Re: New results in the ERET chess test

I assume that Lela is 2 GPU not 2 CPU. Is that correct?

Re: Middlegame positional test-suite

Re: What CPU or GPU has the best time to depth?

I am wondering what setup would give the best time to depth for infinite analysis. I hear a lot about fewer but faster cores. Also, how does lczero in compare with SF in time to depth? Depths reported by LC0 are much lower than those reported by Stockfish. So the depth figure tells you very little....

If your functions are re-entrant, you should not need more than one. Sorry Dann, I do not know what a re-entrant function means.

Re: Middlegame positional test-suite

This is the current set of midgames position for which the best move calculated by computer does not match the given solution. I have hardened the positions by deeper analysis, and will make additional deepening runs. In each case, the field c3 holds the proposed solution from the test set. 2r2rk1/1...

The problem with adjudication based on score

Try this one in your favorite chess engine and you will see the problem immediately (unless some engine scores it zero):
