Maybe a techquickie on hardware drivers and how/when to update them, or

native vs simulated resolutions, or

cat 5 vs cat 5e vs cat 6 ethernet and how to take advantage of them, or

the importance/impact of dusting your computer and how to do it

Here's an idea @jmart604, "Why did 3D on TVs and smartphones flopped?'

 

Back in 2010 and 2011, there's quite the buzz about having stereoscopic 3D displays in TVs and smartphone displays. In fact, smartphone OEMs like HTC (HTC Evo 3D) and LG (LG Optimus 3D) tried to address the lack of 3D content by having an additional sensor at the rear camera that can shoot and record 3D pictures and video. But why did it failed? Is 3D on a TV and a phone dead forever?


There is more that meets the eye

Avoiding Common PC Building Traps - Episode 4. Please. I seriously enjoyed your series on that subject. I never wanted it to end. (And also, put some Star Wars references here (and I'm not calling the original Star Wars "A New Hope")).

Emulation consoles, emulation, and the law.  There seem to be misconceptions about it.  Maybe go into companies caring vs the law caring?  For example, Beem! got a lot of attention from Sony, but the makers of it won the suit because they didn't actually copy the bios.

Intel naming scheme as fast as possible. 

 

I'm not new to computers yet I still have this issue all the time. To me personally, it seems like there are way too many things to call an intel cpu.

X-gen? broadwell? Haswell. These names seem arbitrary to me. 

 

For example a core i7-5820k. 

Core i7 makes sense, sorta.

5xxx makes sense denoting that is a 5th gen cpu.

but then the next number x8xx?

and... the last two digits seem the most arbitrary to me 

also where does broadwell, broadwell-E, skylake come in?

and oh man the Whole CPU is different if theres a letter at the end. All I know is K and X. 

 

At work I hear all the time about broadwell and skylake and haven't the slightest clue what they are. I also see S,Q, HK, TE, HQ after some the cpus. I know theres already a video about this but I still don't get it. I would like to see a more in depth video about this.

 

p.s. sorry for the rant.

80PLUS certifications real life differences


Investigating real life differences between "non-metal" - bronze - silver - gold - platinum - titanium power supply units.

  • Can you trade a higher certification for a bit lower wattage? (not going below actual power drawn (ie 600W vs 750W on a system that draws 550W))
  • Can a lower certification PSU with a higher (overkill) wattage compansate for dirty power or similar?
  • Does lower/non certification PSUs draw a noticable higher wattage? will a higher certification save you money vs cost in the long run?
  • is a higher certification quieter at load (fan running/speed)
  • Does anything over gold certification matter for stability or the longevity of your parts?


 


Have you tried to perform a sudden temporary interrupt of the electricity flow to your computational device followed by a re-initialization procedure of the central processing unit and associated components?

PCIe 2.0. What is the most powerful GPU you can put in a 2.0 PCIe slot before you start getting diminishing returns / bottlenecking?

 

There are tests out on the web that show the decline in performance for 1080s, but nothing that tests different gen cards to find when the decline in performance starts?

 

ie, I don't want to spend money on a 1080, when I'd get the same performance on a 980ti with my PCIe 2.0 system.

Do a 'scrapyard wars as fast as possible'.

That's actually a really cool idea. Really, a BTS for Scrapyard wars on CSF would be smart, you know, since CSF is kinda failing.

EDIT: also, debunking/confirming the myth of driver installation order making a difference would be nice

Can confirm, chipset drivers, thinkpad G40, windows XP

 

INSTALL THEM FIRST

I second this, as well, as well as PCI lanes as fast as possible (I know there is already one on LTT, but it is two years old, and I think an updated one would be nice)

16x?

 

1080Ti won't bottle neck 2.0 16x. 8x maybe 1080 max.
