Testing AMD's new Radeon Anti-Lag Feature

Alongside the release of AMD’s new Radeon RX 5700 Navi GPUs, the company rolled out two new features in their Radeon driver suite. Last week we looked at Radeon Image Sharpening which directly targets Nvidia's DLSS, and today we're back to check out the second feature, Radeon Anti-Lag.

A Beginner's Guide to the Linux Command Line

Do you think of the command line as an antiquated leftover from the past, or an old fashioned way of interacting with a computer? Think again. In Linux, it is the most flexible and powerful way to perform tasks. For example, searching for all .tmp files in a directory (and its sub-directories) and then deleting them can be a multi-step process when done via graphical user interface, but is a matter of few seconds when done through the command line.

Nvidia Freestyle vs. Radeon Image Sharpening vs. Reshade

After testing AMD's new Radeon Image Sharpening feature, we've gone back for even more testing. The first article is definitely worth a read if you missed it, as we were mainly interested in seeing how Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) looked compared to a native presentation, and how effective it was at post-processing an upscaled image to look near-native. The big focus of the test was how RIS compared to Nvidia’s DLSS, and whether the two technologies could effectively do the same thing, even though they are different in how they work.

Add Tabs to File Explorer and Other Applications Ahead of Windows 10's "Sets" Feature

While tabs have been a core part of web browsers for more than a decade (including Internet Explorer), Microsoft is finally in the process of introducing a tabbed interface to the Windows File Explorer and other applications.

How 3D Game Rendering Works, A Deeper Dive: Rasterization and Ray Tracing

In this second part of our deeper look at 3D game rendering, we'll be focusing what happens to the 3D world after all of the vertex processing has finished. We'll need to dust off our math textbooks again, grapple with the geometry of frustums, and ponder the puzzle of perspectives. We'll also take a quick dive into the physics of ray tracing, lighting and materials -- excellent!

Improve Windows Start Menu's Search or Simply Install a Better Replacement

Although the Start menu is supposed to be the fastest way to find local files, software and settings, the default configuration for Windows 10's search indexing service is far from the best. The index located at C:ProgramDataMicrosoftSearch catalogs files and folders from around Windows so that when you perform a search, the operating system can simply check this database instead of scanning the entire drive.

"Run as Administrator": What Does It Mean?

As a TechSpot reader you've surely opened software as an admin on Windows before -- maybe as recently as today -- so the function probably isn't foreign to you. However, we were curious to know more about what happens under the hood of Windows when you tell the operating system to run a program as an administrator, and why this process is necessary in the first place.

Game Streaming Investigation: Which Quality Settings Are Best?

This is the first part of an investigation into game streaming, a topic that we've been requested on before -- particularly after we review CPUs -- but that has purposely been left out because it’s quite complex to explore all the nitty gritty details of streaming along with everything else in those reviews.

A Compilation of Command Prompt Tips, Tricks & Cool Things You Can Do

Although Windows' settings provide easy access for configuring most things, the Command Prompt -- elevated or otherwise -- can be indispensable in a number of scenarios, especially when you know how to take advantage of it.

How to Export Old Device Drivers to a New Windows Installation

Finding drivers online for old hardware can range from difficult to impossible if the gear is outdated by a decade, was never widely circulated in the first place, and no longer receives support from the manufacturer. Such was the situation for a Rosewill-branded PCI wireless network adapter that we recently installed on Windows 10 without an original installation disc or traditional installer.
