    I reckon you should have added links to each of the reviews for the items.

    I do not think quad core should win best innovation award as it is the next logical step, and Intel is just going for the GHz race again, but this time with number of cores.
    Loved the podcast and can't wait till the next one.
    Overall you have it spot on :thumb:

    I thought that the point was Intel had learned thier lesson from the GHz wars of A64 / Netburst ect.

    I think most people would like a fast CPU with a Low TDP than some gargantuanly got CPU reminisant of a Pentium D EE 840 or 670 ect.

    Well we thought they did, but it seems as thought they are going again, I mean 80 cores? Really? How many cores does a GPU have, and how much can you do with it (I know dedicated Proccessor) But I would prefer a better architecture (Like the core architecture) Rather than millions of 'em.

    I agree with Oblivion, that game is awsome, but still not as good as Morrowind.

    In the category of RPG, I just descovered Lost Wishes...

    Anyone with telnet can play it, just connect to "lost.wishes.net 5555" and you're going ;) Text Based RPG rulez them all :D

    I agree on the Quad core not being the best innovation... Quad just seems so pointless...

    And I'm missing an OSS part too ;)

    Isn't that called a MUD?


    I think console should have been split into handheld and console awards as loco roco isn't in the same leage as gears of war.

    No offense but giving Loco Roco the GOTY award is quite simply astonishing.

    Not sure I agree on the cooling solution at all. I thought the sonic tower was generally considered the best option out there right now, and to think the Artic-Cooling Freezers didn't even get a mention!!

    Other than that, spot on.
    Nicely done.

    Yeah I'd say the core architecture is more or an innovation than sticking two core 2 duo processors together but the quad core processor is still pretty awesome, wanting to get myself one of those at some point.

    CM Stacker for best case of the year? Ewww

    Ye not sure on the Quad Core, the Gigabyte, the CM Stacker or Loco Roco tbh

    Deffo with C2D tho - awesome platform props to intel.

    Suprised 8800 didn't get a mention as that's deffo been a revelation this year (albeit at the end)

    I agree, the Arctic Cooling solutions not even getting a peep round the door seems unbelievable. They seem to be fairly popular.. as well as the Scythe Ninja - hsf of choice for Core2Duo. Just seems a bit strange.

    I thought the g80 was by far the most innovative. I thought it just be a one-up on the x1950xtx, but it's the 9800 pro pretty much. It's been many moons since one card could play all the current games at max settings, and the transition to 80nm will improve everything about it.

    The "quad core" chip is like the 7950 gx2 or AMD's4x4 platform, bullocks. I'm not against multiple cores at all, but the G80 is simply reinventing graphics.. Instantly owning the PS3 or X-crotch.

    As far as the core2 sieres go's, in my opinion, it took intel way to long to expand on the pentium M architecture, and they only beat AMD by 66mhz.
