Re: Lc0 question

Thanks. For me any difference in strength between SF and Lc0 is insignificant, what matters is that they could not be more different in how they play chess. Lc0 plays blitz like a super-GM might play correspondence chess (unaided), whereas SF plays very unhuman chess. After a few seconds, Lc0 score...

Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

The difficult part is that how does one say the hardware is equal - and one cannot. Essentially ,we're comparing two different breeds of cats and they both have a lot of plusses for what they can do. Thanks, that's an excellent explanation... But people have found ways to do it, using formulas base...

Re: Little thought experiment

On another world there exists a very powerful computer using alien tech. This chess machine does a true (as in literal) Brute Force search 15 plies deep. It uses current SF E.F How many plies deep, approximately, would normal SF have to search to equal the strength of the 15 plies alien machine? Do...

Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

After 26 games in TCEC SUFI, Leela is leading with 15-11. My prediction for TCEC was just 55-45 Leela win. cap4.PNG FPGA might come next for chess engines, but it's a bit more involved to make them play chess. Not exactly fair for something like TCEC, but I think Stockfish's hardware saviour is a c...

How many plies deep, approximately, would normal SF have to search to equal the strength of the 15 plies alien machine?

No, I am saying it doesn't scale up with more cores at all. In fact, you will lose performance with more cores, not gain.
But for the example I gave - dual 2080 Ti - 3 cores is clearly faster than one. I'm not sure I follow your point.

Re: Can Leela use 2x RTX gpus?

Using chessbase 15 gui? Using chessok Aquarium gui? What should I do? Google and see where this has been asked many times before Done, but still some guys have speed problems to reach more nps, not like it would be 2 gpus. The CPU they have is also a factor. Slow core clocks will hurt performance, ...
