Endgame test position

On 4790K 4.5GHz 3-cores used with 5-men syzygy. White is able to win. Idk if stronger hardware can save black.

Classical SF managed to defeat NNUE.

Re: Help question on compiling engines for old systems like Windows 98

Sorry for the bump. What is the approximate strength of SF 12 port running on Pentium 1 or 2 from the 1990 ?

Re: Mate in ??

Maybe Houdini 6 with Nalimov 6 is able to reach mate score with good accuracy. I have Nalimov 6 on external drive as backup. But i find it cumbersome to have to remove half of the selected syzygy 7 files on my 2 TB M.2 just to check for this one. I i'm planning to purchase another SSD solely for Nal...

Re: Nibbler Lc0 GUI - updates

I tried including this code

Code: Select all

"options": {
		"Backend": "roundrobin",
		"BackendOptions": "(backend=cudnn-fp16,gpu=0),(backend=cudnn-fp16,gpu=1)",
		"Threads": 3,
		},
Doesn't seem to work.
