Re: WCCC June 27th in Leiden

2400 cores seems really a lot to me there :) Assuming this is first time Jonny uses that many - any speedup numbers from Jonny? What speed-up? It gets 1 billion NPS. Don't know effective speed-up. Mark says it ponders many moves simultaneously, but ponder alone cannot mean more than twice the think...

Re: WCCC June 27th in Leiden

Just got back from the pub so sorry for the late blitz final results :) 1. Jonny 2. Shredder 3. Komodo 4. Hiarcs Does HIARCS have a time management bug? It seems to get short of time in most games (if the times are reported right) and has issues in the final phase. Not sure we're seeing HIARCS in i...

Jonny had a similar number of cores in the last WCC IIRC
Jonny wasn't very talkative towards me when i asked him how he was doing the parallel search at the supercomputer, some years ago.

Re: WCCC June 27th in Leiden

Shredder is greatly improved since last year, and is running on a 32 core machine. It is showing a lot of depth and it is clear Stefan has made a lot of progress. Jonny also is much stronger. For instance, it is currently in second place on the TCEC round 2. Johannes Zwanzger, Jonny's programmer, s...

Don't take me wrong - but the level i see in the games i wouldn't call that "big progress" past few years for computerchess.

Re: WCCC June 27th in Leiden

En passant bug in Komodo? 1.d4 d5 2.e4 fxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Nc6 5.d5 Ne5 6.Qd4 Nf7 7.h4 e5?! To me looks like dubious move. You just take on e6 en passant and whites (presumably bad position according to theory from 1990s) looks suddenly ok for white. After 7..c6 - black is obviously much better. I...
