Re: buying a new computer

I still did not buy a new computer.

Today I went to a shop and they told me that they can sell me only
AMD Ryzen 9 3700X and not AMD Ryzen 9 3900X so I wonder what is the speed difference between them.

How much faster is CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 Core relative to 3700?

Re: The Busted Dutch

There is one way to prove stockfish's depth 70 is not close to perfection in case it is correct. Simply beat stockfish depth 70. There's nothing special about Stockfish at Depth 70, this is now the third thread I bring this up, but what you can do is start from the very bottom and prove Stockfish D...

Re: The Busted Dutch

Because I misunderstood your claim. I thought you were claiming that, from the position we started at, you could achieve an advantageous position due to your private analysis and weaknesses in Stockfish. My claim is that if I can, then you can too. Give someone a fish and they'll be happy for a day...

Re: What kind of game is chess?

when it is behind it should learn to try to force tactically complex positions based on the same logic. behind is not only when you already expect to lose and behind can be also when the expected result is 30% or 40%.

Re: What kind of game is chess?

LC0 is weak at tactics. But it knows that, and has learned it should better avoid tactically complex positions. Conventional engines are good at tactics. But they are not aware of that. Their evaluation is just as happy in tactically quiet positions as in tactically complex ones. They never learned...

Re: Draws are getting cheaper, are 15W enough?

I could find the following tournament that had 100% draws except one losing player but it is not good enough because this tournament has also less than 100 games. https://www.iccf.com/event?id=66679 I do not see so far one world championship in correspondence chess with at least 99% draws The follow...

Re: Draws are getting cheaper, are 15W enough?

The draw rate keeps rising, and it's been years since anybody at the top even lost a game. When I started playing Freestyle,12 years ago, this was the picture: https://i.postimg.cc/pLFRNtR9/Screen-Shot-09-16-19-at-10-47-AM.png Nothing radically different, from what we can see in correspondence ches...
