Show notes
To kick off the episode, we welcome a new TR writer, Jeffrey Kampman, to the show. Then, it's on to a deep dive into the hottest announcements from Computex. Cyril give us the lowdown on AMD's Kaveri APU, Scott talks about Cavium's 48-core ARM processor, and the staff talks 4K monitors, including the Asus PB287Q that Scott reviewed.

Next, Jordan and Jeffrey geek out over the latest from Apple's WWDC event, and Geoff follows up with his review of Crucial's MX100 solid-state drive. We wrap up the show with a slew of gaming stories from E3.
