Feature: Now with added Cyberpunk 2077, Watch Dogs: Legion and Call of Duty

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

The number of confirmed ray tracing games for [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] and selected GTX graphics cards has just got a little bit longer. With E3 2019 in full swing, Nvidia have confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077, Watch Dogs Legion and the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will also be getting full ray tracing support, and in the case of Call of Duty, adaptive shading…

Quake II gets free Nvidia RTX treatment on June 6

When Nvidia showed off their ray traced Quake II demo at the beginning of the year, everyone (including our own Alec, RPS in peace) went a bit nuts for it. Despite being a heck of a lot older than all the other shiny RTX games on show, it was Quake II that really made people sit up and pay attention to what Nvidia's new fancy…

Nvidia GTX ray tracing revisited: How much faster are the GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti?

Last month, I put Nvidia's GTX ray tracing driver to the test, seeing what kind of speeds were possible on the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 in Metro Exodus and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The results, it's fair to say, were pretty mixed. Metro was completely unplayable on both cards, but Tomb Raider did, in fact, show promising signs of life as long as…

Nvidia GTX 1650 vs 1060: What’s the difference?

We've already seen how the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 compares to its most immediate predecessor, the GTX 1050 Ti (have a read of our GTX 1650 vs 1050 Ti article for the complete skinny), but have you ever wondered how it stacks up to today's most popular graphics card, Nvidia's 6GB GTX 1060? Well, wonder no more, as I've put both cards head to…

Nvidia GTX 1650 vs 1050 Ti: How much faster is Nvidia’s new graphics card?

At long last, we have a successor to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. But just how much faster is Nvidia's new GTX 1650, and is it worth the upgrade for current GTX 1050 Ti owners? To help answer that question, I've gone and made some more graphs, pitting each graphics card against each other to see how they fare at 1920x1080 across a variety…

Nvidia GTX 1650 vs RX 570: Clash of the 1080p graphics cards

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 is the latest graphics card in Nvidia's budget-oriented Turing line-up. Aimed at 1080p gamers looking to get 60fps on either Medium to High settings, it's a tempting buy for just £139 / $149. But when the 8GB version of AMD's Radeon RX 570 can be found for practically the same amount of money these days, the battle for which graphics…

Feature: But it can't match AMD's Radeon RX 570

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 review: 1080p gaming on a budget

If you've been thinking about upgrading your graphics card recently, you've probably been watching Nvidia's new budget-oriented GTX 16-series pretty closely. Based on Nvidia's new Turing GPU but without all the expensive RTX gubbins like DLSS support and dedicated ray tracing cores, the £200 / $220 GTX 1660 and £260 / $280 GTX 1660 Ti have both become quite formidable cards over the last couple…

Alienware Aurora R8 review: A pint-sized RTX 2080 Ti PC

Considering it has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and an Intel Core i9-9900K inside it, Alienware's Aurora R8 gaming desktop sure is diddly. Measuring 472mm tall, 212mm wide and just 360mm deep, this sleek, 28 litre chassis is noticeably smaller than the mid-tower case I've currently got shoved under my desk. It's so small, in fact, that it can sit on top of my…

Nvidia’s new GTX 1650 costs £138 / $149 and consumes just 75W

Just when you thought Nvidia's "Let's release a new graphics card every two weeks" frenzy was finally over, they've gone and done it again with the freshly hatched GeForce GTX 1650. I'll be putting one to the test very shortly (drivers for the card have only just been made available for the card today, so it will take some time to run all my usual…

DXR ray tracing comes to Nvidia’s GTX graphics cards in latest Game Ready driver

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…

Unity engine revs up for real-time ray tracing support by the end of 2019

Unity Technologies are bringing real-time ray tracing support to their popular Unity game-making engine by the end of the year, the company have announced today at GDC, paving the way for more games to take advantage of Nvidia's shiny new RTX graphics cards and their fancy pants reflection tech. And to give everyone a taste of what ray tracing looks like in their titular engine,…

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.

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…

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,…
