    Show Notes

    Given that we have entered the dog days of summer there isn’t much happening in the hardware world.  Typically this episode would feature a Computex 2020 debrief however considering the current pandemic situation the organizers decided it was best to cancel the show this year.  Sadly, there is very little on the GPU front, Intel already released their 10th generation CPUs and AMD, well is being AMD.

    In this episode we thought it would be fun to look back on how computer hardware was back in 2009.  From the enthusiast perspective this was a great time for computer hardware as manufacturers put considerable effort into building great products.  Overclocking was a major driver and custom builds and casemodding was a common hobby. 

    To take a look down memory lane we pulled up some old articles and reviews.  Most of this information is still available online so check out the details using the links below.
