Podcast #629 – Nvidia LHR GPUs, Modular Laptop, Pure Rock Slim 2 Cooler, Cherry KB & Mouse + More!

Another show in the bag! Episode #629 was notable for it’s complete lack of drama and relatively smooth running nature. I blame Kent.

Nvidia is releasing the Low Hash Rate GPUs, but not all of them will be and not all will be labeled as such. Intel would like to switch all your PSUs over to 12 Volt Only, and AMD is trying to XT all the things. There’s rumors of a XT CPU variant, and there’s also some AMD PCI driver coding issues on older CPUs, and Microsoft is offering audio narration for locations in Flight Sim – kinda cool.

Also, we have reviews of one of the neatest little CPU coolers for very little money, and super quiet keyboard and mouse from Cherry. Yes, the ‘MX’ key switch people. And more! Like our world famous Josh burger review – don’t miss that, eh?

Stay for the Carl Weathers joke too. Later!

We encourage you to check our our sponsor this week, Molekule as they are serious about indoor air quality. Visit their site and use our promo code ‘PCPER’ for up to $120 off, free shipping and a 30 day home trial on one of their virus stomping air purifiers.
