Feature: Graphics cards go to war

Total War: Three Kingdoms graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

Playing a Total War game has always been a bit of an uphill battle on PC. With their detailed maps and densely-populated armies, they're some of the most graphically-intensive games around today - and if you've read any of the graphics card reviews I've done here at RPS, you'll know that Total War: Warhammer II is one of the regular games I use for benchmarking.…

Feature: Thumbs up for Shadow of the Tomb Raider (sort of)

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…

Rage 2 graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

Welcome back to the wasteland, you raving bunch of lunatics, because today's the day that Rage 2 finally blasts its way onto PC. Filled to the brim with tongue-waggling goons and mohawked, tattooed hoodlums with very itchy trigger fingers, the successor to id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic shooter is now bigger and boomier than ever, thanks in no small part to their collaboration with Just Cause…

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…

Feature: Which graphics card should you buy?

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…

Acer Predator Helios 500 review: GTX 1070 vs Vega 56

Take a look at the specs of any of today's gaming laptops and there's a 99.9% chance it's got an Intel CPU and Nvidia graphics chip inside it. That's mostly because AMD haven't really bothered with gaming laptops for the last couple of years, but that's slowly starting to change. Case in point: Acer's Predator Helios 500 laptop, which is available in both AMD and…

The pair of new additions are both Asus monitors - the 25in 1920x1080 VG258 and 27in 1920x1080 VG278QR - taking the total number of adaptive sync / AMD FreeSync screens that can offer a watered-down version of Nvidia's own variable refresh rate G-Sync tech without falling to pieces to seventeen.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is finally a thing that exists, and what a neat thing it is, too.
