Guys we don't need new GPU's anymore because apparently we can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p according to Arstechnica, so who cares about 4k gaming. /s.

Never thought I would hear a technology site ever say that.

I think I know what your problem is.

When are you guys going to start the show on time and start acting professional rather then 30 to 40 year olds who still think they are in college drinking beer in there dorms rooms?

When will you start the show on time and also act like professionals?  You middle aged people act as if you are still in college drinking beer in your dorm rooms.

More correct?  Oh, and lighten up, Clarence.

I'm 34 and started watching the podcasts since beginning of this year and find them all very good. Got some good laughs in couple times from them. (Thanks Josh :))

PcPer and crew keep up the good work! This has become one of my top Tech sites I go to now on a daily basis and so have some friends of mine too.

Good call Jeremy!

Yes, my Halloween photos are coming in shortly :)
Those extra judges scores suggesting were tempting... :P

Great show! Ryan must really love you, Josh, to withstand all the abuse... or he's preparing an extreme come back! (ha ha, he's coming back... next podcast, maybe, ha ha)

Ken > Nice view of the studio :)

Video card insulation? What's the rating? I wonder if they produce more heat than keeping the cold out! :P

Wow, and I thought Josh would throw in more quirks at Morry.

That same anonymous guy has been commenting on a number of different posts. I am pretty sure it is the same person because he almost always says "butt hurt" in attempt to be either derogatory or funny. Ignoring him or treating him civilly is probably the best way to go. He is clearly aiming to incite people.

Once again, the "Big" story that Intel would be fabing ARM Chips for Altera, was blown all out of proportion by the non-technical tech press! These chips are FPGAs that just happen to have Arm v8 chips on them, and these ARM chips are there to program the FPGAs, and what language is Altera using to program the FPGPAs with, none other than OpenCL! the big story here is Altera's use of Opencl instead of the much harder to program in hardware description language (HDL), that FGPAs programmers traditionally used! So Altera's FPGA's have some on die ARM CPUs that can utilize openCL to program the FPGA hardware, that just so happen to use Intel as the FAB partner! Good for Altera, great for FPGA programmers, but a terrible job for the so called tech press! At least PCper updates their articles, when new information comes to light, but on most of the other tech sites, not the real tech sites like PCper, do you think they will update their articles to reflect the truth, not bloodly likely!
