Re: How good is the RTX 2080 Ti for Leela?

I don't know from where people got the rumors that Nvidia crippled non-tensor fp16 math on 2080Ti. Milos has no idea what he is talking about... But it's not from Milos, it's from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_20_series Unless you're sayin...

Would you happen to know what LC0 parameters are used by TCEC?
PK
lc0 -t 4 --minibatch-size=512 --backend=multiplexing "--backend-opts=(backend=cudnn,gpu=0),(backend=cudnn,gpu=1)" --nncache=2000000

Re: Leela will use Net 10480 in TCEC Div3

We just submitted net id 10520. Most likely it will be the one used.

Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

Underpowered? What would be the necessary upgrade in your opinion, Kai? The gpus are not underpowered. 2x 1080Ti give about 22 teraflops of 32bit float performance (theoretically). What might happen is that they get too hot due to insufficient cooling. In that case they start throttling down signif...

Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

This was my reasoning and initial reaction also, though not public. I won't lie, when reading this it kinda comes back. This could have been done with a lot more grace. I still think it's ridiculous to call it a new engine. I can train a good network on human data in less than a week. Whatever. In ...

Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

FYI, ASilver replied to my message in LCZero forum: Alexander, I have pretty much said all I have to say on the matter, though I have no control over whether you accept my statements or not. I do not see any constructive outcome for any parties in pursuing a public argument on this, so I must decli...

Either you have difficulty with English, or the tongue-in-cheek comment... "As to whether it will be commercial, who can say... If I come out with something that's really spectacular and that outdoes Alphazero, very possibly." ...goes way above your head ! Bravo, Albert and TCEC, for creating the d...

Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

I am late to the party and never would have expected to fully agree with Milos. The snowflakes from the lc0 team have been conned. Albert Silver pulled a fast-one on them and now tries to lull them into compliance with all his sweet talk. The video that was released is absolutely outrageous and sho...

Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

I think this move may backfire and will hurt TCEC more than it will do good. People are not stupid and want diversity, not 32 clones of SF. Deus X will use lc0 with a custom net. Shouldn't be allowed imho. I agree, it seems rather difficult to me to justify allowing Deus X while not letting develop...
