Re: experiencing Lag in Arena, AMD 3900X build

Caching of 6-men Syzygy tablebases can also cause memory issues when running long time controls and a few cores as I found out. I have 16GB of RAM which I thought was plenty but definitely isn't these days. I stick to 5-men now.

Re: SlowChess Blitz Classic 2.0

I checked the FRC list and I'm happy to see the first external testing results are consistent with what I was hoping. (Was +91 elo when I checked, and I think my results from doing self-play tests at super fast time controls will overestimate differences.) Yes, well remember we use Bayeselo and it ...

- On the plus side, this should be the largest strength increase between versions so far. Scored about +100 elo in 60 + .5 self-play. (Might be less against other engines or at different time controls.)
I'm getting very close to this on the chess960 games played so far.

About this release : - This is primarily a strength increase release, mostly from experimenting with learning & eval features. (Also a few minor bug fixes.) - On the plus side, this should be th...

Thanks, there are a few more strategies for overclocking to explore! 8-) It takes time and I'm just starting on my third day.
You could just enjoy it for a month at stock before tinkering, and you may then find you don't need to or want to.

Thanks Guys,

The Blitz list shows ELO 1415, as for others still a lot lower than we think ....

Thanks very much ...

Al.
That is the older 9.01 rather than 11.0.1 that is on the chess960 list.

Re: New engine: Stash

Hi, I can’t find any official grading for this Engine. Originally I believe it was estimated around 1450 ELO, but on PicoChess we are seeing v11 holding it’s own against Engines in the 2000-2200 ELO range. Thanks, Al. There are some games on the CCRL chess960 list. 1732 Elo on that list so far. I s...

Re: Suggestion to CCRL

From a quick look at the code, I believe that we could change to "x64" instead of "64-bit" without any difficulty at all. That is a bit cleaner. Might be something we could do in the interim, worth thinking about also.

Did something happen between Devel 3.0.0a and 3.0.0b ? There's a difference of 100 elo in CCRL between the 2, with 3.0.0a being stronger. How can that be the case? 3.0.0b is even weaker than Devel 2. Weird.
We're removing those 3.0.0b games pending further investigation.
