PC hardware works best when it isn’t being held back by other components. But how do you know when things are running as they should, or when they’re being held back by other components in your system? This issue we delve into the murky world of bottlenecks, and show you how to check which subsystem is cramping your machine’s true performance. With the right benchmarks, and a smattering of know-how, you can unearth the best upgrades for your system, and discover what to watch out for in all your builds.

We investigate the recent announcements on real-time ray tracing from Nvidia, AMD, and Microsoft, and discover what the real problems behind 60fps ray tracing are, and how machine learning is integral to the future of the technology. We also take a look at why all of us should be getting more out of virtualization, and why it’s easy than ever to run virtual machines. On top of that we look at the real performance impact that Spectre and Meltdown have on your system, take a look at the Ryzen refresh, and much, much more.
