You've just bought a new gaming desktop, or a laptop for the office. Maybe you've upgraded your PC with a new CPU and motherboard. You might be into overclocking. But do you know exactly what you've got? How well is that PC actually working? We've compiled a list of 21 programs that are great for analyzing or benchmarking your devices.
It's time we get to explore something we've been eager to investigate since our day-one GeForce RTX 3080 review, and that's the weaker-than-expected resolution scaling of the new Ampere architecture.
We're starting to see more Wi-Fi 6 capable devices hit the market, so naturally, the big question is: should you upgrade? Today we are taking a look at how some of these systems perform compared to those from the previous generation.
With the launch of the new GeForce 30 series, PCI Express 4.0 performance has come up into the discussion. To find out exactly what we're talking about, we've taken a deeper look.
For today's article we'll be once again looking at many benchmark graphs filled with RTX 3080 data, though this one is going to be a little different. While we're benchmarking the new GeForce RTX 3080, it won't be the main focus of our attention but rather we'll be looking deeper into CPU performance.
Today's comparison uses brand new fresh data for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GTX 1080 Ti and GTX 980 Ti. We're currently in the process of updating all our GPU data in anticipation of Nvidia's soon to be released GeForce 30 series. So we thought, why not compare five years of flagship GeForce GPUs while we're at it?
Today we're benchmarking a cargo plane load of graphics cards in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. Visually the game is breathtaking and we'd say that we're looking at truly next generation stuff here. We've tested 28 graphics cards at 1080p, 1440p and 4K using Ultra and Medium quality presets.
Nvidia will introduce faster next-gen Ampere GPUs next month. That's exciting, but we've got a tough choice to make. The new graphics cards will support PCIe 4.0, but our GPU test system that was just upgraded to a Core i9-10900K, doesn't. Should we go Ryzen 9 instead?
In today's review we'll unravel the performance difference between Nvidia's desktop and laptop GPUs of the same name, covering all options from the GTX 1660 Ti up through to the RTX 2080 Super. Hopefully this will make it much clearer next time you're buying a new gaming system, knowing what level of performance you're getting.
Do you need to buy a Core i9 for gaming, and is a Core i3 sufficient for general desktop work? How about upgrading to a Core i5, how much faster is that? Our CPU reviews provide more than enough data to answer those questions, but this review will serve as a great reference for those wanting to compare Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 processors directly.
Every once in a while, a video game is made that becomes part of the industry's history. For PC gamers, there's one title that's almost legendary thanks to its incredible, ahead-of-its-time graphics and ability to grind PCs into single digit frame rates. Join us as we take a look back at Crysis and see what made it so special.
There are many third-gen Ryzen processors to pick from, but you can narrow the choices down easily and having an intended budget will help you quickly do that. It's also good to understand what kind of performance boost you'll get by going up a tier, or how much you'll be sacrificing by going down to save some money.
AMD's old-time favorite, the Ryzen 7 1700 seems to have aged rather well. Budget PC builders right now can choose between a Ryzen 3 3300X or a second hand R7 1700 for $130. The 3300X is a 4-core/8-thread CPU that enjoys all the advantages of the Zen 2 architecture, while the R7 1700 has twice as many cores, but older Zen ones. So which wins?
Today we're revisiting AMD's budget-oriented Ryzen 3 3300X. This Ryzen 3 CPU thoroughly impressed us when it launched two months ago and now we're taking a look back to see where it stands against the Ryzen 5 3600 and 2600.
Today we return to the realm of laptop graphics hardware to talk about Nvidia's refreshed line of GeForce GPUs. We've already looked at two of the new GPUs: the RTX 2070 Super Max-Q and RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, but alongside these Nvidia has also updated the rest of the series with spec improvements.
Following up to our recent CPU comparison in competitive titles using low quality settings, we're pitting the Ryzen 7 3700X and 10th-gen Core i5-10600K against the 2700X to see how the previous-gen Ryzen stacks up.
Today we're going to compare the Ryzen 7 3700X and Core i5-10600K in a number of games, but we'll be doing so with low or esports level of quality settings in games such as Fortnite, World of Tanks, Rocket League, and about half a dozen other competitive titles.
Take the computer know-how, the love of games, and the interest in components, and mix them all together. It's a perfect recipe for diving into benchmarking. In this article, we'll explain how you can use games to benchmark your PC and what you can do to analyze the results.
Today we're taking a look back at the mighty GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, the previous-gen Nvidia flagship that has become somewhat of an iconic GPU, and for good reason. We were impressed with what Nvidia managed to achieve at the time. The 1080 Ti was designed to enable a level of performance never seen before and it accomplished just that.
Today we'll be reviewing Intel's Core i7-10875H, the most interesting chip on their new 10th-gen Comet Lake H series. Aimed at high-end productivity and gaming laptops, we'll compare it against the Core i9-9880H, Core i7-9750H and AMD's new Ryzen 9 4900HS.
It's time to revisit the battle between two of the most popular current-gen GPUs, the Radeon RX 5700 XT and GeForce RTX 2060 Super, because, why not? We've actually been asked for an update, so we've gathered all-fresh data over the past few days using the latest drivers and game versions.
