Re: GCC 8.1 vs GCC 10.1

my experience is that gcc compiles are worse and more bloated than they were with older versions. Somewhere iaround GCC 4.6 we reached the golden age of gcc, we went downhill ever since, whereas LLVM is stronger than ever. I too have had the same experience, although my "best" form is GCC4.8. For a...

Re: Java vs C. It's not like one would think.

And this is the amazing part! An interpreted language is only 30% slower. I think, this is the result of a great runtime-optimization, something a rigid machine code cannot do. I find it more likely that slow-java practices translated themselves directly to C, and that the "small" speedgain is hind...

Re: Xiphos x Ethereal: Who has the best style?

look at the actual games and critique them from a stylistic point of view. Do you really think you, or anyone else, is capable of viewing a large enough sample to be able to determine a change in (alleged) style from a change that ultimately impacts an engine by a few elo? Its not like people are r...

No, that's not correct. See the results against the weaker opponents.
I suppose the + values next to each H2H are NOT the H2H elo difference for the matchup then

Re: FGRL - rating lists June 20th 2020

Ethereal 12.25 ( -7 to Ethereal 12.00) Seems you have the first rating list with enough weak opponents that the contempt from V12.00 that is no longer default in V12.25 is a big deal. Should be far better results in your more exclusive lists. If not, something is wrong. Are you using Linux, or the ...

Re: Xiphos x Ethereal: Who has the best style?

Why does Lev Aronian prefer an engine from years ago because as he says "it moves match his style" ...
