Re: BIOS question

I have a question that I will work into a chess hardware question. My computer downloaded a BIOS update on its own. I let it when it asked. I have never updated my BIOS before. I am wondering what it does for the computer and will it help chess engines in anyway. I read that it helps your hardware ...

Re: TCEC Question

Much to my surprise LCO is really getting beat up. AB engines are not dead. Not even close.

Re: TCEC Question

Why is SF doing so well against LCO in the latest TCEC? Maybe simply because Lc0 net isn't the best around. It seems to be 75 elo lower than other big nets. Have a look here: http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=74329#p849247 It is on the 30th rank. I wonder how the TCEC LCO net made it ...

Re: TCEC Question

In less than 1000 games practically any outcome is possible amongst approximate equals. I guess that they are very close to equal, but SF had some fortunate outcomes.

Re: TCEC Question

And if SF is stronger, it is not by an enormous margain, as evidenced by the draw count. Any idea if TCEC-hardware wise, the current Lc0-Stockfish contest is "fair" ? Looking for some LeelaRatio clues, I noticed that going out of book, the Stockfish Knodes/sec were more than 2000 times those of Lc0...
