Re: Promising engines 3000+ ELO not Stockfish derivatives

Effectively after 30 minutes it reached 33/33 ply ...My hardware is too weak, but I'd really like to know CT800 performance with top CPUs. From Cortex-M4 to M1 speed (100x) with 1000x speed could be a quantum leap, a Deep CT800 :D Haha! :) The performance on the Cortex-M4 is around 30kNPS (without ...

Since the search depth limit is 22 plies full search plus 10 plies quiescence,
I'm trying to exploit all the CT800 potential.
That's only for the Cortex-M4 microcontroller version which is the main scope of my project - the PC UCI version has 42 plies plus 10 plies quiescence. :)

Re: Why C++ instead of C#?

I also didn't manage to compile it out of the box with Visual Studio (not even after installing Clang) because clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC,&end); seems to not be available on Windows. Yes, that's a POSIX function. With MingW, you could add the compiler / linker options -mthreads -pthread -lpthrea...

On the other hand if someone is sharing the code of a didactic engine I assume he expects others to interact with it in some form?
Not necessarily. Crafty's or TSCP's source code for example have a "look at it, but don't touch it" kind of licence.

To avoid any further confusion making the source code public seems to be the best course of action to me.
Thanks, that's always cool! :)

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

Open source engines still not available on Mac Silicon M1: Wasp 4.5.0 http://www.amateurschach.de/main/_wasp-beta-test.htm Unfortunately, Wasp is not open source. What is open source is the CT800, and I expect that to easily compile natively on M1 if you have Clang installed, using the provided Mac...

Re: On the ownership of TakChess

and have his flagrant commercial exhortation on every page of it? Given that the hosting and domain has always been for free, that little advertising isn't outrageous. It's small, static, no flickering, and even on-topic for a chess forum - and that's what I say as someone whose first browser exten...

Re: On the ownership of TakChess

That would sound reasonable if Ed wasn't firmly in Quentin's camp... You're alluding to Ed's attempt of bribing Quentin as owner to prevent democratic elections regarding the CTF shutdown. However, since that attempt failed, I don't expect Ed to be in Quentin's camp. Quentin wasn't a useful tool fo...

What would a 5 nm CPU mean for chess engines?
That next year's CPU would be faster and/or consume less energy than last year's CPU. Business as usual with computers.
