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.

Re: My predicted 3rd Gen threadripper prices

I am totally fickle when it comes to architecture and manufacturer. If Intel gets crushed by the pressure and starts giving away their CPUs at an enormous loss, so that they actually become more cost effective than AMD chips, I won't just buy one, I will buy a bushel basket full. I know that doing t...

Re: Fritz 17

There are some among the GPL crowd that believe if they give you a pan, then you must give away everything you cook in it. Even if you eat the food, you belong to the GPL, as does your house and eventually the entire planet. They eventually gave up on that model, since (early on) they tried to apply...

Re: My predicted 3rd Gen threadripper prices

I don't see the 24 core higher than $1,000. There are 1.5 times as many cores in the 24 core TR as in the 16 core Ryzen. $1000 is only 1/4 more than $750. You would be nuts to buy the 16 core part, when the far more powerful part (1.5x the core count) is only $1000. But we should know the answer to...

Re: Xiphos 0.6

I made a statically linked version. I only built for SSE and not BMI. But if you use my makefile, it will make a static version for you for whichever you build.

Re: oldie but goody

I would be interested in trying to compile it with gfortran, g95 and the like. Some of them have flags that allow older standards.
I expect that there would be OCR bugs, but those will probably be easy to find.

Re: Stockfish with and without contempt

If you create a git branch with the change, you can just pull master into it and it will auto merge as long as no changes have been made to the contempt code upstream. but I need the correct score. Well, the chances you aren't getting that are about the same regardless. Let's call it an unbiased sc...

Re: Stockfish with and without contempt

It seems to me that you should just disable dynamic contempt entirely, reduce base a bit if you feel 24 is too high and be done with it. That will likely give you the results you are after much sooner than a perfect eval for SF or any other engine comes into existence. That is exactly what I do, ev...
