Re: We are past the stage where the OS has become the virus

My chess analysis was running slow. So I looked at what processes in memory were doing. There was this thing: Compattelrunner.Exe It was using 17% of my compute power, and my chess task which should be at 95% was struggling. Apparently, it is MS Windows spy process that you cannot turn off. So I fo...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

I'm fine with the way this thread has gone so far. Some engine stuff, some Apple discussion.

Re: Lc0 in CCC matches

GPUs are also getting more powerful. Every 6 months or so, there will be a new crop, much more powerful than the previous. I think the real problem with the LC0 approach right now is the miners who are hoarding the GPU cards. It ramps up the price to sky-high and makes it hard for people to get the...
