Hi all,

 

I would like to see a video about the effect of background services that manage updates on gaming performance and if they're the cause of lag spikes. The internet is full of forum post about people that try to stop, remove or have problems with services. Every one seems to hate them, especially when they when they can't be stopped.

 

The idea came to me whilst trying to resolve a bug in our ERP system that gets triggered when background services preform updates or send telemetry data. I've noticed that services that update Office 365, Chrome and Adobe (and probably more) have taks scheduled that run and if needed restart the service every hour.

 

If you ever wondered why Office Click-To-Run.exe keeps starting even when the service set to start manually... Office has scheduled tasks planned to make sure that the service runs al the time... They even found a way to revert any changes to the tasks and when you delete them... it just creates new tasks ?

 

When the Office Click-to-Run service gets launched by these tasks there is a small lag spike and frame dip in Insurgency Sandstorm. So I've set OCTR to start, run 2 minutes then end the service, wait for a half minute and repeat (same method as how I found the bug). I can see  the ping and frame rate spike a little bit. I have 32gb ram with a 3800x and a GTX 1080 so I'm flabbergasted that it's noticeable. 

 

Maybe setup a low, mid and high end PC and set multiple background update services to launch simultaneously during a benchmark. Adobe, Autodesk, Chrome, Office 365 and Solidworks have services that can and will run updates while gaming.

 

I couldn't care less about the privacy. The fact is that applications come with services. BUT I freaking hate that I have no say in how or when they run. 

 

Kind regards,

 

TB.

 

 

ps: Install all the games and the programs to get the services. Make sure the services don't launch or update on login or boot-up. Then time the triggers so you can time them with the benchmark. Disconnect the drive and make a few copies. Wait a few weeks to make sure there are updates and start testing.

Hello, i would love to see a video about virtualisations. Diferences (pros and cons) between ProxMox and for example Xen (not xenServer) or any other popular platform :) Anthony talked about that a little in a few videos. But detailed video could be usefull and enlightening :)

I think voice assistant alternatives like Mycroft could be quite interesting.
 

Are they any good?

In what ways are they (maybe) better than Google Assistant/Alexa/Siri/Bixby?

 

I for myself never heard of any other computer voice apart from these four (except maybe Cortana and Jibo) until i stumbeled upon Mycroft and realized that there are actually other computerized butlers out there. 
I think it's quite the same for a lot of people.

Linus Tech Tips

Hello

 

I know there are a lot of us here who are both gamers and content creators. 

I also know you have made a couple of videos regarding builds for content creators but I think it's time for a new one.

So, my question is could you please make a video about a content creator/light gaming build on a 1500€ budget including monitor?

 

Thanks!

What's up all,

 

I had a great idea for the next scrapyard wars. $1,000 to build with a couple catches. The catches are your build has to include rgb, custom water cooling system(you have to build it from scratch only tubes, pumps, CPU and GPU has to be water cooled as well using store bought metals, fittings, and tubes), and lastly you have to build a case from scratch ( meaning building it completely enclosed using wood or scrap metal with unique airflow designs, and able to take off side panels). With this being said I would say a week to build this and run benchmarks, games benchmarks, lastly CPU and GPU usage percentage. While at standard and overclocked on both CPU and GPU. To find out the winner it would be based off of case design, airflow designs, and water cooling design by judges. The second half is the average of all benchmarks both overclocked and standard. Winner is the highest score of everything tallied up together.

I want to see Linus trying to use Linux as his daily driver for a week. I bet it'd be very interesting ?

No idea if it's been mentioned before, but how about Linus meets Linus? Or, the creator of the most used OS kernel meets the online Tech-dropping Champ :P

 

Although I'm not so sure mr Torvalds would be up for it, from what I understand he doesn't particularly like being the centre of attention, let alone being revered as some sort of tech-god. But it would give Anthony a perfect excuse to hone his Linux skills even further ;)

Could you do a video on some of the best bang for buck monitors/ combination of monitors for productivity? Not everyone needs  <1ms response time monitors with with 240hz refresh rates...

a good video idea would be to explain in more depth the different ssd variants,not just m.2,nvme,sata but also go into differences of mlc,tlc,slc,emlc,qlc,and 3dnand,2d nand,and maybe also go into the controllers of which is fastest and so on,i know for me when i was shopping for a new m.2 drive the research i did was extensive and there is soo much to know about.

A post-mortem regarding the Friday the 13th funday forum problems would be nice too.  Include plenty of jokes about Linus dropping things.

Linus Tech Tips

Dayz is one of those games thats hit and miss with some. YET there’s a new modded server yall should look into.(they’re aboutbto build a dedicated sever) Its “The Apocalypse of Enoch” its based on a book series by the author Shane Moore and there's 3books thats a prequel to the bases of the server. As of now their on dayz, but they have their own standalone in development. A streamer on FB that goes by McG-TV introduced me to all of this great game concept and just wanna show yall the greatness in the making! hope yall could show them some love even if its just advise!!!

Hi! 

I've registered onto your forum especially to ask you this one question :  I know from older videos that Linus is a fan of UnRaid, and so am I.  About the only "downside" UnRaid has (because of the way it works) is that its throughput speeds are not mindblowing, not compared to a regular Raid array anyway.  But IMO about everything else is better, especially for home users and maybe even small businesses.

 

But then I started to wonder : now that SSD prices have dropped a lot in the last couple of years, it's slowly becoming interesting to consider using SSD's for use in the disk array (not only as the cache drive!).

So I would love to see Linus make a network speed comparison between :

1. A classic Unraid system with all winchester drives.

2.  A classic Unraid system with winchester drives for its array and SSD's for cache

3. An Unraid system with only SATA600 2.5" SSD's

4. An UnRaid system with only NVMe SSD's.

 

Of course all tested with 10 Gbe cards...  as far as I can see, nobody has ever done this before.

I'm curious to see if this would work, and how much difference it would make.  Sure, this would make the server about 5 to 6 times as expensive, but as a home user I'm not looking for hundreds of Terabytes of storage anyway, so this just might be worth it...

 

Cheers!
