Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

No sense to buy fast GPU, when engine strength is +-20 to Stockfish. How much does a 10core CPU cost? Because if LC0 on that GPU plays +-20 to Stockfish, it might make sense to go for the GPU instead. I only checked Newegg, which I have heard isn't close to the cheapest nowadays. You can get an 8co...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (12th October 2019)

May I suggest that engines running with GPU be counted as multi-CPU? It feels very wrong to be comparing engines running on a RTX2080 with single core engines (normalized to a very old single core at that...) and then when you go to the "multi-CPU" list and those same engines don't show up at all. O...

Re: 76th Amateur Series Division 4

Thanks for the event Graham! Was a really great struggle at the top and some other engines were really looking good. SlowChess and Scorpio looked especially good when things were going well and Minic won against a lot of the first half of the field in the last round robin, including one of the winne...

Re: Guess the Poster CCC-WordCloud Fun Competition - Part 2

Graham's and Daniel's word clouds could get recognized from a mile away :D

I find/found the previous 10 much harder.

I guess authors of engines outside the most common ones are probably easy to spot. Graham's is easy because nobody else will have so many engines in their wordcloud :D

Re: 76th Amateur Series Division 4

Yes, that was a fantastic game by Deuterium! I think the sacrifice was 100% correct, but Deuterium didn't find the optimal way to proceed, so SF starts to prefer black, but in the end Winter was the first to slip up. Was a fantastic fight and well deserved point that may decide the tournament! In ge...

Re: 76th Amateur Series Division 4

Interesting game featuring a very casual and positional exchange sacrifice as well as a dancing knight. Towards the end black is basically in zugzwang and starts dropping material in desperation.

Re: Fizbo 2 sources just got released

From a very brief look at the code, the part I find most interesting is that Fizbo was aparently using neural networks. At least to me this is news.

Re: FabChess 1.11 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Congrats! FabChess' progress has been fantastic. Of course I couldn't help myself, but take a look at the games between our babies and I stumbled upon this nice and quiet Caro-Kann draw :wink: [Event "FabChess Gauntlet"] [Site "ChessGUI2"] [Date "2019.09.23"] [Round "3.49"] [White "FabChess 1.11 64-...

Re: New engine releases 2019

Winter 0.7 has been released. Hopefully I will find time to make a proper release post this time. To avoid any confusion, this Winter version is NN based. All versions of Winter from 0.6.2 onward are NN based. Furthermore there is no support for GPU, so it should be run like any other CPU based engi...
