Longtime gaming journalist and Ryzen X3D curious podcaster Brad Shoemaker joins us to look back on the launch of AMD’s highly anticipated Ryzen 9 7950X3D CPU. The crew discusses why the internet is so aggressive about it, e dispels some misconceptions Speaking of which. Gordon graphically shows you the biggest weaknesses of the vaunted Ryzen 7 5800X3D even compared to the new Ryzen 9 7950X3D. Gordon also reveals why he tested the Intel CPU at DDR5/6000 rather than higher clocked RAM, which had some Intel fans screaming foul.
As a longtime gaming journalist, Brad gives us insight into the state of the industry, the console wars, and the PC versus console. Brad also shares his thoughts on industry consolidation and whether it’s good or bad.
