Re: It looks like the big 3 in TCEC are LC0, SF and Allie now!

What is the deal with this "Allie"? "AllieStein"? What's its story? Have the rating lists become so irrelevant that they are missing the two strongest machines in the top three? Not irrelevant, but too slow. In the day of the NN engines. Improvements came fast and furious. It is non stop just for m...

Re: It looks like the big 3 in TCEC are LC0, SF and Allie now!

Damn, this AllieStein could mess up the results in a 5-engine round-robin. It is weaker head to head against Lc0, and weaker against SF than Lc0 is against SF head to head. If Lc0 and SF qualify to the superfinal, the outcome will be a clear Lc0 win. But if AllieStein qualifies, I am less certain a...

Re: It looks like the big 3 in TCEC are LC0, SF and Allie now!

Now Top 3 engines tied in TCEC! The best engines are all very active in improving. And all the best engines are free. Komodo is the only commercial engine at the top that is still active. And why must we watch Houdini 6 from 2017 lose again. Tcec needs a rule to not play engines season after season...

Re: LC0-Leela0 Rating Controversy..Whats The Strength?

What are these statements? Lc0 T40 on an RTX 2070 GPU is stronger head to head than SF_dev on 8 i7 or Ryzen cores, from not too outrageous openings. What FIDE rating that means, you guess. I think it's impossible to _measure_ the FIDE rating of Lc0 T40 RTX 2070 in a pool of human FIDE players, as m...

Optimizing Resources for Ponder Match Lc0 and A/B Engines..

I will explain my method for running ponder matches on a AMD 2950x with 8 dimms of quad channel memory, and a 970 Evo Plus for Table bases. This method works best with low utilization NN engines on my system configuration. You must test this first on your system configuration. As there are other opt...
