Re: If you could buy any single CPU system for chess . . .

Milos is probably talking about the cost of building a system himself. I don't have those skills or knowledge. If your footer actually means you have a PhD, then you are smart enough to watch a youtube video and build your own system. Theres very few things to screw up when building. I know enough ...

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX might be the way to go.
It does. Its about $5,000.
What the hell are you talking about 2990WX is $1750. With the board, memory, case and everything it is still well below $3000.
It would cost ~5k or a bit more to have a shop build it for me.

May I recommend that you don't get a dedicated machine for chess and use Google Cloud?
I just spent a few minutes looking at that option and it appears to be too expensive for lengthy dedicated service

Re: If you could buy any single CPU system for chess . . .

Depends on what you want. If you want the highest number of games completed in the shortest time than more cores is better. If you want the fastest analysis on a single engine then fewer cores but higher core frequency is better. Correspondence chess - devote ~95% of the CPU's resources to one prog...

Re: If you could buy any single CPU system for chess . . .

I see that TCEC now uses Dual 2699v4, which strongly suggests that the secret to CCC is "cores, cores, cores" There's no secret. Overall search speed is a function of clock speed multiplied by core count, allowing for search inefficiency as core count increases. The fastest systems will have many c...
