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…

Feature: There's a lot more to Nvidia's RTX graphics cards than just ray tracing

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. (You can do…

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…

Feature: Quite a lot, really.

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…

CES 2019: Nvidia RTX 2060 is here, it’s faster than a GTX 1070Ti and costs $349

Five months ago, Nvidia lifted the lid on their next generation of [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] graphics cards, the GTX 1080-beating RTX 2070, the sort-of-but-not-quite-as-good-as-the-GTX-1080Ti RTX 2080 and the 4K monster that is the RTX 2080Ti. Now, the long awaited RTX 2060 is joining the ranks, and I've just had my ear talked off about it at Nvidia's CES 2019 press conference. Here's everything we…

Feature: Cast Haste on FFXV's frame rate at 4K

Final Fantasy XV’s DLSS boosts PC performance by around 10-15fps on the RTX 2080

Nvidia's performance-boosting DLSS tech arrived in Final Fantasy XV last week, allowing all three people who've actually bought themselves one of Nvidia's new Turing RTX cards to finally start making use of what makes the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti so special. I'm still a bit miffed this fancy, AI-driven edge-smoothening magic only works at 4K at the moment, thereby making it…

Nvidia’s performance-boosting DLSS tech finally arrives in Final Fantasy XV, but…

Anyone who didn't uninstall Final Fantasy XV in a fit of despair and/or rage last month after the abrupt cancellation of 75% of its upcoming DLC will have noticed a delightful 15GB update waiting for them on Steam today, in which finally arrives support for Nvidia's frame rate rocketing tech, DLSS (or deep learning super sampling, if that makes things any clearer). It's one of…

This RTX 2070 Black Friday deal gets you free Battlefield V and a $40 Steam voucher

The Black Friday graphics card deals just keep on coming, this time in the form of Ebuyer's rather intriguing Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 bundle. For £540, you get the MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming Z graphics card, a free copy of Battlefield V and (rather bizarrely for a UK website) a $40 Steam voucher, which is really quite a lot of free stuff when you…

Feature: Just a shame about the price

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 review: Better than the GTX 1080

As graphics card launches go, it's probably fair to say the new [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] cards have had a pretty terrible one so far. With concerns over their somewhat extortionate pricing and the continued lack of all those confirmed RTX ray tracing and DLSS games to really show what their magic Turing GPUs are made of, it's left both the RTX 2080 and RTX…

Feature: Clash of the 4K titans

RTX 2080 Ti benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs MSI vs Zotac

Despite costing an arm, a leg plus a couple of kidneys, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has quickly established itself as the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] on the planet. If you've ever wanted to play games in 4K at the highest settings without the faff of gaffer-taping two GPUs together via SLI bridges and whatnot, the RTX 2080 Ti is by far and away…

Nvidia’s RTX 2070 seems to be only slightly faster than a GTX 1080

With just a day to go until the launch of Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, those eager to see what the new [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] cards are capable of will no doubt have seen a flurry of reviews running through the internet halls this afternoon - and the early verdict seems to be it's just a little bit faster than Nvidia's current GTX 1080.

Windows 10 October update finally adds ray-tracing support for Nvidia’s RTX Turing cards

If you've turned on your Windows 10 PC today, you've probably been hassled at least three times by now that it's time for another big old update - specifically, the Windows 10 October update. This time, however, it's actually got a bunch of neat gaming goodies in store, especially if you're one of the three people who have already bought one of the new [block…

Nvidia RTX 2080Ti vs GTX 1080Ti: Clash of the 4K graphics cards

Last week, after much hype and excitement, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card was finally unleashed on the world. Today, it's the turn of its beefed-up big brother, the RTX 2080Ti, whose release was delayed by a week for reasons lost to the bowels of Nvidia's marketing department. As you can see from my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review, this is hands down the [block…

Feature: Frame of mind

Nvidia RTX 2080 vs GTX 1080: How much faster is Nvidia’s new graphics card?

In my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review last week, we discovered that Nvidia's super duper new graphics card was about as fast as their GTX 1080Ti when paired with Intel's Core i5-8600K CPU, representing only the teensiest bit of improvement to your overall frames per second output if you were to bung one in your PC today. That may well change once we start seeing…

Feature: Pumping it to the max, literally

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review: A true 4K monster card

For the three of you whose goal in life has only ever been to play games on max settings at 4K with nary a drop in frame rate at 60fps, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti is a dream come true. A rather expensive £1049 / $1150 dream, all told, but a dream nonetheless. For this 4K monster beast is by far the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] I've…

Feature: The frames, they are too great

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review: Too much power for a Core i5 PC

This time tomorrow, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 will have finally arrived. There's been a lot of fanfare around its quite nifty ray-tracing tech, not to mention all the other cool [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] things it can do, but is it really the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] of all time? At the moment, it's hard to say - outside of a couple of…

Nvidia RTX 2080Ti release date has been delayed by a week

Just days before it was meant to go on sale, Nvidia have confirmed that the launch date of their new RTX 2080Ti graphics card has been pushed back by a week until Thursday September 27. It's currently unclear whether the delay is due to a shortage of cards, Nvidia wanting to give the Ti's little brother, the RTX 2080, a little bit of breathing room…
