In this week’s hardware podcast Paul, Harry, Antony and Clive sit down to discuss the latest happenings in the world of computer hardware.
First on the list of topics, much to Clive's disappointment, is the launch of Intel's new Sandy Bridge based LGA1155 CPUs
. We cover the basics of what makes the new processors so ace, while discussing who should actually be upgrading to these ridiculously overclockable chips. [break]
Harry also gives us the low-down on his experiences at CES, and lets us know what impressed and what disappointed at the show. Unfortunately, this year was mostly dominated by concepts and roadmaps, rather than actual retail-ready products, but there were still some interesting nuggets to discuss.
We then briefly touch on gaming laptops, and whether we think they're worth the cash, before going on to announce the winner of the last hardware podcast competition. We also announce this episode’s competition - if you think you know which piece of hardware we’re describing in the podcast, send your answers along to firstname.lastname@example.org
