Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

Hi, What do you think about the claim that "Fat fritz" is stronger than Stockfish. Here is ChessBase article on this issue. Why are you posting false information, there is no claim by Albert that his Fat Fritz is stronger than Stockfish. Two, that is not Albert's style, he has more class than that....

Re: Booot 6.3 Release

Dropbox no longer allows direct downloads and their signup/login system is broken: "unable to complete this request" upon login. Using the Google account option leads to about 20 pages of CAPTCHAs. At any rate, there shouldn't be an account requirement to download a file that's supposed to be freel...

Re: Colossal Blunder by Houdini 6.03

I have only 5men here, because full 3-6men WDL+DTZ are >150GB and I need already a lot of space for other things. You could try if you can reproduce it with various settings. When you can/will find the room, that 150Gb is well worth it, Gunther. With a "high" endgame hash setting the speeed is _not...

Re: Chess Assistant, Stockfish, and multithreading

Frankly I haven't found any changes in the last 4-5 releases of CA - even the bugs appear to be the same. So, yes the perrsonalities is the same, and the sliders is sometimes quite annoying. Development for Chess Assistant has been frozen for quite some time, and they openly state this. Aquarium is...

Re: Ryzen 7 Computer

I read somewhere that the $599 box in question has a 300 watt power supply. If true, that might make overclocking difficult. Still, a heck of a deal. It's an open question how much you'd benefit from OC anyway. Compare the few extra k/ns with lower power-consumption and longer life of the CPU. Desp...
