After a brief Thanksgiving hiatus, the TR Podcast is back in action with one of our best sounding episodes yet (no really, it is). The holidays are fresh on our minds as we start the show, and Scott jokes about the geekiness himself and others display by using LED Christmas lights. We go on to talk about our latest TR poll, a sneak preview of Scott's super-high-end GPU benchmarks, this season's new games, and the Christmas TR system guide (which includes the infamous Crushinator configuration, inspired by the namesake robot in Futurama).
Moving on to the latest TR review articles, Scott and Geoff dive into our Core i7 memory speed analysis, and they discuss Intel's blazing fast X25-E Extreme solid-state drive. Finally, Cyril talks fondly of his new 24" LCD monitor, and the intriguing tale of AMD's RV770 GPU unfolds with colorful insight from Scott.
