Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

So what is the future? Making Stockfish 11 that is 40 elo stronger? Followed by Stockfish 12 that is again 30 elo better. Or waiting until the NN beat Stockfish with another graphic card ? The future is about elo. And it is about search. It is about hardware. In the past as well as today and in the...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

I don't think you understand the central facts in the theory of chess programming: If you measure the strength of Elos starting from 1000 nodes /move and then always doubles the nodes/move, then the playing strength of Stockfish after 20 doubles increases to about 3500 ELO while the playing strength...

Re: I can't believe that so many people don't get it!

If you're right, it would mean that AlphaZero would lose every match so badly if the starting position is one that AlphaZero has never played before in practice. I think that's very unlikely that you are right. It sounds more like a conspiracy theory. Just as well Google could have created the 100 c...

Re: Let us mourn the death of AsmFish

Asmfish is an excellent piece of work and it speeds up the stockfish a lot. It is not necessary to determine the Elo difference at all, but the only thing that matters is the speed advantage. If I have the choice to wait 1 hour for a certain result or only 40 minutes - then I always prefer 40 minute...

Re: Houdini 6 has been released

The result of asmBrainFish could be more interesting with a very recent asmfish version from 170909 or newer ......, still not available.

Re: Houdini 6 has been released

In the last Test "NEW" played against Houdini 5, and now H6 does not play against Houdini 5 .... "NEW" performend above expectations against H5 and the overall pre-score was less than now, so overall i guess that this Houdini 6 is faster or stronger than that "NEW" Engine from 10 days ago. So, overa...

No such luck. Mr Houdart believes in the Annual Update Model :) In this case, Houdard sho...

Re: Stockfish no progress in 2month and half , why ?

Why don't you test something like this : Remove all green patch and test a version with all non fonctionnal patch only, then do the opposite , remove all non fonctionnal patch and test all green patch. At least you will now better and quickly if the probleme is from there or not. Many green patches...
