Show notes
It's a Jordan-less episode this week, but that doesn't mean it's not any good. We talked about the AMD Zen rumors, enjoyed special guest Rys talking about his excellent Semiconductors from idea to product, and we dug into ARM's new Cortex-A72 CPU architecture, among other things.

We're still streaming each of our podcast recording sessions live on Twitch. If you want a combination of our dulcet tones and stunning visages, you'd do well to catch the next show live—or check out the YouTube edition of this episode below.

Send in listener mail, and we'll answer on the podcast: jdrake@techreport.com
