Re: Stockfish 10 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Given the error margins and limited development time (compared to the v8-v9 cycle) hardly strange.

Certainly, as long as Lc0 can demonstrate such horror games, its future is bleak ! :roll:

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

It seems that a good chunk of the benefit of 7 man TB is just the rook and 2p vs rook and p endgame plus the small KPPPkpp, which can be put on a fairly small SSD along with 6 man with no big cost of download or SSD. Are you sure ??? A pawn will necessarily promote, so you will absolutely need the ...

Re: My longest game (LC0)

No graphics card for Lc0/DeusX ?
No graphics card, as this computer was originally built with only chess in mind.
