The Asus 500Hz monitor is proof that science has gone too far

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should. Asus has announced a new ultra-fast monitor today at Computex 2022. The new 500Hz monitor was actually unveiled by Nvidia during its show keynote. The Asus ROG Swift 500Hz gaming monitor is its name, and it’s the first monitor to reach the staggering 500Hz refresh rate. Naturally, this can only be achieved through the tried-and-true TN panel technology. Nvidia claims this is a new form of TN it’s calling E-TN (esports TN). TN is a very mature tech, which makes it…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti review: the graphics card I want, but shouldn’t

You could fairly think of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti as a big, stump-necked brute of a graphics card. What better characterisation for the latest tippity-top-of-the-line GPU from Nvidia, who’ve already produced the best graphics card for 4K in the RTX 3080? But rather than be overwhelmed by its power, I personally feel more like the RTX 3090 Ti is trying to trick, tempt and seduce me, Old Testament-style. “Recommend meeeee” it whispers, coasting through another maximum settings benchmark. “Tell evvvvvvveryone these frame rates are totally worth £1879.” But I can’t. Sorry. While I am a sucker for go-faster…

Get an MSI RTX 3080 Ti OC for £1054 with code at CCL

Looking for a GPU? The RTX 3080 Ti offers comparable performance to the RTX 3090 while costing far less, and today there’s an OC model available at the card’s UK RRP. It’s an Ventus 3X OC model from MSI, with a hefty triple-slot thermal solution that ought to keep the card cool and quiet even running at its factory overclocked 1695MHz. To get the discounted price, use code SAVE75 to knock a healthy £75 off the list price. That brings it down to £1054, just £5 more than the UK RRP and a great deal for an OC model. You…

The cheapest Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti in the UK is this £649 Zotac model

The RTX 3070 Ti is a great mid-range to high-end GPU, with excellent performance in rasterised games plus DLSS and RT support, but it’s been hard to find at a good price if you haven’t lucked out with a Founders Edition restock. Prices for third-party cards are slowly falling, and now have reached within £100 of the £549 UK RRP – an important milestone for GPUs that cost £1000 or more at the beginning of the year. The cheapest RTX 3070 Ti model we’ve found is a Zotac RTX 3070 Ti Trinity at Ebuyer, who are asking £649 with a…

Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti and 3090 Ti Founders Edition cards are in stock in the UK at RRP

Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti and 3090 Ti graphics cards aren only a bit faster than the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 that came before them, but they are proving much easier to get ahold of at their (admittedly high) recommended retail prices. Today, Scan’s selling both models at RRP, with the 3080 Ti costing £1049 and the 3090 Ti costing a cool £830 more than that. These are both high-end cards with a price tag to match, but the Founders Edition models are generally the cheapest you’ll find – so we thought you should know about this unprecedented stock situation!…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 review: DLSS for less

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 might be the first GPU to benefit, in a roundabout way, from the bonkers price gouging that’s been spoiling the fun of graphics cards for nearly two years. In normal times, it wouldn’t make much sense to buy this £239 / $249 GPU – not because it’s the lowest in the RTX range, but because the much more powerful RTX 3060 would only cost a few notes more. And yet, these are not normal times. While the MSI GeForce RTX 3050 Gaming X 8G model I’ve tested has already ballooned to £380 / $450, this…

Cyberpunk 2077 ending support for Windows 7 and GeForce 700 cards

The huge new patch released for Cyberpunk 2077 yesterday is mostly a good’un, bringing the dystopian RPG closer to the game it should have been 14 months ago. But Update 1.5 might be bad news for players with older PCs. CD Projekt Red have officially ended support for Nvidia GeForce 700 series graphics cards, and announced plans to end Windows 7 support later this year. This isn’t immediately bad, but the game could end up breaking on affected computers in the future. Read more

The Nvidia RTX 3050 is a solid new entry-level ray tracing and DLSS GPU – if you can get it at the right price

It’s a weird time for GPUs, but the Nvidia RTX 3050 is a beacon of good-quality craft… if you can find one. It’s a weird, difficult time to review GPUs. The PC graphics market has been in overdrive for the last couple of years for several reasons. For one, people have been locked down, stuck indoors with disposable income unused – so where better to spend it than on a PC upgrade? But then there’s the stupid side of things – all this crypto mining BS – plus the impacts of the pandemic on the supply chain and production. As…

The best graphics card deals on Nvidia and AMD GPUs

When it comes to PC upgrades, no single change can give you a bigger performance jump than a new GPU – so availing yourself of one of the best graphics cards deals is just good sense. Especially if you want to make the switch from 1080p to 4K gaming, or to start enabling pretty ray tracing effects in your games. Read more

What is Resizable BAR, and should you use it?

Nvidia’s updated Image Scaling isn’t the only way in which you can – on paper – give your graphics card performance a free boot up the backside. Earlier this year, Nvidia began enabling Resizable BAR on their GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs and laptops, with the promise of faster frame rates for no additional expense. But what exactly is Resizable BAR, and assuming you have compatible hardware, is it really worth switching on? Read more

The Nvidia RTX 30 series, one year on: should you upgrade?

Even if they don’t recall the exact date, plenty of gaming PC owners will remember what they were doing on September 17th 2020. They, and I, were staring at a black-and-green storefront, mashing F5 until a “Notify me” button changed to read “Out of stock”. This was the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 launch, and what initially looked like a one-off failure of Nvidia’s anti-bot measures ended up heralding the worst year in memory to upgrade a graphics card.
