Hi all,

One question:
for Threadripper 3990X which windows 10 is suggested?
I mean, Windows 10 Pro is OK or do I need to use the Enterprise version?
Thanks in advance,
Best regards,

I am using Windows 10 Pro after 1st trying Linux.
Linux is fine with the Threadripper - faster than Windows 10 Pro. As it it turns out , the Nvidia Super cards , like the RTX 2060 Super ,can be problematic. Suposedly , 20.04 LTS will address the issues. With Huge Pages , Linux was way faster - about 15 % , but once activated Large Pages a d out in the large page code , that cut down the difference to about 5%.

Windows 10 Pro is fine for the Threadripper

I use cutechess for matches , and Winboard for analysis. Cutechess provides native UCI support , which is better for running matches with UCI engines. Winboard use an adapter for UCI engines , fine for analysis , not great for running matches. CuteChess does not have an analysis feature.

Fritz gui is best for analysis. Cutechess or gui for engine matches.

I am using Windows 10 Enterprise which should see up to 256 threads, but I can only see 64 cores.

How can I activate all 128 threads?

Thanks.

What is the GUI that you are using?
Arena (for instance) cannot see the correct count on Threadripper.
