No-nonsense true information for gamers, by gamers.
Spearblade prizes itself on authoring information that’s accurate. We’re not afraid to reflect the community’s opinions. We criticize gaming hardware so it can improve.
Gaming PCs: desktop gaming information.
If you don’t like the coolest towers (both literally and figuratively) and the best framerates, you’re at the wrong place.
FPS, or frames per second, is the single most important consideration for gamers of all types. Achieving a higher FPS releases all those chemicals that I don’t know the name of but which excite you. Dopamine or some stuff. Reaching a new, higher consistent FPS after upgrading your hardware or optimizing something else is a high like no other. Let’s talk about reaching that new, higher consistent FPS.
Directory of most reliable PC gaming parts manufacturers and buying guidance for those parts.
Crafting a new perspective for laptop gaming.
May the Force be with you, and may the chassis not melt. If you’re a gamer who worries about the battery life of a gaming laptop, you’re no gamer.
On a budget? Love gaming? Thinking of buying a gaming laptop? Great. You’re at the right place. Choosing the GPU, processor, storage, display resolution, screen size, etc. carefully can help you save a great deal of money while still getting decent gaming performance out of the hardware.
Can I change the laptop GPU? Upgrade it? Remove it? Laptop gamers usually have very concentrated GPU-related queries. In this guide, which shall henceforth be dubbed the “ARUC” (Adding, Removing, Upgrading, and Changing) guide, I’ll explain everything related to GPUs within a gaming laptop.
Gaming monitor technicalities, without all the marketing labels.
No more getting fooled by branding monikers and marketing lingo. True information regarding gaming monitors is right here. A good gaming monitor can increase the impact of the game, and we’ll try our best to deliver knowledge that will help you make the best choices.
Mind-boggling to some, kindergarten homework for others. What is the connection between the refresh rate and the FPS? How they affect each other? What’s the maximum FPS you can get on a monitor? Let’s find the answers to all these questions and more.
Screen tearing happens when your GPU’s framerate is out of sync with the monitor’s refresh rate. “Out of sync”, not “more” or “less”. Screen tearing remains to be the #1 gaming issue related to the monitor. But in fact, it’s got more to do with the GPU’s relation to the monitor than just the monitor.
Discussion of gaming components: GPU, processor, RAM, storage, cooling.
Discussing components is a vital part of any gamer’s life. Every decision feels stressful without proper and clear information regarding every aspect of gaming components.
The RTX 2060 is a decent gaming card. It can manage 4K gaming around 30 FPS for the more modern game titles. It has hardware-accelerated ray tracing.
AMD RX 5700 XT doesn’t have hardware-accelerated ray tracing. It has software-based ray tracing. Both are two very different things and depending on your usage, AMD RX 5700 XT’s ray tracing might do the job for you or might be completely worthless.
