This is the official podcast of Maximum PC. Tune in!yeshttp://www.maximumpc.com/spark_podcast/4/Maximum PCFuture US, Inc.ops-us@futureus.comNo BS Podcast #238: GTA V on PC, Linux, and Apple Watchhttp://www.maximumpc.com/no-bs-podcast-238-gta-v-pc-linux-and-apple-watch/ We also say adios to technical editor Tom McNamara. In episode 238 of the No BS Podcast , we tackled a number of hot issues that include the PC release of GTA V and what it looked like in 4k using three Titan Xs . We then switched over to Linux's chicken-or-the-egg problem with proprietary software and paying customers. In addition, with Apple Watch coming out, we talk about that (we figure you might want to hear our thoughts on the subject). We also had to say farewell to Tom McNamara, who will be leaving Maximum PC at the end of the week. Alex says he's going to miss letting the air out of Tom's tires. C'est la vie. In all seriousness, we're going to miss Tom and wish him well. And, finally, as always, we take time to answer some reader questions.

This jam-packed podcast brings the Maximum PC crew together to talk about several important topics which include the recent reveal of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980 , Haswell-E , Microsoft’s $2.5 billion Minecraft acquisition , Windows 9 , and 5K monitors.

In a bit of a surprise to us, AMD and Origin PC wanted to come into the podcast room together for episode 231 of the No BS Podcast . As you may recall, this pairing is kind of surprising considering that last October, Origin PC’s co-founder and CEO Kevin Wasielewski announced that the company would be dropping AMD graphics cards from its systems , stating, “This decision was based on a combination of many factors including customer experiences, GPU performance/drivers/stability, and requests from our support staff.” He then later added, “Based on our 15+ years of experience building and selling award winning high-performance PCs, we strongly feel the best PC gaming experience is on Nvidia GPUs.” Well, not only did we get Wasielewski in the room, but we also got AMD’s VP of Global Channel Sales Roy Taylor and AMD’s Director of Public Relations Chris Hook to come on. In the show, the two parties settle their past dispute with Taylor suggesting that AMD is now committed to giving hardware partners like Origin PC more support and communication. In the podcast, he outlines some of the strategies to do so. Wasielewski also confirmed that you can now get AMD video cards in Origin PCs again and shot down any rumors that Nvidia was compensating Origin PC to slander AMD late last year when the announcement came about. Taylor also asserts that AMD’s graphics drivers have gotten a lot better over the past year, but admits this wasn’t always the case and that the company is still getting burned by that bad reputation. While Gordon was away on vacation, he did submit several questions for the rest of the crew to ask on the air, and in the show we cover a ton of ground from topics that range from: The possibility of 5-way GPU support AMD’s renewed commitment to battling Intel at the high-end CPU market AMD’s plans to start using DDR4 Origin PC and AMD’s thoughts on Valve’s upcoming Steam Machine initiative AMD’s take on the Oculus Rift /VR Freesync monitor availability Why AMD is getting into the SSD market AMD’s presence (or lack thereof) in the laptop/gaming notebook segment 20nm GPUs And then we of course top it off with your fan questions! The old format isn’t going away, and Gordon’s rants will return, but in the meantime, give this episode a listen, and let us know what you think!

On episode #230 of the No BS Podcast , Jimmy and Tom are joined by Kingston’s Senior Technology Manager Mark Tekunoff, Public Relations Manager David Leong, and Reverb Communications Public Relations Director Douglass Perry. In the short half-hour podcast, we look at the company’s new HyperX Cloud headset and discuss the fairly recent “bait and switch” SSD controversy in which synchronous NAND was later swapped out with slower asynchronous NAND on retail shelves. We also talk about the future of DDR4, particularly in regards to pricing, yields, and performance.

This week on episode 227 of the No BS Podcast , the Maximum PC crew came together to chat about a supposed leak of Haswell-E specs and weigh the likelihood of a Windows 9 release this year.

For those unfamiliar with the AMD exec, Huddy has spent time working at ATI, AMD, Nvidia, Intel, and is now back at AMD. He’s also widely considered one of the pioneers of DirectX. Suffice it to say, he knows his stuff. In this special edition of the podcast, we pick his brain on a variety of topics relating to AMD. Easily the most exciting part of the discussion is the fact that Huddy doubles down on AMD’s assertion that Nvidia Gameworks presents a threat to PC gamers , most notably by adding lines of code to games that would hinder performance on AMD graphics cards (It’s some pretty damning assertions). We also talk about the recent controversy surrounding the PC version of Watch Dogs, discuss Mantle vs DirectX, AMD’s answer to Nvidia Gsync, 4K, and the future of graphics/graphics cards.

This week, on episode 225 of the No BS podcast , the Maximum PC gang gathered to flap their lips to wonder if it’s time to ask if Steam Machines are losing steam and spill detail’s on Intel’s Pentium “K” and Devil’s Canyon parts. The crew also talks abou the possibility of cheap 4K monitors and ponders if any of them would actually want to run a 4K monitor at home over a standard 1080P panel. There’s also a lively discussion about why HP would put Android on a its new laptop and if Chromebooks are “worthless.” That plus staff picks, questions from readers, and a full helping of bile and sarcasm from one of Gordon’s signature rants.

We also tackled reader questions, one of which was about the systems we used at home. So if anyone else was on the edge of their seat and waiting for this information, your day has finally arrived. Also, with Gordon unavailable, we had Chris do his rant at the end. We'll let you judge the results. Note: We're having our video-editing monkey slave away at editing the video. Provided he doesn't keel over, we'll embed it as soon as we can!

This week the crew tackles a wide variety of topics that include: - Leaked Ivy Bridge-E benchmarks - AMD unveils its official AMD 7990 video card - Corsair 350D (aka the 900D mini) - New Ubuntu 13.04 arrives - Macbook Pro as the best Windows laptop ? - Our Editor's Picks - This random video of actor Michael Shannon reading this insane letter from a crazy sorority girl - And rants from Gordon!

I liked those episodes of all the rants from the past year cut up into one." – user steven4570 Catzilla has nothing on Gordzilla Well, steven4570, be careful what you wish for because we listened and have unleashed hell's wrath…or at least Gordon's. Yes, that's right, we have assembled all of Gordon's rants from 2012 and have compiled them into one rant-fest that shall be known as Maximum PC's No BS Podcast episode #197 . In this retrospective edition, Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung rages over such topics such as Star Wars, Apple, and consoles. The rants were plucked from episode #182 all the way up to episode #193. It is almost three hours long so if you've got a weak stomach for passionate hatred, you may want to listen in small doses! If you have feedback for the show, please leave it in the comments.

We share because we care What's this? A new podcast already? Well, that's just how much we love you. And it gets us out of the salt mine for about an hour and a half. Not that benchmarking GTX Titans all day is a hard-knock life. In No BS podcast episode 196 , we rotated in our trusty intern Chris, giving Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang and Editor-in-Chief Katherine Stevenson some time to plot writing assignments and other devious shenanigans. This time around our hot topics include: - GeForce Titan performance - Windows Blue rumors - Google Glass - Intel's Clovertrail+ CPU And we can't forget editor's picks for software, hardware apps and whatnot: - Chris Zele: GParted Live , an ISO for managing storage drive partitions. - Tom McNamara: Corsair Neutron GTX , a 240GB solid-state drive. - Gordon Ung: Slimdrivers , a program that helps keep your drivers up-to-date. - Josh Norem: Pocket , for saving Web pages to read later, and on other devices. We also took a few questions and comments from the Twitters and Facebooks and nearly managed to answer them! Also, we did some fiddling with the Ares II (the liquid-cooled card from Asus with two Radeon 7970 GPUs on it) after this podcast was recorded, and we ended up getting some much better performance. It's actually a very cool and quiet performer, so disregard our comments about it being loud. It is the opposite of loud. If you have feedback for the show, please leave it in the comments.

Gathered at the round table were Editor-in-Chief Katherine Stevenson, Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung, Senior Editor Josh Norem and "FNG" editor Tom McNamara. We merrily discussed the following topics: - Intel’s NUC - AMD to “remain stable” through 2013 - GeForce Titan Rumors (Note: we recorded this podcast before the Titan's official announcement ) - Surface Pro reviews We also surveyed the table for our Editor Picks, which are cool pieces of software, tips and tricks and stuff we think is awesome. Here were our choices: Tom McNamara: The Coupon App for Android – for the coupon clipper inside you Katherine Stevenson – KeePass – saves all your passwords safely and allows easy access Josh Norem – GkrellM – a handy desktop system monitor for a wide-range of functions, including hard drive/SSD bandwidth Gordon Ung – Abstained, was too focused on his upcoming rant.

Sorry about that. To make up for it Deputy Editor Gordon Ung, Intern Chris Zele, Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang, and Editor Josh Norem have pulled together to answer a backlog of reader questions in No BS Podcast #192 (Warning: we use "adult language"…a lot). First we yank a few questions from the voicemail inbox, and then we tackle questions from twitter, and then finally face questioning on Facebook. After the Q/A session, Gordon steps up onto his soapbox and delivers an impassioned plea regarding tablets. It’s an hour and a half of nothing but your questions and Gordon’s untreated psychosis.

We share because we care (Ah, aren't we sweet?). Here are our individual picks this time around: Picks of the Week Katherine: Qualys BroswerCheck – Scan your web browser for vulnerabilities in the browser or its plug-ins, then easily fix whatever issues it finds. Gordon: Gas Buddy app – Find cheap gas anywhere you go with this free app for Android, Blackberry and iPhone. Josh: Convert a 3TB drive to GPT to access its full capacity. If you have a drive that is larger than 2TB, Windows might not be able to recognize the extra capacity. You can access the full capacity on one partition though if you convert the disk from MBR to GPT. This video shows you how easy it is. Jimmy: League of Legends – A super popular MOBA game that Jimmy dares to say is better than Valve's Dota 2. Follow us Remember to bookmark us into your favorite browser.

Right? Episode 186 of the No BS Podcast finds Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung and Senior Editor Nathan Edwards trapped together in the podcasting studio, trying not to freak out. We couldn't avoid talking about the new MacsBook Pro and Air (just a little bit), but then get back to our roots with talk of three Z77 motherboards, some trouble in SSD-land, Origin vs Steam smack talk, and more Windows 8 thoughts. Baby Duck Syndrome! Design patents! "It's all, what do you call it, subjective." Nathan reports back from his trip to the Palo Alto Microsoft Store, we wave goodbye to the old Lab, introduce our new benchmark suite, and give just a few hints about this year's Dream Machine. Nathan rebuilds his home machine for no good reason, Gordon mixes up the Brat and the Rat Pack, and we argue about whether we even need optical drives anymore. Gordon rants about the internet dying, constant superhero movie reboots, and government-funded superhero teams. By the way, if you haven't picked up the Humble Bundle V , you have less than a day! And, of course, much more. So much we should probably start keeping notes or something. Tune in next time; we'll have guests! Guests to fill the gaping hole in our hearts and podcasts.

We also spend time weighting the merits of the EU-Intel case, and analyze the implications of Windows 7 and Larrabee replease dates. Gordon gives advice to advertising agencies for Microsoft and Apple, and delivers a fuming rant of the week. Did we see the return of the Dark Knight 2.0? Download the podcast to find out!

Everybody shares their thoughts on the new Windows 7 RC, and discuss the merits of Amazon's Kindle DX. Listeners call in to ask about file permission problems ( a solution found here ), and we all lament the passing of 3D Realms. Also, no rant of the week this time as Gordon was out last week, but Norm gives try at expressing his rage toward the new Wolverine film. Apologies for the late post, but stay tuned this week for a special episode where Gordon reveals his reaction to the Star Trek movie. Did he love it or loathe it? Place bets now!

While working out the unending technical difficulties of broadcasting live to a web audience, the gang chats about this past week's tech news. Windows 7 is again a hot topic, with rumors of a late October release date and our analysis of the hyped up XP compatibility mode. Will contemplates buying the new Palm Pre, and we all agree that the struggling PDA company is making a huge mistake by limited the number of launch units. We also answer a few listener questions, bash micro-blogging, and enjoy Gordon's rant of the week. Tune in to just the audio or watch our video stream ! Do you have a tech question? A comment?

Technical difficulties aside, we had just about 50 people tune in to watch the gang discuss this week's news topics and get angry over CNBC's Jim Goldman's idiotic report on the Mac vs PC battle. We also go over AMD's new Phenom announcements, Intel price cuts, and take a few listener questions. Gordon's rant returns to form with a special take on the popularity of twitter, and his solution to narcissistic tweets.Download the MP3 to listen in, and sync up the audio with the video on our UStream channel .

After some careful calculations, we've discovered that we are actually still technically on the 99th episode of the No BS Podcast. That means that we have no choice by to save our 100th episode spectacular until next Friday. We sincerely apologize for the wait, but in the meantime, Will, Nathan and Gordon bring you another lengthy and informative QA session in episode 99A (and the return of Gordon's rant of the week). Your patience will be rewarded handsomely! We also have come into posession of a ton of SteelSeries keyboards and headsets, speaker systems, and even more t-shirts to give away in our weekly Twitter contest.

We also report on Seagate's SATA 6Gb/s interface test (it's fast!) and share our thoughts about HP's Firebird hybrid PC. On the rant of the week, Gordon lets loose on people who use facebook as an outlet to complain about their jobs, and explains why he thinks Spock was also full of rage. We also take a few listener questions, making a gaming mouse recommendation and discus the browser war. We'll be taking a short break from podcasting as various members of the staff go on vacations, but will be back in three weeks for our 100th episode. Stay tuned! Do you have a tech question?

Will and Gordon drop their two cents on the Intel-Nvidia feud, and the team lays out the benefits on Vista SP2. Will also shares his experience debating MacLife’s Robbie Baldwin on the ABC News Now cable show. Along with listener questions, Gordon’s rant of the week also returns, filled with more rage than ever. This week’s targets: Shakespeare, Microsoft Outlook and office thievery.

Live broadcast? video podcast? Only time will tell. But this week, the more pressing issue is the complete absence of the senior members of the staff. With Will and Gordon MIA (possibly off to renewal), the podcast is helmed by a crew of fresh face editors -- the 25 and under club. The gang discusses Intel's new dispute with Nvidia, Boxee's divorce with Hulu, and the ongoing Pirate Bay trial. Everybody shares their personal list of essential Windows apps, and we try to answer a few listener questions (mostly unsuccessfully). But even without Gordon's wisdom and rage, a rant finds its way into episode 97 . Do you have a tech question? A comment? A tale of technological triumph? Just need to get something off your chest?

That's the big topic of debate on this week's edition of the No BS Podcast . The gang tackles the usefulness of kitchen-based PCs, Intel's 32nm chip announcement, and field criticisms from readers who call in about our anti-deer remarks. We also discuss our predictions for the future of graphics technology and when we expect game visuals to reach photorealism. All that and Gordon's rant of the week in this week's episode!

We certainly can't, as indicated by the large stack of HD DVD movies sitting on our shelves. But some of the attendees at this year's TED (technology, entertainment, design) conference are professional futurists -- men and women who can intuit the next hundred years of human and technological development. Their predictions, along with the other presentations at TED are among the many topics of discussion on this week's podcast . The gang also talks about Core i7 overclocking and the revival of one of our most beloved gaming franchises. All that plus Gordon's rant in our 95th podcast.

The gang discusses this week's news events, including an amazing U-Haul police chase that we watched live online, and the Google Streetview truck's encounter with a hapless fawn.
