While Scott is hard at work finishing his Nvidia GF100 review, Cyril and Geoff join Jordan for this short and sweet episode. We start with a roundup of gaming-related topics: the size of the market for top-of-the-line PC gaming hardware, EA’s broken DRM being assaulted from within, and Valve’s Gabe Newell speaking his mind about Ubisoft’s equally dysfunctional copy protection.
Moving on, Geoff has the scoop about AMD’s new gaming manifesto, and rumor has it cheaper DirectX 11 GeForce graphics cards could be coming out this summer. We wrap things up by going over our latest poll, which reveals the IT roots of a surprising portion of our readership, and by examining Google’s souring relationships with both Apple and the Chinese government.
