Re: What engine breaks even with GMs in blitz?

In blitz (let's say 3' + 2" or as close to this as possible), the top engines today are far beyond human level. But how far down the list do we have to go to find engines (and specified hardware) that score evenly against GMs, preferably ones with known identities and ratings? I'm sure there is ple...

Re: GTX 1050 TI and Fritz 16

I add that all these problems started when I installed a new nvidia video card instead of an old amd, in fact when I tried to install Fritz 16 again, during the installation asked me to update "NVIDIA Container", nvcontainer.exe, NVIDIA Share I repeat that on the same PC the previous versions of fr...

Re: Lc0 51010

LC0 engine does have a search, but we are discussing here the outputs of the neural network itself without search (you can get LC0 to do this with the command nodes=0). Some people are claiming that the network output without search is 2400 or whatever, or they know somebody who knows somebody who ...

Re: Elo World, a framework forbenchmarking weak chess engines

Reading this paper, my feeling goes like: He is joking, no he is serious, haha april fool joking, that is actually a good point, this is crap ... I can't decide. Yeah, I feel the same, but AFTER reading your post. I was thinking that I just cannot collect myself to read this thing :lol:. It is a jo...

Re: Lc0 51010

Excuse me for a moment, but where does one set nodes or depth for Leela? I'm looking at the uci options in the GUI, but I must be missing something. Thanks in advance! It is something that must be set in the time control or match settings. The Fritz GUI does not support this, but Arena and Cute Che...

Re: Lc0 51010

btw, I read a couple of days ago, you wrote LCZero, set to nodes=0, policy move, would win against you. I very much doubt it. Policy errors. Statistically very good, but quite capable of telling you a cat is a panda with 99% certainty every so often. By sheer coincidence, I was speaking to a very s...

Re: Lc0 51010

When SF self plays, it’s not that much different from playing any good AB program, elo-wise. No reason for self-play to be wildly off, other than the usual inflation effects. But every reason for NN-NN self play to not be in accord with the AB world . You have to adjust, everything you know about c...

Re: Lc0 51010

NN 51010 has had 559441 games. The NN size is smaller (10x128) than the A0 one and 41xxx NNs (20x256), but the training param is visits=10000 (visits=800 for 41xxx). I'll let others say what 2080 time that works out to. I will try to estimate (writing on the phone, I am on a vacation :) ). About 0....

Re: Lc0 51010

One question: does anyone know roughly how many 2080s would be needed to duplicate the training that this 51xxx series has averaged so far? It doesn't mean much to say that it has trained for two days without stating what the average resources used for the training were. I imagine that they were ju...
