Re: Space/Time Tradeoff in year 2020+: What can the community do with 20TB+ Hard Drives?

Why inject leaf removal into this? A sparse-in-memory table can trivially be converted to a simple compact dense list (just skip the zeros) and can be done in place (no extra memory required.) Then at least part of the stored N-bit hash codes in that dense list are mostly sorted in long ascending ru...

Re: Komodo 13.2

Thinking about this....

It shouldnt be hard to write a UCI stubber that emits uci parameters, from a file given on the command line, right after it hands off the "uci" or right before it hands off the "isready" command.

I dont know if the 36 bytes per node you are talking about is worth it, but from your comments "assuming 20ply depth" "for 10-seconds" Storing these graphs in enormous memory is trivial (minimizing time), storing them far more compactly than what is time-efficient also trivial (minimizing space.) Th...

Re: Space/Time Tradeoff in year 2020+: What can the community do with 20TB+ Hard Drives?

Some things to keep in mind. o) Some engines are much better than others at re-starting a search with an already-filled HT, for whatever reason(s). o) transposition tables can now be so big (32GB, 64GB...) that holding even multi-minute searches as a non-lossy connected graph might now be a superior...

Intel is decimated, while having supply shortages, while rushing for a secure redesign.

Re: Networks for lc0

Thanks, Dann. If you don't mind, have another question. Do you think that it would be feasible to feed to lc0 games of a given player to come up with an evaluation function that somehow reproduces his/her style? I know that some programs try to imitate the personality of some players (like PlayMagn...

Re: Komodo 13.2

Maybe you can get mark to add a command-line option for reading in initial uci parameters from a separate file.

You can do really nice things with BMI2 especially PEXT/PDEP but if you are not a programmer it probably doesn't matter.
So the point flew right over your head?

Use the fastest executable for the platform, or you are a wanker with an agenda.

Re: Rumored Threadripper pricing

WTF are they thinking. Right now they are thinking "we're fucked" 5 years ago when they got stuck on 14nm they were thinking "these magic 3D trigates put us way ahead of the competition, so even though we know of no way to make 3D trigates work on 10nm, we are so far ahead..." To frame this complet...
