In this episode of the Full Nerd, Gordon Mah UngBrad Chacos, and Adam Patrick Murray talk about what’s next.

We kick things off by discussing Intel’s surprise 10nm “Sunny Cove” CPU architecture and its next-gen graphics cores, then dig deeper into the details behind Intel’s comeback plans. Chipzilla’s been roused and it feels like this is a whole new Intel. Watch out, world.

After that, the gang delves into rumors and leaks around laptop versions of Nvidia’s RTX graphics—will a mobile RTX 2060 actually include RT cores?—and Corsair’s wonderfully ostentatious fake RGB RAM kit, which gives your rig the look of blinged-out memory modules without, uh, actually including memory in those models. It’s ludicrous but vain PC builders might give it an impulse buy at only $40.

Finally, we wrap things up fielding questions from the viewers that tuned in live.
