Podcast #725 – Can Storage Save PC Gaming? Allyn Joins Us, Computex Highlights, Flexispot Desk and Monoprice Racing Frame Reviews plus way MORE!

Allyn Malventano joins us for a very special (and storage-centric) episode! We talk about some of the things at Computex that captured our interest, and have an extended discussion about the promise of DirectStorage and how it could solve the GPU VRAM problem (if anyone actually implements it beyond that one game). Plus Jeremy has a fancy new desk to talk about, Josh reviews another racing wheel stand, and much, much more!  (Thanks Allyn!)

Plenty more topics! Scroll down to the time stamps below.
