00:12 - Elie Saliba: Do you have high hopes for AMD ZEN? Do you also agree on it making or breaking it??
02:33 - Drake Owens: Break out the old crystal ball and tell me what you think will happen with the monitor scene in the next couple of years. I have a 1080p 144hz G-sync 24" TN panel. I wonder what OLED, 4k, HDR and quantum dot tech will mean to me as a gamer when I want to upgrade in a couple of years. I've heard people from Microsoft and NVidia talk a lot about HDR being the 'next big thing'.?
5:14 – dug137: Do you think thermal throttling is becoming a bigger problem with the new high end laptops having desktop gpu/cpu's in them??
6:55 – valgusepoiss: [Edited question] Question! How many fps are used rendering desktop? How is rendering deskt op different from rendering a game? Things can move on desktop too - cursor, icons, notifications, transparent windows and so on... of course with not so many effects as in games.
8:21 - Guillermo Perez: I have a few questions that have been bugging me for quite a while. What is the purpose of pushing and marketing Integrated GPU (Iris/Iris Pro) for the i7 series. Since the i7 is aimed at the high-end user (i.e. gamers) who would for the most part use discrete gpu anyways to run their games. Why waste die space in forcing a function that hign-end users don’t really use? Would it not be better to use that die space for providing additional cores? Especially since the future of more efficient use of multi-cores in games is coming soon (DX12). Or am I totally off-base and we actually do benefit in having integrated GPU in spite of also having discrete gpu… I only see mobile devices and consoles benefitting from this technology.?
10:31 – il2xbox: Hey Steve. As we've kinda hit a wall in terms of CPU performance, since Intel only improves their performance by about a couple % with each new generation and people using Sandy Bridge chips from 5 years ago still use them and they're still plenty fast enough, what do you think Intel and AMD should be focusing on to improve their CPU performance?
13:12 - Leo DS: Oh, come on, no hair questions? Here's one: Why don't you grow a beard to go with the hair? that would look savage.?
That's all for this episode! Remember that PAX East is fast approaching; we'll be on-site talking to all the game devs, publishers, and hardware manufacturers while at the show.
