Where is a GPU mate solver? 5000 cores just for mate. Should beat SF and Chest :) .

Re: Testing Stockfish, Lc0, Banksia GUI for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iWatch)

Finally!

A useful chess app for iOS!!

One comment: the text display needs improving below the screen. The nps runs off the screen regularly and is unreadable.
Some options: use shorthand like kn/s or mn/s to reduce the number of digits.
Or let the display run onto the 3rd line

Komodo 14.1 Release and Dragon Announcement

The improvement from Komodo 14.1 to Dragon is enormous, even larger than the gain Stockfish got from
this NNUE idea.
Strange.

This is in high contrast to Intel which has the biggest and most powerful army of engineers of the entire galaxy, maybe even in the local group of galaxies!
Well it's great they are the greatest in the Galaxy because all they've given us for 5 years is Skylake, Skylake, Skylake, Skylake

Wins are more important for views. So this is expected. TCEC is not a fair competition, it is only an interesting show o...

Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX

Apparently, it will offer 8 channel memory up to 2TB. But the burning question is, will it have a boatload of PCIE-4 channels like the EPYC chips do? I’ve been meaning to ask this for ages: for chess, I’m not sure the extra RAM channels will help much. CPU Clock speed is more important. In which ca...

Re: MessChess
