I can't help you buy something if you don't list a budget or intended use.

I can't help you troubleshoot if you don't list your specs/config.

P.S. Pictures usually help.

I would like a video about QOS and bufferbloat. I have written a draft that explains this in detail as well as practical solutions, it was supposed to be for a tech  website but it fell through

 

You could also do a long form LTT Video on the subject for practical applications, and I bet Asus  would be all over that sponsor spot. 

 

There's lots of subtety and bro science in this topic, I think I'd be great and I'd like to be a part of it

I'd like to see a video comparing a bunch of different wall socket USB fast chargers, both to find the fastest and best value options (and probably include some dodgy cheap aliexpress ones for fun)

I would love to see a Tech Quickie episode on networking. More specifically on IP addresses, subnet masks, network prefixes, host parts and what all of these are used for.

I was thinking an episode could be done on chips made for custom solutions. I worked in a fabrication facility, and there were so many types of materials used to create whatever a customer wanted for a chip. The market is surprisingly big for people needing a custom solution for their tech. Our wafer sizes used were mostly 200mm to 300mm.

 

Our focus was more on 3D-ICs and wafer bonding, but sitting in on presentations for proposed custom chips were always cool, even if they never came to market.

Also, I was looking around but couldn't find a video about another thing I'd like to be easily condensed; dual-booting different operating systems. It'd be nice to have a video explaining different options. I'm about to adding Ubuntu to dual-boot, currently using Windows 10. I've been using a VM in the meantime.

Linus, could you do a video of a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra teardown to see how Samsung give the phone such good specs while still keeping it quite thin?

Hi Linus, i am currently studying to be a game artist and am looking into buying a surface book 2, Purley for its touch screen and folding capabilities, i need it for painting and drawing on Photoshop and using 3d modelling software such as 3Ds max so that i can do work on the go and at home. I was wandering if you could do a video about these touch screen type laptops comparing them and similar products so i can find out weather i should save up for a surface book 2 or a cheaper alternative or even something completely different.

Could you create a video that's a deep dive into gaming and professional hardware compared to regular non branded items?

 

I am tired of having to explain to people that just because it is advertised for gaming doesn't mean it can't do other stuff and that in most cases the gaming hardware is going to hold up better than cheaper items.

 

It would be nice to have a video to just link to that shows examples of this. Like of course gaming chairs are bogus so would be nice to have a roundup video of all the things. Where the cost goes, if the quality can be better, why gaming related features would be beneficial and not something to run away from etc.

You should review this program serviio. https://www.serviio.org/ 

this program is amazing it's way better then plex. serviio "Serviio is a free media server. It allows you to stream your media files (music, video or images) to renderer devices (e.g. a TV set, Bluray player, games console or mobile phone) on your connected home network."  

 

Try the program you will not disappointed

I'd love to see Linus screaming at his hard drive array (spinning drives) and showing the error rates. Kindof like the ZFS video here:

 

 

Oh, BTW, when you put a mix of drives, you want the spinning drives on the edges (top/bottom/right/left) because those areas have the least vibration. You put the SSD's in the middle.

I think a video on all the different types of audio gear would be cool. DAC's, Pre-amps, power amps, integrated amps, power conditioners etc.


If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or speaker gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Yes my audio stuff is 725,000 USD, I'm a dedicated audiophile/mastering engineer

 

(If you want to see my audio stuff, check my profile, it's too much to list here.)

Ignore if it has already been done but

How about comparing expensive high-end digicam against high-end 'real film' photo cameras?

I remember reading some years ago (probably over a decade - I'm old :P) that no matter how good digicams were their sensors were no match for real film. Has it changed and by how much?

Again if it has been done already just point the link and ignore me 😅

Can you do a video on why the BTX formfactor got killed? It was meant to replace the ATX family, and the orientation of the RAM slots had been changed to maximize airflow. On paper, it should have been the logical next step in improving performance. I had asked this question in a thread here, and the best response was due to CPU power management rendered it obsolete.

 

But that still doesn't seem reason enough to just yeet it into the dust bin, especially given how CPUs are guaranteed to always become hotter and hotter.

In the very recent video, Riley called a new 12-volt only PSU "basement tier" without realizing its actual performance and legal implication.

 

Make a Techquickie explaining the new PSU standard, i.e., ATX12VO and shows its (dis)advantages over the older ATX12V (with 24-pin connector) standard.

A new video idea is how to connect onehome network to another using VPN. The idea here is to have two houses connected with an always on connection and their two LANs appear as one. Each house would still use their own local internet gateway and service connection for all internet usage.

id like to see a video about how GPU manufacturers get the go ahead from nvdia and AMD to use their chipsets and drivers.
