Today's the day that Microsoft's DirectX ray tracing tech (or DXR for short) arrives on Nvidia's GeForce GTX 10-series and 16-series graphics cards. First announced three weeks ago, Nvidia's latest Game Ready driver, out today, will allow everyone with a 6GB GTX 1060 upwards to take advantage of all the shiny shadow and reflection enhancements in games such as Metro Exodus, Battlefield V and Shadow…

Nvidia are bringing DirectX ray tracing to GTX graphics cards, starting with the 6GB GTX 1060

Yes, you read that correctly. Nvidia have announced they're going to enable DirectX ray tracing (or DXR for short) on GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards, starting with the 6GB GTX 1060 next month. The update will come via a new Game Ready Driver expected sometime in April, and the hope is that it will finally give developers the shot in the arm they so desperately…

Feature: The Turing vs Pascal smackdown you've been waiting for

Nvidia GTX 1660 vs GTX 1060: Which is faster?

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is finally a thing that exists, and what a neat thing it is, too. Available from just £200 / $220, it's now pretty much exactly the same price as Nvidia's existing 6GB GTX 1060, which until now has been one of my top recommendations over in my [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] list as to what you should actually buy…

Nvidia GTX 1660 vs 1660 Ti: What’s the difference?

Nvidia finally lifted the lid on their new GTX 1660 graphics card yesterday, which is the baby sibling to their also recently-released (and newly-crowned [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] champ) GTX 1660 Ti. But what difference does that 'Ti' moniker actually make, and is it worth spending the extra £60 / $60 on it? To find out, it's time to look at some tasty graphs.

Feature: The price is so, so right

PC Specialist Apollo R1 review: A GTX 1660 gaming PC for just £700

There's no denying the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is a great graphics card for £200 / $220. Offering 60fps speeds at High or maximum settings at 1080p, and Medium to High at 1440p, it's effectively replaced the 6GB GTX 1060 as my new [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] of choice for budget-conscious buyers. In terms of overall value, however, it faces stiff competition from the…

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 review: Faster than a GTX 1060 for the same price

Well, that didn't take long, did it? Just three weeks ago, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Ti came crashing into our [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] list as our new champion for flawless 1080p gaming, and today sees the release of its non-Ti sibling, the regular GTX 1660. Priced at an even more palatable £200 / $220, Nvidia say this graphics card is primed and ready…

Asus ROG Strix Scar II review: RTX on the go

Nvidia's first crop of RTX gaming laptops are finally here and the first one to slide across my desk is Asus' ROG Strix Scar II GL504GW. Packed with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM and one of Nvidia's new RTX 2070 chips, this 15.6in laptop is primed and ready to take full advantage of its 1920x1080 resolution display and 144Hz refresh rate, but…

Feature: The race for best 1080p graphics card just got a lot more interesting

Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti vs GTX 1060: Out with the old, in with the new

Ever since it came out all those years ago, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 has been one of the go-to graphics cards of this generation. Capable of superb frame rates at 1080p and 1440p alike, there's no wonder it's become one of the most popular GPUs on the planet. Now, however, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has arrived, and by golly it's a corker. In…

Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti vs RTX 2060: Which one should you buy?

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is finally here. Hailing from the same Turing family as the rest of Nvidia's RTX graphics cards but without all the fancy ray tracing and DLSS tech inside it (hence the lack of RTX moniker), the GTX 1660 Ti sure is one powerful graphics card - so much so that it's gone straight in as my new [block id="604467"…

Feature: Move over GTX 1060, there's a new top 1080p graphics card in town

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti review: The new benchmark for flawless 1080p gaming

Let's get this out of the way now. The GTX 1660 Ti is a terrible, terrible name. It's confusingly similar to Nvidia's existing GTX 1060, implying it's some sort of weird, halfway house between that and the GTX 1070, when in fact it's actually part of Nvidia's new Turing family, which is the same GPU inside their new RTX 20-series cards, making it, in effect,…

Battlefield V and Metro Exodus receive DLSS support for Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards

It's been a long time coming, but the list of games with proper, honest-to-goodness [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] support you can actually take advantage of in-game is finally getting a teensy bit longer today, as Nvidia have announced their performance-boosting DLSS tech is coming to both Battlefield V and Metro Exodus as part of their next graphics driver update - just in time for budding…

Radeon VII vs RTX 2080 Ti: Clash of the top-end graphics cards

With no sign of AMD's next generation of Navi GPUs in sight, their newly-released Radeon 7 is currently their toppest of top-end graphics cards available today. But how does it stack up against Nvidia's toppest of top-end graphics cards, the RTX 2080 Ti? That's what we're here to find out - and I've even done my graph colours the right way round this time, which…

Yep, it looks like the GTX 1660 Ti is definitely a thing that’s happening

After the spilling of some official presentation slide beans at the end of January, it would appear the Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti is very much on its way after a swathe of retail boxes have been spotted in the wild. Packed with Nvidia's next-gen Turing GPU but allegedly no ray tracing support, the current rumour mill pegs the release of the GTX 1660 Ti as…

Feature: Now with added Anthem

All the Nvidia RTX ray tracing and DLSS games confirmed so far

With the arrival of the RTX 2060, we now have four [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] cards that can take advantage of the GPU giant's cool new graphics features, such as their reflection-enhancing ray tracing magic and performance-boosting DLSS tech. But not all games can do both things at the same time, and many more still have no confirmed support for ray tracing and DLSS at…

Nvidia RTX: Everything you need to know about ray tracing, DLSS and Nvidia’s next-gen graphics cards

Nvidia's next generation of RTX graphics cards are finally here, and several of them have already made their way into my bestest [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] list thanks to their fast performance and powerful new features compared to their outgoing GTX counterparts. But what makes an Nvidia RTX card better than a regular old GTX one, and how do they stack up compared to…

Now I’ve tried raytraced Quake II, and it’s a dark delight

The other week, I got my y-fronts in a bunch about how some clever fella had added raytracing to Quake II. A 22-year-old first-person shooter had effectively beaten everyone else to the punch when it came to the new*, more naturalistic form of game lighting currently only available (at least without calamitous performance) on the most recent [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] cards.

GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti apparently confirmed in leaked Nvidia presentation

So much for the RTX 2050 being Nvidia's next graphics card, then. While rumours have been circulating for a while now about a cheaper, non-ray tracing version of Nvidia's Turing GPU, I'd assumed the graphics card giant might finish releasing their GeForce RTX family before they started muddying the waters with potential GTX 1100 series GPUs or, as it now turns out, a new line…

GTX 1060 vs RTX 2060: How much faster is Nvidia’s next-gen GPU?

As you may have seen in my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 review yesterday, Nvidia's latest graphics card is really quite powerful. Despite being around £100 / $100 more expensive than its immediate numbered predecessor, the GTX 1060, the boost in speed you get from the [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] 2060 is absolutely worth it in my books, especially if you're looking for a capable 2560x1440…

Feature: Your new best graphics card for 1440p gaming

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 review: Just as good as the GTX 1070Ti for a fraction of the price

Ever since Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 came out in 2016, it's not only been the de facto, bestest [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] for flawless 1080p gaming, but also the go-to GPU for cash-strapped 1440p-ers, offering smooth, if slightly less shiny, frame rates for a much lower price than Nvidia's more capable GTX 1070 or GTX 1070Ti. It was a fantastic card when it launched…
