This episode’s tech news segment kicks off with a look at the Larrabee architecture. Scott dissects the new GPU tech from Intel and considers the potential impact this tech could make on the PC market. We also cover some gaming news, the possibility that Nahelem will be dubbed Core i7 (huh?) and the full rap sheet of celebs at Nvidia’s upcoming Nvision 08. In tech topics, we dive into AMD’s 790GX chipset, PhysX for Nvidia GPUs, and our recent power-supply comparo. Finally, Jordan converses with just brew it!, farmpuma, and notfred about the ins and outs of Folding@Home. Join us next week when we do a ‘how to start folding’ segment.
