The TR Podcast 167.5 bonus edition: You guys ask us stuff!

In this special, video-only edition of The TR Podcast, we’re freestyling without Jordan—and without much of a plan! Instead, we take questions from the chat channel about whatever, including new GPUs coming in 2015, likely CES highlights, our iPhone 6 and 6 Plus review, and our take on the AnandTech buyout. Also, Geoff talks about his efforts to create a new SSD test suite, and Cyril makes a troubling analogy.

Thanks to everybody who joined in live last night and asked questions. We had a blast recording this episode. We’re already thinking we should do more audience-driven sessions like this one in the future.

If you’d like to be notified when we’re recording, follow us on Twitch or simply follow me on Twitter. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to receive notices when we post videos there.

    Any chance on getting a MP3 version of this extra podcast chat? I would like to listen to this on my daily commute

      It seems MediaMonkey stopped catching Podcasts from TechReport in September. Have they all been video only, or do I have an issue with Mediamonkey?

    Great video, you guys.

    Any updates on microstuttering with SLI using your famous frame time analysis? I know Nvidia implemented frame pacing a while ago. With the new Maxwells and the advent of G-sync, what do frame times in SLI now look like?

    The reason I ask is that I’m sure a single GTX 970 would be fine for 1440p G-sync, but I might want to get two to ensure I can hit 120 Hz if I want to use 3D vision. For that you want to keep frame times under 8.3 ms, right? For newer games, that likely requires two 970s in SLI. But what’s the point if we’re still getting tons of microstutter?

    Edit: Guru3D has some intriguing FCAT graphs in their 9/26/14 970 SLI review. What are your thoughts?

    Thanks for the stream guys. I couldn’t make it for the live event but your videos/podcasts are always much appreciated. 🙂

    Agree with you Scott. I’m a huge Borderlands fan and it was a bit hard to get into the Pre-Sequel but the new characters are worth it.

    That being said if you are really drained on the FPS versions the Tales from the Borderlands is excellent, pick it up.

      In my opinion the Telltale take on Borderlands isn’t really a game, and I’d recommend people just watch someone’s stream or video and save themselves the money. Personally I did enjoy the first episode – but I found getting immersed in the story only to get taken out of it by the need to spam”Q” occasionally was annoying.

      I also expected the initial cost to cover all the episodes, but found out each additional one costs another $5. Just – no.
