Scott and Jordan hold down the fort in this latest episode of the TR Podcast. Our tech discussion starts with a bang. We talk about the Radeon HD 4870 X2, news from Nvidia, and get a podcast exclusive from Scott: Does three-way Radeon HD 4870 Crossfire perform better, the same, or worse than a regular 4870 X2? The tech doesn't stop there. Can the Eee desktop make the same stir as its netbook cousin? Who uses a built-in Wacom on a laptop? And how do you back up your 'gigs of goodies'? The episode finishes with the helpful Nick, Jim, and Mike, who tell us how to do Folding@home.

1 gig of RAM for the Radeon HD 4870? (0:02:07) - from JMC:
"Waiting for proper cooling to come out -stock- before I buy. But my question is... Has the time for 1 gig of video ram [for the Radeon HD 4870] arrived yet ***or over next year or two***? I keep my cards a year or two and don't want to be saying, "I sure wish I had spent a little more and gotten the 1 gig model"."
