Re: Vote for Fritz 17 Replacement

I think differently, I hadn't seen so many engines playing so different chess. When it doesn't happen is that there's some best line to play and they find it, so more depth doesn't help because the best line has been found. Something interesting is that most chess positions are like that, the ones ...

Re: Fritz 17

But that's not a defense, they went and shared what you told them, just not the details, so it was the worst of all worlds, and we'd still be in the dark if you didn't state it openly (as you can see, after their statements people believed Rajlich was working in a new engine, so what Graham and Mik...

Re: Fritz 17

The secret has finally been revealed! That shop made a mistake, Fritz 17 will be a new A/B engine unrelated to Rybka or Vasik Rajlich! And... that was it. Come on Graham and MikeB, couldn't you have told us this? At least we can count on Albert Silver to do proper reporting :roll: In their defense,...

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

I am also unsure about the argument of price always being proportionate to the work, but regardless will say that thousands of man hours have gone into this project from me alone Few thousand of man hours is probably more than all human effort in LCZero project combined! One full-time working year ...

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

Thanks, so what was the inspiration for naming it "Fat Fritz"? The other names you mention give a feeling of "this is very strong", while Fat Fritz gives a vibe of "having fun", in my opinion. Chessbase gets all credit for that. They feared people might balk at Deus X and claim it had religious con...

What's in a name

Does Fat Fritz have anything to do with Deus X? Yes, everything or nothing really. That was the public name I gave for it when it was playing online for tournaments or just test games. But it has been a very relaxed one that has covered multiple neural networks to be completely honest. It has been ...

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

There is a new Fritz 17 engine, a conventional AB engine that has no relation to Rybka or Vasik Rajlich, so no idea why his name is dragged into this at all. Because on this page (https://www.niggemann.com/en/fritz-17-deutsch.html) - Details - it says he is the author of Fritz 17. The description i...

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

Found on http://vlasak.biz/evcnews.htm Eine große Überraschung ist der Motor, bei dem es sich um Fat Fritz handeln wird, modifizierte LC0. ChessBase tötet mehrere Fliegen mit einem Schuss. - Er wird Vasek Rajlich los , der den Motor nicht entwickelt, sondern nur seinen Namen wieder verkauft hat. - ...

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

You just can't put anything on the same plane and for the most of things you are wrong, people is not so ignorant to not get informed on what they are spending. funny that alcoholic aneddoct, thought :lol: I am also unsure about the argument of price always being proportionate to the work, but rega...
