Feature: Murder on the graphics floor

Final Fantasy XV graphics performance: Will it kill my GPU?

PC games usually fall into two camps when it comes to recommended specifications. There's the 'Yes, you'll probably be fine' category, and the 'SWEET LORD CRYSIS 3 IS ABOUT TO MAKE MY PC MELT' bracket. Final Fantasy XV, the anime boyband stag do roadtrip JRPG, almost certainly falls into the latter, so I got together a bunch of graphics cards to see how they fared…

Maybe Nvidia won’t be releasing their new Ampere/Turing graphics cards at GTC 2018 after all

Earlier this week, the hot goss on the graphics card grapevine was that Nvidia was going to launch its new, next-gen line-up of GeForce GTX graphics cards at this year's GTC 2018 conference later this month. Dubbed Nvidia Turing, these cards would replace Nvidia's current range of 10-series cards, such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 etc, with a brand-new, potential 20-series or maybe…

Feature: Is mid-range the new high end?

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 review: The best 1440p graphics card (for now)

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is Nvidia's new mid-range contender, chasing the coat tails of its more powerful big brother, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and rubbing shoulders with the AMD Radeon RX 580 for 2560x1440 gaming goodness. Or at least the 6GB version of Nvidia's card is, as you'll also find lesser 3GB variants on sale as well. 3GB models have the same basic DNA…

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 review: Still the best 1440p graphics card in 2018?

For many PC gamers, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 is the next logical step up from the excellent GTX 970. While not as powerful as the beefy Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080, it still offers significant gains over its lesser sibling, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, providing a smoother, more flexible gaming experience at both 1080p and 1440p alike, and even a teeny bit of 4K. The problem is,…

Feature: Sorry, how much?

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 review: The best 4K graphics card right now

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 is no longer top dog in its GPU family - that honour now goes the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti and, of course, the frankly ridiculous Titan Xp. However, with graphics card prices currently hitting all-time highs due to the rather ridiculous craze for cryptocurrency mining, the GTX 1080 is now our top choice for those after a 4K capable graphics card. If you don't believe…

Stop That, It’s Silly: Nvidia’s New Titan X Graphics Card

Sooner than anyone expected, Nvidia has rolled out its latest uber graphics card. It's the new Titan X. It's undoubtedly the fastest and bestest PC graphics board ever and probably by some margin. And it will cost you $1,200 and probably a similar post-VAT sterling figure back in the old, disintegrating empire. Call me a desiccated old cynic, but this is getting silly...

Feature: Know your Pascal from your Polaris...

Nvidia’s New GeForce GTX 1080 Graphics

Hate to say I told you so. Or rather, I don't and so I'm going to gloat. Contrary to numerous comment protestations, Nvidia's 2016 graphics awesomeness has begun in the shape of its new GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 cards. Based on the new Pascal architecture and teensy 16nm transistors, the new GPUs are exactly as expected. And yet also quite different. Meanwhile, AMD has…

2016 Awesomeness: Nvidia’s New Pascal Graphics

If it was a car it would be a gold-wrapped, kleptocrat-owned Bugatti Veyron ostentatiously double parked outside a Knightsbridge hotel. It's still bloated, it's still overly complex and you still can't afford it. But it's a graphics chip and a harbinger of things you might actually be able to buy. I give you Nvidia's new Pascal GP100, a 15.3 billion transistor beast and the beginnings…

2016 Will Be Great For Gamers: Part 1, Graphics

Four long, desolate years. Yup, it really was 1,460 sleeps ago, almost to the day, that the very first 28 nanometer graphics chip was launched, allowing card-makers to squeeze billions more transistors into their GPUs - meaning better performance for theoretically lower costs as a result. But here we are and 28nm is still as good as it gets for PC graphics. That's a bummer,…
