Home • PC Game Hardware • And which one should you buy? Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 7th November 2019 / 3:50PM Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1660 Super is in a bit of an odd place right now. It’s a teensy bit faster than its non-Super sibling, the regular old GTX 1660, but not quite fast enough to really a proper impact on your minute-to-minute gaming performance. But given the GTX 1660 was already pretty close in speed to its more expensive cousin, the GTX 1660 Ti, is the GTX 1660 Super actually a way of getting Ti levels of power on the cheap? I’ve made some lovely bar graphs to find out. Nvidia GTX 1660 Super vs 1660 Ti: How we test Just like my GTX 1660 vs 1660 Super comparison piece, the main thing I want to find out here is how well each card runs at a variety of resolutions and graphics settings. Also like that particular test, I’ve only focused on 1920×1080 and 2560×1440 resolutions this time round, because, let’s … [Read more...] about Nvidia GTX 1660 Super vs 1660 Ti: Which is best?

Home • PC Game Hardware • PC Game News • 9 Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 29th November 2019 / 10:04AM If you’ve been holding out for a really great Black Friday SSD deal this week, then your patience is about to pay off. For the next 14-odd hours, the 1TB Samsung 860 Evo is down to a record-low £95 in the UK, which is a saving of around £40 compared to its price for the last six months. The Samsung 860 Evo has been our best gaming SSD recommendation for absolutely ages, and is easily the fastest and best 2.5in SATA SSD in its class. It’s also the first proper deal I’ve seen on the 1TB version this week. Over the last couple of days, it’s mainly been the 500GB model that’s had a Black Friday deal on it, which is still at an all-time low of £59 at time of writing. However, given today’s big saving on the 1TB model, the 500GB model isn’t quite as enticing as it once was. That said, I should … [Read more...] about Samsung’s 1TB 860 Evo is Amazon’s Black Friday SSD deal of the day, now just £95
Home • PC Game Hardware • 30 Clash of the 4K titans Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 26th October 2018 / 6:00PM Despite costing an arm, a leg plus a couple of kidneys, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has quickly established itself as the 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 2080 Ti is by far and away the best single card solution for 4K perfection chasers. As with any graphics card purchase, however, the big problem facing prospective RTX 2080 Ti owners is which of the many thousands of this particular card is actually the best one to buy? To help shed a bit of light on the issue, I’ve been pitting a bunch of different RTX 2080 Tis against each other to see which one’s best, including MSI’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Duke OC, Zotac’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP! Edition and … [Read more...] about RTX 2080 Ti benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs MSI vs Zotac
Home • Esports • Guides • Fortnite • Death by a thousand shots Ollie Toms Guides Writer 4th February 2019 / 4:21PM Fortnite’s V7.30 Patch Notes delivered a stunning change to the SMG roster, vaulting the standard Submachine Gun and bringing back from the depths of history the Suppressed SMG. This weapon was considered by many to be one of the best guns in Fortnite prior to its removal back in Season 6, but how does it compare now to the Compact SMG and other weapons on offer? Our Fortnite SMG guide looks to answer this and many other questions. Below you’ll find everything you need to know about SMGs and their cousins the LMGs, where they stand compared to each other and other classes of weapon, and how to use the different types of SMG to the best of their – and your – ability.

Home • SimCity • 293 Serve Us, Service Nathan Grayson Contributor 7th March 2013 / 10:00PM Here’s an unpopular opinion: I think EA’s done a decent job with SimCity’s launch. Aha! It’s also a misleading opinion, because I’m definitely not referring to the part where servers gasped and puked and died under the immense strain of North America’s unquenchable entertainment lust, recently leading to halting of sales on Amazon, among other things. It’s what happened afterward that sort of impressed me. EA responded fairly quickly (especially by its usual standards), communicated clearly what was happening, apologized profusely, went through the five stages of grief, and offered refunds to some people (not all, perplexingly) who felt like the early meteor bombardment of issues wasn’t worth waiting out. As far as disaster control goes, I’m more than willing to concede that EA’s mostly Doing It Right. But … [Read more...] about SimCity Vs The People: Why Apologies Aren’t Enough
