RTX 2080 Ti benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs MSI vs Zotac

Despite costing an arm, a leg plus a couple of kidneys, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080Ti has quickly established itself as the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] on the planet. If you've ever wanted to play games in 4K at the highest settings without the faff of gaffer-taping two GPUs together via SLI bridges and whatnot, the RTX 2080Ti is by far and away the best…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

When it comes to graphics performance, Assassin's Creed has always been a tough nut to crack on PC. Assassin's Creed Oranges was an absolute beast to get running smoothly when it came out last year, and it continues to be one of the most demanding games in my graphic cards benchmarking suite. This year's Ancient Greece-themed installment, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, is, thankfully, a little less…

Forza Horizon 4 graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

If there was ever a game series that had a Jekyll and Hyde-type relationship, it would definitely be Forza. On one side you've got the serious Forza Motorsport games that have been oiled to perfection for no nonsense racing sim fans, and on the other you've got the wild, off-the-cuff Horizon crew that would sooner blast a novelty air horn in your face than worry…

Nvidia RTX 2080Ti vs GTX 1080Ti: Clash of the 4K graphics cards

Last week, after much hype and excitement, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card was finally unleashed on the world. Today, it's the turn of its beefed-up big brother, the RTX 2080Ti, whose release was delayed by a week for reasons lost to the bowels of Nvidia's marketing department. As you can see from my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review, this is hands down the [block…

Shadow of the Tomb Raider graphics performance: How to get the best settings for your PC

The latest Tomb Raider reboot games have always been big technical showcases on PC, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider is no exception. After a slightly rocky pre-release build that's thankfully been ironed out in time for today's release (have a read of John's newly updated Shadow of the Tomb Raider review if you're still unsure), this is easily one of the most demanding games…

Feature: There's a lot more to Nvidia's Turing GPU than just ray-tracing

Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti: Turing’s best features explained

After all the rush and excitement of Nvidia's Turing launch at Gamescom, there's now less than a week to go before those shiny new GeForce RTX graphics cards are out in the wild. On September 20 and 27, both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti will replace the GTX 1080 and GTX 1080Ti as Nvidia's top dog bestest [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"]s - and…

Metro Exodus targeting 60fps 1080p for new Nvidia RTX features

Ever since Nvidia officially unveiled their Turing RTX 2080 cards on Monday, we've heard nothing but 'ray tracing this' and 'Giga Rays that' - so much so that I can probably now recite 3573 things about their fancy pants lighting equations off by heart. What I can't say 3753 things about is their frame rate performance, mostly because Nvidia have only revealed a small handful…

Monster Hunter: World can go beyond 60fps, but you’re going to need a monstrous PC to do it

Greetings, hunters! Dinosaur hat-making sim Monster Hunter: World is coming out on PC very soon (August 9, to be precise), and I've been doing some early tinkering with its various graphics settings. The good news first: if you were worried about the game being capped at 30fps like the console versions, you'll be pleased to hear MHW has an uncapped frame rate option in its…

EA’s Project Pica Pica leads new wave of photorealistic ray-tracing graphics demos at GDC 2018

You love games. We love games. We love 2D games, 3D games, pixel games, life-like games, even slightly shonky-looking games. But what about if games looked, I don't know, even better? Like, cinematic rendering, photorealistic kind of better? Well, Nvidia are on the case, as they've just announced their brand-new, not-at-all-incomprehensible "RTX Ray-Tracing" technology at GDC 2018.

Magical: Trine Conjures Up Online Co-op In Engine Switch

I remember Trine as being awfully pretty but no, apparently it wasn't pretty enough for developers Frozenbyte (and, having now returned to the game, it seems my memory's not quite what it was). They're porting Trine over to the Trine 2 engine, giving the puzzle-platformer a fairytale makeover and its sequel's online co-op. While Frozenbyte may disappearing off on their summer hols soon and don't…

Photorealism And The Confusing Myths Of Innovation

In an excerpt from a forthcoming Games Industry International interview, we find this statement from 2K boss Christoph Hartmann: "Recreating a Mission Impossible experience in gaming is easy; recreating emotions in Brokeback Mountain is going to be tough, or at least very sensitive in this country... it will be very hard to create very deep emotions like sadness or love, things that drive the movies,"…
