PC Perspective Podcast #598 – RTX 3090 Launch! Samsung 980 PRO PCIe 4, Microsoft buys Bethesda, and so much more!
Join us this week for another technology discussion on the topics that some people really really want to know more about!
Nvidia launch roughness continues with limited 3090 availability. Samsung is making a really fast PCIe 4 SSD – but the NAND man! AMD continues with their launching of rumors. ARM making servers – good ones – all on their own, thank you very much. Plus Microsoft buys Bethesda, and everyone feels fine.
And Josh flexes his very own 3080. It looked heavy. Also there’s a lurking spatula.
Finally, our Patreon members get the uncut version with an after-the-show-Show visit from former PCPer storage editor: Allyn M. That version is literally the “3 Hour Tour” of Podcasts however. Seriously.
