Re: larger nets for SF?

There are a number of experiments conducted on the Rybka forum that show a direct relationship between net size and Elo increase. Also, when it comes to solving tactical problems bigger nets are the clear winner. I think we do not know what the best net size is. That is why I suggest trying lots of...

Re: DDR5 RAM is coming in 2021

Is anyone fired up about this? It's "just" getting a bit faster. The time where there were technologies you had to have, are over for almost 10 years already. The only people I know that still get excited about new computer hardware are people who spend their entire free time gaming, and can't live...

Re: larger nets for SF?

hmmm... I see a difference in style of play and FRC was certainly better, but Elo gain from doubling? - from whatever possible gain was obtained, it does not appear to be worth the extra 20MB of space to store... just my $.02 .. I do like the fact that Albert tried something new and maybe he is on ...

Re: Future progress of chess software in chess

Sure there are retards and oldies in ICCF that can't use SF and have a machine that is having 1Mnps. 95% of active ppl with rating above 2100 on ICCF today use the latest SF and hardware that makes at least 15Mnps from a starting position. So your strawman is quite weak there ;). Nowadays with the ...

Re: Future progress of chess software in chess

There are wins in correspondence chess, and everyone is using Stockfish and other strong engines to help with the analysis. There are also losses, and a large number of draws. What part of the losses and draws is the influence of humans? It is hard to say. I think that very strong humans can add mo...

Re: Lc0 in CCC matches

I think they should go to double sized networks, like FF2. On high end hardware at decent time controls, 384x30 are clearly the strongest amongst those tested by the LC0 group. I have found on my hardware the big networks are considerably stronger tactically. Since tactical strength appears to be a...

Just a quick question: is Banksia 0.38 for MS Windows (Merry Christmas Version) the current version?

I am presuming that is the 'current version'...

Re: Stockfish One Thread Challenge

Perhaps we are at now at a point now where Elo gains will be very slow going from this point forward? If we are, that is not a good thing for computer chess - as far as human play goes , we have a long way to go yet ;>), a few centuries at least. It may mark the end of Correspondence Chess (Compute...
