As we write these words, TR podcast host and producer Jordan Drake is in Santa Clara, California covering the Asus 3x3 Overclocking Summit. Asus happens to have live video streams of several locations at the event, so if you look closely, you'll be able to catch a glimpse of TR podcasting in action.
Today's summit pits three teams in a race to see who can get the most out of Asus' Rampage III Extreme and Maximus III Extreme motherboards. Or, in Asus' words:
Prior to the Rampage III Extreme's mass production, the [Asus Republic of Gamers] team worked closely with key overclockers worldwide to ensure exceptional performance under exotic cooling and to gather comprehensive feedback on bios tuning. What better way to kick-off this product launch than with an overclocking event?
On April 10, 2010, three leading OC teams in N.America battle it out for two days in ten benchmarks on the new ASUS ROG Rampage III Extreme and Maximus III Extreme motherboards. Team Pure, OC Alliance and XtremeSystems will go head to head to head in an 3-way overclocking tour-de-force. Which team will climb to the top? Check back here regularly for the latest on 3x3 OC, the teams and products!
You can stay up to date and check out the video streams from this page. Asus also provides an event schedule, which may prove helpful in keeping track of Jordan. If the recording equipment isn't a strong enough hint of Jordan's identity, our podcast host and producer is wearing a black sport coat, gray pants, and a light shirt with no tie—you can also find a lifelike rendition of him on TR's About us page.
Be on the lookout for our next podcast, where we'll get you the full scoop on the event.
