Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

So far, this is the highest ranked game using that opening that I have found: [Event "Napoleon Trophy Blitz"] [Site "La Roche-sur-Yon FRA"] [Date "2019.02.16"] [Round "6"] [White "Van Foreest, Jorden"] [Black "Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime"] [Result "0-1"] [WhiteElo "2618"] [BlackElo "2780"] [ECO "C20"] ...

Re: ChessBase's prophecy of 2004 fulfilled in 2019

I myself was surprised, but Texel 1.07 at 4000 nodes/ move I speculated pretty firmly to be in 2000-2100 FIDE Elo range at 45min + 15s. Can you beat or draw consistently Texel at 4000 nodes/move at this TC? If not, then the result might be an artifact due to Texel's inability to capitalize on tacti...

Re: ChessBase's prophecy of 2004 fulfilled in 2019

Yes, 2000 FIDE Elo for NN11248 might be reasonable, my estimation for Texel is 2100 +/- 100. I vaguely knew that 1xxxx nets were stronger than 3xxxx nets and early 4xxxx nets with a single node (no search), but I didn't know that late 4xxxx nets became the strongest at 1 node too. Anyway, it seemed...

Re: The Mac Pro is back - finally

Hmm, Apple ships them with an 2*2 AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPU option, up to 16384 cores, 128 GB HBM, 56.4 TFLOPs fp32, 112.8 TFLOPs fp16 in sum, so the new Mac Pro competes with Nvidia's DGX-1 Station with 4 Voltas, and these are pricey, 37K to 52K Euros... so the question is, which dude will tune L...

The new zen machines will have PCIe 4 communication.
July 7th, I think, for up to 16 cores. A bit more wait for something beefy.
We know that there will be a new threadripper, but timing for that one is shrouded in mystery
7/7 only Ryzen's. 3rd gen Zen's not before Q1 2020.

8 PCIe slots, 4 of them double wide, 64 PCIe lanes, 1.4 KW power supply, just need to figure out how to install Ubuntu on it :)

Lol, what a joke, a 15k+ desktop based on 8180 Platinum weaker than under 5k 2990x Zen based machine.

Re: LC0 for iPad?

First, you can run one of the smaller nets using blas. Second, Apple has nn capable hardware in its phones/iPads. https://www.apple.com/in/iphone-xs/a12-bionic/ Yeah, right, as if someone is gonna spend hundreds of hours translating NN interface to proprietary Apple hardware without any real suppor...

Re: Dual RTX 2060 for Leela

What is a node in lc0? This is not a stupid question, btw. Could be every node in the tree. Could be every node in the tree plus every node outside the tree. If it’s a tree node, does it count 1 for every time the search goes through, or just the once when it is visited the first time? Could be the...

Re: Xilinx UltraScale Questions

It would be interesting to know how powerful a TPU one could make from these things, for simulating neural nets. Not enough. I did an analysis at one point after the first gen TPU appeared and you could get maybe half TOPS of the first get TPU (like around 50) with the largest Virtex Ultrascale+ ch...
