Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Over the past week I've recalling fondly my early days overclocking. The first board I had was a Athalon X2 shortly followed by a big upgrade to the famous Intel Q6600. Although not that long ago in the grand scheme of things, overclocking then was very different to now. We had no UEFI and even high end motherboards didn't make the process of overclocking easy. So overclocking really taught you a lot about the underlying architecture of the CPU.

This got me thinking I wonder if anyone has ever done a "history overclocking" video. I had a quick YouTube search and didn't come up with much but I reckon this video is one which many in our community would enjoy.

Anyway, enough reminiscing! I just thought this could make a great topic for a TechQuickie video! :)

how to choose between 32 bit and 64 bit....just asking for myself but may help others also...

Come on 64 is the new 64.

Get 64

1.  Low vs High Voltage Leakage for CPU's Particularly Ryzen.

Quote

 I.E Why is a 1700 65w and a 1700x 95w, and Why should the average consumer care?  How it effects overclocking/Voltage Curves etc.   Most people do not know how this works or functions though not to steal AMD's light, most people just assume the X one is better which isn't necessarily the case for the general user.  

 

2. AMD CCX Design and Fabric in their Lineup 

Quote

Another case of a topic most people don't understand but many are interested in these chips.  Why ryzens are 4+4 and not straight 8 cores.  Why R5's are going to be 3+3, etc.  How that effects consumers, and why some programs might not take full advantage of it today.  Because of Latency/Crosstalk etc.

I have some suggestions. 

 

Does the amount of ROPS matter? and what do shader processing units actually do?

Congrats on the 1 million milestone guys!

 

How about twisted pair vs shielded cables for reducing interference?

Could you guys do a video on obscure CPU architectures? For example, do a video on the several architectures by Sun Microsystems like the "UltraSparc archetecture", and the "T - series processors". Talk about what they are used for, and why people/corperations need what the architectures provide.

If you want to stick to Intel, then do a video explaining what the "Itanium" (IA-64) archetecture is, and what it is used for. 

 

Then you could go on to discuss the differences between the technologies of x86 and the above mentioned architectures.

For example, the latest generation of T-series CPUs by Sun are able to have 8 logical threads per core. Sorta like hyperthreading on steroids.

 

I personally find these obscure architectures interesting because they manage to stay relevant, considering the market they compete in is mostly dominated by the x86 architecture.

 

Here are some links to help you in your research:

 

Sun Microsystems:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Microsystems

 

Sun Microsystems UltraSparc architecture:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPARC

I don't know if it was suggested or even created, but i would like to see it done so here is my suggestion.

 

The difference between different companies for keyboard and mice.

  1. What are really the differences, why some are more popular or not?
  2. Which company has best record for quality of its products and quality of warranty service over all?
  3. Also which brand do you recommend?
  4. What Keyboards and Mice do you recommend in general, for gaming for office use and so on?

I do not know if it has been done yet, but there should be a video explaining power supplies. People are still confused what to look for when buying a PSU.

Podcasts! How they're distributed, how different from radio, how they're different from video streaming, etc

It's not a complicated topic but it's one people don't know about.
