Very nice Episode as always! Great analysis on the Pascal and Titan Z but comes to my mind is that why their isn't released together at the same time would of been a Awesome Dynamic Duo! in crime. Oh! Nice Shave Marco And Oh My Gosh Those IRON MAN POSTERS BRO!!! Kick *** DUDE! Wish I had one xD!!!

@JefferyPruett - Heh. I got bored with the blank wall behind me and moved some of my Avengers artwork into the frame. One is Cap, the other is (obviously) Iron man. Those are actually painted onto sheets of glass--it's a really cool style. I had them made my an artist names C.J. Draden. You can see some of his stuff here: http://www.cjdradenstore.com/

Thanks for the link buddy really appreciate it...I was browsing around and there is tons of artwork that really interest me. Then I went to his facebook and saw some wicked photography of him aswell...really looks like a guy who takes very much pride in his work and I believe that what makes a artist and yeah my mistake about Cap I was really just blinded and amazed xD

Oh I love this. Super interested in the first 20 minutes because of the NVIDIA stuff, but the whole video was great. Loved just being able to catch up on everything in one video. I never saw this Two and a Half Geeks before but I'm subscribing to the YouTube channel so I don't miss another. That Titan Z is just amazing. I went back and watched that Unreal Engine 3 demo video again because of this lol. Awesome stuff! I can't wait for the Maxwell is is more widely utilized by Nvidia. The 750Ti is the only current card with it correct?

CJ is REALLY cool. I met him at Comic Con in NYC after I had ordered these two pieces. He was actually interviewed by Whoopi Goldberg and briefly appeared on "The View" when they covered the show in NY. He'll make whatever you want too. I think I'll be ordering up a Thor piece next, but that'll probably be the end for me. The rest of the Avengers I'll probably just get prints.

Given the announcement of Pascal by Nvidia and NVLink, I'm surprised not much has been made by people whether or not Intel would welcome it given the fact that they may want to bring some variant of OPCIe to mainstream consumers(http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/research/intel-labs-silicon-photonics-optical-pci-express-server.html)

Will they be at odds with one another, given the fact both technologies both being on the same motherboard seems unfeasible? 

Either way, it sort of makes it interesting what this all means for PCIe4 adoption; of course OPCIe and NVLink doesn't mean it's D.O.A.'d.
