You can use Komodo MCTS like a "normal" engine.
The games for the rating list run on one core.
Well, Komodo MCTS on 'one core', set to display 1 PV....seems like it would be the same as regular Komodo. Sorry, I am probably completely missing something here.

I've opened almost exclusively 1.g3 for some 20 yrs. It is about time the engines caught up. :wink:

Re: Naka Blitz Practice Vs Komodo helped him beat Carlsen !

LOL!
I seriously don't think that had anything at all to do with his beating Carlsen....but it makes for a good story. :roll:

Re: Leela Chess Zero Makes Mind-Blowing Piece Sacrifice!

Observation: Commentators are now fond of saying "that's an idea borrowed from Alpha Zero"...heard that in response to white playing a2-a4 recently on chess24. They are NOT saying the engine played that in this position before of course. Really though, it's more correct to say that an engine is 'bo...

Re: Komodo should get a revenge Vs David Smerdon

"The actual time taken per move (about 100 ms) was I believe due to a deliberate delay chess.com uses to give the impression of non-instant play." I was thinking about this recently. Anyone should want that delay - there is nothing more irritating than it being your move immediately after you have m...

Re: FGRL rating list, 10 min + 6 sec - 2. Komodo 14, 4. Komodo 14 MCTS

Curious: how does one go about testing Komodo in MCTS mode say in comparision to regular Komodo?

I've always thought the main point for MCTS would be for analysis...say with 3 or 4 lines showing on 3 or 4 cores.

If you use each on say a 4 core machine, how do you set MCTS?

Re: Core i9 9900K

Anyone have any experience or comments about this chip? Don't waste money, 3800X is almost 200$ cheaper (Ryzens got a huge discount since Intel unveiled 10000 series 2 days ago) and more powerful for chess (unless you have liquid nitrogen cooling ;)). For god sake, you can even buy 3900X for 100$ l...

"Well now we know, that the MCTS version is the best with odds"

Re: how many points will Komodo score vs. GM Lenderman?

Afraid I don't know. I'm watching real chess right now. Maggie dropped two in a row and, smarting, agreed to a quick draw with So.

Re: how many points will Komodo score vs. GM Lenderman?

"Odds" is little more than theater for those who might like weird spectacles. My opinion of course. "Time odds" - now that is the only thing of interest to me because both sides are at least playing the 'same game' with the 'same pieces'...only the machine will always think (?? okay, calculate) fas...
