Re: Lc0 Evaluation Explanation

Zulli: Do you know the meaning of these terms: "P", "Q", "Q+U", & "V"? I am guessing that V = visits. But, as pointed out, Be2 does not have the highest V value of all the moves shown. Or does the lc0 site have an explanation of the parameters, since when I searched here for "visits", it gave me no ...

Komodo 13.1 suggested parameters for analysis

Hi LK: I just installed latest Komodo.

It is unclear to which...

GPU recommendation needed

"If you want to test Lc0. Then you need a RTX card. What RTX card depends on what you want to spend. I would recommend the RTX 2070s. Depending on price. This gets you really close to a RTX 2080 in performance." First, thanks to all the experts on this board, who provided really useful feedback. The...

GPU recommendation needed

I have a dual-Xeon system with 2 Intel Xeon E5-2686-V3 cores or 2 X 18 = 36 cores total. I would like to add a decent GPU card so as to test lc0 but not reach for the top (GTX 2080). What would be recommended in terms of a value purchase: GTX 2070; GTX 2070S; or is there an AMD GPU I should look at ...

What about Threadripper 3rd gen

MW: I think I will take up your offer on advice re my new system in 10-12/2019. But why does everyone talk about Ryzen 3900X when next gen. Threadripper is coming up in Q4, perhaps 64 cores and certainly 32 cores? I got this advice from ICCF friendly opponent: "Put the graphics card in a second PC w...

Re: Komodo MCTS

Thanks, Mark, for the tips.
