Podcast #659 – RTX 3080 12GB, 2k Watt PSU, NUC 12 with LGA, DLDSR tech, RX 6500 XT x4 + MORE!

Post-CES is generally pretty light for a few weeks, but not this year! Josh was out sick but Kent stepped in and we had a low-key discussion of the topics of the evening. The RTX 3080 12GB, a 2000w PSU, the Intel NUC 12 will have LGA socket, Nvidia latest resolution dance with DLDSR, the RX 6500 XT is only x4 for PCIe, the Intel i9 is hitting 5.5Ghz OOTB?
