'Graphics cards are bringing sexy back': Girt by CNET podcast 72

From 4K Blu-ray, Foxtel's record-breaking Thrones premiere, Uncharted 4 and Pokemon, right through to one of the best looking gaming laptops we've seen and, apparently, the world's most exciting GPU.


This week saw the arrival of Australia's first 4K Blu-ray player thanks to Samsung, and along with it came the awareness that right now there are only six movies available on the format in Australia. That's some slim pickings, but we can safely say that on the right TV, they'll look better than anything you've seen before.

On the flipside of our triumphant return to physical media is Foxtel's news that they've broken all their own records when it comes to "Game of Thrones" viewership with over 1.2 million people watching the premiere episode of season 6.

Over in the world of gaming, Uncharted 4 is out and looking incredible while a new Pokemon is on the way, which is proving somewhat mystifying even to the big Pokemon fans on the Girt by CNET Team.

But there's a lot of consensus about the Razer Blade Stealth which just launched in Australia. We loved it at CES and the super-light laptop, with its optional external graphics card add-on to power it up for gaming, looks just as good in the flesh. On the topic, the resident PC gamers in the group explain why Nvidia's GTX 1080 is pretty much the greatest thing ever invented. Apparently.
