Ray Tracing Slideshow: DXR on Nvidia
     Sun, Apr 21 2019 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During this year's GDC, Nvidia announced that GTX graphics cards would be getting basic ray tracing support with a driver update. For putting together this test we took the most powerful Pascal GPU we had on hand - the Nvidia Titan X - and pitted it against Nvidia's RTX line-up in the three games that support ray tracing thus far.

     Sun, Apr 21 2019 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the aesthetics are an important consideration in today’s market, especially if the device is to take pride of place on your desk, but the performance must also be up to scratch; Netgear offers the SX10 with 10 Gigabit ethernet ports, of which two are capable of 1, 2.5, 5 or 10Gbps with aggregation on those two ports for up to 20Gbps if you absolutely require the highest bandwidth in your network.

Ewin Racing Flash gaming chair review
     Sun, Apr 14 2019 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most people reading this will likely be in front of the screen many hours a week (and likely even multiple hours every day) so it's a good idea to invest in a decent chair to complete your gaming setup. Besides higher comfort, more functionality and a better look, gaming chairs like the one we'll discuss in this review will likely stand wear-and-tear better than the el cheapo alternatives.

covering The Division 2.
     Fri, Apr 12 2019 | 6:33P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In 2016 Ubisoft released Tom Clancy's The Division, a third-person shooter set in New York City, after a successful biological attack. While I have played this game, I never got around to reviewing it, but I have had the time for The Division 2 that takes us to Washington DC. The game actually starts with your Division agent in New York City, but a distress call from the capitol has you sent to do whatever you can to help. You find the White House, serving as the Division's base of operations, is under assault and practically the entire city is under siege from one group or another. By aiding settlements, capturing control points, and completing missions you will retake the city for the people, and bring the nightmare closer to its end."

Razer Goliathus Control & Speed
     Fri, Apr 12 2019 | 6:30P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Control or Speed? That's the question. Razer delivers both with a single product group: the well-renown Goliathus, which is available in two surface types, four print designs, and four different sizes. It also comes with a unique rubber backing and stitched edges for maximum durability.

SteelSeries Stratus Duo Gamepad Review
     Thu, Apr 11 2019 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Thanks to the dual-interface and internal rechargeable battery, you can go ahead and game in no time! We have tried quite a bit of games with it, including Dead or Alive 6 and Mortal Kombat XL. The controller is very responsive and feels comfortable thanks to its ergonomic shape; while we are not fans of playing games on such small screens like smartphones do have, we have paired the controller on our Android-based 4K Sony TV and ran games via Steam Link. Despite the Bluetooth connection, the extra lag this type of connection does introduce was barely noticeable and we were happy to game on a larger screen instead of staying in front of our desk."

     Sat, Mar 30 2019 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, Eidos released their long awaited RTX and DLSS patch for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Raytracing in the game helps to improve the quality and realism of shadows. We took a close look at image quality and measure the performance impact using the complete GeForce RTX lineup.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: A Ray
     Fri, Mar 29 2019 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Critically-acclaimed game Shadow of the Tomb Raider has been updated to receive support for both DirectX ray tracing shadows and Nvidia's DLSS upscaling technology. It's been seven months since ray tracing was shown off in this title and a good six months since the game was released, but hey, the feature was added in eventually and it's a very good game, we must add.

Metro Exodus Performance Analysis
     Thu, Mar 28 2019 | 2:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"By now my review of Metro Exodus has been out for a bit, as has the game, which means patches and updates for the game and drivers have been released as well. Seems like a good time to go through the different graphics cards I have at my disposal and put the test system I built to use. Actually I have put it to use to collect performance data for multiple games, with this just being the first I am writing up."

ASRock Phantom Gaming Alliance System Build (8700K + RX 580)
     Mon, Mar 25 2019 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASRock has recently created the Phantom Gaming Alliance brand as a way to help various manufacturers fine tune their products. By doing so, they can guarantee compatibility, reliability, and performance. This should allow them to better deliver a top of the line gaming experience to all users, and in this regard, I can say they exceeded my expectations considering the system's more entry-level focus.

ROCCAT Vulcan 120 AIMO Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sat, Mar 23 2019 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last time we looked at a ROCCAT keyboard, we were quite impressed with the Suora FX. So when we had the chance to take a look at the Vulcan 120 AIMO, we were eagerly anticipating its arrival. Packed with RGB goodness, the Vulcan 120 AIMO is a full-sized, 104-key specimen. So far it sounds like a pretty standard keyboard, but the Vulcan series is actually ROCCAT’s first keyboard to use their own “Titan” switches, which were designed from the ground up for gamers. If you are in the market for a new mechanical gaming keyboard, follow along as we take a look at the ROCCAT Vulcan 120 AIMO."
