Podcast #618 – AMD 6700XT & Threadripper PRO, Intel 670p, Aliens Games, DG2 GPU + More!

This shows ends with talk of an “iMac” on Mars (PowerPC 750 really) and how Aliens themed games have not always been good.

The news before those bits though included our take on the latest GPU from AMD, the 6700XT, and the availability of the DIY Threadripper PRO Processor. Intel is also still selling NAND based storage with the release of the 670p – I mean didn’t they sell that? Brief update on their DG2 GPU and how you can no longer get your overclocked Intel CPU warranty repair insurance from them. So sad.
