Threadripper explained

New intel xeon line-up explained (both workstation and the silver/gold/whatever stuff)

Epyc line-up explained

Intel VROC explained and why it's different from a normal raid-setup.

LRDIMM explained (or LDRIMM vs UDIMM or whatever)

No clue if it's been done. the search terms could be all over the place.. 

Topic thought.. Nvme, sate, ssd and how each drives speed effects the operation of your mouse and keyboard and their responses.. I seem to notice a large difference in my mouse from sata to ssd to nvme but don't know how to test the numbers and see if it's my mind tricking me or is there a change/effect..

I have a few interesting idea how about Active Directory Directory Services Infrastructure

or: The OSI Model

or just both
Would be really interested to have that to explain it to coworkers :P
and IMO the OSI model is pretty much basics for Informatics

I think this deserves a full LTT video but not sure where to put that.  This came across my FB feed and it's hysterical, just reading the responses from the company page trying to make it sound legit and the fake account's saying they have one and love it.  Hysterical.

Graphic card name system and what is founders edition, Ill be honest I have no idea how a 980 is on the same level as a 1080 if it even is, because I still see people using 980's today. Please explain.

Explaining benchmarking, how it works. Why is it different from PC to PC although of the same model.

What do the numbers mean, how is it useful to the general population.

I've always heard about, and even vehemently suggested, not placing a motherboard on the anti-static bag it comes in.  "The outside of the bag is conductive and can damage the board, etc., etc."  Linus has even done his own Techquickie on the matter.  But recently someone threw another YouTube video in my face claiming that it's not true, and that placing their board on the anti-static bag then placing that bag on a carpeted floor to test why the board wouldn't power-on, couldn't have harmed the board.  I'll link the video below.  Perhaps it's time to beat this dead horse.. one more time!  Hopefully this will put and end to all the rumors, lest we be forced to admit we may have been wrong this whole time.

I don't see a place to post video ideas for the normal LTT channel, so I apologize if this is a faux pas.


Can you do a video where you use literally every single pin/header on a motherboard and go over why each of them exist? I seem to never utilize 80% of those pins when doing new builds and not knowing why they're even there other than to stress me out and give me more options than I need.

Not a quickie suggestion but a normal video. 64 cores: Ryzen 7 vs 1950x vs Epyc. I want to see 64 core (probably) Beowulf clusters of Ryzen 7 and 1950X go up against 2x EPYC 7601, bonus points for a rig of whatever makes sense from intel. Price/performance analysis, benchmarks, workloads that run the gamut from embarrassingly parallel to requiring very tight linkage between cores, the works.


Actually, better make it a series ;) I'd watch the hell out of that.

No negativity but it can't be a "Brief" guide if it's a Tech"Quickie" episode, that could go for the Linus Tech Tips channel though

different types of servers and how the hardware components/general builds vary between them.

Alternatively/additionally do an LTT video about generally the same except using your own server room as a guide of how its used to optimize storage and computing resources for your workflow (I know this has been somewhat done in other videos but not recently I believe and not taking into account all the different servers)

Quite a lot of people here are also server enthiosiast so I would suggest 2 topics:

1) Difference between server installations (core vs enterprise vs datacenter etc)

2) Server licencing schemes (especially regarding virtualisation)


When looking online into these topics it's hard to find a source with a good simple and clear explanation.
