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 Nvidia's new Turing GPU is 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.

Overclockers Kinetic Z1 review: 1080p gaming for just £600

If the thought of building your own PC fills you with dread, then buying one pre-built can save you a lot of time and hassle. You don't even have to spend that much to get a good one, either, as this £600 Kinetic Z1 from UK system builder Overclockers UK is perfectly tuned for 1080p gaming straight out of the box. I've got the basic…

Nvidia’s RTX 2080 fails to make a dent on Steam’s September hardware charts

Valve released a fresh batch of Steam hardware stats last night, detailing the most popular components used by participating survey filler-inners. Surprise, surprise, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti are nowhere to be seen on its graphics card list. Instead, PC peeps seem to be doubling down on cards at the other end of the price spectrum, with the GTX 1060, GTX 1050Ti and…

Best graphics card 2018: Top GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

Autumn is always a trying time for today's best graphics cards. 'Tis the season for big games with even bigger graphics budgets, and what was once a mighty card for 60fps at one resolution can suddenly start to feel a bit creaky and long in the tooth - especially now most of Nvidia's new Turing RTX cards have arrived on scene, which, for the most…

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 best…

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: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC continues to be a bit of a mess these days, but provided you haven't been put off by the astronomical prices of the best gaming monitors for HDR or, indeed, the ongoing debacle surrounding Windows 10 support for it, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get an HDR compatible graphics card. Below, you'll find a complete list…

Feature: Now updated with even more ray-tracing and DLSS-confirmed games

Here’s a list of every game that’s going to look amazing on the Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080Ti

Last week, the first of three shiny new Nvidia Turing cards finally pitched up on shop shelves - the RTX 2080. You can head over to my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review to find out more on what I thought of the card as a general pixel pusher, but the long and short of it is that you're probably not looking at much of a…

Feature: Pumping it to the max, literally

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review-in-progress: 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 best graphics card I've ever tested,…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review-in-progress: 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 things Nvidia's Turing cards can do, but is it really the best graphics card of all time? At the moment, it's hard to say - outside of a couple of demos, there aren't actually…

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…

Shadow of the Tomb Raider graphics performance: How to get the best settings for your PC

The latest Tomb Raider reboot games have always been big technical showcases on PC, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider is no exception. After a slightly rocky pre-release build that's thankfully been ironed out in time for today's release (have a read of John's newly updated Shadow of the Tomb Raider review if you're still unsure), this is easily one of the most demanding games…

Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti: Turing’s best features explained

After all the rush and excitement of Nvidia's Turing launch at Gamescom, there's now less than a week to go before those shiny new GeForce RTX graphics cards are out in the wild. On September 20 and 27, both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti will replace the GTX 1080 and GTX 1080Ti as Nvidia's top dog bestest best graphics cards - and the great…

Feature: The BFG of gaming monitors

Nvidia’s BFGD: Everything we know so far about their Big Format Gaming Displays

It's been a little quiet on the Nvidia BFGD (or Big Format Gaming Display, to you and me) front lately, probably because said graphics giant wants to get the launch of their shiny new Turing RTX 2080 graphics cards out of the way first because they're probably the only GPUs in existence that will actually be able to make full use of their giant 4K,…

HP’s Omen X 65 Nvidia BFGD now has an added soundbar, but no one knows if it’s permanent

It's been quite some time since we heard anything concrete about what's going on with Nvidia's BFGDs (or Big Format Gaming Displays for the acronym-averse). After their initial unveiling back in January 2018 at Las Vegas tech shindig CES, there's been a big old pile of nothing regarding these giant 65in G-Sync HDR monitors, and we still don't know when they're actually coming out, how…

Metro Exodus dev talks Nvidia RTX: How ray tracing will speed up development and make life harder for monsters

Nvidia's new Turing RTX 2080 graphics cards have been the talk of this year's Gamescom for hardware nuts, and with good reason. While their jump in raw performance is still a little vague, at least in terms of RTX 2080 vs GTX 1080 speeds, the new techie bits they're ushering in such as Nvidia's fancy ray tracing light gubbins (which makes shadows and reflections look…

Metro Exodus targeting 60fps 1080p for new Nvidia RTX features

Ever since Nvidia officially unveiled their Turing RTX 2080 cards on Monday, we've heard nothing but 'ray tracing this' and 'Giga Rays that' - so much so that I can probably now recite 3573 things about their fancy pants lighting equations off by heart. What I can't say 3753 things about is their frame rate performance, mostly because Nvidia have only revealed a small handful…

Nvidia’s first Turing GPUs will be professional Quadro RTX cards

Well, would you look at that? Nvidia have just lifted the lid on their brand-new Turing graphics cards - and ghee whiz do they look powerful. Don't get too excited just yet, though, as the only cards Nvidia announced last night at computer graphics and animation conference Siggraph are (yep, you guessed it) all professional Quadro RTX models: the Quadro RTX 8000, Quadro RTX 6000…

Monster Hunter: World graphics performance: Carving up today’s best GPUs

Dragon coat-making sim Monster Hunter: World is finally here, and man alive is it a beastly PC port. Things were looking a bit dicey when I first got my hands on the game a couple of weeks ago, with GPU performance hitches aplenty even on some of today's best graphics cards, as well as strained CPU problems and frequent crashes. Thankfully, all those kinks have…
