Razer Nari Ultimate review: This haptics-enabled gaming headset lets you literally feel the groove

There’s one area where PC gamers get consistently overlooked: haptics. Haptic feedback (or rumble, in the vernacular) has been a mainstay of console gaming for almost two decades now, and for good reason. Smart usage can both increase immersion and provide invaluable feedback to players, e.g. letting you feel the moment digital tires lose traction on slick asphalt, or warning that an enemy’s shooting at you. There have been a few experiments, like SteelSeries’s Rival 500—a mouse with built-in haptics.…

Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 review: An ice-cold, whisper-silent beast of a graphics card

The hulking Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 shows how Nvidia’s graphics card partners can still stand out from the crowd in an era when Nvidia’s making it harder than ever to shine. Last generation, all customized GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards plateaued at virtually the same level of performance. Custom cards were notably better than Nvidia’s own GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, though, because Founders Edition cards were restrained by reference clock speeds and a subpar single-fan, blower-style cooler.…

Microsoft plans to make you pay more to rotate the Surface Hub 2, just to drive you crazy

Microsoft is refining its plans for its next-gen Surface Hub 2 collaborative display, separating the product into two distinct “experiences” that will require users to install an upgraded hardware module to enable. But here’s something that may rile some businesses: certain basic features like rotating the display will be reserved for the new, upgraded Surface Hub 2X model due in 2020. The two new models—the basic Surface Hub 2S, and the upgraded Surface Hub 2X —  will share the same…

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti vs. RTX 2080 Ti: Should you upgrade?

Two and a half long years after the launch of the GeForce GTX 10-series, Nvidia’s next generation of graphics cards is finally here, and the GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti top our performance charts. But should you upgrade to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti ($1,200 on GeForce.com) if you already own a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti? As always, the answer is, “it depends.” It’s easier to explain than the decision to buy a GeForce RTX 2080 or GTX 1080…

The Full Nerd ep. 68: GeForce RTX review, RTX 2080 vs. GTX 1080 Ti, what about Radeon?

In this episode of the Full Nerd, Gordon Mah Ung, Brad Chacos, Alaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray discuss our exhaustive review of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, the first graphics cards built around ray tracing and AI-enhanced image processing. Unfortunately, none of those technologies are available in any games yet, but Nvidia sent reviewers some canned demos to try them in action, and well, if Deep Learning Super Sampling works anywhere near this well in shipping games, it’ll be black magic.…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 vs GTX 1080 Ti: Which graphics card should you buy?

The long-awaited GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti are finally here, new “RTX” moniker and all, and well, they’re mighty impressive pieces of kit. Nvidia infused the radical Turing GPU at their hearts with dedicated RT and tensor cores to (hopefully) ignite a gaming future brimming with ray tracing and AI-enhanced graphics. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the fastest graphics card ever, full stop. But I’ve heard plenty of people wondering: Should I buy a GeForce RTX 2080…
