Re: DDR5 RAM is coming in 2021

Is anyone fired up about this? I find it interesting. It's good to know that faster memory is becoming available, and that will probably have the effect of making current memory cheaper. I'm not "fired up" about it though. What I am excited about is SOC technology. What I'm seeing here is: * very p...

I have a ThinkPad w/Ryzen7 4800U + 16 GB DDR5 Dual channel + 256 GB M.2 super fast SSD.
I guess you mean DDR4?
I thought Lenovo only puts 4750U Pro not 4800U in their laptops. Which model is that?

Re: larger nets for SF?

Because Fat Fritz has put fear into their hearts. This usurper has beaten us with very, very, very little resources: http://www.cegt.net/40_40%20Rating%20List/40_40%20All%20Versions/rangliste.html Now, they know they were wrong, but they are careful to react because they don't want to look stupid. ...

Re: Speed of Lc0 in the new Intel GPU's?

Does anyone have any news about the speed of Lc0 in the new Intel GPU's? Pathetic is the answer you are looking for. Unless your GPU is GTX 1030 or something from an early last decade. Than CPU performance might be in the same order of magnitude (but still slower). Is that because they dont have te...

Re: We are past the stage where the OS has become the virus

But a driver for a usb-mouse is the same on both systems. Yeah right, USB/mouse driver is relevant, you couldn't have picked up the more trivial example. Take a hobbyist ARM SoC based board with PCIe slot and try running RTX card on it with Linux kernel and then we can talk about compatibility and ...

Looks interesting but what is the hardware for the chess engine?
Whatever hardware it is, it's able to run SF which means it can destroy Carlsen or any human on max strength. So unless you are gonna use it for analysis hardware is totally irrelevant.

Re: We are past the stage where the OS has become the virus

Linux running on Pi is certainly not the same Linux running on your desktop Yes it is. Ok, recompiled to target the ARM processor. But apart from that: same stuff. Even with gui. You can run e.g. the XFCE window manager smoothly both on your pi as on your laptop. XFCE is quite common. Lol ofc not. ...

Re: We are past the stage where the OS has become the virus

Well here's a recent Pi - link . It uses an SOC (hence there's not much of it), and it costs £4.80. That's worth repeating: it costs £4.80. Oh - and you're not going to be running Windows on it! :lol: Still think a computer should be a single device that meets all the needs of all possible users? :...

Re: We are past the stage where the OS has become the virus

As first hand experience in end user support (i.e. not counting my own machines), I can state that I stopped doing any kind of Windows support in my near family because Windows has become too much of a hassle. I offer going Linux and doing full support, or else letting them be on their own. Guess w...
