My new Laptop in 2029...

Post by smatovic » Thu Jun 20, 2019 6:29 am

The display of my Lenovo T61 laptop from 2008 went broken, so I had the choice
to buy a new Lappy for some thousand bucks, or to repair and upgrade my oldie
for some hundred. I decided to repair and upgrade, and it is remarkable how well
10 years old hardware still suits for surfing the web, doing office, or for web-
programming. Multithreaded, or ANN based, computer chess is another topic of
course...the only thing I miss, is a fast PCIe based SSD. So I plan to use my
oldie for another 10 years, and buy a new Lappy in 2029, here my aimed specs:

- 8K Ultra HD display
- 32 core CPU with 3-5 GHz
- 4 TB of non-volatile high-bandwidth memory
- 32 TB SSD

My upgraded T61:

- WXGA+, 1440x900 display
- 2 core CPU with 2.5 GHz
- 4 GB DDR2 memory
- 120 GB SSD SATA II drive

I think, in the future, laptops will have unified memory.
So : 128 TB of 3D XPoint memory ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3D_XPoint )

I guess with 128 TB RAM, approaches like MCTS, that store the game tree, will
start to make more sense than using it only for TT.

Well, Leela probably already is the strongest engine in the world, not too bad if you ask me.

Yes, ofc you are right, MCTS is already here.

I just meant that in future a billion nps cpu + tera bytes of main memory could
lead to some alternative search techniques, or so.
