Re: How many elo do ponder equals to

Another workaround is to disable the ponder fuction internally in stockfish, and rename it as "SF_Ponder_OFF" inside GUI. Any help will be appreciated. Sure, but that requires programming and compiling. HGM: which winboard version do you recommend? 4.8.0. Just install the engine you don't want to p...

Re: How many elo do ponder equals to

MikeB: how did you let 3-core utilize ponder?

I don't know of GUI that allow one side use ponder and the other not. Like a sort of handicap.

One solution is to disable ponder in the stockfish source code if that is a possible.

Re: How many elo do ponder equals to

Hardware is assumed to be equal. And I suppose you will be running the engines on separate machines (or the pondering engine will compete for resources with the non-pondering engine when it is the latter's turn). Imagine two machines with same hardware linked together. Same engine on both machines.

Re: Leela Chess Zero 42565 vs Stockfish 140619

What i'm asking for is that you adjust SF threads to 29. Why do you want me to slow down stockfish? Because that is what your settings will do to stockfish on my 2950X. I am not running a 4 core I7. I don't need to carve out 3 threads for Lc0. When Lc0 only needs 6% of the CPU. That would be like g...

How many elo do ponder equals to

Engine A ponder while engine B doesn't. Advantage +/- 50 elo. Doubling is worth more. Now the question is if it's likely engine A equalize engine B in fast time formats or who got the upper hand. The effectiveness of ponder is probably higher in shorter time controls than in longer. Do you put your ...
