How Much Elo is the 5x speed?
A consensus is 50 elo per doubling, but it really depends on time control. At very fast TC can be worth twice as much.
So log2(5)*50 = ~116, twice as much at bullet.

Re: MS acquires github??

Microsoft is not known as a great proponent of free software. Of course not https://github.com/Microsoft VS code, type script, chakra core (their JS engine), .NET including their roslyn compiler and much more. VS supports Android, Linux and Mac targets including iOS, the community edition is free f...

Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

Reverting to an earlier version just because something went wrong is not smart. You're actually right - letting random people commit random stuff and changing random constants without testing is not smat but rather incompetent. Problems have been pointed out by Ronald, Alvaro and other people who a...

You are delusional beyond belief.
ID303 is like 50+ Elo weaker than ID232. Do proper testing, stop selling BS.
I measured -60 actually compared to 24x, so how on earth can their "elo graph" show +130 when it's actually regressing.
But people love fake graphs obviously...

I plan to play 200 games to get a rough idea of how strong the current engine + net is, I'll post the results here.
I have to agree with Albert - after 100 games perf is -60 elo compared to ID 24x so fanboys can cry now, they should revert to 0.7 ASAP!

Re: dear, dear a tiny down tick

I'm a bit skeptical about the "progress", if you only measure deltas from the previous version, error will accumulate, so nobody knows how strong she really is. They don't seem to do regression tests either. Kai's recent tests show no progress since 290 or so while the "elo graph" shows +130 or so.....

Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

Yes, the same for ID302 compared to ID292, no improvement (well, within error margins, so there is maybe at most 20 Elo points improvement). They see 130 Elo points improvement in self-games. Either something is wrong with my testing, or again something is fishy in their framework. Well I'm playing...

It takes a few thousand games to prove this, not one million.
Perhaps you meant tens of thousands because just error bars for 10k games are ~5 elo... So you can't reliably measure 5 elo improvement in 10k games.

Re: New phpBB Talkchess Forum presentation

Ok, seriously, no display name in phpBB? but I can edit my location and avatar, that's really awesome :roll: and I can't change my login either. I wonder how this was done in the previous forum, some extension maybe? I hope this will be sorted out. Plus some people mentioned search doesn't work on o...
