Re: ICGA - Rybka<>Fruit, Shredder, Komodo, Chiron

http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=72066 I think this post belongs in the main forum, certainly the ICGA part. Hmm, imo this belongs to the EO subforum. General subforum's description: Discussion of anything and everything relating to chess playing software and machines. Until they ch...

Re: Remote Engines SSH

If any of you can write a full, explicit manual for how to use engines via ssh in Win 10, it would be a great service to the chess playing community. Without revealing names I know at least a couple of GMs who would be very interested in such information. Well, I am no Windows user, so out of the g...

Re: Remote Engines SSH

Now that Windows 10 has a Built-in SSH Cleint and Server, is Putty still needed for Remote Engines or is there another way? I can of course get it to work from a command line, but would like to run it in GUI without Putty if possible. Not sure what exactly you try, but Xboard offers remote SSH engi...

Re: buying a new computer

If 4 cards don't work together, even with 8 channel memory and PCie4, you could always run 2 pairs of 2 cards with two instances of LC0 to double your throughput. I do admit it is a gamble to go after any software implementation + hardware combination that has never been tried. People reported here...

Re: trying to understand mcts

I tried to reuse the current tree for the next move, but in Zeta v097/v098 I had to copy the tree back n forth between cpu/gpu, and the memory got quickly filled, so I kept it as disabled option. But in theory it should give you an boost. You store the tree in the GPU? I am very surprised. My intui...

Re: Google's secret computer?

Yea, Exascale is underway https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exascale_computing The U.S. will join probably 2021 with Aurora (Intel) and Frontier (AMD). I guess most of them will use some kind of heterogeneous computing, a CPU/GPU mix. -- Srdja If true it looks like Moore's law is being surpassed when i...

Re: Google's secret computer?

For the fastest machines around, the top two are at Oak Ridge Lab and Lawrence Livermore Labs. The NEXT two are in China... These are the machines we know about. I'm pretty sure the NSA won't tell us where the faster machines are, and what they're already able to do. :wink: Ever wondered what a 'De...

Re: Google's secret computer?

For the fastest machines around, the top two are at Oak Ridge Lab and Lawrence Livermore Labs. The NEXT two are in China... That is when you count flops, the top two use a bunch of NVidia GV100 racks, maybe nice for a NN engine. The new Chinese Tianhe-3 will be operational next year and is going to...

Re: trying to understand mcts

One further question: do I need to recreate the tree for every move? Or can I just cut out the current branch and use that as the new base for the next move? I tried to reuse the current tree for the next move, but in Zeta v097/v098 I had to copy the tree back n forth between cpu/gpu, and the memor...
