Home • PC Game Hardware • 28 Pumping it to the max, literally Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 19th September 2018 / 4:46PM 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, and offers a compelling upgrade over Nvidia’s previous 4K top dog, the GeForce GTX 1080Ti – and that’s before you start taking into account all the other new clever bits and bobs packed into each Nvidia RTX GPU that can potentially boost performance even further. If the idea of playing games at 4K at max settings on a single GPU is an appealing one to you, the RTX 2080Ti could well be the GPU for you. Much like my earlier Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review, what … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review: A true 4K monster card

Home • PC Game News • Starbound • 4 Nic Reuben Contributor 14th June 2019 / 3:49PM Starbound yesterday launched a new update, and it features bounty hunters with giant bananas for heads. The last bounty I hunted ended in a brutal massacre the likes of which that outback desert town had never seen. You thought I was going to make a cute joke about chocolate, didn’t you? Do not cross me, vagrant. Instead, take in a light spot of the trailer below: The main feature of the Bounty Hunter Update looks to be the titular hunting of bounties. Procedural quests allow players to hunt down criminal gangs across planets and solar systems. There’s new boss fights, quests, micro dungeons, and player promotions. There’s also new rare elemental monsters to capture and collect. Here are some names I like from the list: Poison Smoglin, Fire Oogler, Electric Quagmutt, Ice Ringram, and my new band name, Electric Skimbus. I … [Read more...] about Starbound adds bounty hunters with banana heads, rare new monsters
Home • Guides • 5 Dave Irwin Guides Writer 13th June 2019 / 1:42PM They just keep coming don’t they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn’t know about, as well as stuff that’s previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we’re doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we’d put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to appear at this year’s E3 show. With well over a hundred of them now in the books, the next year or so looks packed. Not going to lie, I’m beginning to regret doing this. If you would like to know when the conferences are, you can check out our E3 2019 streams guide – which will eventually have details on how you can watch each of the publisher’s conferences live. E3 2019 games – every game confirmed This guide to the games of E3 2019 will go over every game that … [Read more...] about E3 2019 games – every game confirmed
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?
