In this episode, special guest David Kanter joins Scott to go deep on Intel's Skylake CPU and its graphics architecture. We also address some questions about the recent controversy surrounding the differences between Nvidia's and AMD's approaches to DirectX 12 asychronous compute shaders—the source of a comment that's taken the Internet by storm.
