial launch of Nvidia's RTX Super cards, but here we are at last with the final GPU in the trilogy, the RTX 2080 Super. It's still not the most powerful graphics card in Nvidia's RTX arsenal - that honour continues to be held by the RTX 2080 Ti - but compared to the rest of Nvidia's…

Gears 5 graphics performance looks as slick as a well-oiled Lancer

Good news for anyone looking forward to playing Gears of War 5 later this year, as this weekend's multiplayer tech test has been showing some very promising results in the old graphics card performance department. I played a chunk of it yesterday and saw lots of lovely high frame rates from both my 6GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 970 GPUs, showing you don't…
