Re: SPCC: Testrun of Allie 0.5 LS11.1 finished

My personal testing of Fat Fritz says it does gain at longer time controls against SF compared to shorter time controls. If you do test it, try both if you can. I would be quite curious to see this. I will definitly not test FatFritz with other conditions. Why should I? My tests show, that lc0 does...

Re: SPCC: Testrun of Allie 0.5 LS11.1 finished

I wonder what the difference between Allie and Allie Stein is. I still cant believe that Stockfish beat a NN engine in the TCEC Championship. ( I am glad it did.) Perhaps LCO was trained against SF and Allie Stein wasn't. Lc0 was trained against itself, but was tuned against SF, meaning its setting...

BTW, I saw that you run your tests on a laptop. Even the GPU games. You know that after some time it...

Leela has great results e.g. 94.5 − 65.5 vs Stockfish 10! Not enough?
No, a 2080 with fp16 enabled should beat 4-core SF10 by more than that IMHO.

Hi Albert,

aside from the number of cores/threads, ponder off, hash size and generic opening books, we test engines with their default settings.

Graham.
ok cool. I guess I was just expecting a much stronger performance by Leela on a 2080.

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (19th October 2019)

I'm a bit intrigued by the subpar results of the NNs on the 2080 in the 40/4 lists. I know that Leela would absolutely crush the field of 4-core and 8-core participants on a full 2080, so I am assuming this is the result of some calibration process to cripple it in favor of balance. Could you share ...

Re: buying a new computer

Watch for Black Friday prices on the second gen chips too. Last November I picked up a brand new 16-core first gen TR (1950x) for $405 from Newegg. how much slower than a second gen TR? Not twice as slow. When I bought it, the new 2950x was retailing for $700, boasting speed improvements of 0.2GHz....

Re: did magnus carlsen play so poorly?

https://company.playmagnus.com/play-magnus It seems that magnus at age 5 is simply the random mover and I believe that magnus carlsen even at age 5 played better than it. I also tried the application at older age and I believe magnus was stronger than the playing strength they give him also at late...
