Acer Nitro 5 Speaking of displays, these new panels should be a lot more accurate than older Nitro 5 models we’ve tested in the past, as Acer are claiming they’ll be able to hit 100% of the sRGB colour gamut. Indeed, during a very brief hands on with one of the new Nitro 5 models earlier this week, the display looked much improved with rich, vibrant colours and good viewing angles and I’m looking forward to giving it a proper test once full review samples are available in February. … [Read more...] about These are the RTX 30 gaming laptops to watch out for in 2021
Intel’s 11th Gen Rocket Lake CPUs should be backwards compatible with 400-series motherboards 11th Gen Rocket Lake CPUs might be pitching up this year (all they said was that they’re still on track to arrive before the end of March), we did get some welcome news about whether they’ll be backwards compatible with their existing 400-series motherboards. Indeed, Asus have come out and said they’ll be releasing a BIOS update for many of their Z490 and H470 boards to ensure they still support Intel’s 11th Gen chips, which is a big relief for anyone who upgraded to one of Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake CPUs last year. … [Read more...] about All the important PC gaming news from CES 2021

Final Fantasy XV also doesn’t include any of the extra Nvidia effects here, either, but needless to say, the RTX 3080’s extra horsepower here puts it in much better stead for adding in option such as TurfEffects, HairWorks, ShadowLibs and its tough VXAO setting without dipping below that 60fps mark. The same goes for Metro Exodus’s ray tracing support, too. Admittedly, both cards still need DLSS switched on to achieve steady frame rates at this resolution with ray tracing enabled, but while the RTX 2080 Ti’s average of 53fps with Ultra-fied ray tracing on High is admirable, it’s still got nothing on the RTX 3080’s 67fps average using the same settings. … [Read more...] about Nvidia RTX 3080 vs 2080 Ti: which 4K graphics card is better?
Nvidia have also increased the TDP (or thermal design power) of the RTX 3080 to 320W this time, compared to the RTX 2080’s 215W TDP and RTX 2080 Super’s 250W TDP. This means it can draw a lot more power (and dissipate more heat) than its RTX 20 siblings, allowing it to go further for longer under load. As a result, it’s not really that surprising that the RTX 3080 offers such a giant leap over its RTX 2080 predecessors, but it does ask more of your PC as a result – namely, that have you have at least a 750W power supply to get the most out of it, rather than a 650W one required by the two RTX 2080s. … [Read more...] about Nvidia RTX 3080 vs 2080: how much faster is Nvidia’s new Ampere GPU?
