I usually average about 300 Kn/s in IA mode...can someone post their numbers? Please be specific in your answers (R3 Dynamic or Human, overclocked? ram? hash size? etc.).
I heard the Harpertown is even faster...can someone provide a link for this cpu and a recommended motherboard for it? I'm curious if it's only a bit more than a QX9650 then perhaps I should get that instead. Though again, I'm not sure what speed boost I can expect from an overclocked Q6600 @ 3.6GHz to a harpertown (using R3 x64). I doubt they're faster anyway...after all, the Xeon harpertown only costs between $300 & $900 (http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProdList&cmd=pl&id=CPU.606)
Thanks in advance.
This is all R3 x64.
Any idea which cpu this would be exactly?
1663kN/s Intel 5x8 Harpertown Cluster 40 CPU
Nice speeds there. Though I'm not sure what he means by 5x8 and cluster. Is that 5 cpus at 8 cores each resulting in the name "cluster"? And what motherboard has 5 cpu sockets anyway? Assuming there is one, the price must be like $10,000 for the cpu and motherboard I'm guessing.
> Anyhow, it is way outdated, Lukas now has a cluster of almost 60 cores (if not more?).
Yes, 72 cores now. And I guess Lukas will add another machine very soon. :-)

I strongly disagree. The best correspondence players are those that develop a symbiotic relationship with their chess engines. When the tactical wizardry of the engine is combined with human sagacity, strategic planning and creativity the end result is a chess player that is capable of playing chess at a level that is much stronger than the sum of its parts. No amount of hardware can compensate for the human element. There will never be an engine-only CC world champion.
Wouldn't be sure about that ;) But it would be quite a bit :)
