Re: Fat Fritz destroyed Stockfish!

Link to review, citing this very thread at Talkchess! https://new.uschess.org/news/fat-fritz-fritz-17-review-i/ ChessBase struggled along with Fritz 14 and 15, both rebranded and marginally improved versions of Rybka 4.1, and Fritz 16, a “skin” of the formerly private engine Pandix. There is a litt...

Re: New engine releases 2019

Minic 1.09 has been released. https://github.com/tryingsomestuff/Minic/releases/tag/1.09 I can't seem to get it to work. It won't register at all on Fritz 17 using "minic_1.09_mingw_x64_x86-64.exe" on Windows 10. I am not sure what mingw is so maybe that's the reason. It registered in Arena but wou...

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)

Re: Anaconda (pre-Ginkgo)

Also, it could be worth noting that Ginkgo had been listed on CCRl 40/40 as a private engine, but then it was pulled from the list just around the same time as the Fritz 17 discussion first sprang up. :) I don't know why that was, I wouldn't read anything into it. Graham asked for it to be removed ...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

It's probably better if you could set the perfect setup for Ethereal 11.75 under Linux/cutechess and then if it's running perfect, my "obviously bad setup" is causing the problem. Why should I? I'm not interested in testing Ethereal like you seem not interested in understanding what processor cores...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

A year ago, I was using Arena 3.5 as my primary chess engines tournament program using a maximum of 7 instances to run a tournament. I got the inspiration to use 32 concurrencies with cutechess when Ethereal became very strong and Andrew revealed that he was using 32 bit concurrencies in cutechess ...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

And here is the link of Ethereal 11.75 gauntlet done a few hours just after the Ethereal 11.73 was finished: http://chessowl.blogspot.com/2019/11/ethereal-1175-vs-top-chess-engines.html A more invasive way of offering a download, as done on 'chessowl', is nearly impossible. I checked the pgn and th...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

Truly concurrency= 32 on a 4 core machine?? That must go wrong. Best wishes, G.S. (CEGT team) Well, I was simply speechless, when this was revealed ;-) It also cries for other problems to rely on default hash and default thread number of all programs instead of setting it. I wonder though, why it s...
