Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

Considering how much process varies between devices and how manufacturers release different SoC devices under same model name (looking at you Samsung) this is not a great idea. Plus there are like a million videos out there, a video done by linus wouldnt be anything special imo. XDA should be where you go for tutorials and roms, not youtube.

Fair and true, I was just on Discord talking to someone about it and I can get the lineageos 16 version but I'm wondering, how bad is MIUI and is there any other way to make it feel like stock android?

MIUI is nowadays pretty good, however I still find it extremely full of bloatware and full of features I never use. Also no, MIUI is pretty heavily modified and usually crashes when you root it and install magisk modules that changes UI. Get a Android One device if you really want AOSP on budget, or OP device.

Do 150$ (USD) high/ultra 1080p PC!!
Saw some Xeon 1220 for 15$ recently and you can get new old stock RX 470 for like 70$ nowadays, although the CPU is gonna be a bottleneck in some places, it's still best price to performance you can get period! 150$ should be enough to build such PC when getting new old stock RX 470, new SSD, new or used PSU and all the rest used parts. Would be nice to compare it with consoles as the price is kinda like xbox one but the performance should be more like xbox one x! :D Total console killer on the budget :D

PS: Prices may be different in Canada, I'm basing it on the prices we have in Europe

After watching Linus's video about the three Abyss headphones I had an idea.

How about a video about all audio formats, and their advantages. 

Do like Vinyl vs CD vs digital uncompressed audio vs gigital compressed vs streaming at different bit rate.

I'm not the biggest audiophile, but I do enjoy my vinyl records and my tech videos, so this would take the cake for me.

 

Keep up the great videos.

If for some reason have a shit old car or bike sitting around, how about OCing the ECU to raise the rev limit. I think usually it's a case of swapping the crystal oscillator to one slightly faster, not too much or the engine map will be too busted.

Hello!

I've always wanted to suggest this video idea

I produce music and I've always wanted to build a pc that'll be able to manage loads of Vsts with a lot of voices.

My projects tend to consist on 100+ instruments and audio tracks

The programs that I use are Ableton & Cubase but I could see how many people that use different programs could benefit from a video.

that's all!

I'd like to know your opinions or if anyone could give like feedback on how to build a badass music production pc!

yeah it's pretty hard to find PC hardware reviews that's tested on recording studio software o_o (probably due to just how low the recommended specs of any main program are)

 

maybe if you could explain how would each part of the PC affect the performance of the entire editing workflow? (e.g. (just guessing) RAM for previews, CPU frequency for realtime playback, CPU core count for multiple effects/filters, etc)

 

otherwise you'd end up like what logical increments are suggesting for their top-end build: a gaming PC with 64GB of RAM.

An as fast as possible video answering this question: Are there any real benefits to obsessively trying to manage my RAM and CPU usage?

 

I have a decent enough computer that does everything I need it to 99% of the time (16gb ram, gtx1060, ryzen 5). yet whenever I open task manager I feel the need to research why all the different programs are consuming resources. I don't need answers to these specific questions but these are what I ask myself.

  • why is Chrome is using 20% of the memory? 
  • Is having anti-virus software worth the 5-15% resources it consumes and should I try and optimize it?
  • should I stress about unnecessary background apps using resources (razor, oculus, nvidia share)? 
  • how important are all those my razor installed when I set up my keyboard. 

 

Is the conclusion to just let windows manage the memory usage until I notice there is a problem? that works for me, but what about people who can't afford to upgrade the memory to match their needs.

 

a related side note: My dad and mom have the same computer with one difference. she has a graphics card and he uses the motherboard's graphics. when streaming a video she has higher RAM usage than he would for the same task, he thinks this is a sign that something is wrong. is that just the way things work? 

 

This video starts to answer the question but I would love more.

Not a specific video suggestion but I think it's odd such a gaming-centric tech channel never tests input lag on displays beyond "feels fine".  Linus & co should start using the Input Lag Databse (https://displaylag.com/display-database/) to report on input lag numbers. If the display being reviewed isn't on the site they should use their methodology to report on it.https://displaylag.com/testing-method/

 

Here's a specific video suggestion though: Input Lag Testing Every TV and Monitor We Own!

I think Linus and Anthony could have a really fun time building a PC that *looks* exactly like a PC from the year 2000, but with new hardware, or the alternative goal could be building what gamers in 2000 might *envision* a PC in 2020 could look like. It could be a fun nostalgia trip for them, and might be surprising for a lot of their audience how aesthetics and features have changed. 

 

The parts are out there to make this happen:

Spoiler

Motherboard: SuperMicro makes Green PCB 9th series intel motherboards. I don't know whether you can overclock on C246 but possibly you can?

-It looks like it could physically support SLI, but if it doesn't have software support, they could just use DirectX12

-It has a PCI slot!!!. It doesn't get much more retro than that, I am sure there is something you could put in there that is mildly useful

-Obviously use bare PCB Green or Blue Ram to go with it

-CPU Coolers have a lot of variety so hard to pick what would be the best there.

Sound Card:

EVGA has just come out with their Nu Audio Pro Audio Card System which has not one but TWO physical cards per computer  connected by an internal cable. This enables the card to put out 7.1 surround sound and a double sound card could not have more 2000 gamer street cred.

GPU

If there's one thing that separates modern and old GPUs, it's the fairly low tech coolers that were de riguer back in the day. Which modern cards since the 20RTX series have begun to completely eschew. There are still a few holdouts though. PNY and a couple other vendors make Blower RTX cards. The 5700 series AMD reference cards are somehow *still* blowers, and while they lack true Crossfire support, they can still work under DirectX12's multiGPU mode.

Case

This one is harder, because I don't know if Linus would prefer a retro looking modern case or just using an ATX case from the year 2000, either way could work. A couple likely baseline requirements:

-LOTS of 5.25 inch drive bays/drives, have to make the ultimate early 2000s dual disc drive status (heck why stop at two?)

-3.5 inch drive: Because in the year 2000 the floppy drive was still very much alive, so I feel like this build deserves one

-cathode tube lighting, because RGB wasn't a thing yet. 

-One of those double size Fan controllers that takes up two 5.25 inch bays and has all the crazy flashing lights and fan status updates

-Something like the Zalman Z11 could work great this. 

 

image.thumb.png.3dd94f33ca8e99474702dd59c103a605.png

 

Possible Accoutrements

-It might be funny to have 3 disc drives, DVD, Blu-Ray and HD DVD or if this is in earnest, dual blu ray drives.

-Cathode tube lighting (with UV for extra hotness)

-PCI card to run the disc drives and floppy drives off IDE, because SATA was just a twinkle in some nerd's eye

Storage

-RAID 0 array of whatever the latest hard drives Linus can get to speak of for free, because there was no SSDs to speak of back then

-OR a 3.5 inch NVME U.2 drive, because the 2.5 inch form factor didn't exist yet, but Micron makes a 3.5 inch SSD that could fit the bill.

Ahh, yeah its weird. Comments on the internet claim it is supported, but the tech press says it isn't. It may be they are in DirectX12 multiGPU  and don't even realize it.

 

Good to know about the X299 ones.

HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop - 15z

It looks to be a nice value with a r5 3550H with a GTX 1650 or GTX 1660ti

or R7 3750H with gtx 1660ti

with the option of a 120hz screen

 

the one issues I see is hp love of small batteries.

 

Also maybe review HP probook line. They no have both intel and AMD options for good prices.
