Re: Komodo 9.3 vs Stockfish

Seems that on the hardware that 99% of us can afford and run, Stockfish is stronger in game-play. But on TCEC like hardware, with long time control, the tables are turned. For analysis purposes that makes Komodo the weapon of choice, but if you are serious about things you'll use at least one other...

Re: Ugly UCI

I guess it depends upon what world you live in. Around 2002 Shedder and Fritz were the two most important engines in existence and both interfaces had already UCI built in. For their own engines Chessbase used (and probably they still do) a proprietary interface that is nothing more than a DLL. It ...

Re: Ugly UCI

Italian and Latin are considered different languages They are! Modern italian is more similar to spanish than to latin, and of course both italian and spanish derive directly from latin (as many other european languages). It is interesting to me that also english language, although not a strict der...

Re: Fritz now is Rybka, so what?

The discussion about how much Fritz is still fritz using now a Vas engine sounds to me like a little bit absurd. I insist, TO ME. What make Fritz such a good product -for me, again- is not who authored the engine, in any case always far stronger than me, but the full GUI. Nobody has still bettered ...

Re: Super pawn !!

We are currently... ...spamming TalkChess and supplying the forum's moderators with an unaccustomed amount of busy work when they have far more important things to do (for my part, the English Premier League is on...). Please desist or the next action taken will be far less polite. Thank you. Later.

Re: Ugly UCI

I agree 100%. I'm actually surprised so many are voicing concerns about UCI in this thread. I know Bob and H.G. are not fans, but I thought the debate was basically over. I thought winboard, as a protocol, was dead. Are there any new engines implementing winboard? I never understand why people seem...
