Re: Frank's Red Hots

... because using CUDA 11 (instead of 10.2) and using cudnn 7.6.4 (nstead of 7.4.2) Leela could get about 30 % speed enhance in the case of SV-384x30 (big) nets. So Leela could gain ~ 10-20 Elo.
May be before the TCEC Super Final in 3 weeks.

Curiously SF 12 actually got a slightly higher average depth (.23 ply) despite only about 76% NPS.
I already saw this for a couple of weeks.
Probably because the moves at low depth are better with NNUE, so the tree is narrower and taller.

After 10k games, no doubt NNUE is stronger.
But it seems about equal on long times control (with a lot of cores).

When the analysis become longer, the advantage seems less than on short time control.
