Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Graphics Benchmark: What You'll Need to Play

Launched on PC a year after it debuted on consoles, Red Dead Redemption 2 is still a big release that deserves a detailed benchmark analysis, much like what we've done for other titles this year like Borderlands 3 where we compared over 60 GPUs, Metro Exodus, and most recently Fornite Chapter 2. Unfortunately those plans went out the window when we discovered how hard benchmarking this game was going to be.

Death Stranding Review

There is no elevator pitch for Death Stranding. Every inch of the game teems with meaning or implication. Even the most pretentious developments build to create a multi-layered game. It is a story about fatherhood. It is a dig at the gig economy. It is deeply concerned with environmental disaster and American politics, old and new.

The State of Nvidia RTX Ray Tracing: One Year Later

Time to revisit the state of ray tracing. It's been months since we last discussed ray tracing in detail, when we tested it on early titles such as Battlefield V, and the latest releases of Metro and Tomb Raider, so there's plenty of fresh stuff to go over, more benchmarks, more experience playing those games and quite a few opinions. This is bound to be a long one, so strap yourselves in.

The Outer Worlds Review

Yes, The Outer Worlds mechanically resembles the Fallout series. It was made by the same team that worked on the first two Fallout games. It's built on the skeleton of Dungeons and Dragons. This is not dissimilar to what Fallout has become under the ownership of Bethesda, though I will say that I have not felt as motivated to finish Fallout 3 or 4 as I felt to finish The Outer Worlds.

Testing the Intel Core i5-10210U: 10th-Gen Laptop CPU with Adaptix Technology

Today we're reviewing another 10th-generation Intel CPU, and like the last one we tested, the 4-core/8-thread Core i5-10210U is much more interesting than it appears at face value. You'd think that with these 14nm+++ CPUs Intel has basically nothing left in the tank, but even with the quad-core we're reviewing today, that's surprisingly far from the truth.
