I read from TCEC chat, that ML confirmed Komodo 1970 has NUMA bug causing slow speed. True or not? But TCEC rules say:

"In the case of a serious, play-limiting bug (like crashing or interface communication problems, not including losses on time) not discovered during the pre-Season testing, the engine can be updated once per Stage to fix this/these bug/bugs only."

So another 80 games with handicapped engine now :( .

I saw that too and was wondering the same. I just asked and somebody told me Mark L said no problem, but depends if we were talking about the same message time-frame because he has (also) said that pre numa message.

Or is it only display bug? Sometimes 1970 Komodo version displays suddenly up to 100% faster nps!

I am surprised by this news. The Komodo team has always been good with many cores. I hope they let Komodo make the adjustment. I am assuming ML knows how to fix it.

No adjustments. Komodo must suffer. The version Komodo is playing with should have been tested before the super final, and found out if it was buggy or not... Komodo should not have any kind of special treatment :) :)

Well.. rules allow one update during stage to fix play limiting bugs.

It looks like Komodo is now running ~20% slower than in prior rounds.

How many ELO is that supposed to be worth?
I can't imagine K's NUMA bug is entirely responsible for the thrashing it's receiving.

About Houdini overall, there is something I like about its piece sacrifices and willingness to take calculated chances.

Indeed. Bad luck probably plays a bigger role.
