The PC industry is teeming with hype. New products and technologies arrive in a flurry of facts and figures extolling their virtues--and often over-selling their benefits. The ASUS Straight Edge podcast cuts through the marketing to focus on what really matters to users. We’re here to answer your questions and bring you the straight story on new tech.
Hosts Geoff Gasior and Rajinder Gill have a combined 25 years of experience in the industry. A PC user from an early age, Geoff spent 15 years writing about technology and reviewing hardware for The Tech Report before joining ASUS. Rajinder has been a PC enthusiast for decades; he got his start in the industry writing reviews for AnandTech before moving to ASUS. We’re both passionate about PCs and the technology behind them, and we’ll be joined by guests who can contribute their own unique insights.
Over the next few months, we’ll tackle interesting tech topics on a podcast hosted right here on OCN. To kick things off, the first episode will cover Skylake and the Z170 platform – including some of your questions. Whether you want to know about features, overclocking, setup, or anything else, please post your questions below. We’ll aim to answer as many as we can!
