Re: We are past the stage where the OS has become the virus

My chess analysis was running slow. So I looked at what processes in memory were doing. There was this thing: Compattelrunner.Exe It was using 17% of my compute power, and my chess task which should be at 95% was struggling. Apparently, it is MS Windows spy process that you cannot turn off. So I fo...

Re: Future progress of chess software in chess

1)Chess machines are equal to human+machines in playing correspondence chess 2)Chess machine are equal to union of humans+chess machines in developing better chess engines. 3)Chess machines are equal to union of humans+chess machines in teaching humans to play chess better in OTB chess. I think tha...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

Believing that there is some magical advantage of ARM architecture compared to x86 is pure BS. Architecturally I believe AMD's design is much more advanced. If they were on the same process node they'd be far superior in terms of processing power/W that today is probably equal. why bs? 2x more regs...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

Many claims about the superiority of the M1's as a CPU are exaggerated. I argued earlier how the power efficiency comparisons with desktop x86 CPUs are highly misleading. I don't like apple either (from a dev's perspective), in general I don't like how the company behaves. but I'm really impressed ...

Re: Lc0 in CCC matches

I have boxes of GPU cards and machines I could put them into. I have had lots of friends tell me that I should mine crypto-currency. Indeed, I could probably make thousands of dollars per month doing so. Nope. To offset the cost of electricity you burn you need a card with at least 6GB of DDR5 memo...

Re: Lc0 in CCC matches

GPUs are also getting more powerful. Every 6 months or so, there will be a new crop, much more powerful than the previous. I think the real problem with the LC0 approach right now is the miners who are hoarding the GPU cards. It ramps up the price to sky-high and makes it hard for people to get the...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

Mods, is there anyway we could split this thread into an actual M1 for Chess and another for Apple vs The World for the flame threads, so we can have a clean post for just chess ports and info? @H.G.Mueller: please, do those the favor who want to discuss chess apps on M1...I'm really fed up with th...
