Where is this big (384x30) network?
On the site of jhorthos we can see the 320x24 nets and no any bigger.
Note
Alone the bigger size is not a guarantee for better play.

Thanks!
Maybe is the last the most better?

Re: buying a new computer

Watch for Black Friday prices on the second gen chips too. Last November I picked up a brand new 16-core first gen TR (1950x) for $405 from Newegg. how much slower than a second gen TR? Not twice as slow. When I bought it, the new 2950x was retailing for $700, boasting speed improvements of 0.2GHz....

Re: There Might Exist Simple Rules For Accurate Position Evaluation

The main issue is the chess is not a solved game. It seems unlikely that chess will be solved by exhaustive game tree search from the starting position as other games have, so it will have to be solved by a combination of mathematics and computing, like the four colour theorem was. If we would know...

Re: AlphaZero vs. the human brain

Maybe these numbers show us the way to go, less nps but bigger, really big, neural networks? Srdja Quite Correct. My practical Experience with lc0 on InfinityChess and other Sites confirms your theory. Using the 128x10 Networks I got beaten practically every time by the AB Engine Users, even though...

Re: There Might Exist Simple Rules For Accurate Position Evaluation

The main issue is the chess is not a solved game. If we would know the exact solution of chess we could make a mathematical model for chess and we could plan an ideal chess engine basing on this model Without knowing the solution we can only use the experience yielded from programming tricks, parame...

Re: There Might Exist Simple Rules For TT replacement

The GPU (more exactly the NN) evaluation contain the result of the many millions games played during self learning. Enhancing the number of played games and the measure of NN we can gain engines playing better and better games. It is pity but bigger NN needs more powerful hardware. What does "GPU" ...

Re: There Might Exist Simple Rules For TT replacement

... Aside to the original point: I do not think that the data contained in the GPU evaluation is simple. Quite the opposite. I suspect it is so complex that we cannot understand it even if we were to decipher it somehow. I agree. The GPU (more exactly the NN) evaluation contain the result of the ma...
