Re: Nice PC for chess with Linux as default OS

I guess if you really need/want the mobility. But even then, probably better to set up a dedicated desktop and remote in with a mobile device of one's choosing: phone, tablet, affordable laptop. That way you get better performance, don't burn through battery, or have to deal with heat.

Re: Knight equals 48 pawns?

But they are about 14 times as much as they should be. According to who? I think it is fairly common for Lc0 to report scores in the balllpark of 10 pawns for positions where it cannot demonstrate a win against itself. Perhaps for old nets produced before the temperature drop and TB re-scoring. And...

Well, sounds like you better work on Komodo TB scores... ;). You are essentially criticizing a high score by LC0 because it knows the position is not just a knight up but more likely completely winning. This is similar to what one sees traditional engines with special endgame cases (TBs or known win...

Re: Knight equals 48 pawns?

The job of a chess engine eval is not to provide a value based upon inferior play of opponent, but an objective measure of the position (assuming best play as far as it knows), at least in my eyes. Now if someone wants to change that definition, they are certainly free to do so, but I doubt many wil...
