If you haven't heard Jordan's latest creation, the documentary-style CES "experience" podcast, you owe it to yourself to give it a listen. Very different from our other podcasts and a nice look into our little corner of the world. Even if you can't stand to hear us talk each episode, this one is worth catching.
I really hope it works out that we can keep doing creative things like this. On that front, I would like to give a big tip o' the hat to Zotac for sponsoring this episode. They made something very cool and distinctive possible for us.
If you do listen the podcast and enjoy it, by the way, I'd appreciate it if you could take a second and give us a ranking and perhaps a review on iTunes. That's one of the best places for us to attract new listeners, and although we know we have a pretty good audience for the show, we're a little low on participation there.
On another note, I have 13 processors tested, with three more underway here in Damage Labs as I write. The range is roughly from $74 to $999 in price, and I've also thrown in a Core 2 Quad Q6600 for comparison with newer stuff. (Funny to see it getting creamed by $99 CPUs, although a little sad in a way.) I'm pondering including a Pentium 4 670, since hey, it should be socket-compatible with our Core 2 test rig. Once all of the test data have been sliced and diced, we should have a nice, broad CPU comparison for you, complete with some value data. That will the form the basis for our upcoming system guide update, if all goes as planned.
