Home • PC Game Hardware • A 4K titan of industry? James Archer Contributor 30th January 2018 / 1:30PM The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070Ti is a bit of a funny old thing. I’ve spent countless hours trying, and failing, to determine where this 4K-bothering card sits in Nvidia’s overall strategy, and while its position in the Nvidia hierarchy is obvious – between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 – it seems to be more of a toned-down 1080 than a souped-up 1070. It’s got hundreds more cores than the GTX 1070 – 2432 of them, compared to just 1920, but falls short of the GTX 1080 by just 128 of them. Why, then, would you not just make that tiny extra leap to a full-fat GTX 1080? To help answer that question, I’ve got Zotac’s take, the GeForce GTX 1070Ti AMP Extreme, while Katharine has MSI’s GTX 1070Ti Gaming 8G. Together, we should hopefully find out how … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070Ti review: Better than the GTX 1080?
Home • PC Game Hardware • 18 A not so super trouper Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 2nd July 2019 / 2:01PM If you’ve ever wanted to buy a new graphics card for playing games at 2560×1440, there’s literally never been a better time to buy one. There are just so many of them! Nvidia’s RTX 2060 already does a pretty fine job of it – so much so that it’s currently my top recommendation for the best graphics card you can buy right now – and there’s also the even cheaper GTX 1660 Ti, AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 cards, too, and in less than a week we’ll have AMD’s new Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT Navi cards to pick from as well. And, of course, there’s the RTX 2070, which is even better than the RTX 2060 at 1440p gaming but is also rather expensive. Enter Nvidia’s RTX 2070 Super card – an even faster version of the RTX 2070 for a similar-ish sort of price. Coming in at … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super review: Still a super tough sell…
Home • 165 John Walker Prisoner 9th February 2011 / 1:21PM While digging into the remarkable story on FoxNews.com, in which it was claimed that games like Bulletstorm cause rape, I got in touch with each of the contributors quoted in the article. Neither of the two doctors have yet got back in touch, but Billy Pidgeon of M2 Research responded with a detailed explanation of what he’d really said to the news outlet. And would you believe it – it has little in common with how their selective quoting made him appear. Quite how little is striking. After quoting two experts, neither of whom appear to have any expertise regarding the effects of videogames, both of whom were apparently very quick to condemn the game, they then announce that the game’s unlikely to sell well anyway, citing Pidgeon from M2 Research. Tellingly they refer to him as a “defender”, before quoting him appearing to do anything but. In the original article it appears … [Read more...] about Churnalism: Fox News’ Selective Quoting
Home • PC Game News • Red Dead Redemption 2 • 130 Craig Pearson Contributor 5th November 2019 / 1:00PM Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now on PC, two years after it was first announced on consoles, and just one month after it was confirmed for PC. It’s on the Rockstar Games Launcher and Epic Games Store, and will mosey on over to Steam in December. So here we are, one of the largest games ever released and it’s treating Steam like a lame mule. We’ve seen before how Epic can bag exclusives for their store, though this one lasts just a month and not a year. Still, they only take a 12% cut of sales vs Valve’s share that starts at 30% and shrinks to 20% according to sales. When you’re looking at the sort of sales that Rockstar’s games garner, the value of that will be in the tens of millions. So even a month of exclusivity to their own store and Epic’s Games Store could make a huge difference in … [Read more...] about Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now – but not on Steam
