I bought the Lenovo 3995 with 512GB of memory and 2 Nvidia 5000 GPUs for work. About 6x faster on Matlab for what I was doing. $17K. Paid my the company I do consulting for. Nice machine. Added 8TB Sabrent m.2 SSD about 3000 MB/sec.

@StobiWankenObi 

 

Sorry to hear that but no doubt your system should be fine now. 

 

Comparing with results at the Pixinsight Benchmark page https://pixinsight.com/benchmark/ there are several reports with the 3990x in your range (all have 64GB and up memory) UNDER WINDOWS. More results with PI version 1.8.8.6 and only 2 with 1.8.8.7 but that shouldn't change much.

 

The real high benchmarks for the 3990x (30000 - 50000) all were with Linux. Probably the best way to go - maybe it is really the 64 core Windows issue mentioned earlier. Windows Enterprise may be of help but I cannot remember to have seen any PI results with it.

 

 Just to make shure: you selected the 'apply global' button after entering the 10 swap disks in PI? (you see them after you go there next time). And maybe something to test: did you exclude anti-virus software to checking those directories?

Worth $4,000 for just the CPU? I'm not sure yet to be honest.

Ouch batman! That is a lot of cheddar for just CPU. I have an old Dell T7600 (released 2012) with dual Xeon which is 32 core x Intel Xeon E5-2680 @ 2.70Ghz and 32GB of RAM I also have two Samsung 256GB 960 EVO NVMe disks and I am pulling down the following stats with 5 swap folders and 32 for reading and righting threads in PixInsight

So what did I pay for it all? $1,591.81 from eBay. That was 6 years ago for now a 9 year old system and recently added a $45.98 NVIDIA NVS 310 512MB video card so I can do a large resolution on my 24" monitor. Also I am running Kubuntu 20.04. I just checked eBay and these systems are selling for $500-700 for anyone looking for cheap upgrade to run PixInsight much faster.
