Re: Stockfish 10 and 2nd Gen Ryzen Question

Hey thanks for the reply. Sorry to be dense but what would the command line instructions be? And also, on my Stockfish I have x64, POPCNT and BMI2. The syntax is presumably identical for the assorted SF versions, as well as ASMFish and Cfish, etc. programs that are based on SF. From a command promp...

I don't understand why you want to buy a Card which is already obsolete.

If I was in the market for a new Graphic Card...

LCZero GPU memory requirements?

Looking to by a 'basic' card to run the engine, a modest used GTX 1060, or just maybe a 1070 if I can find a screaming deal. (Anything wrong with a GTX980?) Is 3 GB enough, or should I pop for the 6 GB version. And do all the 3 GB 1060 models come with 128 fewer CUDA cores activated?

Thanks

You'll find a wide variety of hardware. IMO, older server hardware can offer a great bang-for-the-buck value. Be sure to get plenty of memory to support large hash tables when running overnight "thinks."
