Hardware 26 - Clouds of Gigaflops

Posted on 7th Aug 2011 at 14:27 by Podcast with 3 comments

Aaaand we're back for another enthralling hardware podcast. This week we've got Antony, Paul, Clive and Harry talking everything from fact to complete and utter fiction.

We start with a chat about PCI Express 3, whether we need it and why motherboard manufacturers are bringing PCI-E 3 motherboards to market already. If you're looking at a motherboard upgrade any time soon, should a PCI-E 3 compliant board be a priority?

We also have talk about AMD's forthcoming Bulldozer processors, with Antony telling us how he got on testing a number of Bulldozer-compatible Socket AM3+ boards earlier this month.

Also thrown in for good measure is a mention of Asus' soon to be released headset, and a discussion about whether the Antec Kuhler H2O 920 shows that closed-loop liquid cooling has come of age.

As always, we've also set up our weekly competition, the lucky winner of which will walk away with, errr, some random stuff from our labs (we're between prizes at the moment).

'Due South' - I loved that show! :)

I'm not sure if there's something wrong with your Shure microphones though - the sound levels are always up & down like a yo-yo...
