I will try to answer but I am not yet an expert on this:

- Is it really one computer or two sticked together?
- appears to be 4 independent units with 2 power supplies between them.
- Can I install Windows for that?
- I think from the Supermicro site that this is basically certified only to run CentOS but it is likely other OSs would work. Can't guarantee though.
- Is it possible to add few more standard hard disks (ones for desktop computers)?
- It has a bunch of hot-swappable drive bays and as far as I can tell only one tier of those (out of three) is populated. So you can add disk but I am not not sure what types of disk it takes.
- Compare it with a desktop using one latest AMD cpu, say a Ryzen Threadripper 16 cores / 32 threads, which one is stronger for chess?
- This would not compete with a Threadripper, it has the older Opteron chips which had pretty poor performance on a per-core basis. The main advantage is that it has lots of cores.


From Ipman chess:
47.371.167 nps
4x AMD Opteron 6276 @2.3ghz
64threads

I think my machine is about like yours

43.214.379 NPS
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X @4.0Ghz
32threads
pop
Monstru
That is the high end threadripper

So a hair faster than top threadripper (Though the Epyc chips blow its doors off)
