Switching from a mechanical drive to a solid state drive is one of the most important upgrades you can make to your gaming PC - and with the release of new drives earlier this year and flash storage prices finally starting to drop significantly, now is the perfect time to pick up a new SSD. Before we get into the specific models we recommend, we should probably answer a simple question: why are SSDs worth their higher price per gigabyte over traditional hard disk drives? There are a few good reasons, but the most important for gamers is that with an SSD, game load times go way down. In fact, in our extensive testing of five different drives, we found that upgrading to an SSD - even a budget model - reduced game load times by up to 60 per cent compared to even modern, high-performance HDDs. For games that require frequent loading for new areas, like Skyrim and Fallout 4, or titles with very long initial load times, like Grand Theft Auto 5, using an SSD saves you a ton of time and … [Read more...] about Best SSD for gaming 2018: shorter loading times, smoother streaming
The best season of the year is ahead of us: Spider-Man PS4 launches his webs on September 7, Lara follows with Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Then comes FIFA 19, Battlefield 5, Black Ops 4, Forza Horizon 4, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2 - it’s going to be a hot fall, so we've gone on a quest to find the best 4K HDR TV possible for your budget. Ask a seasoned gamer what TV you should buy and the answer pretty much always is: OLED. Buy an LG OLED if you have the budget.

Picture a scene where you are deep underwater and the surrounding area is completely dark. There is no natural light coming from the moon, you are so deep in the ocean, the only light source is your flashlight. If you play on an older LCD panel, the black surrounding you won’t be black. It will have a touch of grey … [Read more...] about What is the best LG 4K TV for gaming? And should you buy OLED?
In 2007 fresh out of high school as a senior, if you would have asked me if I was excited for college, I would not be able to contain the emotion in my face. Hell yes I was excited. I had knew that I wanted to make games since the day I finished the Halo: Combat Evolved campaign. I knew that very day that I was destined to create experiences as magical as this one had been for me. Games were epic. They were the ultimate form of art. Sure I loved making music (used to be a rapper yo!), sure I loved programming, sure I loved storytelling. But games…games were all of the above. Games were my chance to create the ultimate expression of the fragments inside my head that wanted to badly to be understood. Games were everything great about every art form all wrapped into a single fun and interactive package. So the only choice for me was to go to school for game development. Here is my experience. It started out OK…err that’s what I told myself. The first 2 years, even … [Read more...] about Should You Go To College For Game Dev? Here’s My Experience.
Nvidia's surprise announcement and launch of the Titan V upped the ante for the fastest graphics card in the world. Former Titan cards cost $1,000, and the Titan X and Xp moved the target a bit further north to $1,199. With the Titan V, Nvidia goes for a completely different class of users, checking in at a breezy $2,999. Who could possibly need such a graphics card? Well, not gamers—or at least, not people who are only interested in playing games. We didn't make Nvidia's shortlist for an initial Titan V sample—"it's not for gaming" was the curt response—but Falcon Northwest came through with a drool-worthy PC that kicks practicality to the curb and goes all-in on style and performance. The latest version of the company's Tiki naturally includes the Titan V, but the luxurious hardware doesn't stop there. The potent totem includes Intel's fastest CPU for gaming, the Core i7-8700K, paired with 32GB of DDR4-3200 CL14 RAM, and then forget about storage bottlenecks with … [Read more...] about The $3K Titan V is the fastest graphics card, even though it’s not for gaming
