Re: Stockfinn 0.2 Released

Some of the recent patches gain 30-60 elo so matters more than a little speed. I will do better compiles again when I have time, probably next weekend, but might not be any faster.

Stockfinn 0.2 Released

https://www.patreon.com/posts/stockfinn-0-2-38923625 The net is one of the best, but the binary being made more than a few days ago is already out of date now with those massive bugfixes for TM and fixed nodes. I've seen other recent compiles floating around. Some of them have said they support 30mb...

Re: StockFiNN Release and Scaling

People are understandably jaded from many bad SF clones that pretended to be stronger and very different from SF even with alphazero technology, but were in fact almost identical to SF... Makes it hard to convince people when in fact the entire evaluation function has no shared essence at all.

Re: StockFiNN Release and Scaling

The main point is that it produces evals and moves more unique as a 2nd opinion to Stockfish than any stockfish clone or even Komodo, and yet manages to be stronger be much stronger than Komodo. Whether it is 30 elo above SF or below is largely irrelevant here. But there are some circumstances in wh...

Re: SPCC: Testruns of StockFiNN 0.2 and Lc0 J90-40 finished

It looks like SPCC uses a skylake CPU so that build should be good. Sadly I do not have an intel machine to test and compile with, but it should be just a little bit faster than the AVX2 builds I would think. It looks like SPCC also uses Hertz book which I did some tests with and found it was simila...

Re: SPCC: Testruns of StockFiNN 0.2 and Lc0 J90-40 finished

The bench test didn't work when I tried it in SFNN2, Simply type isready and it will load net. Then bench command will work. So you cannot just run sf.exe bench outside, but rather load the exe, then the net, then run bench. Single threaded bench I got 82% of SF-dev speed, but 16 thread it is down ...

Re: StockFiNN Release and Scaling

Normal users have struggled using lc0 for a very long time. Most chess players are not engine enthusiasts, and even struggle with commercial products like chessbase software, which is a reason why they are so big, and why they found it worth doing fat fritz. I don't like it all, but anyone with an a...

Re: StockFiNN Release and Scaling

I think in the future clones will be determined based on architecture and dataset used, not exact learning techniques or search, which only modify the results a bit, and less over time as it all improves. So to generate an engine with a new perspective a new dateset and architecture will generate th...
