Glanced at the standing:

Sf destroys Leela 9:1 =36 pairs. Poor Leela.
Soon to be 10:1.

Sorry for invading your thread, but is there a download available for Inferno?

Re: Future of computer chess: 2 top engines?

Yes, price per performance is clearly won by Stockfish NNUE I agree. On a 4 core system or a smartphone. And If this is all I had, Stockfish is the clearly winner. The question is if price and performance is not the only consideration, is Stockfish NNUE clearly the best. And that is still up for de...

Re: Future of computer chess: 2 top engines?

Komodo 11.2 is only 26 Elo points behind version 14, at CCRL 40/15. It was released on July 17, 2017. SF had been the clear number one for over a year, by the time Lc0 matured, and now it is again; this last T60 run has been rather disappointing, not to mention incredibly long. The main reason why ...

Re: Request for someone to train an NNUE for Ethereal

Eth-NNUE does seem to be a lot slower than Cfish and SF.
Only 300 knps (from start) on 1 core is really low. SFnnue always did over double.

Re: Request for someone to train an NNUE for Ethereal

I think my data generation should be just about complete. When I create a net with it, it will be a flip net though. Look at Noob's changes what to change to make it work: (not a lot btw) https://github.com/noobpwnftw/Stockfish/tree/flip Unlikely it will pass Fishtest so you can use it. I'll try a ...

Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

It's not "a new evaluation term". A new evalution term doesn't discard the rest of the eval, it doesn't kill eval originality. It's a drop-in eval replacement. What is "eval originality"? Is there some term that chess engine programmers know about but nobody else does? I guess that every single eva...

Re: Did Rofchade adopt NNUE?

Seems like my prediction that RofChade with NNUE > Leela wasn't even off mark.
(I made that statement before Jhorthos went berserk with his new nets)

Near SF11 at 60+0.6 probably translates to (easily) taking over at a more extended TC.

Re: CCRL flawed testing : SF12 above SF12 8CPU

Fastgm page has test with SF8 and there after 3000 games 8th vs 1th was +158 ELO. SF wiki has value of +178 ELO after 1000 games. Both 60+0.6 games. But we are so much higher level now. Remember we are making a big assumption here. SF 12 is not a A/B engine. Just because SF 8 scales this way. Does ...
