Re: Seer

Thanks! I will try it out today. I am not very optimistic though, because the core2 binary you released now, just adds around 4% in speed. Obviously missing popcount and/or newer instructions makes a huge difference here (note that this hardware is from 2009). For better comparison, vanilla SF12 (n...

Re: Seer

... Thanks for the binaries. I still would like to create a core2 compile (if you have time for a makefile instead of cmake), may be I can squeeze a bit more out of Seer for my old quadcore. What flags are used for the generic one currently? ... Sure. I can add a core2 compile in a little bit. For ...

Re: Seer

I traced the issue with loading the Weights on Windows to Windows interpreting bytes equaling 26 as indicating the end of the file. I've now added binaries to the release page for version 1.0 and appended the version number to the engine's name. Binaries can now be found here: https://github.com/co...

Re: Seer

... Again the appeal to engine authors - please create a separate thread if introducing a new engine or important updates. The new engines 2020 thread is intended for testers. It would be interesting to see whether AMD's PEXT beats the native C PEXT implementation, most use magic bitboards as fallb...

Re: New engine releases 2020

It would be more helpful if compiles were provided by the engine author. My apologies. I guess I should have invested more time into providing binaries with the initial release. Let me elaborate on why I opted not to provide binaries at this time. To get reasonable performance, my engine has to be ...

Re: 87% of the poll voted that SF will win Tcec Sufi 19.

Glanced at the standing: Sf destroys Leela 9:1 =36 pairs. Poor Leela. Soon to be 10:1. Of course the error bar is huge, but that would be 60 Elo higher. That is quite a bit higher than the 12 Elo difference they have listed at tcec 10:1 game pairs , which is currently W18:L9:D67 totally, surely is ...
