Re: GPU rumors 2021

Missed one about Apple silicon for the serious Pro models in 2021/2022...

- up to 128 core GPU (8 core on M1 with > 2 TFLOPS peak)
- up to 32 high-performance-core CPU

Their paper on MCGS - "Monte-Carlo Graph Search for AlphaZero" is only 702.4 kB :)

Re: GPU rumors 2021

Ah, I missed one rumor:

- Nvidia RTX 30xx Super series refresh on TSMC 7nm in 2021?

Dunno how this chip shortage thingy will play out in all of this.

Chess is an isle of sanity in an absurd world...

Pondering about Camus and his Absurdism, about Baudrillard and his Hyper-
reality, it seems to me that chess is an isle of sanity in an absurd world,
chess per se makes sense, it might be an own world/dimension for itself, but I
guess that is the beauty in it.

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

As far as I got it the M1 has 4 vector 128b NEON pipelines per Firestorm core: https://www.anandtech.com/show/16226/apple-silicon-m1-a14-deep-dive/2 can someone clarify how these are used for NNUE? Does SF utilize only one 128b pipeline, or can they be coupled to 512b? -- Srdja According to SF and ...

Re: Zeta with NNUE on GPU?

Followup: - I mixed up NNUE first layer INT16 and further INT8 weights, so the possible 4x inference speedup holds only if we assume 8-bit vector packed math on gpu. - I was not able to implement an efficient 8-bit 0x88 vector-based board representation on pen n paper, hence no 8-bit speedup for mov...

In the beginning it was less.
Maybe 1600-1750 Elo when the software was 16 kb size and hardware maximal 3.6 mhz.
Hehe, my favor - Video Chess from 1978 for the Atari VCS gaming system:

- 8-bit 6507@1.19 MHz
- 128 Bytes RAM
- 4 KB ROM cartridge
