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 has launched a new hotfix driver with support for Conan Exiles Beta and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands Beta. Besides optimizations for these two titles, the new driver fixes several issues in other games like Diablo III, FIFA17, Forza Horizon 3 and Watch Dogs 2. The complete changelog and download links are available here.
AMD's latest Radeon Crimson drivers (17.1.1) greet the well awaited Resident Evil 7: Biohazard with zero-day support. The new driver also fixes crashes in Dishonored 2 on certain Radeon R9 380 configurations. More fixes to known issues can be found in the full release notes.
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.
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.
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. After testing 41 graphics cards and 20 processors in our Gears of War 4 benchmark feature, we wanted to do the same for Battlefield 1 and for the most part we succeeded.
Gears of War 4 is DX12-only, meaning the game has been built from the ground up to leverage this low-level API on both the PC and Xbox versions. In an effort to figure out performance, we've thrown not 20 or even 30 graphics cards at this title, but 40 -- 41 to be exact.
Looking to upgrade or buy a new GPU? Don't mind all that testing, marginal fps gains depending on the game you play, power consumption figures, or overclocking potential. You want a simple question answered. Given a certain budget, which graphics card should you buy? Fret no more.
With the wait for next-gen AMD Vega parts becoming longer than anticipated, and considering we do their latest $200-250 offering on hand, the Radeon RX 480, we're adding a new test to our 'Then and Now' series, comparing six generations of mainstream Radeon graphics cards.
