Re: AMD Ryzen 3000 Series CPUs

What if it can run both on CPU and on GPU! I feel LC0 really has a lot of low bearing fruits by simply adjusting how it uses available hardware. Imagine a 128 core setup plus 3 x Titan RTX cards all being utilized to generate the best possible move!

Re: Two GPUs

I am also thinking of setting up 2 GPU's for LC0. So is this code to be added to the .dll files? How do you get Leela to use both GPU's on CB GUI? Just install the UCI engine and add an edited .txt file? How about if you do setup in SLI, will LC0 consider 2 x GPU's as one GPU if SLI or Crossfire is ...

Re: " End of an Era" is coming?

Not sure who is responsible for LC0, but holy crap ... what an incredible achievement! I would have never thought it would be possible to even be in the top 50 engines a few months back! Also what a monster SF has become! It seems like only recently where SF was slowly climbing the engine ladder and...

Re: LCZero Chess Engine Performance ........

Thank you so much for this! This really gives a better idea of what kind of hardware to get the most cost effective performance. One question I have is how scaling affects all this. For example how does 2 x RTX 2060 Ti compare to a RTX Titan or RTX 2080Ti. This might also be helpful in choosing the...

Re: " End of an Era" is coming?

I remember coming on talkchess a few months ago and this LC0 was just getting started. It looked promising but I expected at least 3 or 4 years before something that could reasonably compete with the top 3. I am totally amazed that already LC0 can go toe to toe with a very mature and most powerful e...

Re: Building a new super fast computer

I actually think that adding threads to an AB engine like SF reaches a point of diminishing returns very quickly. Most likely after 32 cores there is not much improvement. On the other hand, the GPU or NN engines are just in their infancy, and they are already incredibly strong. I expect some very m...

Re: Dramatic drop in performance with LC0 after updating Cuda drivers

Actually I did download what was the latest Cuda drivers from Nvidia … I think it was version 10. But somehow installing those drivers installed like 8 different subsets of drivers, including Physix (or something like that) and a bunch of other stuff that I have no clue what they were. Most likely t...

Re: LCZero blunder

This is a perfect example of how LC0 can fall to tactical shots that are obvious for AB engines. This is what makes LC0 so interesting, it really plays like a human and just like a human, it seems to have a much better understanding of positional chess, but can still fall for what is a simple tactic...

Dramatic drop in performance with LC0 after updating Cuda drivers

I was on the Nvidia website and I saw that they had Cuda drivers version 10 ... so I figured I would upgrade my Cuda drivers since I had about 1700 cuda cores. Unfortunately after upgrading, my Knps went from about 14 to 1. I then tried to uninstall the drivers and was surprised to see there was aro...
