This thread talks about the effect of workers and speed using different GPUs.CMCanavessi wrote: ↑Fri Feb 15, 2019 2:16 pmCool, I will give it a test. With my GTX 1080 (non TI), how many workers should I use? May I keep increasing the number until the nps won't go up anymore? Is there a sweet spot? Is there some auto-detection routine? Is "guessconfigx" enough?smatovic wrote: ↑Fri Feb 15, 2019 1:53 pmest. 2000+ CCRL Elo on an highend GPUCMCanavessi wrote: ↑Fri Feb 15, 2019 1:48 pmHow strong is Zeta?smatovic wrote: ↑Fri Feb 15, 2019 1:12 pmJust did a quick check on Windows 7 with AMD Radeon HD 7750,Graham Banks wrote: ↑Fri Feb 15, 2019 10:05 amWouldn't that mean that a user couldn't run any other programs that use the GPU, even if there are many cores free?M ANSARI wrote: ↑Fri Feb 15, 2019 9:46 amI think GPU's being used for chess will be only a temporary thing as for chess a much better solution would be to use cards that are specifically designed to do NN and nothing to do with graphics. This will probably become very common very soon and some kind of hardware equation needs to be agreed upon if AB vs NN engine matches will take place. Most likely SF and Komodo and Houdini will become hybrid engines that use both NN and AB and thus will make full use of the CPU as well as the GPU.
i was able to run two Zeta v099k* instances in Winboard (ponder off) in a match,
and to play Rome Total War in 3D battle mode at the same time.
*note that currently Zeta utilizes a gpu only with about 50% but memory usage is configurable.
