Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

"Congrats to Stockfish for the incredible achievement. My middle finger to everyone else using it." I think I tried hard to explain in many places why NNUE is not Minic official evaluation, how it is a copy/paste of code and technology, and how it is just an experiment for me do dig into the NN wor...

But if we only learn out of it that we had to integrate NN into Stockfish to beat LC0 it is IMO a wrong essence.
Why do you use the word "we" if you are obviously not a chess engine developer.

Re: Which of the many chess engines in this forum use b strategy ?

I am not a chess programmer. I mainly worked with others testing engines. And there it was my job to find bugs or criticize things. Without critical comments no progress. I don't see my comments as personal insults. I am interested in computer chess as a whole thing. I do speak in general context, ...

Re: New AMD Zen 3 and Ryzen processors

Which is more beneficial for chess? BMI2 or AVX512? AVX for NNUE, BMI2 for classical AVX2 to be precise (AVX is just floating point). AVX512 so far seems to be a slowdown compared with AVX2 when used with many threads because it causes the CPU to clock down too much. This may or may not improve on ...

There are people who are always open for new ways and interesting things.

We dont need another 1000 stockfish clones.
But you have absolutely no business criticising people who are actually creating something whereas you are just... not creating something.

What I miss are alternative ideas how to program chess.
And you do you think your continual whining about that here is going to give someone a bright new idea?

I guess there is no information yet on whether pext/pdep were fixed.

Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX

But having a chip such as the Threadripper PRO 3995WX in the system is not cheap. Primarily, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO series processors will not go on public sale. At first, the only company, Lenovo, will be engaged in the distribution of ready-made systems based on them. Ah you're right, it was ...

Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX

Wasn't Threadripper PRO only going to be sold inside ($18,000+) HP workstations?

Later this week Zen 3 is supposed to be announced. I don't know when the Zen-3 based Threadripper 4000-series will follow, but I do know I will wait and see.
