Re: 32-core 3.3 Ghz Arm CPU

My little 6-core i7-8700K is looking puny compared to the configurations being discussed here. Seems like a Threadripper 2990WX might be needed?

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.

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
