Re: Google lets you put TPUs in your own machine

Yeah, I can't imagine why anyone would buy into that platform when Nvidia cards are there, which handle a much, much wider array of compute tasks with an already robust ecosystem. Or even next gen AMD cards will likely be far more generally useful. But whatever... people are free to sell their wares...

Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

Hold out for the next gen cards.

Either will get better perf/watt & absolute performance, or will very likely be able to buy previous gen cards for cheap as they become 2nd tier for mining.

Re: Run LC Zero in LittleBlitzerGUI

The amount of memory for hashing is the resource
Exactly like the presence of a GPU ;).

Re: Run LC Zero in LittleBlitzerGUI

What about hash size? Different engines take up different amounts of space per TT entry. If one is more efficient than the other, then assigning a fixed amount of hash size to both engines will result in one having few entries available and thus be at a relative disadvantage. Perhaps each engine sho...

Re: Run LC Zero in LittleBlitzerGUI

You test Brainfish.... And if a GPU is present in the system, nothing is stopping other chess programs from taking advantage of its compute power. Each engine would have access to the same resources. Imagine having a tournament, and saying well, some of the engines present do not support TBs, so no ...

Re: Run LC Zero in LittleBlitzerGUI

But using the GPU would be not fair for the opponent engines, which are running on CPU only, of course.
Lol.

Re: LCZero update

Most of the games on the site are not a good reflection of the network strength because they are played with a high level of noise. If you click on Matches and then the ID for the match you can see more representative games. The current network which is self-rated at ~3100 Elo is probably ~1050 "rea...
