In this week’s The Full Nerd, Gordon Mah UngBrad ChacosAlaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray discuss what the long-awaited arrival of the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition means for PC gamers—even though it isn’t meant for PC gamers. The wait is finally over, yet it still continues.

After that things get reallyinteresting, as we jump into AMD’s monstrous new 16-core Threadripper CPUs (seriously, 16 cores) before gossiping about the Intel “Core i9” Skylake-X processors rumored to counter the latest Ryzen threat. Are we crazy enough to spit out some early pricing predictions? You know it.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
