Even with summer gone, cooling remains a hot topic. How can the cooling performance of a graphics card be improved without replacing the cooler, or switching to liquid cooling? We'll cover some causes of poor cooling performance.
We test how passive cooling treats Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, and discuss some of the challenges a passive cooler presents to a 75W graphics card.
Intel's Kaby Lake falls into the comes bearing the tuned 14nm+ process, a revamped graphics engine and a new chipset.
You'll need serious gaming hardware to play Watch Dogs 2, so we put about 30 graphics cards through two taxing sequences to help determine how your PC will fare.
Bars, curves, or both? We explain how we benchmark graphics cards and present our results, including a look at software developed in-house to make this easier.
We've rounded up all the GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards we can find. Read on for an in-depth look at ten different interpretations of Nvidia's flagship GPU.
AMD's new drivers introduce a feature called Radeon Chill, which promises to reduce power consumption situationally. We test its impact.
Nvidia's Pascal-based GPUs are finally colliding with AMD's Radeon RX portfolio. Do the GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti rival Polaris' value proposition?
AMD's second 14nm GPU, Polaris 11, is ready for prime time in the Radeon RX 460. Can you really expect playable 1080p performance from a $110 graphics card?
Nvidia drives unprecedented efficiency into the mainstream with its Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060, but can it compete with AMD's $200 Radeon RX 480?
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 is the company's Pascal-based flagship, but its upcoming GTX 1070 is bound to turn more heads with a $449 price tag and GeForce GTX Titan X-like performance.
AMD released a new driver to address some of the power and current issues we discovered in our Radeon RX 480 measurements. Is the problem now solved?
The long-awaited Polaris 10 GPU is ready for prime time on the Radeon RX 480 graphics card. How does AMD's first 14nm offering fare against previous-gen boards renowned for great performance?
How does a power supply work? Why is it important to choose a sufficiently powerful and efficient model? We guide you through discussions of efficiency and tips for getting the best deal before we go on to explain why less can be more in the PSU market.
An old friend is finally available on the PC without frame rate restrictions: 'Need for Speed' is here to push PC graphics cards to their limits. Expectations are high after the long wait, and the game lives up to some (but not all) of them.
AMD's new A10-7890K represents the very top of the low-cost APU family. We're answering whether it can breathe new life into the line via online gaming, or if its small clock rate bump just isn't worth more money compared to the A10-7870K.
If you thought that buying and unpacking an expensive infrared camera was all that it took to perform professional-level measurements, then it's time for a little lesson. We’ll share some of the knowledge that goes into generating accurate results.
DirectX 12 has been available since Windows 10, but there aren't any games for it yet, so we're using the Ashes of the Singularity beta to examine DX12 performance.
AMD's Radeon R9 Fury has been called everything from a hot plate to a space heater. This doesn't have to be the case, though. We massively improved the card's efficiency by undervolting it.
Never has a stock CPU cooler garnered as much attention as AMD's Wraith. Manufacturers usually don't even mention these bonus items, but AMD's new CPU cooler has changed all of this. Is the Wraith really a game changer?
May the FPS be with you! We test Star Wars: Battlefront's graphics performance on different hardware. Our results provide some good news: older graphics cards do just fine fighting the Galactic Empire.
A great many Tom's Hardware readers are already immersed in the world of Fallout 4. We're here to show you how the game runs across a wide range of graphics cards, resolutions and detail settings.
