Been checking out 2080ti cards. But their cost are so high that it made me wonder. Can you buy 2 2080 cards and run them in SLI(NV-Link maybe) instead of buying 1 2080ti card and get better preformance? 


Also, what is the best fps set-up you can buy for the least ammount of money.

Perhaps y'all could try out NVDIMMs. (Non-volatile storage in DIMM slots) Theoretically much faster than NVMe if I understand it correctly (And I very well may be mistaken).

Hi everyone at LTT, i am deeply grateful for the channel and all of you!
It keeps me out of my personal ruminations watching your funny episodes, thank you ❤️

I am new to security cams setup, but quite good in autodidact D.I.Y. mentality and comfortable with electronic soldering,
and lastly i am a n0ob in coding but also already broken the ice with RasPi3B+ if i am guided clearly.

So i was wondering what is the most affordable setup for security cameras for a house ?

Ideally i want to use 4 small/hidden HD 1080p cams for all my main access points to the house from the outside view, that can be selected individually to warn me all the roommates on our cellphones with live feed when movements are detected but only on certain one's because the front entrance is a busy street and we don't want to get annoyed with lots of false alerts. Is it possible to create our own cloud storage on a hard drive that can send alerts via wifi data or sms if absent from the house with a link to our diy cloud to see the stream live wherever we are ?

I heard about the security cam cloud service and monitoring called '' Stratocast '' by Genetec : ( https://www.genetec.com/solutions/all-products/stratocast/overview )
but i am not sure it is worth the yearly cost for only an appartment if a DIY solution exist.

I don't wish to have some bulky pods of plastic balls or any eye popping devices, discrete as possible, thin like a wire with the lens has its pin head if it exist.
That can be fished thought walls with only a small hole to in the frames/walls.

For visual filters is there are any hybrid versions of camera lens that are both functional in
day time so has infrared in night time for the same lens that adjust itself automatically ?

Or i need to hook up separated individuals one's in pairs at the 4 locations with 8 lens instead of 4 ?

For software solutions i eyed the app named '' Haven: Keep Watch (BETA) '' by The Guardian Project : ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.havenapp.main&hl=en )
it turn old Androids phone's into security cams even advertised by Edward Snowden, but i am suspicious about its visual quality & reliability in the long run.

Is there an advantage or differences in records transmission methods in an PoE security IP cams with NVRs (Network Video Recorders)
an DVRs (Digital Video Recorders) for cameras that are connected via a coax cable
Wire-free security cameras that are powered by batteries (or with solar cells combo or psu) and transmit the data via WiFi ?
All above options or more that are unknown to my knowledge ?

For wireless cameras is there any risk of being hacked, i guess they transmit the signal encrypted in AES 256 bits minimum ?

I want to hide my Central Surveillance Recording and DATA transmission Hub of hardware piece gears within the wall with a discrette hidden door acces. My profession is home improvement in renovation so if i can add more skills to offer to future clients it would be better for me & i love new challenges & to learn new stuffs!

Anyway if Linus can make an ABC video on this topic i would be very gratefull !

Thank you, will continue my researches and comparing costs plus advantages... peace :)

I'd like to see more reviews on dedicated mobile workstations - laptops with workstation grade hardware like Quadros and Xeons for example. 


Example products:

Lenovo P1

Dell Precision 5530

HP ZBook 15 G5


All these are pretty similarly specced laptops. The Lenovo P1 is using the same chassis as the X1 Carbon Extreme which has been reviewed before. So rather than doing individual reviews to differentiate from that, a roundup video comparing the laptops with a focus on workloads that utilize the hardware. I would like to see a focus on things like which laptop has the best thermal management solution.

unraid series

  • low end build
  • ebay retired server components compared and benchmarked - even prebuilt vs custom (R710, Norco 2442, Supermicro CSE-846 / 847 etc)
  • Whonnock configuration - more than 30 drives / dangers of the cache pool and mitigating risk of failure
  • buy a bunch of SUN 3TB SAS drives from ebay and stress them (they are $30/each) - high temp / high vibration and compare against a new shucked 4TB WD and a new WD green to see what dies first
  • what backplane / SAS expander / HBA is the best price to performance

pfSense Series

  • vlans - why, how, and examples
  • hardware compare / capabilities / benchmarks
  • ancient laptop resurrection
  • redundancy / failover setup
  • plugin performance hits / specs for 10gb

and maybe a new channel / series:

  • Anthony's Hackintosh / Linux - builds / tips / reviews / etc.
  • n00b to network engineer (start with the basics, grow through to high level networking techniques)
  • Premiere tips and tricks
