Podcast
The mixer is back and so now Episode 3 of Series 3 of the combined Custom PC and bit-tech podcast is here. CPC’s Alex and Mark are joined by Richard and Joe from bit-tech. On the hardware side of things, the panel discusses the upcoming P55 chipset and Lynnfield CPUs from Intel. Software wise, Chrome OS from Google is cause for much discussion, and there is a lot of games news, including Battlefield 1943, Left 4 Dead 2 and of course, the return of Monkey Island.

i'd love to have more car features :) gadgets + cars = winwin

i don't really think Crysis runs like a pig. it's graphical capability is ahead of its time, it's in fact very well optimised.

there was one other thing that i was going to say..... but forgot. why is this thread started so late? i heard the podcast on iTunes on Friday

Because it's "Sunday content", however the file has to be uploaded while we are physically in work (Friday eve) and the iTunes feed automatically sets itself up.

Keep it up bit-tech and cpc!

I always look forward to these podcasts. If you could pump out some more of these any faster that would be awesome.

I have to ask: is that just a stock photo, or is that your recording setup? I have a hard time believing you use an 8-track tape mixer to record a podcast.

It's actually the old bit-tech one Wil bought that uses Firewire, but we use a four port M-Audio.

Listened to it, good stuff. But is it just me, or have you still not fixed the volume issues? I can hear 1 person really well, then all the others sound like they're mumbling with a mouthful of crisps. . .

+1 Although it is heavily nvidia biased i think. Warhead performs considerably better. Tried Wars for the first time yestedya patched to version 1.5, if only Crysis or warhead had that engine version, it runs really really well and levels load in a fraction of the time. Even ones copied and pasted from the original into wars.
