I'm thinking about getting rid of thermal config files, but is it worth "just" for chess? :lol:
No. On the mobile platform, battery consistency is by far much more important than raw calculation speed.

A likely explanation is that the numbers for the older Samung device is wrong.

Re: Best tablebase algorithms for 6-men server?

The server is for statistical research in chess. Do I need a license? Where to ask for a license?

Re: Best tablebase algorithms for 6-men server?

I understand Gaviota allows only up to 5-men DTM, but I want 6-men. If I can't find a reliable tablebase technology, I may also run a chess engine like how you describe in the link. I've started a thread on asmfish github page on possible gaviota egtb implementation, so evaluation show mate in x ins...

Can we do 6-men DTM there? ~1000GB shouldn't be a problem for a server. I want to setup a 6-men server for tablebase queries. T...

Best tablebase algorithms for 6-men server?

I want to setup a 6-men server for tablebase queries. This has nothing to do with chess engine, it's just be a server. I want to get WDL and distance-to-mate information for each position I query. What's the best tablebase scheme? I believe https://syzygy-tables.info uses the Gaviota for DTM. Do we ...
