      @Hyperus Ya have to follow the whole thread and be familiar with Linus and his sense of humor and his relationships with his employees. Most of the people commenting are regular followers of the channel and understand the context and therefore the joke. By the way, it wasn't my joke, it was started by someone else up at the top of the thread and then being perpetuated by others "piling on"... :)

    A few things I've learned from running VMs on AMD Zen... 1. Pin the virtual CPUs to physical cores. Pin QEMU's IOThreads and emulator thread to a certain CCX as well. That one should be obvious. 2. Never, under any circumstances, let a VM use cores from different CCXes. They'll just fall over and die with random latency spikes because of InfinityFabric. 3. Don't assign hyperthreads to VMs. Windows can't deal with it. Performance dies if you do that. 4. Apply the "performance" CPUFreq governor on the host system. 5. Configure the VM's threads to use the realtime (FIFO) scheduler. (Only do this when the threads are already pinned.) 6. Expose the host CPU model (host-passthrough) and its various CPUID features that are normally masked (especially hardware vulnerability mitigation flags such as mds-no). 7. Important emulated CPU features: invtsc (invariant timestamp counter; games will hate you due to timer jitter / latency if you don't enable it), pdpe1gb (huge pages), mds-no ("no meltdown vuln" flag), and other vulnerability-related flags (check the QEMU docs for which ones you need) 8. Expose native TSC for fast RDTSC (games love that instruction), disable HPET 9. Use the virtio-scsi controller for attaching disks (needs special Windows drivers); the default SATA one is insanely slow. And while you're at it, set discard=unmap for all disks so TRIM works and Windows automatically shrinks the VM image when you delete files from the VM's filesystem. Note that virtio-scsi currently has a bug that makes it peg a CPU core at 100% but a patch is already on the mailing list. (The bug is present since QEMU 7.0; it doesn't impact functionality.) Alternatively, pass through NVMe devices on the PCIe level. 10. Replicate the GPU's function-level PCIe device numbering inside of the VM (multifunction device) 11. Use the virtio ethernet device (needs drivers) 12. If you want Windows 11, use swtpm to get Secure Boot; no "No TPM Win11" patch needed 13. memballoon model=none

    1. You MIGHT actually want to get an enterprise NIC with network offload. It feels insane to suggest it, but it might be worth it. Especially so if you have a fat pipe to your storage server or something. I know I'm personally CPU limited to ~30Gbit when using my 40Gbit (56Gbit raw) IP-over-IB link. Plus, there is no reason for a tech IRglor with a server room to not have their core infrastructure on something fast. I'm SURE you can get a deal on some used enterprise gear. A few hundred Maple Dollars should get you a 100Gbit switch. 2. If you do the above, then your VMs might be able to just mount a share off that NAS you built. It should be easy enough to give each machine a data share. You could even benefit from having some direct links to the NAS. Most 100Gbit cards are dual port anyway. And SMB 3.1.* supports multichannel. Or you can just give each machine a block device... 3. You should REALLY consider getting some Optane drives for your local storage. Optane is still available in the enterprise space. And it really is SO much faster than regular NVMe. It is SUCH a shame that the marketing departments for all these flash memory companies did such a good job of convincing people that all those big numbers they throw around actually mean anything. If you aren't doing HPC or databases, you live in the world of Queue Depth 1-2. And Optane runs circles around even the fastest flash memory at this depth. Yes, a PCIe 3.0 Optane drive is still faster than a PCIe 4.0 flash based NVMe drive. At least in real-world use. 3.1. That motherboard supports PCIe bifurcation, so you don't need to get a crazy board with a PCIe switching chip (like that sonnet USB-C one...) You can just get a 16x card that breaks out to 4x U.2 ports. Or, you can use M.2 form factor boards and just mount them to a splitter board. Get the drives first, then work from there. You can even adapt the M.2 or Oculink ports. And used drives aren't a problem either. As an example, the low/mid ranged 480GiB 905P drive is rated for 8.76 PB of writes. !!! 8.6 PetaBytes written !!! So these drives will last longer than everything else in the system. Even if you buy used drives that are already 60-75% 'spent'. (And again, I'm going to point out how sad it is that 'marketing' is the reason that Optane/3DXpoint is not living in everyone's gaming rig right now...)

      @Overwatch Hey man, I've been messing around and thinking about how to use these 3x ConnectX-3's that I have, and I reckon using 3x cables with 3x cards gives you a triangle topology rather than a line topology, reducing the extra hop (and whatever your middle device would have to do to route). I'm a network noob so I had tested just by connecting them and manually setting ip addresses. But that really already worked well.

    • Overwatch

      ​@Bacstaber well.... 1. You don't stay rich by spending your money on frivolous things. 2. Re-use is good. And there is nothing 'wrong' with used equipment. It is actually a GOOD thing to re-use equipment. More use-life is less e-waste. 3. Bleeding edge tech is utterly wasted at this level. Should there be a clearly felt difference between 1/2.5/5Gbit and 25/50/100Gbit with his type of setup? Yeah probably. It would let him do things that otherwise wouldn't work well, like using his NAS, and making it FEEL like local storage. But would there be a big difference between a used 100Gbit, and a new 800Gbit setup for him? I'd say no. That is the sort of difference you might feel with 50 users. Or in their case, a room full of editors working with 4k/8k footage. But the COST difference between 100Gbit and 400/800Gbit? Huge. Like, throw a handful more zeros on the end of it. A quick look on ebay shows me several pages of 25/50/100Gbit switches, and there are plenty in the 600-700 range. Contrast that with the 200Gbit switch LTT showed off in their sponsored "The $1,000,000 Unboxing" video, which retails for about $30,000. And a 400Gbit switch? That's not $million house money. But he also has these racked up. He doesn't technically even NEED a switch. He could easily direct-connect this VM host to his NAS for like $500. Hell, you can often get used 56Gbit equipment for LESS than 'consumer' 10Gbit stuff. Like, a LOT less. It's just CLEARLY not optimized for consumer use. I personally payed

      a channel dedicated to explaining it TO Jake might indeed be an idea.

  • ForcefighterX2

    The wastefulness of Windows' IO when running a PC or especially VM, was one of the reasons why I expected Windows to completely die due to the major IO advantages Mac and Linux have over it. But then came SSDs and made these random accesses completely irrelevant. So I had to laugh when they started multiple Windows VMs on the same NVMe SSD. I mean NVMe are great - but not THAT great. :-D

    Yvonne: Linus, you promised. Linus: I had my wires crossed.

  • conscience_cat114

    Linus you REALLY need to look into UNRAID emulation thread pinning. You'd be better off giving 5 CPU's to each machine and pinning the emulation overhead to a single CPU core per VM that's separate to the gaming cores (you could also get away with one thread per VM). It will cut down the inter-core latencies and the VM will perform at around 95% of bear metal performance, even when CPU bound. I run a similar setup at home and once I pinned the Emulation threads to separate cores from my gaming cores my FPS shot up in CPU bound games. It also has a positive effect on 1% and .1% lows when not CPU bound. There are multiple UNRAID forum threads discussing this topic.

    • Overwatch

      He would be better off using a real hypervisor like Proxmox, instead of a NAS with bolted on VM/container support like UnRaid...

    • Adam Zey
      Adam Zey

      @I Have Horrible Commentary It's not just about the virtualization penalty, it's about the CPU topology. There is a huge latency penalty for core-to-core communications if the cores are on different CCDs versus the same CCD. This was even worse with Zen 2, where there was also a big penalty for talking to a core on the other CCX on the same CCD, but Zen 3 switched to a single 8-core CCX per CCD. However, EPYC complicates things because the larger number of CCDs means you now have to worry about NUMA node proximity and the even larger penalty for inter-socket communication in a 2P setup. The worst possible setup for gaming would be splitting the VM's cores across two sockets.

    Actually, what about the anticheat problem? Were LTT able to resolve that? Since it's such a major issue on VM's, it would be great to see if games like Valorant with their Vanguard anticheat would work this way

      @space interesting! Thanks for the info, i didn't know any of this.

    • space

      EAC works with VMs still to this day. BattlEye just soft “bans” you. Luckily, if you’re running Windows 10 PRO, you can go to “Turn Windows features on or off” and enable Hyper-V to essentially “bypass” BattlEye, as well as even other games like Genshin Impact, Valorant (if you go through the effort of actually spoofing device names and RDTSC iirc.) Note that enabling Hyper-V can still cause the dreaded Code 43 error, requiring a ROM patch.

    • Alfie Herbert
      Alfie Herbert

      I think one way is to virtualise windows within the actual vms with hyper-v, and then the system detects it's running in a VM, but doesn't mind because it's hyper-v

    • CDS Equestrian

      This is exactly what I was wondering. How would anticheat behave with what is essentially 5 game instances on the same system.

    WHY does LTT not over provision their cpu cores! Drives me nuts every time I watch them do a virtualization video... Like, assign at least 8 cores to each VM, and let the hypervisor distribute the load.

  • Ryan Wollum
    Ryan Wollum

    For whatever reason this keeps getting attempted over the years, it's really cool to slowly watch the technology catch up to an idea

  • Nom

    Now if there was an option to have like 4 dedicated cores per VM and have the remainder dynamically allocate (or even allocate the 4 cores per machine, while they are not in use), that would be sick af... That way you would actually have a real advantage over 5 single machines, since you could have more powaaa when the kids are not using the machine.

    You know, this looks very cool Linus and Jake, it is indeed on the cutting edge of what can be done. That said, I've never seen something else that is so overly complicated and headache-ridden with several other, better, solutions already being on the market. Not to mention the fact that this is a solution that only Linus could ever use as you'd have to replace the entire system in 2 to 3 years, to upgrade just one person's machine. And from the looks of it, Linus's kids aren't going to be happy with 16gig or 36gig machines for very long, not to mention the limit of 6 cores only. This is fine for now, but as CPU cores are rapidly increasing it won't be shocking to see octa cores and 12 cores become the norm instead of 6 cores. This is peak "I have to get water to that bucket over there, I am a drone pilot, I will fly the drone with the bucket to the ocean and fill it I'll just ignore the working tap right above the bucket"

    As someone who uses virtualization to play a fair amount of games, anti-cheat games are going to give you some big issues. For example, Halo not launching is because of its "Aribiter" anti-cheat. Now Halo's is pretty easy to get around, but battle eye and eac are significantly more annoying, although possible. If you head on over to "SomeOrdinaryGamers" youtube channel, he has quite a few videos on how to get anti-cheats working that would be helpful to watch.

    • Canada Jones
      Canada Jones

      @IHACKFTW From a quick google, that looks like partitioning, not passthrough. Not to mention, a big part of why people do VMs is to be able to run a non-Windows host OS for their main stuff and/or to have many isolated environments running on the same physical hardware, using OSes dedicated to this. Furthermore, while I haven't done research on this, I can't imagine a GPU setup getting more performant than just passing through a whole GPU as a unit.

    • Kye

      ​@Thyncha easyanticheat is kernel, valorant's anti cheat does make it very very difficult to play on a virtual machine but if you can make the anti cheat believe your machine is physical when its virtual then there you have it. As someone mentioned here, SomeOrdinaryGamers covered this but apparently its patched (for good reason as well). I guess valorant will be one of those out of reach games to play virtualized


      @space Sadly everybody so far has failed to look at GPU-PV on windows 11, you can assign multiple gpus to multiple VMS. run fully headless with parsec and actually make use of the gpu power. Passthough is old news, not sure why people are still trying to do it

    • Fluked

      valorant is the only game i can't play on my setup, because its a ring-0 level anticheat. everything else passes, including Halo. just hide the hypervisor from the guest

    • TBUK

      @VictorDavid29 ...and that's exactly why SOG said he wouldn't be playing Valorant. Having a kernel-level anti-cheat is a major security flaw, incredibly unnecessary, and just causes more issues than it fixes.

      @Justin LaBarge settings for most games stored in steam userdata folder or in documents. Sure, there might be some outliers that could be installed inividually, all other library just shared.

    Are you sure running them in a VM is a good idea? If I recall correctly, some anti-cheats are not friendly when they detected that they're in a VM.

    Nice video, I love the tech but I feel pretty conservative about having my rig close. Looking at this setup everything feels kinda wrong even compared to cloud gaming and to make it even worse that fact that everything is on a single rig makes me anxious about privacy. I mean a single point of failure for all of the family data.

    • UncleFred12

      I really don't understand why they wouldn't just build 5 seperate PCs if they needed them. I feel like this setup will be janky and will eventually be replaced with PCs anyway.

  • SlowFastDog

    Constructive feedback: As somebody new to VM's trying to run a 1650 to get my partner into gaming, nothing in this video screams "look here, google this or this is what's needed to do it yourself". There's also not a huge lot of detail about what was done differently in previous videos to avoid error 43. For better video engagement, someone with the personality of Sarah Butt on her first day should atleast understand what link to click on for more details. Also I almost didn't click on this because the "My wife will hate me" titles are getting a bit repetitive.

    It would be nice if you'd also talk about games that you can't run on this setup: Game devs that prevent or even BAN people that run their games in a virtualized env.

    • Hudson Hamman

      @LifeWulf yup. And there's not guarantee Riot won't apply this to their other games, too, as a standard.

    • LifeWulf

      @Hudson Hamman the absurd level of trust you need to have in Riot to never do anything shady and that the anticheat itself will never be compromised… not to mention locked FoV and aspect ratio… I truly do not understand people that play Valorant.

    • Hudson Hamman
      Hudson Hamman

      @MisterBloodBunny that's because you've installed a detection system at Ring 0 of your OS, meaning it boots up as you press power. It's one of the reasons I don't play Valorant and I am no longer playing Riot games.

    • Shuroii

      @Ilya Pavkin you can turn this off, but it's annoying to do

    • Shuroii

      @Chloe Fletcher those are good reasons for sticking to licenced software, yeah. You can tell qemu to reset the RTC clock when the VM boots so that the amount of cpu clock cycles your CPU did prior to booting the VM won't show up. As for CPU, you can just click the "copy host topography" option and it'll show the correct CPU model and core layout. As for core count, you can technically just tell windows it has more cores than it actually does, or you can give it the cores it also uses to run the hypervisor (this comes with an obvious performance loss/instability risk) to show that it's an unmodified CPU of the correct SKU.

    Been running a Supermicro box at work for about a year now with 4 GPUs (Quadro P2000), VMs have been stable and easy setup. Honestly took your previous videos as inspiration and it worked great.

    I'm glad there's finally someone at LTT who knows that CSGO with bots is really CPU intensive (it was painful when you'd do a budget build and CS would run bad because it was with bots) Now if only he knew CSGO is free now and they didn't need to faff around with different games for ages.

    I’m sure someone else has already mentioned but; unraid doesn’t really run ‘off’ the USB - it boots off it then loads most things into memory. Yes some config is written back to the USB occasionally but only a small amount.

  • HappyAlly77

    I mean you would logically run each VM on their own SSD, which is one thing unraid does really well, while keeping everything syncd in the same array

  • PhilfreezeCH

    As a side note, you can actually fit two mini-ITX boards into one 19“ rack, so you could actually easily have two PCs per rack. So assuming 4U per rack you could fit 5 entire PCs into 12 U rack space which isn‘t all that bad. I think if you plan it properly you could probably even fit three mini-ITX boards into one rack (the boards themself fit but you might have to stagger them because the cards are longer; you would have the arranged in an L-shape with the PSU in the ‚hole‘). So that lowers it to 8U.

    • Taylormade2350

      @Phillip Mbise you don't run any splitters lmao and he literally has like 3000 watts just to run that one motherboard. There are literally multiple psus so not sure what your point is.

    • Igor

      @Lars Radtke more like 30w and 300w. No need to be overdramatic. Realistically, you will almost never hit the full power limit of all parts of your PC by just gaming. My 6700xt and 5600x PC draws like 200-250w, depending on the game. At least that's what my kill-a-watt tells me.

    • Lars Radtke

      @Igor yes, I Know, there is a difference between 30W and 1600W...

      @Lars Radtke good APUs are still APUs... yes, AMD makes great ones. But they are nothing compared to a full GPU.
