Gears 5 Single Player Campaign Review

Gears 5 has the longest and most ambitious campaign that Gears of War has ever done and, for the most part, that ambition pays off. In a series first, the story focuses on a female character, putting the player in a woman's shoes for the majority of the game.

How 3D Game Rendering Works, A Deeper Dive: Rasterization and Ray Tracing

In this second part of our deeper look at 3D game rendering, we'll be focusing what happens to the 3D world after all of the vertex processing has finished. We'll need to dust off our math textbooks again, grapple with the geometry of frustums, and ponder the puzzle of perspectives. We'll also take a quick dive into the physics of ray tracing, lighting and materials -- excellent!

AMD Navi vs. Nvidia Turing: An Architecture Comparison

You've followed the rumors and ignored the hype; you waited for the reviews and finally slapped down your dollars and walked away with one of the latest graphics cards from AMD or Nvidia. Inside these, lies a large graphics processor, packed with billions of transistors, all running at clock speeds unthinkable a decade ago. Welcome to our architectural comparison of the newest GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Review

I am generally suspicious of games that people say are "better with friends," simply because most things are. Wolfenstein: Youngblood isn't really just better with friends; it requires them. That's not a ding against Youngblood. The game has always been positioned as a cooperative experience. It's a co-op shooter. To criticize it for not being something other than that is unreasonable.

Testing an OLED Laptop Display: It's Pretty Amazing

Today we're testing a monitor, but it's not the usual sort of monitor review. Rather, we're looking at a laptop display because it's super interesting - it's one of the few OLED laptop screens going around, and from testing this display we can learn a lot about how OLED might be suited to PC displays and how it compares to the LCD panels we've been using for a while now.
