Is it now totally clear cut that SF NNUE is stronger than Lc0?

If Lc0 had 2x2080 Ti (say) what hardware would SF NNUE need to equal it?
Probably 16 cores.

Re: Progress of Stockfish in 6 days

Does anyone have the daily/monthly elo Progress of Rybka 3 to 2, and 4 to 3, so we can compare? No, I don't have, but IIRC Rybka 1.0beta to Rybka 2.2 and Rybka 2.3.2 to Rybka 3 were the fastest periods, some 100 Elo points in a year or so each. I don't know about some special faster progress weeks.

Progress of Stockfish in 6 days

It's hilarious, every day SF engine becomes sensibly stronger (and the nets too), so in 6 days I get a 35 Elo points progress of Stockfish at 6s + 0.1s. Really, even if the pace will slow down, I expect another 50 Elo points in one-two months. The binary is also 8-9% faster now compared to 6 days ag...

Re: History of Memory Wall in Computer Chess?

Were you aware back then that your program rates high among available at that time on the market programs and dedicated units? That you were close to the top of micro-computer chess programming? People were much less informed and connected back then, at least usually, maybe you were unaware of the ...

Re: History of Memory Wall in Computer Chess?

I am not that long into programming and computer chess, so may I ask what kind of impact the memory wall back then in the 90s(?) had on programming in chess? As far as I got it, nowadays engines fit completely into CPU cache, including things like lookup tables, and main memory is now used for Hash...

Re: this will be the merge of a lifetime : SF 80 Elo+

Wish they'd just delete the classical evaluation completely, and stop this awkward hybridization. Yes, the NNUE evaluation is (currently) half as fast as the classical one. And given that it still was +90 Elo above classical-fish. Folks are just emotionally attached to the classical evaluation, bec...
