Most high-end graphics cards come with decent air coolers but that’s certainly not a given. In addition to being overly loud, some can become overwhelmed under intense, extended loads which can lead to throttling, instability and even shortened lifespans.
Since our initial review we've been looking at Ryzen from a few different angles. But there's a rumor going around that Ryzen's gaming performance is better than we think... if you use a Radeon GPU. Curious to see if there is any truth to the story, we put together a test designed to eliminate GPU bottlenecks and see what happens.
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. We'll of course be looking at the PC version to see what sort of hardware it takes to power this new triple-A title.
Back in their heyday, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and Radeon R9 Fury X were highly desirable graphics cards. Today in a post-Pascal world, the Fury X can be found for $300 to $400, while the GTX 980 Ti is only available via second-hand deals for around $300. At those prices these may still be a worthwhile investment. Let's find out.
AMD's upcoming Vega GPUs are coming soon, with details set to be revealed during CES, a new official countdown website is telling us exactly when the Vega architecture preview is taking place. The latest rumors suggest that Vega 10 will compete with the GeForce GTX 1080 and is scheduled for release Q1/2017.
#ThrowbackThursday With the release of Pascal the time has come to revisit history and see how 6 generations of Nvidia GeForce graphics cards compare. From Fermi-based GTX 480 to today's flagship, the GTX 1080, how much faster do you think today's cards are?
