Re: Usefulness of "Leela ratio"

I support testing that will bring cost (TCO) to the spotlight, abandoning the Leela ratio. This won't give you the reliability of a formula (LR), because prices fluctuate over time and depend on where you live, but at any given time and place, some basics can be stablished. Some components will be n...

Re: What is the purpose of chess engines?

When I tell people where the heating home comes from, they usually laugh, but I never knew what's laughable about killing two birds with one stone. Because it's like using your Rocket Launcher to kill a fly. Sure, you already have the rocket launcher, and you want to kill the fly, but who's going t...

So it is weaker than Stockfish and lczero !
I already knew that before. But Chessbase's marketing was good. :lol:
Chessbase propaganda is only as good as its target audience.

Re: NN Engine GPU Usage

Performance -> GPU0(where 2080 Ti is) -> and now choose a ↓ down arrow in any of the setting, e.g Video Decode and choose Compute_0. That shows the Leela GPU usage and not the 3D that you probably see and confuse you. :D Are you sure he shouldn't be choosing "Cuda" from the dropdown menu?

Re: Fat Fritz destroyed Stockfish!

I predict that soon enough someone's bulb will light on and they will provide a supervised learning NN that plays stronger than anything else available, though as things tend to go, it'll only be like 20 elo over second best and nobody will be impressed by that. Neither should them. Right now FF is...

Re: Fat Fritz destroyed Stockfish!

BTW, I haven't used my DB in a game since 2014 and it hasn't even been updated since 2017. So the question is why is it called a "good database" if there's no use for it? Has Nelson stopped updating his database as well, or what does he use it for? I check my database every time I start a new game,...

Re: Fat Fritz destroyed Stockfish!

I know for a fact that people heavily underestimates what you need to create a good DB, the only other person I've come across who actually does what needs to be done, is Nelson Hernandez. Really now? My Database is good enough to match yours and always come up with at least an equal position (once...

Re: Fat Fritz destroyed Stockfish!

Anyway, it is fairly clear that Fat Fritz is in the same pool of main Lc0 zero runs, and if one wants to put it harshly, is just a crippled 42850 or T40B4_200. The supervised learning brought little even style wise. This could mean that the zero approach is best for the project, or that the selecti...
