Re: If there were one engine I could bring back and covert

The engines in the past are remembered because they were different. Today's engines are almost all similar. The only thing the engines today have originally is the name. That was different in old days. Junior, wchess, mchess, rebel, CSTal, the king, genius, Mephisto III, hiarcs, virtual chess, nimzo...

Re: SF 11 on Christmas?

Why ? Who cares if there is a progress of 40 ELO ? There will be no progress in computerchess by this kind of programming. Buy a computer twice as fast and use the old version. Will bring more ELO. Wouldn't the same be true for Lc0 if you could buy the next generation of video cards? No the neural ...

Re: SF 11 on Christmas?

Stockfish is not the first fast searcher I met. And it was always the same with them. It’s completely unimportant if stockfish 10 is 40 elo weaker then Stockfish 11. The people will download the latest version but they don’t really care what is different or if it is different or if it is 40 ELO stro...

By this kind of progress there is ~450 elo progress since Stockfish 2.3.1 in 7 years. http://www.cegt...

Re: benchmark new smartphones:

It also shows us that the Americans sell us lame ducks as pc. Especially intel and Microsoft sell shit. Completely redundant and resources wasting stuff. Since Apple is no real competition anymore, and there are only few competitors, there is stagnation, Same as in computerchess software development.

Re: benchmark new smartphones:

It means 5232 = 5.232.000 Nps on 8 cores mobile phone.

If your intel Cpu has less, you maybe do the bench only on 1 core.

If you use all 4 cores it should be more.
Another thing, has the U machine 4 cores or only 2 ? E.g. my i7 7500U has only 2 cores and Hyperthread.

Re: benchmark new smartphones:

Huawei mate 30. Android 10 Google apps. Kirin 990 5232 k So the Kirin scores as good as a snapdragon 855+ Mostly the cooling of the devices decides about the range of results. The cheap realme x2 pro has a lousy cooling, Asus ROG phone 2 has a marvelous cooling. In between the result of the Kirin 99...
