If you're going to do that I'd probably buy one e5-2620 rather than 2.
> I'm also wondering if I should also wait till march or april for Haswell.
If you wait for Haswell in April that will be the desktop format - it won't be available in the Xeon format then.
> It's just that very few people have a dual Xeon setup to make it a real heavy weight fight. Whatever you decide I thank you for considering it.
Well my machine is also available to rent most of the time.
Anyway, if there's any news I can share, I'll let you know
i would like as many opinions on this as possible
> im curious,would houdini 3 be as strong as the rybka cluster if givin the same amount of time per move? example.....100 games at 30 sec per move for each of them, who would come out on top?
> i would like as many opinions on this as possible
All you will get is opinions until someone rents it and tries it.
> Or until you get a match played between the Rybka team and the Houdini team. Even then, you could have virtually anything happen. In a recent SSDF match between Deep Fritz 12 and Deep Rybka 4, the match was tied after 10 games until Rybka started running away with it.
Yes, we need 100 games....so someone with deep pockets!

May I ask why (as it would seem) Rybka Cluster 188 Cores did not show a 32 ply (or longer) line (it would appear that it shoved only a 16 ply line)?
>May I ask why (as it would seem) Rybka Cluster 188 Cores did not show a 32 ply (or longer) line
It is set up to display a pv length of at most 14. It's adjustable.

Thanks for the reply.
May I ask if it is adjustable within Fritz chess interface when using Rybka Cluster in ChessBase Chess Cloud (or it is an internal setting)? Thanks.
16 core xeon?
16 core AMD bulldozer?
How much RAM?
I recently bought Chessbase 12 (and Deep Fritz 12) specifically to use the Engine Cloud, and especially Rybka Cluster.
I got a valid Playchess.com user name and can log into Playchess.com.
However, whenever I try to use a Cloud Engine, I get one of two error messages from either CB12 or DF13:
"The maximum number of accounts has been reached" or "Serial # invalid".
Chessbase does not respond to emails. I was hoping you might know something about this problem.
They are the only people who can help. The guy you need help from is Steffen Giehring so address the email to him and am sure he will help.
It can take a few days as they can get really busy with number of support emails they get on a daily basis.
