The Full Nerd ep 208: Steam Deck reactions and Nvidia…

In this episode of The Whole Nerd, Gordon Ung, Brad Chacos, and Adam Patrick Murray mull reactions to Valve’s Steam Deck, malware disguised as a resource to unlock comprehensive mining abilities on Nvidia graphics playing cards, and a new chiplet regular.

The preliminary Valve Steam Deck opinions are last but not least in, and no shock, they are a minor mixed. Inspite of this, the crew has significant-hopes for the spectacular handheld video game Computer console. From there, the crew moves on to the outdated adage that if it appears far too superior, it in all probability is. That is the lesson people today are finding out from a hotly anticipated mod that promised to clear away Nvidia’s Lite Hash Rate crypto-mining limit on more recent GPUs, but as a substitute provides a payload of malware.

To close the display out, Gordon, Brad, and Adam kick all-around the new Universal Chipset Interconnect Specific common that outdated enemies will concur to use on new CPUs.
