Re: Harware and software in chess

In those early days programs were made selective to increase horizon.
Best programmers (e.g. Ed Schröder) were capable reaching 1950 ELO with 6502 32kb ROM 8 kB ram on 5 MHz.

Brute force made not much sense in those days.

Re: Harware and software in chess

The idea is to measure how strong stockfish is on fossile Hardware the spracklen and others had to use.

This means same MHz, same maximum program size (32 kB) and same maximum ram size (8 kB).

Re: Big boost in strength for LC0 by simply changing VGA card

I have been playing around with LC0 on a pretty good VGA card but to be honest, but in quick tourneys it was getting trounced by even SF7 with SF using 6 core Intel CPU. So I decided to go for a good VGA card and got a RTX 2080 Ti. Man was that thing huge when it came in !!! I had to move all my co...
