Today we're discussing quad-core processors, namely how relevant they are in 2019. The last time we covered this specific topic was back in 2017, so this article means to explore if these budget quad-cores are worth buying for gamers, or are they dead on arrival.
It's time for our final look into Metro Exodus, exploring the game's DLSS implementation which is exclusive to GeForce RTX graphics cards. We've been covering both ray tracing and DLSS closely, testing where it makes sense and following up as patches are released. As one of the key features on Nvidia's flagship RTX graphics card, the discussion is not only relevant but necessary.
We're following up to our GeForce GTX 1660 Ti review with an even more ample 33 game benchmark test. The day-one review looked at more recent games such as Resident Evil 2, Metro Exodus, Apex Legends, and many others. Now we're keen to see how the 1660 Ti stacks up in a much wider range of games.
Today we are reviewing the Gigabyte Aero 15 X9, the first Nvidia RTX laptop we tested and used for our RTX 2070 Max-Q feature earlier this month. It's a cool gaming laptop, pretty similar to the Aero 15X v8 we looked at last year, but with a few upgrades that we'll walk you through here.
Nvidia's latest attempt to excite gamers arrives in the form of a new mid-range GPU with no RTX features on board. The new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti comes as no surprise as it's been widely rumored for some time: a cut down Turing GPU that trims off the fat and offers better value for less than $300.
Nvidia's deep learning super sampling, or DLSS, is one of the highly anticipated features present on RTX graphics cards. This month DLSS finally made its way to both Battlefield V and Metro Exodus, and as is the usual case for us, we'll be going through a full visual and performance breakdown in this article.
