Re: Polyglot 64-bit

An alternative, which I am currently studying for my program, so that memory is not a problem is to use a database, such as sqlite, or a mixture of a dictionary/cache in memory and a database, to create an intermediate file, prior to final filtering. The problem with this solution is that it is muc...

Re: Polyglot 64-bit

what is polyglot_tolerant? Secondly, with 32Gb ram (Polyglot likely will take 16Gb of internal work space) it must be able to make a book of 5-6-7Gb in one run, meaning without merge. It's one the other Polyglot 64-bit versions I mentioned in my first post, in this thread. I will try 64GB, once I g...

Re: Polyglot 64-bit

Yes, I've been finally been able to run it. Next week I'm getting 32GB more of RAM, I'll test the upper limits of this thing then. Cool. It looks like it suffers from the same limitation that polyglot_tolerant has: it doesn't use virtual memory. This, added to the normal polyglot behaviour of doubl...

I was hoping for a cheaper price.
Me too, I wonder if they'll also raise the price of their flagship CPU: AMD Is Working On A Monster 64-Core Threadripper

Re: Polyglot 64-bit

So we're clear, can we make a book containing just moves 6-10, with the released executable? Yep, in the next POLY version. You don't need a polyglot.ini using --make-book. Does POLY have the old size limitations or has it also been updated to 64-bit? Yes, I've been finally been able to run it. Nex...

Re: armageddon in norway chess

rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/4P3/8/PPPP1PPP/RNBQKBNR w KQkq - 0 1 An extra tempo might be straying too much from equality. I think that a better alternative in the long run, would be to alter the position of the pieces, but nothing else. Something akin to 960 but without the drawbacks (no castling, unnatu...

Re: The Last Survivor of AB engine, Stockfish! What position will Stockfish stand?

I don't see a large progress compared to previous generations, aside IPC, which increases by a substantial 15% (according to them). The per core performance will be as high as the best Intel can offer, if their data is correct, making the processors very competitive in the game market, and I think ...
