all of the information i have found via youtube and minecraft forums say minecraft is not multi threaded and i have a 3200g overclocked to 4.2ghz and my friend has a 2970 and we have near identical performance in minecraft with the same gpu

what is a 2970? But either way there probably is a mod for it

Any Help is appricated! Please correct me if I´m wrong!

Sorry for grammer/spelling mistakes, but english is not my native language (it´s german in case you were curious) *expand to see builds*

I am reaching out hoping that maybe this could make a great video.  Project Diablo 2 has been a great mod for Diablo 2 that has given has given a lot to a community that was disgarded a long time ago.  The mod actually supports my ulltrawide 1440 monitor!  The server got hit with hackers 11/27 and this small team with an individual leaving due to health concerns and others gone for Thanksgiving still worked to get the servers up 24 hours later.

 

In a discord update he said 

SenpaiSomethingYesterday at 1:16 PM

@everyone So we're still working on things and we think we found a temporary fix that will get us up sooner than later but unfortunately now my PC has decided to start dying during all this and I'm dealing with that on top of things which is great timing ofc I'll have another update within 4-5 hours in which time we should know if they're coming up today or not.

 

Project Diablo 2, Secret Shopper and the upcoming Grand Tour Treasure Hunt have been three highlights in an aweful year.  I was wondering if we could get one more were Linus makes a computer for SenpaiSomething.

 

*I only thought of the idea from a super chat given to Linus on the WAN show last Friday.

 

*This was one of the discord updates

SenpaiSomethingYesterday at 12:19 AM
@everyone So we're still working on it and haven't stopped trying to fix the exploit but its a big task. Half of our team is away this weekend unfortunately and one of our members had to step away from the project earlier this week due to medical reasons so we don't have nearly as many of us available at the moment. Sadly it won't be up tonight. The team needs to sleep soon and I need to get something to eat as I've been dealing with this since I woke up but I apologize as I know this wasn't how any of us planned on spending our friday night. We're going to keep plugging away and we'll update you again tomorrow sometime in the evening (PST) but unfortunately this is going to be a longer fix and I hope you can be patient with us. Don't worry we wont let a few people ruin our community and the diablo 2 revolution of 2020 we just need time to do things right.

Much love from the Project Diablo 2 Team

Not an idea for a specific video but a more general one - I'd like to see them take a few seconds in the reviews of pre-built systems (including laptops) to mention the initial setup procedure and how the system is configured out of the box.

 

Things like:

  • Does it badger you to create an account with the OEM?
  • Does it badger you to set up free trials of anything (e.g. McAfee/Norton; backup services)
  • Most importantly - what crapware is preinstalled, and how easy is it to remove?

A lot of this is inconsequential, but I think it says a lot about the ethos of the company, and whether I want to be giving my money to them.

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

Hey, I've just signed up to reply to this topic =D

 

I recently found out that one can get old enterprise grade hardware for pretty cheap these days and I'll be getting a Proliant DL380 G7 for 170€.

You could get up to two xeon x5690 into that thing which seems pretty decent to me even these days. It would be nice to see you guys covering the topic of turning old servers into budget "gaming PCs" since you can easily put a few full sized PCIe GPUs into the thing without running out of PCI lanes. 

Sounds to me like it would also do for a much better SLI experience. And if you take something like a GTX 970 you could get the whole thing done for probably below 300€.

 

I've been looking for videos like this for a while but couldn't really find anything, so I'd like to see someone covering the topic who actually knows what they are talking about =D

 

(btw, the servers I found here: https://www.gekko-computer.de/en/Servers/Rack-server-91.html )

idk if anyone has suggested this yet or if this'll be a good enough idea but i haven't seen a ton of ppl talk about this yet and i kinda find it interesting. So, Walmart has made a rgb mechanical keyboard by their own in house brand which is a bit interesting to me. Ik you guys covered a lot of walmart pc gaming stuff so i think this'll fall right in line.

 

Here's a link to the keyboard in question.

 

I also know that they've made basically every other pc 'gaming' accessory (rgb mouse, rgb mouse pad, etc) so maybe a all walmart setup?? Although tbh i would kinda like a review of the mech keyboard to get ur guys thoughts on it, especially at it's price. I will even pay to buy and ship it out to you guys (as long as you can pay me back bc im a bit short on cash atm)

hahaha I have depression haha lol. But also i'm Tanjiro Kamado's husband

Make a video where you benchmark Temperature/Performance of a PC compared to ambient air temperature to see if gaming in the cold improves performance.

Use room temperature 20Celsius as the benchmark then go up to 40Celsius to see what a extremely hot climate does to performance, then you can go full canadian and go down to -10/-20C using a freezer room or just doing the benchmark outside on a cold winter day.

You could also test if water cooling or air cooling perform better or worse than the counter part in different climates.

A gaming computer built in, or below a tenkeyless keyboard. Maybe a modded NUC or a laptop board in a custom enclosure could work.

Hello,  

 

New subscriber here,  watched your videos for quite a while now.  I was wondering if you may be able to do a video on a build for a powerful build for photogrammetry running Pix4d software.  We are looking at getting more involved in drone mapping and will need a computer to handle the processing and stitching of thousands of images.  Thanks for reading and doing a fantastic job.

iirc this kind of workload uses lots of graphic memory, so a server running Quadros would probably be your best bet.

Step 1: Buy gaming laptop

Step 2: Cut off the screen

Make a video on the benefits of  real-time CPU optimization tools in gaming - if there are any, or is it worth it in general. 

Translated: Forcing your CPU to use more cores&threads at games/processes you run than it would request and use by default.

 

Very relevant topic now that more and more people are starting to have 8-12 cores in their systems and tons of games might for example only ask for 4.

Programs such as Process Lasso and many others exist for this sort of purpose.

Video idea: how long will various pieces of software work without an internet connection?

Could be very interesting

Some ideas

All current os flavors.(Win,mac,&lin)

All the game stores offline mode.

Pro software(Adobe cc, solid works, fusion 360, etc)

 

At standard time intervals

Insta-bork, 1 day, week. Month, quarter etc.

 

Bonus points for seeing what it takes to get it going again.( logins, updates, reinstalls, etc.)

 

Extra credit for logging network traffic and seeing what data is sent when reconnected.( mostly for what logs windows and macos sends.)

 I was reading today about the snapdragon 888 an that it's 25% more powerful and thought. How much of a battery could I save if I would underclock a flagship. I know the screen is what actually drains the must battery, but I still would like to know how much longer I would last with the latest snapdragon underclocked to a level like for example the SD765G

Would be cool to shed some light on why Red, DJI and alot of other camera producers crop the image when shooting higher FPS.

 

Ie. why can cameras like dji pocket 2 shoot only 1080p at 240fps, when the sensor is 64mp and shoots 4k60p.

 

I tried contacting DJI about this and all they said was "It's a technical secret. We can't tell our customers the details. I expect your understanding." which is weird..

Personally i would imagine on smaller cams its a datalimit on the equipment used. To not go higher than the rated r/w on storage devices the resolution would haveto be less to outweigh the FPS. On cine cams tho, i dont know.

Atleast personally im interested and would appreciate any answers on the subject.

Regards
