This episode of the podcast is rife with Sandy Bridge talk. Our panel spends a good chunk of the podcast responding to Sandy Bridge-related listener questions, studying the results from our latest poll, and discussing our review of Intel's Core i7-2820QM-powered desktop replacement notebook. (Because we recorded last week, however, we weren't able to address the chipset bug Intel announced on Monday.)
Taking a break from the Intel coverage, Scott and Geoff pick apart Nvidia's newly released GeForce GTX 560 Ti, comparing it to the competition from AMD and going over the various implementations from different vendors. The panel also delves into some game coverage, talking about the upcoming releases of Portal 2 and Duke Nukem Forever. Other discussion topics include our CES experiences in Las Vegas and, to round off the episode, a debate about the merits of stereoscopic 3D in movies and games.
