    I am not sure if there is such a topic on SQ forum but i think some of the members would be interested in relevant news regarding PC hardware. Main focus is the processor.

    also this would be of potential interest for beginners in SQ in choosing a particular configuration for their new system

     

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Rumor-AMD-Zen-3-architecture-could-run-four-threads-per-core.435660.0.html

    The x86 architecture has been hitting something of a wall lately but AMD looks like it could be set to inject it with a fresh breath of life. According to the rumor mill, the company has finalized the Zen 3 design and it introduces a new SMT4 feature that will allow each core to execute four threads simultaneously.

    state my opinion …. it is useless to run after last cpu 20,30,40,50 cores …. thinking that the combinations between building block exit entry rules stop loss trailing etc … etc are practically infinite or almost … so 1 million or 50 million strategies per hour are not enough to scan the possible combinations … if data is not pre-processed before
    I repeat, this is my little opinion

    Intel’s upcoming LGA 4667 platform to support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 for 10 nm+++ and 7 nm CPUs, launching 2021

    The first 7 nm server CPUs from Intel are expected to launch in 2022, so desktop-grade CPUs supporting those new features will be released later on.

    I have an older 16 Core Threadripper  1950x.

    Looking forward to Threadripper going to 64 cores for an upgrade.

    Does anyone know if the thread processing problems with windows has been resolved ?

    Otherwise the new multicore processors may not see much performance improvement.

    If you run  64 core processor with hyperthreading turned of SQ would use all cores. If you turned it on giving 128 threads you would have to run 2 versions of SQx with affinity splitted in taskmanager seperating the 2 versions.

    If SQx could be runned in Linux you can run 128 since Linux group first after 128 it is a windows problem not SQx

    there are some rumors and clues that a 64 core 3rd gen TR is in the works

    the only downsides are that it will probably be very expensive and most certain you have to wait for a new version of BIOS

     

    another alternative approach would be to buy the current 32 core 2990WX when AMD will launch the 3rd gen TR because AMD has always cut the prices with a significant amount, probably les than 1000 EUR in this case

    you can forget a BIOS update, you have to change the motherdoard

    thank you, i will try to post regularly and only the most relevant information for systems used in SQ.

    i am also thinking to start another thread, only with PC configurations and setups for those wanting a new system or an upgrade, with relevant tests and roundups
