Hardware 22 - The Second Day Magazine

Podcast
It’s podcast time again, and this time we’re talking about all the lovely hardware we’ve seen in our labs over the last few weeks. Clive starts off by telling us all about the AMD Radeon HD 6790, and why it’s only likely to be around for a relatively short period of time.

At the top of the list is Nvidia's new graphics card, the GeForce GTX 590 3GB. The card crams two whole GPUs onto a single PCB, and its performance is great. As we discuss in the podcast, though, it's really the driver support that will make it either a classic or a flash in the pan.
