Re: FGRL, 60 sec + 0.6 sec - 2. Dragon by Komodo Chess 1.0, 7. Komodo 14.1 MCTS, 10. SlowChess Blitz Classic 2.4

Is this AVX2 thing only Ryzen? In my Intel tests bmi has been always the fastest version of SF NNUE! Every CPU that supports BMI2 supports AVX2. (except for maybe a few weird chips) BMI2 compiles are compiled with the assumption that the CPU will also be able to utilize AVX2 in mind. So if you're u...

Re: Perfect chess engine elo ( 32 men TB) can be within 200 of Stocfish in Tcec LTC conditions

No! You can not prove this ever. Why do you think chess can be proven. What laws of physics do you live under. Your ignorance is profound. If you don't like this response then stop posting such nonsense. It's like I'm talking past you. I just said that I know I can't prove it and everyone knows we ...

There is no reason it has to be from the starting position.
There isn't? What was the purpose of the Elo rating system as it was created?
To better predict the strength of (human) chess players than previous rating systems.

Disappointing result.
Standard Komodo marketing for last couple of years isn't it?

Claim 5-15 elo gain every new release while gaining nothing majority of the time.
Sheer incompetence or scammers at work?

Re: Komodo 14.1 Release and Dragon Announcement

Komodo 14.1 Release and Dragon Announcement The improvement from Komodo 14.1 to Dragon is enormous, even larger than the gain Stockfish got from this NNUE idea. Strange. For ages the marketing line / general understanding is that SF has the better search, and Komodo the better EF. Don't believe mar...

Re: NNUE Question - King Placements

On the Lc0 discord somebody came along recently talking about GPL-defying clones and NNUE having brought a new revolution in computer Xiangqi too. I had an extremely hard time confirming it since Xiangqi literally translates to Chess so whenever I search I get a lot of links to Stockfish... But I've...

Re: How to scale stockfish NNUE score?

I am always getting excited when you're trying to implement engines for games other but chess. I'm just wondering what motivates you? I mean usually people developing one engine for years and it's difficult to master chess programming at a decent level... But you're trying many other games! This is...

Re: NNUE incredibly poor endgame performance

Simple mating is a search task. I wouldn't blame the evaluation not finding a mate. Andreas Mostly, but SF for example has some very simple heuristics to aid in finding the mate in such situations. (Like KRvK and KQvK endgames) And if you replace the whole eval with NNUE you also throw away those h...
