Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

Hi community, 

 

With all these years of Linus Tech tips, all these years of unboxing stuff, build day, throwing box on the floor etc.

 

Linus did mention it a few times but we never saw any video about that.

 

What about a Boxing video? At the end of an unboxing video, They take it all aparts, clean up, repackage all the way back, Put it back in inventory etc.

 

Could do a nice video on a busy unboxing/build day.

 

What happen with all these products, Stay on the shelf forever ? Ship it back ? Or maybe they get destroyed or water all over them on the next project.

 

 

 

Waiting on parts to arrive so meanwhile I'm binge watching some LTT video :)

All right, I have seen what appears to be a lot of contradictory information lately when comparing performance between the AMD Ryzen and AMD Ryzen "Threadripper" processors.  In fact, there are some old videos on your channel that don't appear to help the matter when compared to newer videos on your channel.  So, I would love to see an updated video giving a good in-depth comparison between the two processors (keeping video card the same).
 
While Threadripper CPUs appear to be great for multi-threaded applications, a simple Google search gives conflicting information debating single-threaded applications and even performance in games.  I have seen arguments stating Threadripper is actually worse for games than a regular third-generation Ryzen CPU.  On the flip side, it appears this may have only been true for earlier Threadripper processors.  Not to mention, the difference in cost-benefit.  So, there is obviously a lot of confusing information out there when it comes to comparing AMD Ryzen to AMD Ryzen Threadripper.
 
So, PLEASE do an updated video comparing the AMD Ryzen processors to the AMD Threadripper processors and which are better for gaming etc.

@Three Eye Depends which Threadripper, you're just mixing old and new stuff.

 

2xxx series Threadrippers were slower in single core than 2xxx Ryzens.

3xxx Threadrippers however have about the same single core perf than 3xxx Ryzen.

What if we have 2 ethernet cards and you want to asign the fast one to play one specific game online and the other to download games and all the other stuff, browsing etc...  

 

Mi little brother asked me this bacause he wants to use the adsl for download fornite and keep using the mobile phone as a modem just to play Warthunder.

I'm a new member to the forums, but I've been watching your videos for years. I'd love to see a sequel to your gaming on iMac but with the Macbook Pro instead.

 

I've been a macbook pro owner since 2008, but I grew up with a desktop in my home playing Unreal, AoE, Crysis, and tons of other games. I love gaming. Owning a macbook always made it rather difficult but over the last decade I've learned how to game on it successfully with much trial and error. There are practical reasons professionally, educationally, and conveniently for why I own a Macbook Pro (Plus I prefer their OS 100%).

 

Things it would to cool to test or learn about: 

- Since you can get a cooling pad for laptops does that solve the cooling problem like with the iMac? 

- How do you get an eGPU to work with Bootcamp and should you? (link below talks about it, but it's a bit hard to digest)

- Bootcamp vs ported games vs Streaming Service

- External SSDs and external boot drives?

- Best external monitors (comparable Hz and res as macbook) and peripherals for this specific setup?

- Essentially, if gaming on a late 2019 macbook pro (see my specs below) was your only option what can you do to get the most out of it?

- What would you need to build a rig noticeably better at gaming BUT with comparable workstation performance at the best price point?

 

I really want to build my own custom gaming rig one of these days, but just haven't had the opportunity to build it yet. So I've been slowly trying to make a better setup for my macbook pro so I can game and work with the same computer.

(Also my GPU is a Radeon Pro Vega 16, not in the picture)

@Kilrah  So, if I understand you correctly, it sounds like it's not really worth going with a Threadripper version of the CPU for a gaming rig.  Especially, if you have a good GPU.  Or, all things being equal at single core, is is still a good idea to go with a Threadripper processor for better multi-threaded processing for games?

For gaming only, useless. But if you have other workloads that can benefit from that many threads you can get a TR without losing on gaming performance.

I was looking at some old info and as a school tech director I ran back across some info on "The $100 Laptop" that was going to revolutionize the world!  The idea was to build ruggedized laptops running free / open source OS (Linux?) on a platform that did not require the user to have a power source. The plan was to provide them to children in underdeveloped countries and close the tech gap.  The prototypes were shocking green with a bright yellow handle that was used to CRANK generate the power needed to operate the device.  As far as I know very few of the original design still exist but they (One Laptop Per Child) did continue on with the idea. (http://one.laptop.org/about/hardware).  Wireless networking, programming built in, a solar panel charger (optional) and mesh networking so you can network even when you don't have a network available are all packed into the device.

 

Let's see if the LinusTechTips crew can mod one of these to do - well anything - it is not designed to do.  For extra credit - find one of the crank handle models and see if you can just make it work!
 

Enjoy

I've been watching this channel for about a year now and in one of the videos from the mineral oil PC Linus mentioned something about a mac book pro being placed into ice water and how it improved performance. He had also had a question about a foil like bag he could use as a laptop stand to try and re create the process in a similar fashion without the hazard of the macbook or other laptop falling into water. I was thinking about how could one use a water cooler radiator with a radiator inside the pump mounted with fans to water cool a base that would sit under the laptop. I do have a general idea of how the system would look work and be powered as to where the radiator and fans would fit inside a backpack as to where it could be a mobile unit so anyone could use it in there day to day lives.

Hi there !

I've both heard and read a lot about latency issues with Ryzen CPUs in music production. Still not satisfied with answers that i found on some "music/audio" forums so i thought i would head to LTT forum with this one. Thinking about upgrading my rig as i need more horsepower for bigger projects and also maybe going Hackintosh as i would like to use Logic Pro X more often. 

 

Maybe you could do an episode that would be dedicated to all the audio geeks ? You do a lot of great video production related content so i'm curious what you could do with audio production. 

 

I work both on PC and Mac, using mainly Ableton Live (studio + live performance) + Pro Tools or Logic Pro X for specific projects.

 

PS. This is my first post on LTT forum :D and watching your videos is my "cold beverage after hard day" type of relaxing

 

Peace !

A build video for a combined gaming PC and NAS solution that has a good look for putting underneath a living room TV. Meaning more of an AV component look than a tower and none of that gaudy RGB stuff please.

So I have had this idea rolling around in my head for a while.

 

In my 'office' area, we have a dual desk set up for the wife and I.

I thought an interesting setup would be to have 2 separate PCs with their own stations ( one on each of the desks / or next to each other in the middle) but with a shared external cooling setup (Radiator, reservoir and pump? outside the cases) mounted behind/underneath or otherwise out of mind. Obviously not practical, but to me it could be a really slick build 'battlestation' type of thing.

do a watercooling loop with Nitrogen for evaporating and a pump and then use a cryocooler to cool them off.

Make an in-depth video comparing graphics cards which are not the top-of-the-line products but are more accessibly priced. Which cards would be acceptable for a good gaming experience if you don't need to have all the settings cranked to maximum? For example cards which are capable of 4K output but you won't be able to crank all the settings all the way up. Or for example with settings at maximum but at 1080p instead of 4K? What are the benefits of the various cards and how budget friendly are they? How do the cards made by other manufacturers (but using the graphics chip manufacturers parts) compare to the cards by AMD and Nvidia themselves?

 

There are plenty of videos featuring the latest and best video cards, and though they are awesome cards, realistically they are not affordable for the general public. Information about the performance of cards in the 300 to 500 dollar/euro/pound range would be far more useful.

 

And please explain what benefits one would get when opting for a 500 dollar/euro/pound card instead of say a 250 one.

Hi Linus (& Team)!

 

Before I start, I am a huge fan and I *think* I have seen every single video you have ever posted, after the NCIX days for sure. I've been watching for about 5/6 years now and I always will.

 

Anyway, I recently bought the Logitech G433 Gaming Headset because of their amazing sound quality, amazing comfort (when you use the velvety ear-cups instead of the standard sandpaper mesh fabric ones) and because of the way they marketed them as a gaming headset where you can un-plug the mic and use them as a daily headphones driver because of their stylish, sleek and subtle look. 

 

Well, they're my favourite ever headphones/headset, I absolutely love them. There's nothing I would improve... except. The modern problem of the headphone jack. I am an Apple fan (when it comes to mobile phones exclusively, obviously). 

 

I just wish.... I could unplug the aux cable and the detachable mic and bluetooth them to my phone and off I go travelling with them when I'm not gaming and not have to have the big wire and an an aux to lightning cable adaptor. Such a device exists! For example the Voxoa BTunes VXB-25 as shown in this UnboxTherapy video: 

 

So... I just thought you might be interested in doing a video round-up on the best wired-to-wireless headphone adapters in the future! (For example one common issue with the adapters from my research is that they often reduce the maximum possible volume and they're also quite bulky).

 

Thanks,

Interesting. One thing you also might want to take into account for something like this is that wired headphones (even with detachable cable) are less likely to contain built-in batteries, so this thingamabob would have to supply the power for the analog signal to the driver coils. That's probably part of the reason why the volume is lower. So the question is how much air-time can you get out of a thing like this.
