Re: CCC has serious hardware update!

Interesting ignoring the error bars. That you are suggesting that SF NNUE scales better then SF11. As you add more cores. I never said anything other than SF-NNUE scales just fine, and I highlighted that the error bars are indeed quite large. Now, it is possible that SF-NNUE actually does scale bet...

Re: CCC has serious hardware update!

You can trash me, CCRL, and others. Because you do not like the facts. But the facts are not going away with how NNUE scales. Lets look not at my data, but CCRL blitz data. And lets see how NNUE behaves to a typical A/B engine like Ethereal. 1. Ethereal 12.75 64-bit 8CPU 3537 +20 −20 39.9% +61.4 57...

Re: Komodo Dragon is Kicking Ass in TCEC

2 loss from 4 games. Disappointing. If all the programs use their own Opening Books Komodo would have NOT lost those two games with Black since they are too close in ratings specially Stoofvless, LCZero, Stockfish NNUE, and Komodo. It would be more interesting for all programmers to provide their o...

Re: Has there ever been Stockfish clone better than dev version?

I do not think that it is a waste of time to download stockfish's clones. 1)playing strength is not the only reason to download engines. people download engines for analysis and sting solve positions that stockfish does not solve. 2)There are people who download engines to test them. If somebody tes...

Re: Draw by 3 fold repetition...

If you think that some move should be different then you should give a position and say what move stockfish played and what it should play based on your opinion. I am just asking those who know how engines are coded why a top engine like stockfish "accepts" to get into a position where the opponent...

Re: Has there ever been Stockfish clone better than dev version?

I mean significantly stronger. And the answer is NO! Houdini 6 was at same level than SF dev. Obviously one individual cannot improve SF alone? I never download these clones - waste of time. Basically you are right. Stockfish is such a well optimized engine that as more the number of modification a...

Re: Draw by 3 fold repetition...

here an example... but it's one example amongst many : https://lichess.org/Mm6BnWjv/white#92 Obviously you must be a quite weak player yourself? 1. Those are quite likely SF vs. SF games 2. White has simply no other moves and your opponent (=Black) forced the draw 3. Of course White (your SF) doesn...
