About this Episode

Computer hardware is hard, so let's talk about RAM, disk speeds and eGPUs.

Just because you rely on a computer for your job, doesn't mean you understand how it works. Olaf Blomerus came on so we could explore all the things we know and wish we knew about computer hardware. Whether you're on Mac or Windows, desktop or laptop, you're always better off having a deeper understanding of your machine. We cover when you need more RAM, who can benefit from more powerful graphics cards, multi-code vs single thread, and more.

This is especially a must listen for anyone who edits video, photos or 3D and has been forced to wait on their computer when it seems like you shouldn't have to.

Or it's the perfect episode if you're about to buy a new computer. We also talk about some of the details of my new MacBook Pro, which was a grueling process to configure. It had to be perfect!
