Podcast #685 – Core i9-13900K Tested Early, Bluetooth Audio Improving, PC and Game Sales Decline, Intel ARC 750 GPU, Steam everywhere + MORE!

We are back at it YET AGAIN, podcasting about another week’s worth of PC hardware and software news. It’s the kind of content you can only find in a few thousand other places, so you really don’t want to miss this one.  We’ve got Bluetooth audio improvements, Core i9-13900K early testings, same with Intel ARC 750 GPUs, some new Corsair PSUs, industry slump in hardware and games, plus all the rest of the back and forth you’ve come to expect from this show.  If that’s the kind of thing you like, you’ve come to the right place.

And no, it didn’t end up being “50 min and 36 sec” after all. Somehow the running time ballooned up to a whopping 50 minutes and 39 seconds between rendering and uploading. Where did the extra 3 seconds come from? ALIENS. (Probably.)

Thank you to our Patreon members both new and current ones that are bumping their patronage!  Could not be doing this without you all!
This show cannot go on without you – you know who you are, please consider helping our efforts. It most definitely helps keep us on the air.  Thank you!

Note: we recorded this BEFORE the Gamers Nexus video on Arc graphics with Tom (and Ryan) from Intel was published. You can watch that here: https://youtu.be/AN8ZAf15DrM
