Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Desktop Window Manager


Fatfish View Post
For any of you that have had problems with window docking / undocking and not opening in the same place every time, especially when you have multiple windows open on one screen, I've been using Ultraview Desktop Manager for some months now - it really makes it easy to tidy up the screen spaces and keep it the same way after every restart. I'm not affiliated with that vendor at all, just thought that this thread would be a place visited by folks who need to manage all the real estate on their desks.

Sorry guys, I had a brainfart, I previously used Ultraview but have been using DisplayFusion for the last few months. I like DisplayFusion (again, I not affiliated with that vendor at all.)

6 new screens just arrived : 6 X Philips 28" (3840 x 2160) 4K
I already have 6 similar screens (27" with lower resolution, i'm very happy with that setting)

Now waiting for the new hardware parts for the new trading machine to arrive...

OMG!

That's so cool

But to tell you the truth, I reducing my screens.
Had 8, then went to 6, and now I only have 4.
Had way too much information on them.

Regardless, I love to see setups like these

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

Warning with the noise with these cards!
And you can tell us the truth: this is a setup for X-Plane or Overwatch, not for trading purposes .
Or maybe for CUDA, then you have my blessing

Hi! How is 4k working together with NT7? are there scaling issues? cool build

I am glad I did not bother with a pension, I wisely invested my money in loose woman and booze.

I don't know yet, I only have my screens and i'm waiting for the components to arrive to assemble the new server
and test everything. NT is only a small part of my environment.
But i will post when i get to the results..
It will probably take another week, the RAM was missing in the inventory..

Coming..

New HW parts are expected to arrive tomorrow, shipment has been announced this evening.
the setup should be able to generate a total aggregated 18.3 TFLOPS..

I am already excited and curious to do some testing with it..

10core/20 thread I7-6950
128GB DDR4 dominator platinum RAM
1TB SSD pro
2 X GTX nvidia 1070 in SLI ( 2 X 8GB


cray 2 super computer had 1.9 giga flops in 1985 (this new setting is 10.000 faster
in 2012 a cray titan was able to produce 17.59 terra flops
the current super computer Sunway TaihuLight is able to produce 93 terraflops

my desktop will be 25% of worlds fastest computer, that is enough of an edge...

I will post some metrics as the setting is up.

It's actually 93 petaflops. You'd need a linear scaling of 4000 of your computer to get there.
