The Full Nerd episode 35: Intel and AMD join forces, reader question extravaganza

Strange times.

In this episode of The Full Nerd, Gordon Mah UngBrad ChacosAlaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray dive deep into the big news shaking the computing world: An Intel CPU with an AMD Radeon GPU inside. Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria! We explain everything we know so far about the chip before wildly speculating why it even exists in the first place.

That segues nicely into the next bombshell: Radeon chief Raja Koduri is now Intel’s graphics chief, in charge of a new group devoted to designing high-end graphics processors for "a broad range of computing segments." That sure came out of nowhere—and Nvidia should watch out.

Believe it or not, Black Friday deals have already started. I guess it’s Black November now? But as depressing as that thought is, some of the deals going around are already damned good. Alaina points out the most appealing discounts.
