Very nice episode as always :) Iyaz sure was in a great mood today.

I have to say that ASUS Transformer Prime with ICS on it is sweet. I got to mess around with my fathers shortly after it was updated and I am thoroughly impressed.

Keplar will be coming out soon and I am sure that AMD will need to drop their prices on those 7970 and 7950 products to compete at that point. Nvidia has outright said they were disappointed with their competition.

Go HotHardware!

I'm really excited about the 7970. Looks to be a very powerful card for being a single gpu. Benchmarks aren't as good as some of the others but I hear it is a lot more quiet and runs cooler.

 

Very nice episode as always!

Good webcast guys!! No complaining....great motto! I'm a huge fan of the prime and I'm really considering picking one up when my laptop dies. I'm also a fan of Llano, it's a great processor for the price. Very cool that they released an unlocked version. I don't like Alienware and I'm not really moved by the new smaller form factor. I'd rather have an internal psu with a little larger case instead of the external power brick.

My gtx580 cried a little, not much, when the amd got released.

I'm really behind on the current contest, looks like a great prize!!! Keep em coming!

Good show guys,.................I really like that 7950 card. There are already several flavors of them out now and with many options to choose from.

I'll wait a while and try to get one or two of them.

@ Realneil you better wait for kepler instead :) which will have a better performance and about the same price :)

I'll eventually buy Kepler too. (for the Intel boxes)

But I'm ~really wanting~ two of these 7950 Radeon Cards for crossfire on my Sapphire 990FX Black Mainboard. I'm trying to work out ways to get it done now.

Finally had a chance to sit and watch.  Thanks for the recaps and I had the same thought as many others on the Alienware system, I was doing a double take thinking I was reading about the "XBOX 720".

The 7000 Series for the AMD Radeons are ridiculous.  OOoo I'll take a cookie :)
