Since my computer sucks balls and I do not feel like getting a new one yet...does anyone have a suggestion for where to go to rent time on a machine that is processor heavy?

Also, I think I remember reading that GPU is worthless with NT GO since the coding is written for serial processing and thus parallel processing will not work.

I am looking for as many solutions as possible.

I tried looking into Amazon cloud service but I do not even know what I need to get this done. So much computer lingo.

thanks

I have several machines with Steadfast. You can check them out.

GPU is worthless, NinjaTrader does not use CUDA or etc for backtesting. The only platform I know of that does is Matlab, and perhaps R.

Amazon cloud service is not going to help you in my experience, due to the way the threading works. Your best bet is to lease a dedicated server from a hosting company. But "don't feel like getting a new computer" is really the wrong approach, in my opinion. The best use of your time and money is likely to upgrade your existing computer.

the coding is written for serial processing and thus parallel processing will not work.

A couple of questions/comments:

1. GPU/CUDA processing aside, my task manager shows all 4 cores cranking around 80% when I initiate GO (and back down to single digits when run is complete). This would seem to suggest multi-threaded (parallel) processing, no? Or is my understanding of parallel processing lacking?

2. I may be behind the curve as I am just discovering strat optimization, but it looks like interest here died on the vine 2 or 3 years ago. Same in the NT support forums. Did I miss something? Has optimization been debunked? Are the tools available to retail traders just not worth the time and effort? If not NT, PH and MOGO tools (which don't seem to have been updated for years), then what have traders moved on to?
