When to check NNUE box

Speed difference

"speed differences between SF and SF-NNUE". That is a factor I have often seen mentioned in a comparisons between SF and SF-NNUE.

SF-NNUE going forward...

Zen:

Re: SF-NNUE going forward...

"The analysis of the first net I downloaded is getting obsolete now, I wonder how long current one will last."

Ovyron,
Does that mean that you usually use whatever is the latest (non-experimental) net from Sergio?

The latest Sergio...
