Red Dead Redemption 2 PC settings guide: How to get the best performance

Red Dead Redemption 2 hasn't had the smoothest of starts on PC, but now that most of its crashing issues and unexpectedly quitting launcher problems appear to have been resolved, it's time to take a closer look at Red Dead Redemption 2's PC settings and how you can get this beaut of a game running as smoothly as possible. In this article, I've focused on…

Feature: Awkward...

You don’t need an RTX 2060 to get 60fps in Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1080p

Earlier this week, Nvidia claimed you'd need one of their RTX 2060 cards to hit 60fps on High quality settings at 1920x1080 in Red Dead Redemption 2, which at the time sounded rather excessive. After all, an RTX 2060 is generally what I'd recommend for playing games at 2560x1440 these days, so to say you'd need this kind of calibre card for 1080p on not…

Nvidia GTX 1060 vs 1660 Super: How much faster is Nvidia’s new graphics card?

Nvidia's GTX 1060 has been the cornerstone of many a gaming PC over the last couple of years, but its time in the sun is slowly coming to an end. Indeed, it was technically succeeded by Nvidia's 16-series of GTX graphics cards earlier this year when the GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti arrived. Now, though, there's another 16-series card on the block: the GTX…

Nvidia GTX 1660 Super vs 1660 Ti: Which is best?

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Super is in a bit of an odd place right now. It's a teensy bit faster than its non-Super sibling, the regular old GTX 1660, but not quite fast enough to really a proper impact on your minute-to-minute gaming performance. But given the GTX 1660 was already pretty close in speed to its more expensive cousin, the GTX 1660 Ti, is…

Nvidia GTX 1660 vs 1660 Super: Which one should you buy?

It's only been eight months since Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 graphics card first came out, but already it's got a Super-fied successor in the form of the GTX 1660 Super. I've already gone into a pretty detailed breakdown of how both cards compare in my Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super review, but sometimes it's just easier to see things laid out in some nice bar…

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super review: A decent 1080p card that’s utterly superfluous

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I do not understand why the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super needs to exist. Yes, it's a mildly more powerful version of the original GTX 1660, now boasting 6GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at a nippy 14 Gbps instead of 6GB of the slower GDDR5 type that ran at just 8 Gbps, and yes, Nvidia's decision…

Nvidia have come up with a list of graphics cards for playing Red Dead 2 at 60fps and it ain’t purdy

Saddle up cowpokes, because Red Dead Redemption 2 rides out on PC at 1pm UK time today (5am PST). I must admit, I let out a big sigh of relief when I saw Rockstar's PC requirements for Red Dead 2 the other week, as their recommended graphics card topped out at just a 6GB GTX 1060. Easy, I thought. However, Nvidia have just published their…

Modern Warfare RTX: A guide to Call of Duty’s RTX ray tracing performance

There are two types of ray tracing game that have emerged over 2019. On the one hand you've got your big, bombastic feast-for-the-eyes type games like Minecraft RTX, Control and Metro Exodus, and on the other you've got your subtle, squint-and-you-miss-it jobs like Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its ray traced shadows fall squarely into the…

Feature: Catching some rays

Minecraft RTX is the poster child ray tracing needs, but it’s a brute to run

In terms of pure visual spectacle, Minecraft RTX is hands down the most impressive ray tracing game I've seen to date. Unlike other RTX-enabled games where you need big green boxes or a magnifying glass to see the fancy lighting effects, Minecraft RTX puts them right in your face. It's like having a Creeper explode point blank in your retina every time you toggle it…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

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

HDR on PC hasn't improved much in 2019. Despite there being more HDR gaming monitors than ever before, the very [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR continue to be quite expensive compared to non-HDR monitors, and the situation around Windows 10 support for it is still a bit of a mess. However, provided you're willing to fight through all that, then the next step on your…

Nvidia adds ReShade filters to GeForce Experience

In addition to launching the GTX 1660 Super today, Nvidia's latest GeForce driver brings some neat new features to their GeForce Experience app. Chief among them is built-in support for ReShade filters, the popular post-processing shader tool that modders often use to enhance or change the overall look of a game. Instead of 'injecting' or installing them manually into each individual game, you'll now be…

Surprise! Nvidia’s GTX 1660 Super and 1650 Super are real and I still don’t know why they exist

In March and April of this year, Nvidia released their excellent GTX 1660 graphics card and their slightly less impressive GTX 1650. While the latter wasn't much cop compared to AMD's existing RX 570 GPU, the former went straight in as our [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] choice for 1080p gaming. Now, for some reason, Nvidia have decided to replace those cards with even shinier…

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

Just when you thought it was safe, the race for best graphics card is starting to heat up again. At least when it comes to best budget graphics cards, anyway. Not only do we have the launch of AMD's Radeon RX 5500 to look forward to, but there are lots of rumours doing the rounds that Nvidia are also prepping their GTX 1660 Super to…

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.
