Re: Tests with kiudee settings and SV-384x30-T60-2900net

Those people wouldn't get good at chess even if they were rich and bought the fastest hardware that they could, they just imagine that if they bought it magic would happen, but there's things money can't buy, and being very good at chess is one of them. You're just being irrational. Of course a lot...

But you don't need any of that to become very good at chess.
Wrong. Some people really need it.

Re: Tests with kiudee settings and SV-384x30-T60-2900net

Like I said before chess is for very rich people. Because who else can afford to buy these super-expensive graphics cards and super-expensive computer motherboards if not very rich people? Only rich people can become very good at chess because only rich people can afford to buy all these super-expen...

Re: Engine's "ELO" revisited

In my opinion Chess is for rich people only because only rich people can afford to buy such massively powerful computers. I'm still using a 4 quad core computer because I simply can't afford to buy a faster computer. I'm also living in poverty in general and I may also become homeless sometime in th...

Re: Engine evaluation consistency/stability

In my opinion it will take at least another 2000 years until a computer will be playing at FIDE world champion level.

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

The way I see it neural network chess engines is only for rich people. Also the installation of neural network engines is difficult and the way I see it the technology is only in the beginning stage. In 50 years from now the technology could change completely and could become much more user friendly...

Re: Engine evaluation consistency/stability

In TCEC SF has many games (white and black) with 0,00 evaluation entire game :!: Some games are over 100 moves. Chess is soon solved? I believe that chess is still very far away from being solved. Even in the year 4020 (we are now in the year 2020) chess would still not be completely solved. You se...

Re: The human gives a beating and encloses the King of the supercomputer in the center of the board of Fritz 15.

The most disappointing thing about chess engines is that during 26 years of hard work there was almost no progress in playing strength. In fact, maybe the engines have even went backwards in playing strength. I think it's also possible, giving the history of chess engines, that chess engines will ne...

Re: In Praise of The King

Chessmaster is old. Most of the games in Chessmaster 9000 are from 40 years ago, some even earlier than that. That's a long time ago. People back then didn't have so much chess knowledge and understanding as we have amassed today. Magnus Carlsen won't make the same positional mistakes as world champ...

Re: Analysis help for those with the processing power

A bit deeper analysis with multi-pv shows that the top 3 move choices are all very drawish, at least according to Stockfish: I wouldn't trust Stockfish. Stockfish still has many weaknesses in its evaluations. For example I noticed that many times Stockfish weakens his own kingside which is not good...
