    RTX 3080 vs Radeon 6800 XT - VR testing

    Didn't see a thread for this so I figured I would start one. Others can post similar articles as well if desired. https://babeltechreviews.com/vr-wars-the-rx-6800-xt-vs-the-rtx-3080-15-vr-games-performance-benchmarked/ Seems like the 3080 is on top in most tests, trading blows in others.

    Corsair TX650M vs SilentiumPC Supremo FM2 750W

    Would corsair TX650M be enough for RTX 3060Ti + Ryzen 5 3600, looking at the leaked 3060Ti specs (and that it should be kind of like RTX 2080 Super)? I've checked some PSU calculators and both barely exceed 400w. I could in theory give the Corsair TX650M back since it's unused and waiting for...

    2080 Super's Raytracing feature does not seem to work in Modern Warfare. Any suggestions?

    Hello all! I have been really enjoying my PC build and I am impressed at how it handles modern titles but, recently, I tried using Ray Tracing for, really, the first time. I never really thought about trying it much when I bought my system since all of the reviews said that it was overblown and...

    Digital Trends: Quake 2’s re-release proves indie games could lead the ray tracing revolution

    I think there is some merit to this article. Quake 2 is a simple game by modern standards, that makes a Ray Traced implementation more feasible, both in terms of performance: Q2-RTX is pure RT effects and still has decent FPS (simpler, fewer polygons, so less performance hit calculating...
