As the leaves turn color, little woodland creatures prepare to hibernate, and large microprocessor companies sell their fabs, the TR Podcast continues to bring home the proverbial tech bacon. After kicking off this episode with a short listener Q&A, our editors discuss the biggest story of the year: AMD spinning off its fabrication business. We then prognosticate and pontificate over the latest Core i7 rumors from the Intel side of things.
In the middle of the episode, Jordan interviews TR regular PerfectCr (who's also known as The Perfect Creation in the wrestling world and Rich Criado on his driver's license). Rich gives us his insight on technology, wrestling, and gaming tattoos. To finish things up, our editors discuss our latest GPU review, Intel's G45 Express chipset, and of course, what you can expect to see (and hear) on TR this coming week.

Which drives the industry more? (0:01:54) - from Cliff (Hoser on the forums):
Which do you feel drives the industry forward more...hardware or software? It's a see-saw battle between CPU's and GPU's keeping up with gaming...or is it the other way around? I want to know which side you think really pushes the industry into the future keeping things new and fresh.
