Re: Fritz 17

He has an old GTX 1660, which will have only have cudnn as backend option,not cuddn-fp-16, unless of course he has the new GTX1660 Super,whi...

Re: Fritz 17

Okay, here's another one . Same argument. I don't really understand what you are saying. You may notice by examination that each page in the preview says, "Copyrighted material". Individual numbers are not copyrightable for obvious reasons. But a book of numbers is copyrightable. Now, mathematics i...

Re: Fritz 17

I don't really understand what you are saying. You may notice by examination that each page in the preview says, "Copyrighted material". So if Fat Fritz's weights were printed in a book and it said "Copyrighted material" then it wouldn't be fine to distribute them? The claim is that if distributing...
