  1. From a programming perspective, changing the way the game uses parallelism isn't something that can change at any point, it's a fairly binary issue, either they will be changing it or not. Will wait until more news arrives.
  2. For sure, but the reason I asked here is because even in the announcements its always new features, never core engineering stuff. Was hopeful that someone from SI frequented the forum and could confirm
  3. I know this topic has been discussed a lot in various posts but it bears asking straight up: will FM19 look to leverage more multi core performance to make simulation faster? At the moment the vast majority of the work is put on one core while the others handle background tasks, and this actually penalizes systems with more cores but a lower base clock speed. I know that features aren't being announced yet, but as a general design decision, is this something that the FM devs are thinking about? Cheers, //np
  4. Are there plans for FM19 to use more multi core performance to allow simulating to be faster?
  5. As discussed previously, performance is indistinguishable from my i7-7700k, confirming what i always suspected: SI don't care about performance.
  6. I'm a blockchain developer so I have a full blockchain with tons of dummy transactions running at all times.
  7. None of the above. It arrives today, will post benchmarks later tonight.
  8. Just ordered this: <quote> Processor: Intel Core i9-7900X CPU, 10 Cores, 3.3 - 4.3GHz Overclocking: Overclock my CPU by up to 20% Case: Corsair Crystal 570X RGB Tempered Glass Case - Black Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Graphics Card CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro H100i V2 CPU Cooler Thermal Paste: Prolimatech PK-3 Nano Particle Thermal Paste Case Cooling: Corsair HD120 RGB LED High Performance 120mm PWM Fan - Three Pack with Controller Motherboard: Asus Prime X299-Deluxe Motherboard Memory: 32GB DDR4 3000MHz Memory (4 x 8GB Sticks) OS Drive: 1TB Samsung 960 EVO M.2 PCIe Solid State Drive Solid State Drives: 1TB Samsung 850 PRO Solid State Drive Secondary Hard Drive: Seagate 6TB BarraCuda Pro 7200RPM Hard Disk Additional Hard Drives: 2xSeagate 12TB BarraCuda Pro 7200RPM Hard Disk Cable case for additional HDDs or SSDs: Pre-Install Cabling for Additional Solid State Drive, Pre-Install Cabling for Additional Hard Drive Optical Drive: Not selected Power Supply: Corsair RM1000x 80 PLUS Gold 1000W PSU Sound Card: Asus Strix Raid Pro Gaming Soundcard Set Additional Ports and Bluetooth: 4-Port PCI Express USB 3.0 Card, Dynamode 3-Port Firewire Card </quote> Will let you know how it performs
  9. I write algorithms that simulate way more than the FM world (financial trading). I don't understand why it's so hard when so many other games have figured it out.
  10. The simulation is still slow as hell and frankly not up to scratch for 2018. Are there any plans to look at this?
  11. Can we get a response from someone on the FM technical team on this?
  12. As a systems programmer its incredibly frustrating because if you compare FM to any major strategy game, the amount of computation it has to do is at least an order of magnitude (without getting into AI stuff). My computer, which runs machine learning stock trading algorithms at high frequency, has been sim-ing all day with just the 4 major leagues and has gotten up to 2033. If all they announced as a feature for next year was a data update and it was up to par with the rest of the industry, I'd gladly pay more for it.
  13. Having monitored it for the last couple of hours, the game isn't even using more than 10% of my CPU whilst simulating...
