We kick off this latest TR Podcast with a reminder that, if you’re a TR reader and you live near or within flying distance of lake Michigan, you’re more than welcome to attend the annual TR BBQ. After that piece of community news, our podcast panel gets down and dirty with DiRT 3, which Geoff has had a chance to play and review. Our gaming coverage also includes a second look at the somewhat disappointing (at least at launch) Crysis 2—a game that may have redeemed itself with a monstrous, multi-gigabyte DirectX 11 patch.
We then move on to the desktop version of AMD’s A-series Fusion APU, a.k.a. Llano. Scott gives us another in-depth expose on these new processors, not to mention some insightful guesses about the origins of AMD’s latest naming scheme. On the industry news front, Cyril and Scott discuss some juicy rumors about next-gen of GPUs from AMD and Nvidia. Finally, we bring up the rather odd Silverstone Raven RV03 enclosure and wonder—is it innovative or just weird for weirdness’ sake?
