Re: Stockfish Rockwood is a monster! :-o

Is Stockfish DD PG the most recent stable version? If not, how experimental is it? And what does the "PG" stand for? Thanks Very attractive examples! I cannot judge which SF. versions, or other engines can find one move or the other. Just from a quick try: (dual i5, 4 threads, 512 MB hash) Stockfish...

Yes, those error bars mean that Stockfish, Houdini, and Komodo are equally strong within the margin of error, right?

Re: So who is on top now? Stockfish DD, Komodo 6, or Houdini

If you're looking at contests between the top three only, I'd put Stockfish slightly ahead of Houdini, with Komodo in third spot. However, Houdini has a better record against engines outside the top three, so when all is said and done, Houdini might have a slightly better overall record than Stockf...

Re: Finally! Intel 8-core Haswell-E Slated For 3Q 2014

what do you anticipate the processor advantages will be for chess players? There will be a lot of factors so I will not attempt to say what the speed up will be but it will be a super platform to work with. Yes, 8 cores mean 16(!!) independent threads! Man, that's a lot of computational firepower. ...

So who is on top now? Stockfish DD, Komodo 6, or Houdini 4?

Has the dust settled yet on the testing of the new engines? If so, who has come out on top? Has anyone dethroned Houdini like Carlsen dethroned Anand? :-)

Thanks

Wow, very reminiscent of the famous Tal-Hect Varna Olympiad 1962 game: a series of incredible tactical blows leading to a winning rook ending.
