Is 6GB VRAM Enough for 1440p Gaming? Testing with Nvidia's RTX 2060

Today we're investigating claims that the new GeForce RTX 2060 is not a good buy because it only features 6GB VRAM capacity. The RTX 2060 offers performance similar to the GTX 1070 Ti, but that card packs an 8GB memory buffer, as did its non-Ti counterpart. In other words, the RTX 2060 is the fastest graphics card to ever to come with a 6GB memory buffer.

AMD Radeon RX 590 Crossfire and the State of Multi-GPU Technology

It always surprises us how often we get requests for Crossfire and SLI benchmarks. Despite flatout telling readers not to invest in either technology for years now, there still seems to be quite a lot of interest. Both AMD and Nvidia have made no secret about the fact they're pulling back on multi-GPU technology, but recently two RX 590 cards came our way and we thought, why not?

Battlefield V DXR Real-Time Ray Tracing Performance Tested

Real-time ray tracing is finally here and today we're exploring how it looks and performs in the first game to support it fully: Battlefield V. In this article we're not only benchmarking the three GeForce RTX cards across all the ray tracing presets in the game, but we've also got some great comparisons for you to show exactly the difference between RTX on and RTX off.

How We Test: CPU Gaming Benchmarks

#ThrowBackThursday This a topic that's often raised when we do our CPU gaming benchmarks. We perform a ton of CPU and GPU benchmarks tests throughout the year, a big portion of which are dedicated to gaming. The goal is to work out which CPU will offer you the most bang for your buck at a given price point, now and hopefully in the future.

AMD Threadripper 2970WX & 2920X Review: 12-core and 24-core CPUs for work

AMD is launching new 12 and 24-core 2nd-gen Threadripper parts known as the 2920X and 2970WX. Spec-wise the 12-core part is virtually identical to the 16-core part we saw in August, minus the obvious reduction in core count and the same is true when comparing the 24-core and 32-core parts. In our review we benchmark and check out the added value offered by these new CPUs.
