Listener mail:

K80? - from Philip-John:

"Now that we have seen the GM210 in the Tesla K80, when do you think we will see it in a consumer graphics card? Will they initially fill demand for the K80 and then in about 6 months time transition it to the consumer market?"

Sub $300 peripherals? - from Peter:

"Hey TR Team (and Mr. No BBQ for Vancouver aka Geoff Gasior)

I enjoyed reading your TR August peripheral staff picks article but noticed that the cheapest monitor you picked out was barely sub $400.00 . Any chance we could see some staff picks in the future that (or a similar article) for those of us who can’t drop $400.00 plus tax (and likely shipping) on a monitor?"
