Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

It's seems that anything that is created using at least some part of Lc0, is automatically stronger than Fire 7.1 at the very least. For AB engine programmers, even ending the life of the engine at the same strength as Fire 7.1 is highly unlikely. Just allow the same latitude for SF derivatives and...

I've seen Nvidia benchmarks for Leela but not any AMD ones.
Are the latest and best amd cards good for Leela? Any benchmarks?
What he said, if you aren't finding benchmarks, it may be because no one would bother testing so big a difference.

Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

Past the half-tournament, the advantage has been clearly diminished (to +3). Don't get me wrong, Lc0 will win, I predicted as much at the same time I said SF would still win TCEC14, but the bar is set very high, it doesn't seem feasible for anyone to steer clear of it by a wide margin.

Re: Komodo 13 released

I believe that both Komodo and Komodo MCTS share the same code and it is not fair to have them as seperate engines. I believe Komodo MCTS is simply a version of Komodo and there is no justification to treat it differently. If Houdini tactical is considered to be a version of Houdini then by the sam...

Re: Poly 1.3 release

I guess you won't find many programmers willing to rewrite the Polyglot code for that purpose, although it's very little work. I heard from one of those programmers, that it was quite a bit of work to do a complete overhaul, which would include "writing a whole new UCI to Winboard adapter that will...

Re: Poly 1.3 release

Polyglot books made larger than 2Gb will crash due to the limitation of the 32 bit code. That's still 131.072.000 positions!
Reached that limitation last year, none of the different polyglot forks I've seen, seem to tackle that particular problem.

I like the "look" of the new GUI. Is it possible for you to add the eval from White's perspective? I like that function from TS Robbins, but I like your look better
That mix sounds desirable.

Off topic, any chance of seeing an update of the TCERL?

it takes an enormous amount of time to test everything
If you need help with that, you just have to ask. It would be a shame if you only released it once it's useless, after all the effort that must have gone into it already.

Re: Leela-Cerebellum available

Leela book? what is it..LC0 games? Whats it for? Thx AR :) :wink: Cerebellum_Light_Net32930 is calculated with lc0 and Net 32930. Cerebellum does not depend on a special engine :) Some preliminary tests indicated that the Leela and Stockfish book can complement each other, which means when they are...

Re: The Last Survivor of AB engine, Stockfish! What position will Stockfish stand?

I think my dream machine will be the Ryzen 3000 series Threadripper with 16 cores Reality will probably be cheaper, Ryzen 9 is bringing 16 cores for about $500 to market. That is only a rumor. Most market experts think a Ryzen 9 16 core would only be released. If AMD needed 16 cores on this platfor...
