The Full Nerd ep. 61: Core i9-9900K rumors, AMD B450 motherboards, and new GeForce GPUs?

It's looking like a busy fall for CPUs and GPUs. Maybe.

In this episode of the Full Nerd, Gordon Mah UngBrad ChacosAlaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray get hyped for a fantastic fall for hardware nerds, talking about hot new gear coming—maybe?—from Nvidia, Intel, and AMD.

Yes, Nvidia. After a long two-year drought the next generation of GeForce graphics cards may finally be imminent, if Nvidia’s “Gaming Celebration” at Gamescom is any indication. We’ve been disappointed before though, so dig into other clues that hint towards this finally, truly being the big reveal, and what we know about the new GeForce cards so far. (It ain’t much.)

AMD launched new B450 motherboards this week. What’s different from existing B350 boards? Gordon explains everything you need to know. And finally, the gang examines leaked performance benchmarks for Intel’s rumored first 8-core processors, the Core i7-7700K and Core i9-9900K—rumors that suddenly seem a lot more concrete since MSI just confirmed 9th-gen Core processors that Intel hasn’t announced yet.

Well. Uh. That’s awkward. Anyway, as always, we wrap things up with questions from viewers.
