Re: Lc0: Kiudee setting is very strong

Do we have now new LC0 default settings? The tuned settings were done using a mix of short time controls using the T58 (58613) network. These settings should be approximately optimal for all time controls with <20k nodes / move. Even though the CPuct scaling curve is not uniquely determined on slow...

Re: CCRL adapted TC to current hardware

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

Just an fyi, you can download a lot of the Mephisto engines as uci if you wanted to run them on the same hardware to compare. http://rebel13.nl/index.html Or you could also download my CB-Emu program, which emulates more than 200 chess computers (not only Mephisto, but also Fidelity, Novag, Saitek ...

Re: Fritz 17

What is the supported max cpu number (according to the uci options) for Fritz 17? Asking for info, because I added now a Ginkgo entry to the XB/UCI chronology. (note that some programs detect the max mumber themselves and then write the number of your cores) Yes, this appears to be the case, tried ...

Re: Deus X Neural Network Progress

Thanks for the update and good luck with the project. It will be good to see it reenter TCEC when you feel sufficient progress has been made.

Cheers,
