Feature: Get your RTX cards at the ready

Here are all the confirmed ray tracing and DLSS games so far

Ray tracing is the big buzz word of 2020 in PC gaming, so we've created this list of all the confirmed ray tracing games you can play on PC right now, as well which this year's new PC games will get ray tracing support in the future. And because ray tracing tends to go hand in hand with Nvidia's performance-boosting DLSS tech these days, we've…

Death Stranding’s DLSS tech will turn any RTX card into a 4K 60fps machine

We've still got two weeks to go until Kojima's post-apocalyptic deliver 'em up Death Stranding comes out on PC, but as my early performance tests showed yesterday, even GTX 1060 owners should be able to run the game at 60fps on max settings at 1080p. However, Nvidia have since confirmed that Death Stranding will also be getting DLSS 2.0 support when it comes out on…

Cyberpunk 2077 gets another ray tracing glow up with new screens

If last week's dose of Cyberpunk 2077 RTX goodness wasn't quite enough for you, Nvidia have released some more ray traced screenshots of the game's fancy lighting effects in action. The images don't give much away in terms of the specific ray tracing effects being used in each shot, or what each scene looks like without ray tracing switched on, but if you like shiny…

Here’s a closer look at Cyberpunk 2077’s RTX tech

We already know that Cyberpunk 2077 will one of the biggest ray tracing games of 2020, but Nvidia have now given us a closer look at exactly what ray tracing effects RTX owners can expect to see when the game comes out later this year. It's not entirely clear whether ray tracing will be available on day one when Cyberpunk 2077 launches on November 19th…

Nvidia’s latest graphics driver brings DirectX 12 Ultimate support to RTX cards

I'll take any excuse to wheel out the terrible official logo for Microsoft's DirectX 12 Ultimate tech gubbins, and today's new Nvidia driver gives me just right occasion to do so, as the graphics card giant has just added support for Microsoft's new hardware accelerated ray tracing standard to their latest GeForce driver.

Everything you need to know about Nvidia’s Ampere GPU reveal from GTC 2020

Nvidia didn't announce the hotly rumoured RTX 3080 Ti today, but they did reveal where their new Nvidia Ampere GPU architecture will be landing first - and that's in their new A100 data centre GPU. The A100 system board is that giant graphics card Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang's had stashed away in his oven the past couple of days, and features eight GPUs connected by…

Minecraft’s official ray-tracing update launches in beta this week

I’ve spent countless hours fiddling with Minecraft’s player-made shaders, trying to illuminate my builds with blinding lights to distract from their overall shonkiness. Mojang’s first step into making that sort of rendering official is coming this Thursday, bringing global illumination, shiny reflections, and more. There are a couple of requirements, however.

Feature: Divide and conquer

The Division 2 PC performance: Get your PC Warlords of New York ready

The Division 2 is heading back to the flaming bin-lined streets of the Big Apple this week with the launch of its brand-new expansion, Warlords of New York. Swapping the sunny sights of Washington DC for the now equally sweltering-looking streets of lower Manhattan, The Division 2: Warlords of New York is a great excuse to jump back into Ubisoft's giant open world looter shooter…

Updated: Nvidia unveil Cyberpunk 2077 graphics card, and now we need new cybernetic eyes

Update: And here it is in all its mildly heinous yellow glory! As you can probably see from the front of Nvidia's new Cyberpunk-ified GPU (provided its intense yellow hasn't blinded you), this is just a special edition of their regular RTX 2080 Ti graphics card rather than a whole new launch or RTX Super reveal. The good news, though, is that it won't cost…

Doom Eternal won’t have ray tracing for quite some time

Bad news for anyone hoping to play Doom Eternal in all its real-time ray tracing glory when it comes out on March 20th, as id Software's studio director Marty Stratton has confirmed that the team have only just started to look at what they can do with the fancy pants reflection tech. As a result, it's looking increasingly unlikely that Doom Eternal will have ray…

Feature: Slaying those frames

Wired2Fire’s Predator PC is primed and ready for 1440p gaming for just under Ā£1300

At the end of last year, I put together our official RPS Rig, which included everything you needed to build a gaming PC for less than £1000, including your monitor, mouse and keyboard and all the extra peripherals that go with a modern PC. However, many of you asked what that rig would look like if it was just the PC that cost £1000 (you…

Six months after launch, ray tracing finally comes to Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Wolfenstein: Youngblood was one of Nvidia's big ray tracing games of last year, and it was even one of the free games you could get if you bought a new RTX graphics card over the summer. However, whereas its other freebie stablemate Control teleported its ray tracing support in at launch, Wolfenstein: Youngblood positively dragged its cybernetic heels over it, with months and months passing…

Feature: Awkward...

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…

Modern Warfare RTX: A guide to Call of Duty’s RTX ray tracing performance

There are two types of ray tracing games 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 one of the most impressive ray tracing games 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…

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…

Nvidia’s new RTX bundle now comes with a free copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

If you've yet to buy an Nvidia RTX graphics card, there's a new game bundle in town. Previously, Nvidia were giving away free copies of Control and Wolfenstein: Youngblood when you bought any qualifying RTX or RTX Super GPU, laptop or desktop, but starting today until November 18th they're going to be lobbing in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with them instead. As you may…

Nvidia are apparently prepping a GTX 1660 Super, and I’m completely baffled by it

The graphics card rumour mill never ceases to amaze me. Despite no hard evidence whatsoever, the latest thing being whispered around the internet is that Nvidia are apparently getting ready to launch two new GTX 16-series graphics cards - the GTX 1660 Super and the GTX 1650 Ti. Indeed, after first spotting the story on Chinese news site MyDrivers, even renowned leakers VideoCardz have admitted…

Want a taste of what 'next-gen' graphics are going to look like? Well, the clever folks over at Square Enix's Luminous Productions studio (the wizards wot made Final Fantasy XV) have just released a brand new tech demo called 'Back Stage' doing just that. Made in collaboration with Nvidia, this real-time ray tracing demo isn't related to any particular game per se (or at least…

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 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 2080,…
