Re: Lc0 ... the GOOD and the BAD

Oh, I would have no clue about how to do that. But I think that there is very big potential with the new hardware that is coming for AI. For a long time GPU's were considered very poor for chess as they do not do integer based calculation. For at least a decade, NVIDIA GPUs (and probably other GPUs...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

est. 2000+ CCRL Elo on an highend GPU https://www.chessprogramming.org/Zeta#NPS_and_Playing_Strength -- Srdja I wonder how much it improved node per node from a GTX480 vs an R9 Fury X. The Fury should be 2-3 times as fast. So I guess CCRL Elo should be 2100-2150 at least. 2500 CCRL on an RTX2080ti?...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

How strong is Zeta? est. 2000+ CCRL Elo on an highend GPU https://www.chessprogramming.org/Zeta#NPS_and_Playing_Strength -- Srdja Cool, I will give it a test. With my GTX 1080 (non TI), how many workers should I use? May I keep increasing the number until the nps won't go up anymore? Is there a swe...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

I think GPU's being used for chess will be only a temporary thing as for chess a much better solution would be to use cards that are specifically designed to do NN and nothing to do with graphics. This will probably become very common very soon and some kind of hardware equation needs to be agreed ...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

I still think GPU's are just doing this as a "side business" and most likely something else will do these NN calcualtions. Intel is coming up with a CPU based system that is supposed to also do well in NN. They will have a custom ASIC chip just for NN. I get the feeling this is like 80386 processor...
