In this special edition episode of The Full Nerd, Gordon Ung and Adam Patrick
Murray interview Asus's Juan J.
Guerrero about all things motherboards, now that Intel's 12th-gen Alder Lake CPUs and Z690 motherboards are here, complete with support
for the cutting-edge PCIe 5.0 interface and DDR5 memory.
JJ dives deep into what makes Z690 motherboards tick, including
new innovations, features, and the thorniest question of all: Why
are they so expensive? The live audience also asks JJ about ATX12VO motherboards, while the crew talks
about concept PCs and even gets into the DDR5 memory topology of
the new motherboards. It's deeply nerdy, deeply fascinating
