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…

Best graphics card 2019: Top GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

Just when you thought things had finally calmed down in the world of best graphics cards, Nvidia goes and releases another one in the form of the GTX 1660. The baby sibling of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, its low price of £200 and its fast speeds mean it's now my new top recommendation for those after the best graphics card for 1080p gaming…

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 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 best graphics card of choice for budget-conscious buyers. In terms of overall value, however, it faces stiff competition from the equally nippy…

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 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 to replace…

The lost dimension: Nvidia ending 3D Vision support

Nvidia plan to soon stop supporting 3D Vision, the 3D glasses system they introduced in 2009. The GeForce driver release in April will be the last to support 3D Vision, so folks who wish to keep using their goggs will need to stick to older drivers - which could suffer compatibility and performance problems in the future. 3D Vision created the appearance of physical depth…

Nvidia add three more monitors to their G-Sync Compatible list, plus a new Metro Exodus RTX bundle

Nvidia have announced that another three monitors have joined their exclusive G-Sync Compatible fold today, taking the total number of adaptive sync / FreeSync monitors that can officially sort of take advantage of their swish variable refresh rate G-Sync tech to 15. And if that wasn't enough, Nvidia have also added Metro Exodus to their current RTX graphics card bundle, giving new RTX buyers another…

Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti vs GTX 1070: Which graphics card is faster?

I know it seems like I've been comparing the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with practically every graphics card under the sun recently, including Nvidia's RTX 2060 and GTX 1060, but now it's time to take one final look at how it stacks up against its other main competition, the GTX 1070. Costing just a little bit more than the GTX 1660 Ti at…

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,…

Metro Exodus PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

Once upon a time, there was an old saying in PC gaming spheres: 'But will it run Crysis?' Then the apocalypse happened, and civilisation retreated to the dark tunnels of its underground tube system, the phrase becoming lost and morphed in the intervening years. Now we say in hushed, hallowed tones, 'But will it run Metro?' The toughest of tough guys on PC these days,…

It doesn't seem like five minutes since we were last in Hope County, punching bears in the face and losing our minds to bliss-fuelled nightmare cults, but here we are again with Far Cry New Dawn, where hot pink is the new post-apocalyptic beige. Its predecessor, Far Cry 5, wasn't too much of a faff to get running on PC, but a lot's changed since…

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…

Radeon VII vs RTX 2080: AMD and Nvidia go head to head

AMD's Radeon 7 (or Radeon VII to give it its proper, official styling) is finally here. Not only is it the world's first 7nm gaming card, but it's also the first consumer GPU to come stacked with a whopping 16GB of memory - that's double what AMD stuck on their previous top-end card, the Radeon RX Vega 64, and 5GB more than what you'll find…

Nvidia BFGD: Everything we know about their Big Format Gaming Displays, including price, specs and release date

Nvidia's BFGDs (or Big Format Gaming Displays, to you and me) are no longer going to be called BFGDs. Instead, as of January 2019, these massive 65in gaming displays are now part of Nvidia's wider G-Sync Ultimate family, which also includes their significantly smaller (but just as pricey) G-Sync HDR monitors such as the 27in Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ. Why the…
