Re: Zenmastur vs Ovyron No it's not another GROB II!

3r1k2/5p2/5r1p/1P1P4/3R4/8/5PB1/6K1 b - - 0 13 My Stockfish-dev has been searching this position now for many days (with 6-man tables, and with some forward/backward guidance supplied by me). I'm happy to share the current numerical eval, but only if both players give consent. If you want to share ...

Re: SSD SATA Recommendation

Yes, the SSDs measure very close to their performance spec. I have an odd mix because I have (on the card) one Gigabyte and 3 Sabrent SSDs (all 2 TB). The Sabrent's were a little cheaper and almost as fast. I was worried that the odd mix might cause problems but I have not seen any. I also have a 1...

Re: SSD SATA Recommendation

a 3 or 4 drive raid array with 10-15Gb/sec and ~3,000,000 IOPS sustained is likely needed so actually we are talking about software RAID-0 (under Windows it will be 99% built-in raid support, Aorus just GUI front-end) Here they tested Samsung 983 DCT (1TB, NVME PCIE x4 version) https://www.pugetsys...

Re: SSD SATA Recommendation

If you have a really fast CPU it matters a lot to use the m.2 drives. My 3970x was definitely bottlenecked by using a 5MB/Sec thumb drive. The 1 TB thumb drive would saturate at 100% and the NPS rate would go to 10% of the full NPS. Changing to ultra-fast m.2 SSDs I see no slowdown whatsoever and a...

Re: SSD SATA Recommendation

Did you even bother looking at the links to the cards I posted? Read the first one I did. Also I've downloaded PDF Manual from manufacturer. It states it's not a RAID at all. It's just piece of plastic to mechanically handle up to 4 M.2 cards. Each M.2 card is traced to x4 number of lanes. That is ...

Re: SSD SATA Recommendation

I know about speed of SSD or speed of PCI-E. I ask whether exist any RAID controller which has at least any one of this feature: 1) support RAID-0 with more than 2x interleave, 4x 0+0+0+0 interleave. No matter slow or fast, just supporting this kind of logical configuration. 2) any RAID controller ...
