It's still up on their youtube channel, they just took the embed link down from this page (presumably till they've got a corrected version up).

I really enjoyed the Podcast this week :), esp the "outtakes" afterwards. Most def has become part of my weekly "tech feed".

Sorry everyone, the better version should be up now.  :)

Hey Ryan great show and website. Just a simple question about multiplier and CPU load. I'm building a high end gaming machine and will be playing strictly multiplier FPS Farcry 3 (bf3 64 players) . was gonna get an i5 as the internet in general thinks i7 is no difference in games. (apparently games don't make use of Hyper threading) but then i saw a benchmark for battlefield 3 64 player game and i7 was way better!

looks like CPU is much more important in multiplier. kinda makes all those benchmarks everyone does useless unless its for single player gamers. and we all know single player is boring.

anyways i hope you can clear this up. maybe you should be the only reviewer that has a multiplier section?

Multiplayer* lol sorry I had to I kept on thinking of a CPU's multiplier determining clock rate :P
