Re: Time per gigatype RAM with NN engines to exhaustion

I bought a 2 TB PCIE4 SSD for my swap space. It does 5 gb/sec read and 4.4 gb/sec write.
With extended guarantee, I paid 500

Re: New engine releases 2019

So the last 2 months I've been caught up with the chess programming virus again. Nothing too serious as I don't have much of a test environment (just a quad core laptop). It came to a point where I couldn't do much improvement anymore without doing intensive testing. So here goes the latest version...

Re: Time per gigatype RAM with NN engines to exhaustion

I already have one, but I might buy another one of these:

I saw that the motherboard can handle it.

Time per gigatype RAM with NN engines to exhaustion

With an RTX 2080, how fast does it consume RAM? I have found that my 1080TI eats 32 GB in an hour, and the analysis slows to a crawl (and the machine starts to get balky). If you have 2x RTX2080, what is the maximum time you can analyze before RAM is exhausted with 64 GB and with 128 GB? Has anyone ...

Re: I bought a stop-gap machine

If you should plan to run it inside of an ordinary house, a sound proof box is necessary.
When the squirrel cage blowers hit full bore it sounds like a jet airplane taking off.
You can't watch TV in the same room with it, and conversations are difficult.

Re: I bought a stop-gap machine

Well, I am about to retire Ezekiel (my 64 core box that does about 47M NPS on the Asmfish bench). This new box will do more than twice the NPS at 1/3 of the power. If you want to pay for crating and shipping, I would send you that machine (but keep the sound proof box). Warning, it weighs 100KG, so ...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

Just an fyi, you can download a lot of the Mephisto engines as uci if you wanted to run them on the same hardware to compare. http://rebel13.nl/index.html Or you could also download my CB-Emu program, which emulates more than 200 chess computers (not only Mephisto, but also Fidelity, Novag, Saitek ...

I bought a stop-gap machine

I got a TR3970x which will be delivered in a few days. Only 2 2080 supers, but the price was so good, I could not hold off (about $7000 after tax and shipping). I think I will wait for the 7nm+ TR to get the next one, probably late 2020 or early 2021. I got one of those stupid fast AORUS PCIE 4 m.2 ...
