Re: UCI_Elo 1500 engines and FIDE Elo

Maia Lichess 1546 has a blitz Lichess rating of around 1546 . This engine is run with maia-1100.pb.gz net at node 1 on a gauntlet test below. The formula to get FIDE Elo from Lichess Blitz Elo is, FIDE rating = 65 + [0.87 x Lichess Blitz Rating] based from the regression in 2019 . Maia FIDE Elo = 6...

Re: Honey 13.1 Release

A very minor update was made to NPS_Level - it now works! The default setting of zero is off. The lowest NPS setting is 1 and it should be 60 to 70 nps pers second. Meaning that will you average 60-70 nps for whatever time control you select - not designed for very micro time controls. Each higher s...

Re: Honey 13.1 Release

Thank you very much for the amazing chess engine. In my opinion, this is the best sparring partner in combination with a neural network. I have a two questions about the options: 1. Could you please explain how the options: "Bench_KNPS" and "NPS_Level" works? 2. Are there any option that should be ...

Re: Stockfish 13 depth 16 rating estimate

What would be the estimated rating of Stockfish 13 at fixed depth 16 playing against the players in the Meltwater Chess Tour at a time control of 15 minutes + 10 seconds increment?
