can we estimate strength of an engine given time handicap?

Hi folks, I have heard that each time you double processing speed of computer, the engine gets 50 pnts elo approximately. can this idea be used to estimate the playing level of an engine handicapped on time? E.g., lets say an engine plays at 3000 level when given 3 hours on computer with hardware X....

a request for help. positional sacrifice test set

Hi folks, It would be nice to put together a positional sacrifice test set. The sacrifice should not lead to an immiediate gain of material (as you see in the benko gambit). It should lead to a positional compensation of some sort. the typical kinds of sacrifices I am thinking of is, for example, wh...

strelka in strategic opening test

the openings are taken from " a strategic opening repertoire " by donaldson. The first results are from the the various closed sicilian reversed variations in the book. Strelka is doing exceptionally well so far. It looks like it belongs in the same group as toga, shredder, glauring and naum. Engine...

USB chess: why can't this technology replace dgt board

DGT boards are just too expensive. Why can't something like this replace the dgt board. http://usb.brando.com.hk/prod_detail.php?prod_id=00271 It looks like this USB interface comes with its own crappy chess software. It all costs only about 45 us. Why can't they design just the board part of it to ...
