Re: Hard-Talkchess-2019 set

After this big clean up, here is the Hard-Talkchess-2020 beta 1 test suite. Thousands of hours of computer analyze, tens of people to check positions. Result : 210 positions, probably less than 5 mistakes, probably less than 10 easy positions. 10 hours on a 32 cores computer would be not enough to ...

Re: Threadripper Custom Build - feedback wanted

It sounds like a lot of fun. What are you going to do with it? With an Alpha Beta engine there are questions about its ability to use 32 cores. Do NNs use 32 cores? What about getting a 16 core using Hyper threading and save some money. Good point - I also use the cores for single thread testing pu...

Re: Threadripper Custom Build - feedback wanted

Just FYI, I have confirm with people that are usually in the know , that they believe a 64 Core Threadripper will be announced on October 7, 2019. Apparently , the 7th is big deal with these new chips for obvious reasons.

Re: Crafty 25.3 MSVS 2019
