Podcast #700 - RTX 4080 Review, High GPU Prices Explained, GN Solves 4090 Connector Mystery, 1-click AMD boost!

We have made it to episode 700!!! Sure, only half of the crew made it this far, but that's just how it goes. It's a war of attrition, and Jeremy was there from episode one (Josh joined a bit later). And this week we decided to gather, virtually, once again, and talk about the most affordable graphics card ever made!

RTX 4080 review, gaming PC building vs consoles, Nvidia earnings, some good security news for once, and more!

We are back after a week off (mostly spent traveling to the AMD event), and can finally talk about Radeon RX 7000 Series specs and pricing, and try to extrapolate (very popular word these days) performance. In fact, I think Josh may have over-extrapolated himself, but he will recover soon.

We also talked about other stuff, as Brett tried to make it more balanced, in spite of my best efforts. Full list in the time stamps below.

It's another week, and another PCPer podcast! Recorded August 10, 2022.

News is first, and while it may be mid-August of 2022, NVIDIA had a bad quarter in Q2 2023 already. Not the first thing we'd do if time travel was realized, but it takes all kinds. We also discuss reports of the AMD Ryzen 7000 DDR5 sweet spot, look at some re-purposed retro tech from the 2022 Hackaday Prize winners, and look into Gigabytes replacement for the Z690i Ultra mobo. Plus mandatory Intel Arc news (they went PRO), and the usual 'gaming quick hits' and depressing 'security corner'.

Featured this week is Kent's third installment in the 'upgrading in mid-2022' blog, with further explorations of the major and minor components he chose, and why.
