Re: get a tr3 workstation configured

Hmm, you seem to search in three classes, desktop PC, workstation and server. With servers the noise level and heat production does not matter, so you are free to pick 2 socket systems and up to 8 or 10 gpus. The question I ponder on is how to put up to two CPUs and up to four GPUs in an desktop or ...

Re: get a tr3 workstation configured

In Hamburg/Germany we have Delta Computer as provider for multi-socket, multi-gpu workstations, servers, and HPC.

For example:

They also offer Nvidia DGX stations and servers, but have otherwise no water-cooled systems...

Re: get a tr3 workstation configured

On the first look these seem to be machines for gamers... there are also overclocked machines by 8pack, but I do not like their blinkenlights https://www.caseking.de/en/pc-systems/premium-systems/8pack Bizon offers also a dual Epyc workstation system, the X-8000 https://bizon-tech.com/bizon-x8000.ht...

I wonder if the relentless advance of the machine was a factor in Gary Kasparov's retirement?

Re: Configure a threadripper 3 workstation with up to 4 GPUs

As a gearhead you are always able to underbid pre-assembled systems. You can not compare self-picked parts of an own-build system with an stress- tested, build-to-order, OS-pre-installed, warranty-given system.

Re: What is the purpose of chess engines?

This is all nice but reminds me on STAR trek 5: why does god need a space ship ?! Why does chess need this enormous hardware? When I said programmers have no new ideas I did not thought about using more cores. Come on Thorsten, you are really a killjoy, we have the new neural network toys finally w...
