AMD Ryzen Threadripper

As a side note: I purchased a 3960x this morning. The MB I'm looking at is the ASROCK TRX40 Creator. It has 3 NVMe slots and 4x PCIe Gen. 4 X16 slots. So it can support up to 4 GPU's of your choice! :D Regards, Zenmastur Zen: That is great. The TR 3960X was the ideal processor I wanted all along. I...

Re: AMD Ryzen R9 3950X new build

I would want 3 NVMe internal drives for Win10; 7-man TBs; everything else. (No more HDDs in any personal computer systems.) Each NVMe drive uses 4x PCIe slots. 3x NVMe drives is 12x PCIe lanes, I'm not even sure if an AM4 motherboard would support so many NVMe SSDs. ASUS PRIME X570-PRO mobo: Expans...

AMD Ryzen R9 3950X new build

Thanks to Zen, Dragon & Dann for the replies. Zen's 3950X build looks to be a value system for all the components. However, Giga got rather negative reviews on Amazon so I would be looking for a mid-level ASUS mobo if anyone has suggestions. So I would aim more for a mid-level 3950X build I would wa...

Re: AMD Ryzen R9 3950X new build

Thanks, corres, then until these issue are resolved with 3900 series, it seems best to either go with TR 2950X or wait till it's safe to go with R9 3950X or perhaps TR3960X (24 core; $1400, not as good a value as the other two but about 30% faster than TR 2950X. Do you have the url for the article a...

AMD Ryzen R9 3950X new build

Based on the benchmark tests for Nodes/sec http://www.ipmanchess.yolasite.com/amd- ... -bench.php ,
it seems that AMD Ryzen R9 3950X delivers the best value ($/nps). Can the experts like "corres" and others recommend best components for a new AMD Ryzen R9 3950X build.
Thanks, CMA

Actural cost/performance ratios

Approximate cost performance ratios for the R9 3900X, R9 3950X, Threadripper 3960X and Threadripper 3970X for a new build with a RTX2060 super and 64GB DDR4-3200 ram. The only specs that differ is the CPU, MB (AM4 vice TRX40), and power supply is larger for the two threadripper systems. Does not in...

Re: buying a new computer

Would it not be much better to wait till 11-12/2019 and get a much more powerful Threadripper system?

Re: Lc0 Evaluation Explanation

Zulli: Do you know the meaning of these terms: "P", "Q", "Q+U", & "V"? I am guessing that V = visits. But, as pointed out, Be2 does not have the highest V value of all the moves shown. Or does the lc0 site have an explanation of the parameters, since when I searched here for "visits", it gave me no ...
