I think that when you guys have video or audio issues it almost makes the podcast better because of the jokes and such, I've been catching it live for just that reason :D

Awesome podcast, why cant we get an episode 7 days a week?

April 11, 2013 | 04:11 PM - Posted by Josh Walrath

Because we don't want Ryan and Ken slitting their wrists having to deal with the rest of us every day in such an environment.

Either I'm losing my mind, or Josh said "Space Herpes".

April 11, 2013 | 10:02 PM - Posted by Josh Walrath

You are losing your mind.  Or you could be watching Ice Pirates.  Or both.

Falcon Ridge Thunderbolt, they may as well call it Apple Ridge Thunderbolt! How many non-Apple laptop SKUs feature any thunderbolt at all, and of the few that do, how many have 2 thunderbolt ports, like the Retina macbook pro!
On non Apple hardware there appears to be more thunderbolt available on desktop motherboards (just where it is not needed) and hardly any on laptops (where it could be of greater use). Oh no! Intel is more focused on its ultrabook formfactor, with its stripped down 2 core i7s. Just a hint Intel, what about the PC market downturn, and the non-thin-and-light laptops, that are light enough for even a hunched over old fart like me to easily lug around! I need a six-core Laptop, sans the Intel HD graphics stellar performance! I need 4 threads for each of those 6 cores, and I'll take my graphics with AMD or Nvidia! Better watch out for Super USB (whatever thay call IT), beacuse it will be in more laptops, before even the first generation Thunderbolt makes its slow appearence of your superfast, somewhat, Vaporware for all points, if it is not on regular laptops, becomes widely available on non Apple products! How is you Thinner and Lighter bank account, Intel? Those fabulous chip Fabs, cost dearly to run!

Get off of my lawn! you Intel marketing SCREWUPS!!!!!!!

Would you Kickstart PC Perspective? I would in a New York (insert you time unit here), but any laptop reviews would have to include information about the graphics drivers, OEM or Generic! Stress testing the laptop by getting standard (cheep) thumb drives and saturating the laptop's USB bandwidth by simultaneously transfering 64 gigabites to each USB thumb drive, plugged into every available usb port!
I wonder how long many laptops would take for this simple benchmark! A kickstarted Pcper should review every laptop to the same degree as a gaming rig, or not review the laptop at all! Testing Open Source software on all PCs/laptops is a must for any kickstarted PcPer!
And ads thinly disguised as articles, should never appear, some websites (NOT PCPER) are nuthing but ads thinly disguised as articles (ATDAA)! And finally theoretical maximum, is just that, theoretical, Any claim of performence that quotes the "theoretical maximum" should never be published with regards to any product (cheep flash/thumb drive OEMs are the worst at this) unless the product actually demonstrates "theoretical maximum performence"! AND....the list goes on...

get off of my lawn, you cheep thumb drive sales person, It's the damn write speed, that you never appear to publish on your product packaging! The only salesman that I ever trusted was the fuller brush man, and I bare a remarkable resemblance to one such salesman, or so my father used to tell me!

ROCCAT Kone Gaming Mouse would make an excellent addition to my system.

First off, thanks for your work. The "frame rating" benchmark you are developing is amazing!

I have the first generation Roccat Kone and Ithink it was one of the most comfortable mice I have ever tried - and i tried a bunch!. However, that first Kone had a weakness I hope they have fix in this generation: the scroll wheel sucked at gaming, specially in FPS games! It still was a great mouse for general usage just not for gaming.

I love you Josh! Mary me! ;)

Ok, you are now Mary.  Break it to your parents slowly.

The real question is: Why don't the media and police investigate the facts first, before pointing the finger and further perpetrate stereotypes? Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and dust the top skin whitening melbourne lightly with flour. Phyto-estrogens skin whitening melbourne present in the human body as a defense mechanism to some predator's attack.

I love the podcast. I love giveaways too. Good stuff to be had. Thanks to your frame rating information I shy'd away from buying crossfire AMD cards and opted to just get a better single GPU. Thanks.

Hey guys, I love the podcast! One of my favorites that I look forward to every week. I don't know why but the way Josh says his name in every intro makes it so that I can't help giggling like a school girl, awesome!
