Re: buying a new computer

Without a doubt, those prices are low. But even at double the price, they are a better buy. The 3950 is $700 so the 24 core price might not be too far off (I expect $800 or more) The current (gen 2) 32 core threadripper is $1800 for the 32 core version. So I would expect a little more for the gen3, ...

TR 3

Still largely speculation, but I guess not too far off except for price. https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-threadripper-3960x-24-core-48-thread-7nm-zen-2-cpu-confirmed/ https://videocardz.com/newz/amd-names-24-core-zen2-cpu-as-ryzen-threadripper-3960x For instance, wccftech guesses $1299 for the 32 cor...

Re: PGN standard, its improvement and standardization

For very high speed games, sending only the move is a lot better than sending the whole game state including the board. The moves aren't being sent over a 300 baud line, so "a lot better" doesn't hold water. Most testing done today is at ludicrously high speed (veiled "Spaceballs" reference). For i...

Re: PGN standard, its improvement and standardization

For very high speed games, sending only the move is a lot better than sending the whole game state including the board.

The best protocol would be a merger of the two, with redundant things thrown out.

Re: PGN standard, its improvement and standardization

... Xboard is better for gameplay and learning because you can have stateful game progress, whereas UCI is stateless ... Your thought is interesting! However, it is not clear to me. How come it (Xboard) is better than UCI on gameplay/learning? Can you explain more? Lc0 is a UCI engine and it can tr...

Re: It's here ...Honey X6

If you are using my version, I turn off every form of contempt by default. You can turn it back on with the UCI options. I turn it off because I use chess engines for analysis and rarely for game play. And when I play them, the contempt is not important anyway. And when I analyze, I want the right ...
