Podcast #689 – Ryzen 7000 RAM Speed, NVIDIA’s Bad Quarter, Intel Arc Pro GPUs, Hackaday Prizes, Quantum Computing Fail and MORE
News is first, and while it may be mid-August of 2022, NVIDIA had a bad quarter in Q2 2023 already. Not the first thing we’d do if time travel was realized, but it takes all kinds. We also discuss reports of the AMD Ryzen 7000 DDR5 sweet spot, look at some re-purposed retro tech from the 2022 Hackaday Prize winners, and look into Gigabytes replacement for the Z690i Ultra mobo. Plus mandatory Intel Arc news (they went PRO), and the usual ‘gaming quick hits’ and depressing ‘security corner’.
Featured this week is Kent’s third installment in the ‘upgrading in mid-2022’ blog, with further explorations of the major and minor components he chose, and why.
