This is in high contrast to Intel which has the biggest and most powerful army of engineers of the entire galaxy, maybe even in the local group of galaxies!
Well it's great they are the greatest in the Galaxy because all they've given us for 5 years is Skylake, Skylake, Skylake, Skylake

Re: Are we sure that Stockfish NNUE is better than the Normal Stockfish ?

... And the reason for this is TCEC uses bias openings. If a match shows a win for both engines in the same line. It is a busted opening. But we already know from TCEC own words. Wins are more important for views. So this is expected. TCEC is not a fair competition, it is only an interesting show o...

I guess there is no information yet on whether pext/pdep were fixed.
Decent performance increase. I'm guessing Threadripper in Dec/Jan??

Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX

Apparently, it will offer 8 channel memory up to 2TB. But the burning question is, will it have a boatload of PCIE-4 channels like the EPYC chips do? I’ve been meaning to ask this for ages: for chess, I’m not sure the extra RAM channels will help much. CPU Clock speed is more important. In which ca...

Re: MessChess

I think they might, but I have not tinkered with it (Banksia) yet to see. Anyway, I downloaded them from here: https://c.gmx.net/@317206859884790529/9U7_drDsTfqpD6IUpWRCXg It's not a good idea to post this 'direct' link - it may change from time to time.

Re: Next-Gen GPUs for LC0

Nvidia changed the definition of CUDA cores. You need a workload that fully saturates the FP32 units to get close (but not quite) to the effect the same number of CUDA cores would have had in Turing. 1 CUDA in Turing : 1xFP32 unit + 1xINT32 unit able to execute concurrently 2 CUDA in Turing : 1xFP3...

Re: Next-Gen GPUs for LC0

Seems like there is actual data appearing now Very early results by people quoting ankan suggest if we take the 2080 Ti as a reference point: 3080 is about 1.4x faster 3090 is about 1.6x faster A100 is about 2.7x faster Seems like the batch size makes a big difference That last result contradicts wh...
