Re: Leela Chess Zero and what is the "Best" Graphics Card.

This match is a worse match up in terms of NPS (2.5x to 3x NPS advantage) then matching a RTX 2080 ti vs RTX 2060. This NPS advantage netted Lc0 with only a +47 elo advantage. And generally you will see the most advantage with shorter time controls. This is totally expected coz Lc0 scaling is worse...

Re: Trying out the Leela Hybrid engine (NN with AB)

LeelaFish is a modified version of the Lc0 engine that gets help from an outside (auxiliary) engine. Leela uses the AuxEngine's PV to boost the Policy of those moves. https://github.com/killerducky/lc0/wiki/LeelaFish With default settings and SF10 auxiliary on 1 thread, +40 Elo points to pure Lc0 w...

Re: how to run Lc0 on two RTX 2070 ?

Gee, how can you guys be so clueless??? Its okay to be clueless. Forums like ccc can help with experience, thats one of the reasons to be here. Giving advice while being clueless is human :D C.K. Being clueless is ofc fine. Lacking simple comprehension skills OTOH is not something you'd be able to ...

SLI is a parallel processing algorithm for computer graphics. Acronym means Scan-Line Interleave.

So Mr. Smartass, how about the link to a page regarding SLI and machine learning applications?

Re: how to run Lc0 on two RTX 2070 ?

Actually I also have wondered if SLI is a good idea. Of course I know you don't need it for Lc0, but maybe it will consider that the 2 cards are 1 card and thus might be more efficient. Maybe not. If you are running 2 rtx 2070 GPUs. I would only connect them in SLI. Or any cards that are able to ru...

Re: LCZero Chess Engine Performance ........

Thank you so much for this! This really gives a better idea of what kind of hardware to get the most cost effective performance. One question I have is how scaling affects all this. For example how does 2 x RTX 2060 Ti compare to a RTX Titan or RTX 2080Ti. This might also be helpful in choosing the...

Re: My non-OC RTX 2070 is very fast with Lc0

Thanks, I was expecting 1.5-1.6 faster, and it comes at little below 1.5 faster. Clearly not the best value. I hope, in some 6-9 months I will have a Ryzen 8 or 16 core machine with 2 x RTX 2070. I am not sure about the effective speed-up from 2 GPUs, it can be anything from 1.4 to 1.95. Nobody see...

Re: Alphazero news

Cerebelleum best book lines give even worse diversification to SF8 than SF8 itself on 44 threads. I have no confidence in that result. "Human Openings" given in A0 preprint (those 12) were heavily favoring A0, and I have again no confidence in that result. I don't even know how many openings they c...
