How to use SF-NN embedded

Once one has downloaded embedded SF-NN and installed it in the chess GUI, what else does one have to do, if anything, with the .bin (network) file? Or does one completely ignore the location for the parameter (in GUI) of the network file?
I don't see the advantage of embedding.

Re: Stockfish Abrok August 24 Engine Failure

@ Guenther: "So the question remains, is the NNUE file in the same folder as the binary, where it should be now? Only if it is, the newer binaries will run at all!" If the GUI has a parameter for the location of the NNUE net, then it would not be necessary for the NNUE net and the binary to be in th...

Best net

@ MikeB: "I see now they are both the same, scripts and makefiles that pull them must be capturing the one that has all the downloads." To the non-expert, this remains a mysterious question: what is the best NNUE net? Is it the most recent one here: https://tests.stockfishchess.org/nns Or is the bes...

Stockfish NNUE for analysis of positions (Tabias)

@Raphexon
Thanks for the reply. I did mean AVX2.
I have dual Xeon-E5-2686-V3. So you are advising bmi2 rather than SSSE?

When to check NNUE box

"The idea is to use NNUE only on quite balanced material positions."
This was based on the fact that SF-NNUE searches much more slowly than classic SF on most hardware. But if one has fast hardware, so that SF-NNUE runs fast enough, then why not always use SF-NNUE?

Speed difference

"speed differences between SF and SF-NNUE". That is a factor I have often seen mentioned in a comparisons between SF and SF-NNUE. However, that seems like an exaggerated concern if one has even a halfway decent CPU setup. On my 4-year-old dual Xeon Intel-Xeon-E5-2686-V3 (2 x 18 = 36 physical cores),...
