Re: buying a new computer

I am waiting to buy a new desktop myself. AMD is going to release its next generation ryzen 9 cpus with 12-core (24 threads) tomorrow. I think it will be very good hardware for stockfish at the half price of intel's cpus (500$ compared to 1100$). There 16-core version will not come out until septme...

Re: Why there is no interest in Computer with odds Vs Humans match?

Because, when does small material count? Mainly at the end of t...

Re: It looks like the big 3 in TCEC are LC0, SF and Allie now!

Now Top 3 engines tied in TCEC! The best engines are all very active in improving. And all the best engines are free. Komodo is the only commercial engine at the top that is still active. And why must we watch Houdini 6 from 2017 lose again. Tcec needs a rule to not play engines season after season...

Talent is much more a given, these days.

In this day and age, the young people seem to have completely overtaken the talent industry. Talent is so much wisespread today, that it seems to be a much cheaper commodity than slightly earlier times. Did young children, especially girls, used to have such great violin playing abilities 50 years a...

Re: Why are super top professional Go players so stupid?

I learned in one-two hours of analysis more than they have learnt in decades of study and practice. I guess they are natively not that gifted. Lack of vitamins. I would honestly hope that chess players are the most intelligent humans (apart of course from top talmudic scholars). Ok, to put it anoth...
