Podcast #745 – Intel 14th Gen Launch, New FalconNW Talon, AMD Anti-Lag+ Pulled, Drop+xDuoo TA-84 Tube Amp + MoRe!
Our words flow from us at an alarming rate, but be not afraid; we are the harbingers of semi-literate PC hardware and software discussion. Also, burgers.
In this episode, we discuss the VERY EXCITING Intel 14th Gen launch, look at a very fancy Falcon Northwest Talon desktop equipped with one of these processors, and eventually talk about AMD un-launching Anti-Lag+ after it caused some mildly inconvenient bans from popular games when using the feature. MSI gets hot, Fanatec provides greater steering wheel realism, Windows 11 is too many places, and OneDrive storage scares + a cool tube amp and Total War bronze game review! There’s even a very exciting back and forth on programmable remotes during the SofaBaton pick!
We send out a huge THANK YOU to our generous and ever faithful Patreon members. New folks and current ones that are bumping their patronage are greatly appreciated.
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. And helps Josh buy burgers. Thank you!
