Podcast #617 – RTX 3060, Katar Pro XT, Fractal Meshify 2 Compact Reviews and Nvidia mining gimp plus so much more

Say it three times and we shall appear: Beetlecast! Beetlecast! Beetlecast! (you kinda had to be there)

We start it off with burgers and end with quite a lot of purple mood lighting. It’s gaming fast purple mood lighting, for sure though.

In between we somehow find time to discuss the latest GPU from Nvidia and our review of the RTX 3060, and what Nvidia is doing to deter mining on it. Other reviews include a Corsair mouse mat (huge) and their Katar Pro XT (inexpensive and good), and the newest case from Fractal Design, (an excellent choice) Meshify 2 Compact.

Also up for discussion points are how AMD is investigating poor USB behavior on X570, Apple M1’s burning through their SSDs maybe, better Firefox cookie security, Nvidia’s strong financials, and Diablo is going full MMO (never go full MMO?).
