Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

Streaming. media and caching web content, apps that use caching and virtual storage, cloud-sync, etc. No way this would be 164 GB every day. It's a laptop, not a server. In cloud solutions there usually is a server in one end.. and depending on change frequency and size of cloude storage (can be hu...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

600 P&E cycles for QLC??? I'd say you are clueless about real life performance of modern NAND Flash. That's what Samsung offers as warranty. They also have quite some over-provisioning because what's sold isn't 512 GB, but 500 GB in the small model, and one GB is counted as 1,000,000,000 bytes. The...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

SOCs are a good idea IMO: they're cheap, the components are close together increasing speed, and a lot of them are seriously light on power consumption. Some of them can also do a lot of processing very quickly. I think an SOC could be a very good idea for a Chromebook, for example, and happily be ...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

I have no idea. Then again, I wouldn't recommend a laptop that has the flash storage soldered instead of using a proper M.2 socket. The main reason why Apple doesn't use M.2 is so that they can shut out market competition and demand insane prices. For changing from 512 GB to 2 TB flash, Apple charg...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

Arena was running on Windows 10 ARM64 under Parallels M1, but the virtual image is on an external USB 3.0 512 GB SSD (together with Sygyzy 6-man Tablebases). The only way for me to know if is it the cause, is to stop continuous usage of both. I really hope that is an Apple software bug, solved with...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

@Acepoint.de I'm really worried about the soldered SSD stressed by 6-man tablebases and on countinous usage: Checked now: I'm a 86% after less than 3 monshs. I hope that external Thunderbolt 3 SSD will be bootable by Mac mini M1, I suspend my chess engines tornament for a while... :cry: https://9to...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

I haven't read the whole thread - is there a conclusion? Does a light laptop with an Apple M1 SOC get roughly the same amount of analysis on one charge as a laptop with a heavy battery and big power-hungry CPU? Or is it just too difficult to compare? Edit: the post that appeared while I was writing...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

One of the arguments is that otherwise, the winner will just be the AMD laptop with the largest battery that you can find - but that doesn't say anything about AMD vs. M1, only about what batteries are being offered. However, the thread revolves around M1 silicon, not M1 batteries. Airlines current...
