Feature: When graphics cards go wrong

I accidentally unlocked Horizon Zero Dawn’s N64 mode

Over the last week, I've sat through Horizon Zero Dawn's lengthy optimisation process more times than I care to count. Most people will only ever have to do this once when they play Horizon, but in my attempts to benchmark the game with lots of different graphics cards, it meant sitting through that 10-15 minute start-up sequence every time I put a new card inside…

Feature: When it's not crashing, of course

Horizon Zero Dawn benchmarks: what kind of performance you can expect on PC

Horizon Zero Dawn hasn't got off to the best start on PC. While we've had minimal performance issues here at RPS, others have found it downright unplayable due to frequent crashes, stuttering and more. Guerrilla Games have said that they're investigating these technical problems as a matter of top priority, and we expect another patch to be forthcoming very soon. In the meantime, though, I'd…

Save £10 on Fnatic’s excellent React gaming headset

The Fnatic React is a great all-round gaming headset, but its launch price of £70 made it a slightly tough sell compared to some of my other top gaming headset recommendations. Happily, it's currently on sale for just £60 over at Amazon UK right now, making it a lot more tempting if you're after something a bit more upmarket than the similarly-priced Logitech G432.

Thankfully, it would appear we might be finally getting some proper, concrete information about Nvidia's hotly anticipated RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti and…

Feature: False dawn?

Despite stellar performance on our end, Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC port has been nearly unplayable for others

As you may have noticed, I've been quite impressed with Horizon Zero Dawn's PC port. I've been able to get the game running smoothly at 60fps on High settings even on a lowly GTX 1060 during the course of my testing, and I'm also very fond of Horizon's lovely ultrawide support, too. Sadly, this hasn't been the case for everyone over the last couple of…

Save $450 on this Asus RTX 2070 gaming laptop

Gaming laptops are expensive at the best of times, especially if you want one with a decent graphics chip inside it and isn't the size of a small vehicle. Happily, Newegg have chopped a massive $450 off Asus' ROG Strix Hero III laptop today, taking this normally $2000 gaming machine down to a much more appealing $1550. That's still a sizeable amount of cash, of…

Feature: Broaden your horizons

Horizon Zero Dawn is properly lovely in ultrawide, most of the time

Guerrilla Games have really gone to town on the PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn. Not only have they unlocked the game's frame rate and added in shinier graphics presets to give it PS4-beating performance on relatively low-end hardware, but it's also one of 2020's big PC games to get 21:9 ultrawide support. The latter is something I've been particularly looking forward to after the…
