Hardware 12 - SpineTech Beta Now Open

Posted on 18th Jun 2010 at 10:10 by Podcast with 9 comments

Podcast
Welcome to Episode 12 of the bit-tech and Custom PC podcast, brought to you from our plush media suite located just outside of Cape Town. No, really, we've got the vuvuzelas and everything... Oh, alright, we're actually in the usual backroom of our central London office.

Now that we've recovered from Computex 2010 and got things into some semblance of order in our lives, we can reflect on what the show had to offer. Exactly why was Nvidia harping on about 3D when the rest of the show was tablet mad? Could it be that Nvidia has some high-end graphics cards to shift, perhaps? We look back at Asus' huge Immensity motherboard, PowerColor's crazy HD 5770 range and why ARM are feeling so confident at the moment.

Podcast
The long-awaited (or so we’d like to think) tenth episode of the Hardware Podcast sees Rich, Clive, Harry and James rather confused about tenses and timelines. You’d think that four reasonably intelligent hardware reviewers would be able to understand that if you record a pod on Thursday to cast on Monday, you need to act as if Monday is in the past. Apparently not. Revealed in this pod: the capital of Hardwareland is Gulftown, and the most effective components for an energy-efficient PC.

Podcast
Happy new year to all you Custom PC Podcast listeners, and thanks again for all your best wishes for the year!

The CPC podcast is back for 2009. Among the topics of discussion by Clive, Mark and Alex are Nvidia’s attempt to go green by jumping on the environmentalism bandwagon with low voltage GeForce 9600 GT cards, and the revelation that Eidos is preparing to be acquired by an external bidder. The panel also mull over the fact that id Software has hired a proper writer to pen a story for Doom 4, and why stories in games are important. On the new hardware front, there’s the GeForce GTX 285 and 295 to consider, and of course, guess the game music competition and the games chart also return.
