Our grumpy hero is back, and in today's episode Leo has a lot of questions on his mind. He philosophically ponders the state of overclocking – what even is overclocking these days? – while he also discusses the news that Global Foundries has stopped its 7nm development, with AMD switching to TSMC. There's also some drama about Nvidia's RTX cards and how they will be distributed to the press, while we also look at the news out of IFA 2018.
