We’re getting to that time now where both Nvidia and AMD have pretty much shown their hands for this generation. We’ve got the 1080 Ti waiting in the wings of course, along with AMD’s impending Vega, but for now we basically know the lay of the land in terms of the GTX 10 Series and AMD’s Radeon RX 400 graphics cards. With all that in mind we can begin making a confident decision on which graphics card to buy. [More]

Right now we’re on the brink of the dawn of Nvidia’s budget Pascal architecture card era. Come the 25th of October Nvidia’s new GTX 1050 Ti will be here in all it’s budget glory while its slightly lesser counterpart the GTX 1050 will be touching down anytime up to the 8th of November. Yet as with any new card release in recent years you can’t move for different GTX 1050 Ti variants from every manufacturer and their cousin, so it can get confusing deciding which is the graphics card for you. To simplify this process for you, we’ve trawled through all the variants so you can make an informed purchasing decision on day one, knowing which GTX 1050 Ti’s have the best performance off the mark.

In true Nintendo fashion the Nintendo Switch reveal said a whole lot but not quite enough. After its brief three-minute running time we were left with more questions than answers. Fortunately additional details have begun pouring out, including information on the Switch’s touch-screen, backwards compatibility, battery life, and just what that docking station does. [More]

Sony didn’t think to make any mention of it during the reveal last month, but the PlayStation 4 Pro will be coming with an extra gigabyte of memory. During testing it turned out the 8GB of GDDR5 memory in the standard PS4 wasn’t quite enough. An additional 1GB has been added in order to be used for non-gaming uses and application switching.

Over the last decade gaming has changed to an almost unrecognisable extent. Back in early 2006 we didn’t know what DLC meant. Season Passes were for sports teams. And just uttering the word micro-transactions would have sent us cross-eyed and made our heads hurt. [More]

With the release of the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 nearly upon us, on the 25th of October and anytime up until the 8th of November accordingly, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the shed loads of variants that the AIB (Add in Board) partners throw at us each release. It’s with this in mind that we’ve taken it upon ourselves to trawl through these cards for you, so you know which is the best type of card on day one of release. [More]

AMD has exceeded its own expectations for Q3 of this financial year thanks to record sales of semi-custom System on Chip (SoC) units and increased sales of dedicated graphics cards. Total revenue has jumped 23% year on year. It says something that I contemplated for a moment whether this was even newsworthy, such has AMD’s successful turnaround been in the last six months.

The impressive state of driver support across the board continued yesterday afternoon with the arrival of Nvidia’s new GeForce 365.57 Game Ready Driver. Much like AMD’s effort it’s a biggie this time around, packing in day one Game Ready optimisations for Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Civilization VI, Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope and Eagle Flight VR.

After years of falling prices, memory prices have actually started increasing abruptly. DDR4 RAM is the most affected, with some brands rising as much as 50% in price over the last six months. Take 16GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory for example. Back in June in could be had for as little as £60, not it'll cost you more than £90. So the price of memory has bottomed out and is now on the rise, but just what is the cause of this? [More]

Things aren't looking too great for GeForce graphics cards today. Fresh from issues with Micron GDDR5 memory on certain GTX 1070’s earlier today, it looks as if some users are experiencing serious issues with EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards. Affected Reddit users claim the video cards have a hardware fault which can lead to extreme overheating. One user even says his EVGA GTX 1070 FTW caught fire and he’s waiting for a replacement from EVGA. [More]

With Nvidia coming to market soon with the $139 GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, AMD has gone into full-blown battlestations mode. Not content with just standing by as Nvidia squeezes its bottom line at the low end, Team Red is apparently working on a cut-down version of its Radeon RX 470 to compete directly with it. [More]
