Podcast #654 – Snapdragon 8, AMD WiFi Chips, Bricking Samsung TVs, Windows on ARM, DDR4 still very good & plenty fast + more!

Back at it after a week off, welcome!

AMD has bought their way into having their own WiFi chips, curtesy of MediaTek.  DDR4 has still got it where it counts in many cases, and if you’ve got plenty of $ to blow, you can get yourself an ITX form factor convertible board for your Pi 4, and that Windows on ARM exclusive between Microsoft and Qualcomm looks to be ending.  Plenty more in the show, enjoy!
