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…

Nvidia open-source PhysX to help AI and robotics research

As if trying to grow superhumanly intelligent minds inside grey boxes and wires weren't dangerous enough, now people want to teach them that the only physical impact they can have on the world is being an arsehole knocking around anything not nailed down. Nvidia have open-sourced their PhysX, physics simulation engine, with the primary goal of assisting research into AI, robotics, and self-driving cars. Look…

Whaddup hack3rs, Black Friday is officially done and Cyber Monday has begun, which can only mean one thing and that is to give your PC a new graphics er... gun?

A 4GB GTX 1050Ti for $130, you say? This $150 RX 570 is arguably a much better deal

It's finally here, the big day itself, Black Friday. Hooray! And to kick off proceedings, I've just found a brand-new 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics card deal for you. It's a US one only, I'm afraid, but the tiddly EVGA GeForce GTX 1050Ti Gaming is going for just $150 right now (that's $5 less than our previous best graphics card deal, the $155 Asus…

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…

Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ review: 4K HDR has arrived, but good grief, HOW MUCH?

When I saw the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ for the first time back in May earlier this year, I thought the future of monitors had finally arrived. After more than a year of waiting, false starts and simply not being able to have as much fun as our console box friends with their fancy pants 4K HDR TVs, both the PG27UQ and the Acer Predator…

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 Nvidia's new 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 games to really show what their magic Turing GPUs are made of, it's left both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti feeling like one big shoulder shrug…

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

As we reach the halfway point of big blockbuster season, you may be starting to feel like your graphics cards is in need of an upgrade. After all, when you're chucking bigger, shinier and more demanding games at it, what was once a mighty card for 60fps at one resolution can suddenly start to feel a bit old and decrepit when it's faced with something…

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 2080Ti 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 2080Ti is by far and away the best…

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.

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…

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…

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…

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 [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s 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.

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…

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 [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] I've…

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 [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] of all time? At the moment, it's hard to say - outside of a couple of demos, there…

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…
