Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

Recommended Posts

The old thread in the vBulletin forum got lost in the migration (don't worry I still have access to it and I'll still look at it) so I'm creating a new one.

 

Guidelines

 
 1. Video should be possible to watch in 1-2 minutes.
 2. No elaborate props. If we can't shoot it in the white box with a couple of demonstrative pieces, it's probably not feasible.
 3. Keep it simple! The idea here is to simplify computer concepts to the point where your mom can understand it. Not looking for "how to peel the ramspreaders off your memory"
 
 I will read these suggestions, but I may not reply to this thread very often. That doesn't mean I'm not paying attention, it just means I'm busy creating lots of new video content 
 
 If you haven't heard of Tech Quickie, it's another YouTube channel we run for paid content and the ever-popular "Fast As Possible" series.

Windows Vista vs Windows 7

 

I'd like to hear about the improvements that were made which made 7 such a superior OS even though it used a bunch of material from Vista.

@jmart604 @LinusTech @Slick There's so much discussion in the internet whether Microsoft is doing enough to make its mobile platform survive. So I guess it's only fitting that there's should be "History of Windows Phone as Fast as Possible" which will include the early days of HTC and Compaq Windows Mobile 6.5 phones.

@jmart604 In line with the data privacy horrors Microsoft did, "Telemetry and spying as fast as possible." 

 As it turns out, Creators Update is a little less creepy but still creepy even at basic settings.

How to determine whether a Power Supply is good quality enough for overclocking (mid-range to high-range builds)

 

e.g. Corsair CX 550? EVGA BQ series? EVGA 600B?

PCIe 4.0  Is PCIe on it's way to becoming legacy? Rumblings seem to suggest that people are getting tired of waiting for it and other solutions are in development that could potentially compete with or obsolete it...

 

...are we heading for a future where PCIe is obsolete or at best just an option? Could we be headed for a GPU socket arms race? ...and is it reasonable to expect PCIe 4.0 should arrive on consumer motherboards this year?

I'm interested because I'm thinking my next upgrade would probably be a high-durability SLI-capable PCIe 4.0 capable motherboard, but it seems they may very well never get here.

I actually joined this forum (and subsequently FPC) to ask this:

 

How do modern Intel ULV processors compare to the mobile chips of yesteryear.

 

I wonder this because my laptop (getting a bit long in the tooth) has an i5-3230M, and in the non-gaming thin and light (but still worthy of coding on) market today, everything seems to be ULV, with the same cores, and same clock speed as my 3230M. I know there are new features such as hardware decoding, etc, etc. But in pure task performance, how do these stack up? I've heard that even the 7th generation ULVs can bottleneck streaming 4k, but my 3rd gen M can handle this no problem.

 

Is this just a market segment Intel have forgotten about, or are the U's and Y's of today really viable replacements for the M's of old?

not sure if this was done yet but If it wasn't I think a lot of people would like to see Linus and your staff's favorite items they use computer accessories keyboards monitors systems mice etc..

I dont know if this would be more at home in TechQuickie or LTT. But an easy topic would be to cover how much RAM (i.e. not VRAM) is actually needed for a gaming PC. 

 

There's a small discussion sprouting about it here in a "250GB SSD vs 16GB RAM" thread. Past analysis has shown 4GB performance is nearly identically to 8GB and 16GB in terms of average framerate, but it doesn't capture the 1% or speak to level/asset load times.

Can you do a video on Hadoop and AWS or something in the like? I had to sit through a presentation recently and I feel that i was totally overwhelmed. 

Something along the lines of Cloud computing and how it all interconnects
