After far too long, the AnandTech Podcast is back just in time for the biggest consumer electronics show of the year, CES 2015. This year we have lined up an all-star cast of AnandTech staff to cover the entire show, from PC to SoC and everything in between.

We kick things off with Intel's just-launched Broadwell-U family of CPUs before switching sides to AMD and looking at their FreeSync adaptive-synchronization technology and forthcoming Carrizo APUs. Then it’s all about vendors, including Asus and their new ZenFones and Windows 8 Chi 2-in-1s, MSI and their latest GT80 and GS30 laptops, and Lenovo with the shockingly light LaVie laptop. Not to be outdone, Dell also has their new XPS 13 and Alienware machines on display, all the while Occulus once again steals the show with their impressive “Crescent Bay” headset prototype. Finally in the home stretch we take a look at all things mobile, including Microsoft’s latest Lumia devices, the Snapdragon 810 powered LG Flex 2, and NVIDIA’s Tegra X1.

    Whilst I do not want to say anything bad about you guys, it will be weird listening to the podcast and not hearing Anand or Dr. Klug's voices.

    There is no Dr. Klug -- only Dr. Ian Cutress. The rest of us were far less dedicated to our studies I think. :-)

    D'oh. Find & replace has let me down.

    Thank you very much! It's been too long since the last Anandtech podcast.

    Some mentioned that the Dell Venue 8 7000 is not shipping, I think you can buy them now at Best Buy and Dell.

    That was me I'm sure -- and it's one of many small errors that slipped into the podcast. CES tends to be such a whirlwind that trying to keep track of what's available and what is "coming soon" is often very difficult. Anyway, the price point is definitely high, but if you're buying a Dell laptop you might be able to get one at a much lower price in the future.
