Re: Komodo 13.1 released

Thanks Mark. Was there any particular reason to use switch to power of two - 64, 128, 256 hash system beside being more user friendly ?

Re: Komodo 13.1 released

Play store description say K13.02. I noticed table memory were reduced to 64 from 128. Any info on this one. I suppose on relatively strong hardware 128 and more is still good ?

Re: planned weekly komodo vs human series on chess.com

Maybe Chess.com should update their setup mechanism. The way i see it, if FRC is to be combined with material odds onwards. Making it as confusing as possible with randomization should in theory be better for the engine side which in return should allow for slightly higher odds allocated to the huma...

Re: planned weekly komodo vs human series on chess.com

Maybe Komodo team might give chess960 + material odds a try. The disharmony of the pieces offered in chess960 might offset some material deficit. Most top engines play chess960 equally good as standard setup. Didn't you read the previous post? Two of the games will be precisely what you ask, chess9...

Re: Armageddon Openings released

I discovered this position couple of years ago.

For two pawns white got open files for the rooks and black can't castle either sides.

Re: Lc0 on RTX 2080 Super

I tried Lc0 in selfplay in this borderline endgame (by borderline i mean considerable advantage for white but not certain that it's winning edge). i7-5960X 4.4GHz Net used: T40e-swa-3000 TC:30m+30s EGTB: Partial 7-piece syzygy GUI: Fritz GUI [Event "DESKTOP-N1IDKRV, Rapid 30m+30s"] [Site "Expert-Des...

Re: Lc0 on RTX 2080 Super

Speed ranging from 17 to middle of 30s into 50 kilo nodes per second.

Network is 128x10-2019_0812_1326_54_239 - is it good and is there any better at this point?

Lc0 on RTX 2080 Super

Received 2080 Super yesterday replacing my 1070 Ti that have been in use for about 2 years. Speed for Lc0: 16-35-55 Kilo nodes per second. Game observation: look at that miserable bishop at h1 later in the game. Komodo was lucky this time. [Event "DESKTOP-N1IDKRV, Rapid 30m+30s"] [Site "Expert-Deskt...
