Increment of 30s is too pretty large.
Absolutely, a lot of time would be wasted that way in easy endings.

Re: How do you know if your cpu is equal to your gpu?

A lot of controversial HW configurations can be devised, that would raise questions at either side of the fence. The problem is a legitimate one and can't be dismissed with the sort of easy fixed I've seen proposed so far.

Re: How do you know if your cpu is equal to your gpu?

Not an easy question to answer. The easiest way would be to indicate the CPU and GPU used, as if it were a surname: Lc0 0.22.0 T40B.4-160 GTX1050 (like they already do at CCRL), but also Stockfish 2019-10-09 64-bit 4CPU i7 2600K HT off (for example). This wouldn't be feasible for rating lists with m...

This information is more or less useless for me.

1. More Tensor cores is what I need
Either than or more dedicated cores fro FP16 operation, I wonder how we'll be able to compare future GTX cards to the Geforce 16 series, on paper. I assume they'll keep the RTX line out of my reach.

Re: Can current top engines still be beaten?

Re: Can current top engines still be beaten?

I think measuring (or approximating) complexity of positions is something that will be of great interest for practical players in the future. The problem is that even the most difficult path can be drawn by any seriously prepared player. I said it three years ago, in (Freestyle) tournaments, the mo...
