Re: CTF Survey

1. CTF should continue as it is now.

In addition there was a reason why CTF was founded. The reason has not gone away.

I fear, that soon we have only 2 top engines. Stockfish + derivates and Lc0 + derivates. I hope to be wrong :) .
As long as those 2 engines give us 200 elo a year, I am not going to complain. :)

Re: INTERESTING Engines with Unique Styles (Unlike SF)

I am weak at chess, I am interested in an engine with which will sacrifice a bit just to just charge down and get mate as quick as possible. Is there any engine which comes close to doing that ? You can use a medium strong engine like OliThink and start with an advantage, let's say the engine is on...

Re: New AMD Zen 3 and Ryzen processors

Your CPU has 2 chiplets with 2 cores each with an 18 MB cache and costs about $100. The 3970x has 32 cores as 4 chiples with 8 cores which is only 8 times as many but it has a 128 MB cache (144 MB if you consider L2 and L3) and costs about $2000. So it is more than the core count, but also the harw...

Re: New AMD Zen 3 and Ryzen processors

I have no complaints about the 3970x. I am getting over 50m nps with my engine. I have seen it hit 100m in the endgame. <snip> I am not technical and wonder if you (or anyone else) could explain something for me. My computer is Ryzen 3 3100, 16 gig ram. On the website below, Ryzen 7 3700X scores 64...
