Re: TR 3

With all those memory channels, I was thinking of putting in 4 of these in it: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2080-super/ Of course, just those four cards will pull a full kilowatt. So a big power supply is a must. Not to mention, I will eventually want a couple hundred TB ...

Re: buying a new computer

Without a doubt, those prices are low. But even at double the price, they are a better buy. The 3950 is $700 so the 24 core price might not be too far off (I expect $800 or more) The current (gen 2) 32 core threadripper is $1800 for the 32 core version.

Re: PGN standard, its improvement and standardization

For very high speed games, sending only the move is a lot better than sending the whole game state including the board. The moves aren't being sent over a 300 baud line, so "a lot better" doesn't hold water. Most testing done today is at ludicrously high speed (veiled "Spaceballs" reference). For i...

Re: PGN standard, its improvement and standardization

For very high speed games, sending only the move is a lot better than sending the whole game state including the board.

The best protocol would be a merger of the two, with redundant things thrown out.
