Re: What I really want in a system...

I started thinking about what would be an Idea machine. The idea I came up with is for AMD to design a new CPU that uses the defective chiplets ( i.e. chiplets with less than 6 usable cores on them but do have a working memory controller. Putting four of these on the chip would give the cpu 16-core...

Re: buying a new computer

"Own power plant" for 100 extra W, seriously??? You can run it for a full month non-stop to accumulate the same amount of energy as one charge of Tesla Model 3 car. "Own power plant"....it is not uncommon that people have solar plants on their roof, I know some gauchos who own windmills. Let us ass...

Re: buying a new computer

Someone ever considered a refurbished workstation? I got a HP Z620, I7, 2.8-3.5Ghz, 20 cores, 40 threads, 16Gb ram, 500Gb SSD, 2 x 1 TB harddisk for under 1000 euro with 2 year guarantee. ...unless you have your own power plant and running 24/7, I guess it pays off to invest in CPUs/GPUs based on s...

Re: ChessBase's prophecy of 2004 fulfilled in 2019

I myself was surprised, but Texel 1.07 at 4000 nodes/ move I speculated pretty firmly to be in 2000-2100 FIDE Elo range at 45min + 15s. Can you beat or draw consistently Texel at 4000 nodes/move at this TC? If not, then the result might be an artifact due to Texel's inability to capitalize on tacti...

Re: ChessBase's prophecy of 2004 fulfilled in 2019

Yes, 2000 FIDE Elo for NN11248 might be reasonable, my estimation for Texel is 2100 +/- 100. I vaguely knew that 1xxxx nets were stronger than 3xxxx nets and early 4xxxx nets with a single node (no search), but I didn't know that late 4xxxx nets became the strongest at 1 node too. Anyway, it seemed...

Re: The Mac Pro is back - finally

Hmm, Apple ships them with an 2*2 AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPU option, up to 16384 cores, 128 GB HBM, 56.4 TFLOPs fp32, 112.8 TFLOPs fp16 in sum, so the new Mac Pro competes with Nvidia's DGX-1 Station with 4 Voltas, and these are pricey, 37K to 52K Euros... so the question is, which dude will tune L...

The new zen machines will have PCIe 4 communication.
July 7th, I think, for up to 16 cores. A bit more wait for something beefy.
We know that there will be a new threadripper, but timing for that one is shrouded in mystery
7/7 only Ryzen's. 3rd gen Zen's not before Q1 2020.
