Re: Komodo MP - progress?

Does anyone know how this is going and likely release date? Thanks. No release date. Komodo is now 30 ELO stronger and I am working on an MP version right now. Interesting... If that's true then on 1 CPU Komodo is now about as strong as Houdini. At blitz we still are a bit behind Houdini, but at 40...

Re: Two years without Shredder

Of course every generalization has its exceptions. Picasso painted to the day of his death and Haydn composed marvelous music when well into old age, BUT the normal thing is you lose some stamina around 50 or 60 or even before if luck is not with you, money is also absent and you have to eat the sa...

Re: Computer chess scene: a heap of ruins

Hi there, wow, what I read here give me a lot of power back. Very interesting discussion. I have enough from group A (clone finders) and group B (critical engines which stands each time again and again in the middle of all these discussions). So far I am not really sure what I should do now. Many p...

Re: Two years without Shredder

We have seen this before. Programmers, as anybody else, reach a limit of his interest and/or capability to stay in the top. Shredder since long time was not anymore the top one. That is morally destructive. Also it could happens, like I hope, that Stephan is engaged in a massive effort to recover h...

PS: Could'nt resist, sorry :-)
Your description on the rating list says "32b". Does this imply that there will be a separate 64 bit version?

Re: Komodo MP ?

September is no longer possible, but the odds are in favor of an October release. Mostly the delay is due to further improvement in the SP program. We are quite close to Houdini now in longer time controls, though not yet in blitz.

Re: Komodo 3.0 first impressions! - A novelty making machine

If you are comparing search speed of Komodo to MP versions of other programs, then yes, MP will fix the problem. If you are comparing search speed of Komodo to SP versions of other programs, then no, MP will just do the same for us in terms of search speed as it does for them. We do however seem to ...

Re: Komodo 3.0 first impressions!

I don't think Komodo is weak in search speed / tactics! But may be it needs some more endgame knowledge. In match against Rybka often Rybka evaluates position as won, when Komodo is still at -1 or -2. Two examples: [D]4B3/4n3/8/8/4K2P/2k3P1/4r3/8 w - - 0 56 Rybka -4,99 Komodo -1,44 [D]5r2/8/Pp6/3K2...

Re: Komodo 3.0 first impressions!

[quote="M ANSARIHi Larry. I think you have done a great job with the static evaluation of Komodo. I do hope that there will be a quick solution to improving the relative weakness in search speed. I guess by implementing MP that automatically improves speed. When that happens Komodo will be a real PI...
