Podcast #748 – Arc A770 in $2K PCs, AMD Retiring Vega & Polaris, Intel Killed Cryo Cooling, Security Scares + MORE
Ryan may not be back this week, but I’m sure viewers won’t tune out in droves. Right? Right?? Hello??? No one left, eh? Well, we did a podcast anyway. So much ARM, too much for ARC, and AMD Polaris / Vega is forsaken. All that and more in the subjects below.
