Turing GPU Requirement
The xx network BetaNet requires a Nvidia Turing GPU due to upgrades to the microarchitecture of the shaders granting an order of magnitude increase in performance for the specific workloads used. The mul units have been increased to 32 bits, which greatly increases the speed of the modular exponentiation and modular multiplication which are some of the core cryptographic operations of the cMix protocol.

Specs can be found on page 3-4 of Beta Node Handbook

Hello. Now ryzen 5 2600 is installed. Is it strictly required to replace CPU?
~15% perfomance

Yes, please check out the hardware requirements in this post:

Ok. I’ll put 3600. Already found on the aftermarket

You mean you will replace with a AMD Ryzen 7 2700x?

i’ll install AMD Ryzen 5 3600.

Should I proceed with upgrade? Am I selected as a node runner?

I suggest to wait for the final decision. You will have a grace period to set everything up.

That will be underspeced. No vote from me then.

Sorry I’ve missed “x”. I’ll get AMD Ryzen 5 3600x
Also will get 970 EVO.

The minimum requirement is a AMD Ryzen 7 2700x.

Just checked again in the handbook. Your AMD Ryzen 5 3600x meets the specs. You have my vote then!


Nice. How many votes do I need?

In the end it will be the xx node team which will make the final selection. Votes from the community will just serve as some sort of guidance.

CAn you awnser the last 5 questions?

node will be ready till the end of this week

so, the final hw is (node+gw):

ryzen 5 3600xt
asus prime x570-p
ddr4 [email protected]
gigabyte rtx 3070
samsung 970 evo

cuda 11.1 ubuntu 20

will 100mbit be enough or better upgrade to 1000?
