Re: hacker scum and cyber security (even in chess)

hi Folkert van H, nope Linux itself doesn't make hacking easier, but all the tools on this Kali distrib do make it easier... : https://itsfoss.com/best-kali-linux-tools/ and like i said, lots of youtube vids eg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1bMSPje6pw As for my connection, i'm simply connected v...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

That depends on which 4000U series CPU you take into comparison. 4900U will almost certainly blow M1 out of the water. I don't think so, even if the 4900U were not made of pure unobtanium. Geekbench 5 lists the M1 around 7500 in multicore. The fastest 4800U samples are around 7700 (generally rather...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

I would be surprised if single core performance on SF-NNUE would be more than 1.2Mnps from a starting position. Overall for 8 cores 8Mnps at best Only four out of the eight M1 cores are for heavy calculations. The remaining four cores are small ones for saving battery in near-idle. The full perform...

Re: M1 Apple Silicon for Chess?

As far as I have observed chess engine speeds for 2 decades I noticed that it benefits a lot from larger L1 cache size. For the record, our mainstream x86 CPUs have 32kb/32kb L1 cache while this new apple M1 has gigantic 192kb/128kb! Zen3 has for example 64kiB per core, but that's irrelevant since ...

Re: hacker scum and cyber security (even in chess)

How they dunnit ? Well i suppose they found out my IP, and then the rest was probably reasonably simple. (during those times, youtube vids starting to appear how to hack a system, (especially older windows as 7/8) when you know the IP, from a special linux CD made for hacking/cybersecurity (at that...

Re: Leela doing well in chess 960 in TCEC!

Comparing Leela against two others NN that are not trained on FRC either, and Komodo that's not tuned on FRC and is much weaker in standard chess, doesn't show that it doesn't lose elo in FRC. In FRC semi-league 2, Leela drew all 6 games against Ethereal, and without putting it in a difficult posit...

Re: Dragon versus Nakamura

Nakamura psyched himself out. I don't think he realized he was playing the MCTS version. I mentioned we used MCTS mode in the chess.com chat along the side of the game board. He speculated there was a more aggressive setting. The only change was MCTS mode. In both regular and MCTS mode we used a lo...

Re: GPU rumors 2020

... Beast without framework is a joke. AMD's pathetic attempts to go into ML market are pretty pointless. Well good luck to them with OpenCl. Btw. in 7nm having best performance in BFLOAT16 of 0.5TOPS/W is pathetic. This coming from someone actually designing HPC AI hardware. Nvidia invested early ...

Nakamura's position still drawn but it looks like he will blunder and lose the 4th game, leading to 2.5-1.5 for Dragon.
It's 100% lost
When I posted it was drawn. :wink:
When he missed Nd7 he basically lost.
