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...

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...

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

If you agree with the above, then you need to have something in place to make sure engines are "different". It's not as big a deal when you just have a couple duplicates like with Lc0 and DeusX, and I don't have an issue with different groups that are trying different approaches, but when you can t...

Re: Huawei Launches The World’s Most Powerful Artificial Intelligence Processor

It aims at Nvidia's V100, which is about 10K $, so probably nothing for LC0 fans.

The RTX 2080 TI has ~100 TOPs FP16 for ~1.2K $, and it is still TSMC 12 nm, so
we can expect some boost with the next 7nm architecture in 2020 or so, if Nvidia
continues with RTX + TensorCores.

Yes, it is. Up to now no bugs reported or observed.

Ups, did the clone wars started again? :) Some people should take some time to think about what the GPL philosophy stands for, what was the intention of an programmer or an community if they put their stuff under GPL, and - respect that. -- Srdja When you put your software under the GPL you are gra...
