Re: Fritz 17

For that I'm glad Rybka is dead, I guess it's time to update my avatar... Long overdue, we've talked about Vas "involvement" in F15 as far back as summer, 2015. For me, the confirmation that there was no future for the engine, came exactly at this point . The original article being from Albert Silv...

Re: Fritz 17

BTW, has anyone reported about the engine being released as Fritz 17? Developed by Frank Schneider, the author of a very strong private engine known as Gingko, the new Fritz 17 engine will not only surpass the previous Fritz 16, but also provide new analysis for those seeking yet another new look at...

Re: Fritz 17

My understanding is that to be able to utilise cuddn-fp 16 you need to have an RTX 20 Series Card, like 2060, 2070, 2080 Super and of course the 2080 Ti Card. He has an old GTX 1660, which will have only have cudnn as backend option,not cuddn-fp-16, unless of course he has the new GTX1660 Super,whi...

Re: Fritz 17

Thx for speedy response, Graham and Ozymandias. Sorry but I have no idea what fp16 is. Not asking for a lengthy explanation; just a quick pointer for if I buy this thing. Cheers.... It's what makes the new nVidia cards so fast. They're faster than previous generation even without it, but once you t...

Re: Fritz 17

I would like to know whether it's worth getting Fat Fritz with only a GTX 1660 GPU. I have Ryzen 1700 with 32GB RAM. Does it just run a little slower or not at at all? Yes - it will be fine. Albert says that you can actually use fp16 according to a well-known tester. Not quite as fast as the RTX ca...

Re: Fritz 17

I don’t understand the question I asked if I can copyright the picture or not. That you don't know would show how you wouldn't know if Fat Fritz's weights could be copyrighted either. The phrase “picture I made” does not contain sufficient information to be able to answer. And all I could have done...

Re: Fritz 17

Texts need to be quite extensive to be copyrightable. A book, a poem and so on. The words need to have been creatively assembled by human hand in some meaningful way Computer programs already produce (compose?) music. You can get a drawing out of a picture and have it in the style of a dead painter...
