Developed by BioWare and published by EA, Mass Effect: Andromeda vows to be bigger and more beautiful than prior releases. Although initial impressions indicate that the game delivers on some of those promises, we're not here to review the game but to test its PC performance so you know how it'll run on your hardware at home.
Nvidia's Pascal architecture marked a new milestone for PC graphics last year, with graphics chips that were considerably faster and more efficient, could comfortably run 4K games, and more. Almost a year later, we are getting Titan levels of performance for less.
Ubisoft's new action fighting game 'For Honor' puts you in control of medieval-styled knights, vikings and samurai, each with four classes that can be played through the single player campaign and five online modes.

Featuring frantic combat and fluid mechanics, Titanfall 2 looks amazing -- assuming you have the horsepower to pull it off -- which is precisely why we're here: to see exactly what kind of hardware you'll need to experience this game in all of its glory at 1080p, 1440p and 4K.
It isn't often that we see Nvidia being so aggressive in the entry-level segment and historically they've seemed happy to let AMD take the hit on margins here. Driving the sub-$150 GeForce GTX 1050 is the newly developed GP107 GPU that is more powerful than anything we've tested before on this price range.
Battlefield 1 marks the fifteenth installment to EA's multiplayer military shooter franchise. The BF1 beta made a strong first impression with great graphics that weren't overly demanding.
