    Apparently, my existing computer is not equipped to handle the amount of memory needed to run all the simulations in a reasonable amount of time.  So, I purchased two computers to run side by side.  Before I transfer all my software over to both computers, will it be possible to run SQX on two computers at the same time?  Please advise.  Thanks.

    If you have two licenses you can run SQX on two computers at the same time.

    probably a more efficient approach would have been to sell the old computer and to buy just one more powerful computer that would have the same processing power as the two computers, its space and energy inefficient to run 2 medium computers

    I have one 2 year old one with SSD and 16GB DRAM.  It is the CPU that is the problem due to age.  So, I purchased a new PC with better CPU, but same 16GB DRAM.  And I think the DRAM is the problem.  So, I bought another PC with 64GB DRAM.  It just hasn’t come in yet.  As for the exiting old one, I am going to donate to charity.  Good for write off.

     

    Since my experience with SQX shows that DRAM is probably the most important thing, I will need to wait for that one to arrive and transfer all software over to that one.  SQX just emailed me stating I cannot run two PC’s at the same time unless I purchase another license.  CRap.

    Yeah.  I am not going to purchase another $1300 license.  I may just get FSB to supplement SQX.  Building an EA is expensive as hell!  And I haven’t even made one yet because it takes days to get a couple of strategies right now on my existing computer.

    what processor had the old computer and what processor does have the new one? adding more ram to the old one wasnt a solution?

    16GB of ram is way below the minimum

    Current computer has 16gb DRAM and CPU is Core i7-7700 @ 3.6ghx.  The first new one has 16gb DRAM and AMD Ryzen 7-Series – 3700X CPU.  The one I am waiting on is a custom 64gb DRAM and CPU Intel Core i5-10400F 4.30GHz.

     

    The bigger one was defective and was trying to replace it with the AMD rig.  So, if 16gb is not enough, I will need to take the AMD rig to best buy and get it upgraded to 64gb DRAM.

    from those 3 processors, Core i7-7700, AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and Core i5-10400F, the 3700X is the most powerful in most applications especially in those related to SQX generating.

    Immediately below comes the i7-7700 and to some distance behind is the i5-10400F. The i5 is the weakest and in my personal opinion, almost too weak to be used in SQX generating

    so i am not sure to which one you are referring to as “the bigger one” because technically, the 3700X would be the bigger

    in theory, another efficient approach (and in my mind, the best) would have been to simply upgrade the existing AMD platform, from 3700X to 3900X (replacing the processor) and adding more ram to 64GB.  I say in theory because in practice, it depends on the motherboard, PSU and CPU cooler and in some cases, you would have to replace some other components, but only in some cases, not mandatory. And to simply sell the i7 entirely.

    Thank you.  Based on this, I ordered 64gb DRAM for the AMD CPU one.  Will get this by Thursday.

     

    It is kind of interesting about the CPU’s.  The “big one” I am referring to was the one that I received that was defective (i5) and was supposed to have the best specs.  The one I was replacing was the i7 Intel which is 2 years old.

    i would recommend to upgrade to 3900X in the near future or even the new 5000 series of processors which will launch soon, usually when AMD launches new series, the old one, in this case the 3000 series will be heavily discounted so you can buy a 3900X much cheaper

    for the new 5000 series, you will have to wait for the motherboard manufacturer to issue a new BIOS version because it wont work otherwise

    with a 3900X or anything similar in performance, you will have plenty of processing power to even run the SXQ in multiple instances on the same computer (in some cases, for example for daily strategies)
