Re: Leela vs Allie

... I can tell for the draw rate this test is meaningless. Way to low. What were the settings for Lc0, and Allie? Before you make a comment read the posts out and you can find the parameters. These short time tests do not replace the events of TCEC, obviously. However the TCEC/CCC events are not ap...

Re: Leela vs Allie

That is why in TCEC finals, Stockfish can win Allie. If Leela were in her place, there would be practically no chance for Stockfish. Allie is now just lucky in the tournament, it is trite worse at a distance in all tests. I hope Leela will be in the finals (with Stockfish, or with Allie). P. S. Tha...

Re: Is e4 significantly better than d4?

It is ridiculous to try and express an objective analysis on what move is better e4 or d4, or any other starting move for white. The understanding in chess is just to deep to give such answers. Even if we pretend that today's chess engines are almost the ultimate in chess understanding which they ar...

Re: Allie is very attractive

Have Allie 0.5-dev installed. I notice that Allie uses only one CPU core. Is that normal? Allie is very attractive. A few weeks ago I played with the MZfish on the PlayChess server against Allie. Both engines had to continue after a few moves without book moves. Allie played the MZfish (Stockfish) ...

Re: Threadripper Custom Build - feedback wanted

Lc0 uses tablebases just fine. Interesting. How does the neural net factor into the tablebase? Or is it only the (relatively slow) MCTS portion that uses tablebases? LC0 only searches in the ~100,000 nodes/second speed. So they won't be probing the endgame table as much as other engines (which are ...

Re: Threadripper Custom Build - feedback wanted

It sounds like a lot of fun. What are you going to do with it? With an Alpha Beta engine there are questions about its ability to use 32 cores. Do NNs use 32 cores? What about getting a 16 core using Hyper threading and save some money. Threadrippers come with 64x PCIe lanes, so you can run 4x GPUs...

Re: Never thought that Alliestein was in the same level with LCZero and Stockfish !

Even more shocking are the two crashes of Stockfish due to a faulty file. One more crash and it's out. The participant authors took a vote on whether or not the SF people should be allowed to replace that file. but because one voted no, it won't happen. That is ridiculous. Tcec is a computer chess ...
