Re: Official: Lc0 is the strongest engine :)

GPUs have been improving much faster than CPUs. If this continues, it'll get better and better for the GPU engines... Ofc they were improving much faster when 9xx series was on 28nm, while Intel is already 4 generations on 14nm (10nm Cannon Lake is a total failure since Intel can't make a reliable ...

Re: CCCC and TCEC hardware is unfair?

Many people think that hardware conditions are not fair. So if Leela win, then it's basically unjust. (?) But SF will be wrongly judge by everyone. What do you think about this? How would it be fairer? Why do you say it's unfair? How can 50'000$ 6 months old hardware vs. 5000$ 2 years old hardware ...

Re: Leela : Lc0 crashing with RTX 2080/ is 2080 Ti worth it?

i understand that it is faster, but if you run them a couple minutes, the results seem to be same??? In that case, 2070 may just be enough with these settings. (2-3 minutes per move) 2x2070 will be cheaper in price than 2080Ti, will be equal in TDP and slightly stronger than 2080Ti in terms of nps....

Re: Official: Lc0 is the strongest engine :)

SF_dev uses Contempt=0, as with non-zero contempt it shows fake value of eval. Lc0 has no contempt setting. Lol, Lc0 behaves as it has constant 100cp contempt. When will ppl understand that it's not that much about endgames (Lc0 is certainly weak in them) but in fake eval. Lc0 always believes it's ...

Re: Lc0 v18 rc2 for 2080 Syzygy implementation

I checked for another set of 400 won 6-men positions against SF8_Syzygy, not a single miss. TBs are only up to 7 men, Leela often misevaluates heavily earlier endgames with many more pieces, I am bit skeptical that based on TB rescoring, Leela will become comparable to top engines in endgames, with...

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

I see, what exactly do you agree with? That the 12 openings, selected to favor A0, happens to be the 12 most popular openings played by humans? A remarkable coincidence no doubt. /John Did you even check the openings or you are just repeating like a parrot BS from that PR manifest? Simple example t...

Re: Who would be the greatest Chess960 Champion ever?

Pick any of the world champions and explain your reasoning. Laskers's strategic genius? Capablanca's simplicity? Alekhine's combinations? Fisher's great all around? Karpov's positional style? Kasparov positional and combination style? or Magnus Carlsen Highest rated player of all times? SFdev. Ther...
