The graphics processors inside the two products shown below have the same name: RTX 3070. One is destined for desktop PCs, and the other is a gaming laptop. But they don't even get close to delivering the same performance. What's going on here? Is this a problem? Let's get benchmarking!
Screen tear or input lag? To vsync or not to vsync? For the longest time, this was an either-or question in the PC gaming space. You could either have a tear-free, properly frame-paced image or low input latency. But here's a trick to try.
In our last installment of the history of the modern graphics processor, we had reached a point where the market consisted of just three competitors: AMD, Intel, and Nvidia. However, in the following years, graphics processors became one of the largest, most complex, and most expensive components that could be found in almost any computing device.
In this review we want to see how the Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X compare in gaming performance using the RTX 3090, RTX 3070, 5700 XT and 5600 XT, using various graphics quality presets at 1080p, 1440p and 4K.
This latest GPU shootout sees the faster and more expensive GeForce RTX 3080 pitted against the Radeon RX 6800 XT. We have a long list of games to be tested covering the 1080p, 1440p and 4K resolutions.
#ThrowBackThursday 3D graphics turned a dull PC industry into a light and magic show after generations of innovative endeavour. Here's our extensive look at the history of the GPU, from the early days of 3D, to game-changing hardware and the industry's consolidation.
