In this episode of The Full Nerd, Gordon Ung, Alaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray dive into the supposed leaks surrounding AMD’s upcoming RDNA2 (“Big Navi”) video cards, Nvidia’s new Smart Portrait filter for Photoshop, and Sony’s teardown of its PlayStation 5 console.

Big Navi might be huge—a supposed leak, revealed on Twitter, teases a top-tier card with monstrous specs. (One of the more tantalizing bits: an average clock speed of 2.4GHz during gaming.) Gordon picks apart the nuances of the numbers and puts it into perspective against Nvidia’s RTX 30-series cards.

Equally exciting for photographers is Nvidia’s AI-powered tool for Photoshop, which will allow faster adjustments to gaze direction and lighting angles. If you’ve ever taken a group shot and had to deal with that one person looking at the wrong camera, you’ll understand Gordon’s enthusiasm for this new filter.

Finally, we take a tour within the interior of the PlayStation 5, which Sony tore down in advance of the console’s November launch. As you might expect, the age-old debate about building a PC or buying console cropped up... but not in the way you might think. Adam has built a $500 PC instead of buying a console! (Stay tuned for future livebuilds where Alaina will build PCs that attempt to match the new consoles’ specs.)

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
