I’ll use recommended hardware. I think it will be based on Ryzen 5 3600

More important is a RTX 2070 gpu from nvidia, as the matmul calculations are based on the tensor module. For the cpu i would recommend a 8 core cpu (16 threads) minimum ryzen 2700 … i personaly use a 3700.


And what do u think about rtx 3060?

no clue yet as not out yet… will probably buy one to test it out when they are released

strong candidate

What is the Ryzen 5 3600, 6 core problem?
