Hardware 16 - The RAM Raiders

Posted on 9th Dec 2010 at 14:19 by Podcast with 29 comments

Podcast
We're back on air with another hardware podcast. This week Paul, James, Harry and Antony get together to discuss some of the latest goings on in the world of computer hardware.

First up on the agenda is the new graphics card releases from Nvidia - the GTX 580 and GTX 570. Harry has spent a lot of time with both cards over the last few weeks, so he walks us through what's new about the two cards.

James also puts Paul on the spot by grilling him on what he's been up to with the Sandy Bridge processors in our labs. Obviously we weren't able to go into too many details as Intel is keeping Sandy Bridge performance numbers top secret at the moment, but we share what we can.

Finally we move on to talk about what is currently happening in the world of RAM as the market has seen a number of high profile launches over the past couple of weeks. We also squeeze in the usual guess the hardware competition and a couple of your questions too.

Podcast
Yes, we've finally found time to record a new hardware podcast. Once you're over the shock you'll be able to hear the dulcet tones of Clive, Paul, Alex and James discussing the current goings on in the world of PC hardware.

We start by taking a look at the launch of ATI's Radeon HD 6870 1GB and HD 6850 1GB, discussing where they fit into the market and why we've chosen to call them ATI cards instead of AMD cards. Clive also spells out why ATI seems to have broken its naming convention with the two cards.

Gaming Podcast 9 - AvP, Heavy Rain and Hellgate

Posted on 19th Jan 2010 at 16:05 by Podcast with 13 comments

Podcast
The colossus which is the bit-tech gaming podcast may be slow to wake after the excitement of new year, but when it gets going then there's little that will stop it!

Which is our lame way of saying that we're sorry the first podcast of 2010 is a bit late, but that we hope it's exciting enough to make up for it. It should be anyway, with discussion covering all the games we're looking forward to next year, the merits and flaws of Steam and a whole batch of reader mail.

There's also a story that Harry tells about Joe which is totally made up and which nobody should listen to or believe. Says Joe.

On top of that we've got the usual Guess The Screenshot competition - though it's not the only competition we have on bit-tech at the moment by a long way. Check out the Competitions Hub for more chances to win prizes.

Use the links below to listen to the podcast and be sure to subscribe in iTunes to make sure you don't miss any future casts! Oh, and let us know your thoughts in the forums.
