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."

Leela wins Div4 with a round to spare.

Second place a fight between wasp and the AS clone of leela (with different weights file).
Given the drama surrounding Deus X, will Wasp advance to D3 in its place?

I doubt, that DeusX will be allowed to play in Div 3.

Re: Online chess engines on powerul machines - what are the options?

OK, so I need to do some analysis on powerful computer. I do not own one, but I feel ready to pay for renting it.
