Re: My predicted 3rd Gen threadripper prices

Wikipedia says the Zen 2 chiplets have 8 cores: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zen_2 I think it is only the older Ryzen 5 stuff that has multiples of 6. As far as production costs, you must also factor in the design and engineering costs, building the silicon fabs, advertising, etc., far more than th...

Re: Fritz 17

Okay, here's another one . Same argument. I don't really understand what you are saying. You may notice by examination that each page in the preview says, "Copyrighted material". Individual numbers are not copyrightable for obvious reasons. But a book of numbers is copyrightable. Now, mathematics i...

Re: Fritz 17

Guys, let me introduce you to: A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates It's just a book full of random numbers. It doesn't matter how were they produced, or who produced them, that specific series of numbers is protected by copyright, you can't just get the book and make copies for you...

Re: Fritz 17

I don't know how stuff works in Europe and other continents, but in the US, you do not have to do anything to get a copyright for your work. You have to register the copyright only if you want to pursue a lawsuit. But you do have to apply for a patent or trademark. So, if I write a post in this foru...

Re: Stockfish with and without contempt

Here is my definition of unbiased analysis: Engine A, playing white is analyzing position X. Engine B, playing black is pondering position X. If Engine A is another instance of Engine B, they should arrive at the same answer, within reasonable limits (smp uncertainty, etc). If the numbers are half a...

Re: My predicted 3rd Gen threadripper prices

I guess you were right on the CPU pricing. Which leaves AMD with a gaping hole in their product stack. Namely the price points between the $750 Ryzen 9 3950X and the $1400 Ryzen Threadripper 3960X. I suppose they could keep the Threadripper 2950X and 2970X alive to fill this gap in the interim. But...

Re: Fritz 17

No, it is just data. It is literally just a monster text file with a string of 27.9 million numbers each separated by a space. You cannot run it, just consult it. This is highly debatable. A compiled program is also just data which is interpreted by another program (the CPU hardware, developed itse...

Yes, in both cases AMD could catch up, but afaik AMD has nothing in pipe to counter these NVDIMMs by Intel.

Is there anything that prevents someone from popping a few of those NVDIMMs into their shiny new AMD box?

Re: My predicted 3rd Gen threadripper prices

Here first official prises: https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-threadripper-3970x-3960x-hedt-trx40-cpu-official/ $1999 for 32 cores.....I highly doubt the 64 cores will price at $2399 as wccftech suggests in that table Naturally. The 64 core price will be close to $4000. But it's an incredible bargain ...

Re: Stockfish with and without contempt

The only place where it matters, both in game play and analysis, is when the score is very close to zero after a good, long think. E.g. Well under a pawn.
