Here's 15 minutes of Battlefield 5 running on an RTX 2080 Ti

Last week at Gamescom, Nvidia briefed us on its upcoming RTX 2080 / 2080 Ti, the Turing architecture, and what to expect from the next generation of graphics cards. As part of the event, we were also shown demos of multiple games running with RTX enabled effects. One of those games is Battlefield V, and we were allowed to capture live footage of the game. Unlike previous footage, we were playing the game this time, using ShadowPlay to record the session.

Acer’s new monitor makes 4K HDR gaming with G-Sync more affordable

We got our first glimpse of 4K gaming monitors combining a fast 144Hz refresh rate with G-Sync and HDR support all the way back at CES in January 2017. Those displays only recently (and finally) became available, one from Acer (Predator X27) and one from Asus (ROG Swift PG27UQ), both priced at around $2,000. That's not exactly affordable, and neither is Acer's new Predator XB273K with a similar set of features, but it does lower the cost of entry.
