    I want the testing to be completed in our offices, since there's the full facilities + hardware here - that's why I said Berkshire area. It's a pain having various bits of hardware all over the country and I honestly don't know how we managed in the past. :)

    Shame Berkshire is just SLIGHTLY too far for me (about 60 miles) otherwise this is something that I would at least apply for. Dang!

    ::edit:: Actually. It depends on where in Berkshire it is as some of it (Bracknell) is actually viable at just 53 miles.

    If you're willing to cover your travelling to/from our offices, that's fine. Rich (Bindi) travels down from Oxford to come and help with the motherboard reviews, for example. :)


    Do you have an understanding of 3D technology? i.e. do you know the difference between a pixel shader, a vertex shader and a ROP. We're looking for someone that isn't a complete novice when it comes to the tech behind the products - we want you to have a reasonable understanding of how the hardware actually works.

    It's in Ascot.

    Cool, Well Im sure cost wont be that much of a big issue it's just that I personally don't drive but im sure there are Trains and other mentods of transport.

    I have a basic idea at how most hardware works, tho Im sure some detailed reading into the subjects would be usefull.

    Ok. Well i'll look into seeing how viable it is to get there by the usual methods of transport.
