Re: Why does TCEC use unbalanced opening?

Alright stockfish 12 is very good and two different entity in LTC produce very likely a draw. But would you make the same bet using stockfish 12 against the best engine of 10 years engine from now? We will say that the chess is nearly solved when there is no more progress, Imagine having to play th...

Re: Why does TCEC use unbalanced opening?

Do you want the best quality chess, or just artificial entertainment? Best quality chess from positions that matter. Balanced positions don't matter anymore as they are too easily drawn by current engines on current hardware. I would love someone to prove me wrong on this. I am willing to offer 100...

Re: 87% of the poll voted that SF will win Tcec Sufi 19.

Chess stats is a game of odds. And I know SF, and Lc0 better then most. So I was one of the 87% under these playing conditions. But this is not true chess, or testing. But a match of who can play garbage openings better. It seems to me that those engines are so strong that we can test one of the tw...

Re: New AMD Zen 3 and Ryzen processors

I changed the core settings to 8 and I now get 7m nps, which is reasonable for the chip that I have.
For what it's worth I get around 50M nps from starting position with the newest SF on 3970x so it's a bit bigger difference than passmark benchmarks indicate.

Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

One easy way to access talkchess from Poland is to download the Opera browser and then enable built-in VPN there.
It still doesn't work using Polish IP unfortunately.

Re: Test position: Neural net blindness.

I've never seen what you describe. You should run Lc0 from a command line, to rule out GUI-related issues. Here are five runs of the position in this thread, with Lc0 terminated after each run. No GUI was used. Default settings, except for Backend = cudnn-fp16. It seems others are confirming unpred...

Re: Test position: Neural net blindness.

I filled an issue on Github about it: https://github.com/LeelaChessZero/lc0/issues/1067 I've signaled it in the past and it seems to me it's not considered a serious problem by the devs. From my perspective it means running Lc0 with more than 1 thread just doesn't work and users who use it for analy...

Re: Test position: Neural net blindness.

Really nice, especially that it comes from a subvariation of a very well known human game and I am sure Kasparov would find 33.Rxe6 quickly. One more time it looks like bug in search. I've already posted about it a few times on both Discord and Lc0 forum. There are positions where it sometimes find ...

Re: NVIDIA RTX 3080, RTX 3070 SPECIFICATIONS LEAKED FOR THE FIRST TIME

If I am reading it right it looks like about 50% improvement. Not very exciting but maybe once they make an appearance prices for 2080ti drop to something reasonable.
