    Podcast #761 - NVIDIA's Insane AI Growth, 14900KS Imminent, Corsair A115 Air Cooler, CoolerMaster sues + MORE!

    After a couple of weeks we are back at full strength, and it will take our combined willpower to withstand the might of NVIDIA's ridiculous earnings report. We also talked about the reported listings for a 400W Core i9-14900KS, took a look at Corsair's A115 air cooler, and Josh reviewed some food.  And also you can now trade one benevolent OS vendor for another with a Windows 10 -> ChromeOS upgrade!  Plus other topics, found in the time stamps below.

    Podcast #760 - ZLUDA for CUDA on AMD Cards, XBox Intel SoC Rumor, Ryzen 9 7945HX mITX Mobo + MORE

    Josh is back, but Brett was stuck at work - so we podcasted as a trio for the second week in a row. And this time, somehow (without Brett to add stories to the list), the entire show is just over 45 minutes long. Don't despair - there's still a burger segment!

    Podcast #759: Radeon RX 7900 XT Drops to 699 USD, Ryzen 8000G Thermals, ReBAR Mod for Older PCs + MORE!

    Josh abandoned us this week to stream himself virtually attending a Flight Simulator event, so you will have to contend with a trio of cranky people as we discuss another week's PC industry news. Sorry in advance - though Jeremy did walk us through Josh's burger segment.  There's still plenty to panic over in the Security Corner, and some AI coming to Google maps - just what we needed.

    Podcast #758 - NVIDIA RTX 4080 SUPER, Process Node Marketing vs. Reality, Fosi ZA3 Amp, and MORE

    Another week, another NVIDIA SUPER launch. But this is the last one, we promise. (We hope.) You probably already know it's barely any faster than the original, but it's $200 less (in the USA anyhow) so who cares, right??We talked about more stuff, too like why security is terrible and a cool game named "Judas".  Also, just check the time stamps below.

    Podcast #757: RTX 4070 Ti SUPER & Radeon RX 7600 XT Launch Reviews, Big Driver Updates, MORE

    Recorded live in GPU City, where a mutagen spill has radically altered our minds, but somehow left our bodies unchanged...and without any ninjutsu proficiency. Oh well, at least there are two GPU launches to talk about, and you'd better believe we talked about them. RTX gets a Remaster.  Also, a burger.

    Podcast #756 - GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER launch, Thermal Paste vs. Kryosheet Pad, CES leftovers, & Much More

    We are back again this week to discuss, among other things, just how super the GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER actually is. There are also some weird tales about display tech at CES, thermal pad vs. paste, more Windows LLM shenanigans, and even a new version of memtest86!  But wait!  There's some "great" security scares (and theater?) with some gaming news thrown in too!

Wonderful! :-) Two Thumbs Up!

The best of the best of PC hardware news and reviews. Low key, funny and informative. If you enjoy the show too, leave a review and rate it to help support PCper. I’ve listened every week for many, perhaps too many, years and frankly I’m not ashamed to say I play replay prior episodes. It’s the podcast I look forward to most each week. Hopefully it will continue into the infinite universe and radiate to other planets so interstellar life can enjoy it too.
