Maximum PC is the magazine that every computer geek, PC gamer, or content creator should read every month. Each and every issue is packed with punishing product reviews, thorough how-to articles, and the illuminating technical news and information that PC power users crave. Maximum PC covers every single topic that requires a lightning-fast PC, from video editing and music creation to PC gaming; we write about it all with unbounded enthusiasm for our collective hobby.
WELCOME to the latest edition of Maximum PC. So first let’s start with the good. This issue is jam-packed with a ton of features, content, and gloriousness to get your teeth stuck into. We’ve gone and compiled our favorite hardware from the last 12 months, handing out our awards in this year’s prestigious Gear of the Year feature. We’ve also got Jarred back in the house to give us the lowdown on ray tracing, DLSS, Cyberpunk 2077, and what the future holds for graphics in general. Our man from Down Under, John Knight, gives us his fine interpretation of the history of computing, from analog all the way up to the modern era, while Ian Evenden has a fantastic piece on stripping out your old operating system and replacing it with a brand new Windows 10 OS install, all squeaky clean and shiny.
We’ve also got tutorials on how to tidy up your Windows desktop, and a huge seven-and-a-bit pages of build-it this issue, courtesy of our friends over at Tom’s Hardware (and trust me you don’t want to miss this one, as it’s a true beauty—in fact you can spot it on the cover). And then of course we have oodles of reviews, from AMD’s 6900XT GPU (which I seriously want myself) to Nvidia’s RTX 3060 Ti, to a whole swathe of peripheral goodies. This issue is brimming with kick-ass content. Sadly, however, this issue has also been a bit rough for myself and the team. Unfortunately Christian’s had to take some considerable time out, and he won’t be back full-time for around six to nine months as he battles some big health concerns. It is quite serious, but the prognosis is very good. I’m sure he’ll have more to say on it next issue, since it’s not really my place to explain it. But I just want to say that we’re all behind him, and Future is supporting him as well, and we expect him to make a full recovery.
On top of that, my other half also managed to contract COVID-19 a few weeks back, and I got it as well. This put a huge dampener on my plans for this issue. In fact I had two epic builds lined up for it, ready to be shot in our photo studio, but unfortunately with Christian also out of action, no one could build them. Don’t worry, they’re penned in for next issue, and I’m super-excited for both of them. Thankfully the folks over at Tom’s Hardware stepped in, and gave us an incredible liquid-cooled build log, complete with fresh content, and some new insight into their whole process, courtesy of Niels Broekhuijsen. I’d also like to take this opportunity to welcome in some new blood to the team. Just while Christian is out, from next issue Sam Lewis will be joining the fold as a temporary staff writer, and bringing with him a whole swathe of epic content too. He’s a dab hand at Photoshop and graphic design, loves VR, and is also fond of high-end audio. I hope you enjoy the latest issue of Maximum PC.
