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…

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…

Feature: And which one should you buy?

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…

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: Out of this world

The Outer Worlds PC requirements and how to get the best performance

The time to take a trip to The Outer Worlds has finally arrived. Not to be confused with the Outer Wilds, you understand. Oh no, that's a different space shuttle bus altogether. The Outer Worlds is Obsidian's new intergalactic RPG, the folks wot made Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity, and I've been taking a look at how well it runs on PC. The…

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…

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is finally out in the wild, but if your PC is struggling to get the game running, then this Ghost Recon Breakpoint PC performance guide is here to help. After all, Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a bit of a beast to get running on PC, so I've tested a bunch of today's [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"]s with it to see what…

Borderlands 3 performance: How to get the best settings

Borderlands 3 may have been 2K's fastest selling game in the history of forever, but it sure hasn't been very quick about fixing its various performance problems over on PC. While last week's hotfix patch squashed a couple of performance-related issues, a proper solution for getting rid of things like stuttering and its DX12 load time problems has yet to materialise. Still, while we're waiting…

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…

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…

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…

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…
