Komodo 5 release now available!

Komodo 5 has just been released. At the moment only the SP version is
available but we have a prototype of the MP version that we are
working hard to get ready.

Please note that the 32 bit versions are not yet avaiable - but will
be available within the next couple of days. The web site is not very
clear on that point and our webmaster is on a long sabbitical.

Also please note that there will not be a Komodo 4.1 release. However
to fullfill our promise of Komodo 4 MP, you will be able to get both
Komodo 5 SP and MP for the same price you would have payed to get
Komodo 4 MP. Simply puchase Komodo 5 SP for the discounted price and
you will be able to obtain Komodo 5 MP for free when it's available.



Komodo 5 has many improvements and bug fixes over Komodo 4 and will
play a much stronger game.

- automatic SSE4.2 detection
- several evaluation improvements
- time control improvements
- search is better
- multipv implemention improved
- Hash table utilization better
- many others
Capital punishment would be more effective as a preventive measure if it were administered prior to the crime.

Your work is always welcome. I am eager to see its performance in IPON and other rating lists... how much Elo gain can we expect? Maybe 30 Elo more than Komodo 4 (around 3010-3015 in IPON) for making a random guess? Thanks in advance and please keep up the good work. Good luck with MP implementation! I also wish you good health. Congratulations to Komodo team.

Regards from Spain.

I really dread trying to make predictions, they always end up suprising us. Some Komodo's ended up a lot stronger than we expected and some ended up weaker than expected.

Here are some results from our distributed tester at 2m + 2s Fischer including some dev versions:

Code: Select all

Rank Name                       Elo      +      -    games   score   oppo.   draws 
   1 Komodo 5 64bit           3045.8   16.6   16.6    1317   57.2%  2996.2   43.7% 
   2 Komodo 4452.00 64 bit    3032.4    5.8    5.8   10793   55.2%  2996.7   44.4% 
   3 Komodo 4448.00 64 bit    3031.6   12.7   12.7    2251   56.5%  2986.6   43.4% 
   4 Houdini 1.5a x64         3028.6    7.7    7.7    6330   50.4%  3025.6   41.0% 
   5 Komodo 4445.00 64 bit    3025.3   10.4   10.4    3392   54.8%  2992.6   43.8% 
   6 Komodo 4 SSE4            3007.4   10.5   10.5    3381   52.1%  2992.7   40.2% 
   7 Critter 1.4 64-bit SSE4  3000.0    6.7    6.7    8130   46.3%  3025.6   45.2% 
   8 Stockfish 2.2.2 JA       2961.8    6.7    6.7    8068   40.6%  3026.8   44.1% 

But take this with a grain of salt. It was played on various hardware (adjusted to appear as 2+2 on a fast machine by our testing software) and also on a mix of machines. All Komodo versions play guauntlets against non-komodo versions - in other words no Komodo vs Komodo here. Also there is not much variety and the sample sizes are very low.

On the lists we have no idea how this will turn out.
Capital punishment would be more effective as a preventive measure if it were administered prior to the crime.

Great news ! I think it's a good move to skip 4.1. Looking forward to 32-bit version and testresults ! (and mp-version of course :P )

Best of luck with the engine
