Podcast #660 – RX 6500 XT, MS with Activision Blizzard, EXYNOS 2200, TSMC Expands, Thinkpad P15 Mobile Review + MORE!

2022 is still here, so are we. Welcome to the second show this year, sorry it was late being posted here – I’m blaming the pandemic.

The RX 6500 XT is a 4GB and 64bit mobile GPU wrapped in a PCIe desktop card. It behaves accordingly. Review of the Thinkpad P15 Mobile Workstation, TSMC is expanding, Nvidia CPU time, and Samsung finally reveals the EXYNOS 2200. Wait, there’s a supply chain shortage? Microsoft is buying gaming, all of it, one piece at a time. This time its Blizzard / Activision.
