Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

I don't see any cockblocking that Apple users aren't allowed to enjoy their devices.

lol ARM is perfect and x86 is crap.
For me the deal breaker is the lack of USB-A ports.
That's why ThinkPad!
Despite the stupid Windows tax.

Never owned any Apple device, so I can't comment their OS.

Re: programmers wanted for new chess repertoire making tools

If the gig is paid then sure I can write code.
Otherwise no thanks.

Re: Convert 64bits signed to unsigned

The 64th bit isn't a sign bit. It presents: -9223372036854775808 The largest number is 9223372036854775807 It is a sign bit. A signed int is stored as two's complement. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two%27s_complement I don't know about that gdscript. In Rust. Smt like this when types are fucked. 2...

Re: Mayhem NNUE - New NN engine

Mayhem 3.7 unleashed ! https://github.com/SamuraiDangyo/mayhem/releases/tag/v3.7 Faster and slightly better than v3.6 slow binaries are pretty slow, but works well. I'm getting (slow) 4.6 MNPS vs (fast build) 7 MNPS. Ryzen builds are super fast tho. Thanks to mar for measuring classical. ~2300 Elo i...

Re: Polyglot - merge-book oddity

You can't just merge PolyGlot books because then O(Log2(N)) binary search becomes smt retarded like O(N). They need to be sorted for binary search algorithm to work. Doesn't really matter with enough TC and CPU. But still.

Re: Mayhem NNUE - New NN engine

This is actually incredible strong version. My guesstimates. Classical mode: ~2500 Elo NNUE mode: ~3000 Elo My estimates (200 games, TC roughly CCRL Blitz): Classical mode: ~2250 Elo NNUE mode: ~2950 Elo (pretty close to your estimate, actually!) A fair match (same book for both engines) between Fr...
