Sad but true: Sony and Microsoft’s so-called next-generation gaming consoles don’t seem very next-gen at all, with a slew of top games locked at 30 fps and still struggling to hit even 1080p resolutions. Even entry-level PC graphics cards can pull that off.
But we’re not here to harsh on consoles. Instead, we're celebrating just how good we PC enthusiasts have it. All week long, PCWorld’s basked in glorious, face-melting excess that’s possible only on PCs: Breaking benchmarks with AMD and Nvidia’s top graphics cards, building audacious rigs, and showcasing graphically beautiful—and PC-punishing—games.
There’s truly never been a better time to be a PC gamer. Buckle up.
