Re: New DeepMind paper

I guess another step would be to abandon the tree search completely and handle it by the neural network alone....

Re: What is the purpose of chess engines?

This is all nice but reminds me on STAR trek 5: why does god need a space ship ?! Why does chess need this enormous hardware? When I said programmers have no new ideas I did not thought about using more cores. Come on Thorsten, you are really a killjoy, we have the new neural network toys finally w...

Re: GPU rumors 2020

I meant the host-device latencies also known as kernel launch overhead, can vary between 5ms and 100ms on different systems for null-kernels, this is primary not caused by the PCIe connection, but (speculation) by the little embedded CPU controller in all GPUs that launches the kernels, I admit the...

Re: GPU rumors 2020

Yea, I guess Intel and AMD will use something new in their Exa-Flops systems, and Nvidia will coninue its partnership with IBM, not sure when and if this will drop to consumer products. I agree, real memory coherence will offer new kind of gpgpu, and wish to add that significant lower host-device l...

Nvidia plans to release its next architecture named Ampere in 2020 based on Samsungs and TSMCs 7nm process, current Turing architecture is based on TSMCs 12nm. Intel plans to release the Xe series discrete GPUs based on their own 10 nm process (comparable to TSMC 7nm?) in 2020. AMD plans to enter th...
