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 £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 poster children 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…

Feature: Beyond a shadow of a doubt

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

There are two types of ray tracing game 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 the most impressive ray tracing game 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 toggle it…

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…

Square Enix teases the future of Final Fantasy XV’s game engine with gorgeous RTX demo

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 RTX 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…

Nvidia’s new Gamescom driver promises better performance and prettier pixels

Not content with tracing all the rays in Minecraft and lots of other big games like Call of Duty and Watch Dogs Legion this week, Nvidia also released a new GeForce Game Ready driver yesterday that promises up to 23% better performance in some of today's big multiplayer games, plus sharper pixels in retro games (see FTL: Faster Than Light running in 4K up the…

Call of Duty’s first RTX trailer is so subtle it needs giant green boxes telling you where to look

The new (and definitely not old) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare may be one of Nvidia's big-shot ray tracing games for 2019, but the first RTX trailer for Infinity Ward's upcoming shootybang is probably one of the least impressive things I've seen since Nvidia first announced their realistic reflection/shadow tech this time last year. Previously, most of Nvidia's RTX On / RTX Off trailers have…

Feature: Now with added Minecraft and Dying Light 2

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

It's Gamescom this week, which can only mean one thing - more confirmed ray tracing games for Nvidia's RTX and selected GTX 16-series graphics cards. Indeed, the big one that's just been announced is Minecraft, which (like Quake II RTX) is getting full, real-time ray tracing support for everything from water reflections to its entire lighting system. That's not all, though. Dying Light 2 will…

Minecraft gets official ray tracing support for Nvidia RTX cards

Just last week, Mojang announced they had cancelled Minecraft's Super Duper cross-platform graphics pack, citing too many technical difficulties in getting it all up and running. Well, there's sort of good news for those of you still yearning for a good-looking version of the blocky sensation, as Nvidia have just announced the Windows 10 edition of the game will be getting official real-time ray tracing…

Feature: Should you spend more on an overclocked GPU?

RTX 2070 Super benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs Zotac vs Asus

Nvidia's RTX 2070 Super is a great graphics card if you're after smooth, 1440p performance, but when you stack up the £475 / $499 Nvidia Founders Edition card I reviewed against AMD's new Radeon RX 5700 XT, it starts to struggle at bit on the old value for money front - just have a look at my big RTX 2070 Super vs RX 5700 XT…

Thank the creepy fridge gods, Control’s PC requirements are now much lighter

Good news for anyone hoping to play Remedy's upcoming telekinetic shooter Control in just a couple of weeks time, as the game's official PC requirements are now a lot lighter than they were a month ago - and yes, I'm aware this is fairly old news by now, but honestly, I've been stuck in a locked room staring at the Bureau's supernatural refrigerator for the…

Feature: Is it worth paying extra for an overclocked card instead?

RTX 2080 Super benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs Zotac

Nvidia's RTX 2080 Super card is arguably the you can buy for 4K at the moment (or at least it is for those who don't have over a grand to spend on the crazy expensive RTX 2080 Ti). But which of the many dozens of RTX 2080 Super cards is it actually worth buying? Is it better to stick with Nvidia's £669 / $699 Founders…
