The fifth (or first) Hardware Podcast sees the chaps talk about Intel's Core i5 and i7 LGA1156 processors and they're stupid naming convention. And discuss why maybe it won't seem so stupid in a few month's time. Also up for debate is the HD 5870, the Asus Mars graphics card and Nvidia's odd drivers.

We also talk about the £30 Windows 7 offer for students, AMD's new Vision-based branding scheme, and the cheapest quad-core CPU ever. Plus there's a chance to win Zeno Clash and a reminder to enter our Reader Satisfaction Survey and potentially win a load of kit. Enjoy!
