This DIY 4090 glass table build sees beauty meet the beast

Audio player loading… I’m a big fan of teeny tiny mini-ITX builds (opens in new tab) that hide away your PC, but I also adore a loud and proud RGBehemoth (opens in new tab). The choice between minimalistic style vs bright lights and displayed power is one of the hardest to make, and finding middle ground is sort of besides the point. Or that’s what I thought, but it turns out there are some masters of the middle ground out there, and one such build is this simply beautiful glass desk feature.Kumag1989 posted their glorious new build on the Nvidia…

Relax and unwind with this stress-free city builder sandbox

Audio player loading… City builders typically present you with goals and challenges like balancing your budget, controlling your pollution levels, managing your resources, and keeping your citizens happy (or in the case of survival city builders, keeping them from dying horribly). But sometimes you just want to build for the sake of building without worrying about traffic or logistics or how much things will cost or what bonus a house will get from a nearby park. Sometimes you just want a sandbox city builder with no restrictions, objectives, or headaches.For times like those, there’s a city builder headed your way that…

Samsung’s GDDR6W Doubles Performance and Capacity

Samsung has introduced (opens in new tab) its all-new type of GDDR6 memory that doubles the DRAM package’s capacity and increases interface width to double its peak bandwidth. Samsung’s GDDR6W chips use traditional BGA packaging and can be used for mainstream applications like the best graphics cards.Contemporary GDDR6 and GDDR6X chips integrate one DRAM device with a 32-bit interface. By contrast, a GDDR6W chip packs two DRAM devices featuring and therefore features two 32-bit interfaces, thus doubling capacity (from 16Gb to 32Gb per chip) as well as interface width (from 32-bits to 64 bits). To do so, Samsung’s GDDR6W chips use the company’s…

Levitation is a fantastic Half-Life: Alyx mod that apes Valve’s style almost too well

Last week saw the long-awaited release of Levitation (opens in new tab), an expansion-style mod for Half-Life Alyx. Developed over the past two years by solo mapper Shawn ‘FMPONE’ Snelling, Levitation aims to match Valve’s exceptionally detailed mapping style and deliver around three hours of additional running and gunning through City 17’s crumbling streets. Despite a couple rough edges, I think it nails it, but still leaves me with some complex feelings.Levitation picks up with Alyx shortly after the main game’s end, pushing the young freedom fighter back into the streets of City 17 on another mission for the resistance,…

Galax Boasts of 40% Overclock for GeForce RTX 4080 World Record

Galax has taken to Twitter to boast of a new overclocking world record, achieved using one of its newest graphics cards. The Galax OC team turned their attention to the GeForce RTX 4080 and achieved a GPU clock of 3,615 MHz, which is claimed to be 40% faster than stock boost clocks. An ‘HOF’ (Hall of Fame) edition card wasn’t used for this terrific feat, as there’s no such RTX 4080 SKU at this time. Instead, the OC team used a more ‘budget’ Galax RTX 4080 Serious Gamer (SG) 1-Click OC edition.(Image credit: Galax)The source post is sadly lacking in…

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Battle Stadium has one fundamental issue

The RNG seed is the same for every battle… Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has plenty of issues, mainly in the realm of performance. We’ve witnessed Pokemon fall through the floor in battle, NPCs that function at around 5FPS, and a host of other amusing glitches and bugs. It’s not great, but with the gameplay throughout Scarlet and Violet being among some of the best we’ve seen in recent years, these performance issues are easy enough to brush off when you’re having a good time. Which of the adorable Paldean starters did you choose? That said, players who have spent time…

SSD Prices Crash to All-Time Lows for Cyber Monday, Deals Abound (Updated)

This year’s Black Friday found some of the best deals we’ve ever seen on high-performance NVMe SSDs, but now we’re headed into Cyber Monday and expect the existing deals to get even better. That’s because a severe SSD oversupply has made it the perfect time to upgrade to an SSD or simply add more storage to your rig. Pricing for high-performance NVMe SSDs has now dipped to as low as 5 cents per GB, so we’ve found multiple 1TB SSDs for ~$60. That’s unheard-of low pricing that matches or beats the price of SATA SSDs, which have long reigned as…

This external cooler is as big as a PC

Audio player loading… Having an absolute beast of a PC is all well and good, until you need to keep it cool. There’s a price to pay for all that power, and often that price comes in the form of heat. In fact, power and heat are synonymous thanks to the laws of physics, and this will unfortunately always be the downfall of overclocking enthusiasts. As much as they like to produce heat, the sensitive components in your PC can only handle so much of it. Keeping a PC cool is serious business for the health and longevity of any…

How does Warhammer 40K: Darktide compare to Vermintide 2?

The PC Gamer team must’ve collectively slain at least 50,000 poxwalkers by now. My Ogryn’s big hands are messy, but once I start swinging his giant combat knife around, it’s hard to stop. We’ve been playing a whole lot of Warhammer 40K: Darktide during its pre-order beta, which ends with the game’s full launch on November 30. And we’ve been having a grand time—but that was to be expected from the follow-up to Vermintide 2, which we praised for its “stellar combat and level design.” Vermintide 2 got even better over the four years Fatshark supported it, through both free and…
