How to get the best settings in Valorant So, this is what we’re aiming for here: settings where we can hit the best frame rates without compromising too much on graphical fidelity. Since the GTX 1060 is more than capable of playing Valorant at high frame rates on PC, I decided that the best way to test the game was to swap it for the weakest graphics card I had to hand – my trusty AMD Radeon R9 270. With just 2GB of VRAM to its name, this graphics card from 2013 regularly struggles with today’s top games, as we’ve seen time and time again in my performance tests for games like The Division 2 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. … [Read more...] about Valorant PC requirements and how to get the best performance

It’s currently out of stock in the US, but given you’ll have to pay a comical amount at the few places where the CPU can still be bought, you’re best off waiting this one out. … [Read more...] about CPU deals of the week – 13th July 2020
Possibly because I’ve spent most of my life with PCs some way behind the curve in terms of hardware, I’ve never been that bothered about how games look. But Horizon Zero Dawn is an exception. It looked a couple of years ahead of its time even in 2017 on PS4, and if Katharine’s experimentation with Death Stranding (which uses the same engine) are anything to go by, HZD’s PC port is going to absolutely batter us aesthetically.
