Graphics card deals of the week – 1st June 2020

Pinch, punch, first of the month, graphics card deal hunters. Unfortunately, the turning of the calendar means we bid farewell to the free games offer that made AMD-flavoured graphics cards such exceptional value.

The RPS Rig: Everything you need to play games for less than £1000

It's been a while since we first introduced the RPS Rig, our £1000 PC build that includes everything you need to start playing PC games, during which time prices for our prized components have gone up, down, or disappeared altogether. So I'd thought I'd give it a bit of a spring clean, especially after last week's launch of the excellent AMD Ryzen 3 3300X CPU.…

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…

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…
