Re: SF10 excels in Arasan suite: 189/200

I abort after 5 consecutive plies (default in Fritz GUI). I have no 10 hours to run suite. Thanks for your response. I totally agree with you. I just wasn't sure if there was some generally accepted standard to use when analyzing epd files. P.S. I also have Fritz GUI but was too stupid to figure ou...

Re: SF10 excels in Arasan suite: 189/200

Jouni, I would like to try to reproduce your result, but I do not have a lot of experience with using epd files. I think I have figured out how to process epd files with Arena but I have one question. Do you force your gui to use all 3 minutes for each test position or do you let it abort the search...

Re: Houdini Scaling on CEGT Rating List

I have looked at the CCRL 40/40 rating list. As near as I can tell, all Houdini testing was done with 4 CPUs, so this list does not have comparative data about how well Houdini scales with additional CPUs. http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/4040/cgi/compare_engines.cgi?class=Single-CPU+engines&pr...

Re: Houdini Scaling on CEGT Rating List

I was looking at the CEGT 40/20 rating list and was surprised to see that Houdini 6 doesn't seem to scale well with extra CPU's on that list: Houdini 6.0 x64 8 CPU rating 3442 Houdini 6.0 x64 4 CPU rating 3437 A 5 pt. increase. By comparison: Stockfish 9.0 x64 8 CPU rating 3506 Stockfish 9.0 x64 4 ...

Re: King Solomon's position, again (Andscacs & Houdini)

Norlandia, It looks like the 2003 book you reference may have gotten it wrong.

Re: King Solomon's position, again (Andscacs & Houdini)

Hi Norlandia, The answer to your first question is yes. I probe the 6 man Syzygy database. (I also disable any contempt settings in the engine.) Regarding your second question, I am not so interested in processing files of test suites, but I would certainly not mind analyzing an occasional FEN posit...
