Hardware Podcast 5 - Core i5 and i7, Radeon HD 5870

The fifth (or first) Hardware Podcast sees the chaps talk about Intel's Core i5 and i7 LGA1156 processors and they're stupid naming convention. And discuss why maybe it won't seem so stupid in a few month's time. Also up for debate is the HD 5870, the Asus Mars graphics card and Nvidia's odd drivers.

You might need to be a bit patient about iTunes picking this up, as we've only just recorded it and iTunes only polls the servers a few times a day.

I'm really enjoying these recent podcasts, they're informative and it's nice to hear the voices and get a sense of the personalities of bit-tech's staff.

On another note, rather disturbingly after the last one which I finished listening to this morning, I couldn't help but wonder if 'adding wolves' would have made my lunchtime client meeting far more entertaining...

very nice podcast, i like the new numbering system.

i knew it, Intel and nVidia are employing the same marketing people

Windows 7 RTM pro here, dxdiag says it's running DirectX 11.

"blowing student loan on new PC's".
LOL, i did that second year, and 3rd year blow first term money on gtx260. and this is my 4th year, waiting for Dx11 cards

I've got a theory......
It's the only logical way I can explain Intel calling some of the Lynnfield CPU's Core i7 instead of i6.
When they move to 32nm, they'll call them i6 and i8 to differentiate between the manufacturing processes.

Nope, the 32nm Clarkdale CPUs are going to be branded i5 and i3 when they arrive in January (with the i3 being cheaper and not having Turbo mode).

I can't see them having more than 3 brands for a single CPU cycle/architecture TBH, that's too confusing even for Intel.

In that case Intel are just being stubborn and stupid.
