Re: Vajolet2 2.8 release

For info, the standard x64 exe does not work on a Phenom II X6, which does have popcount support but not full SSE4.2 support. The "old" exe has to be used on that machine which is presumably slower. I suspect this may be a compilation issue - for example the Stockfish "modern" exe works on this mach...

I've said it before, I'll say it again- as soon as the major engines support FRC, the CCC will play a 960 event.

*Glares at Lc0*
Allie plays FRC.

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

By the way, it was just stated by the president of FIDE that they are working on a FIDE rating system for frc and that it should be ready in months, not years. This is huge. Fantastic, I've long been a fan of FRC. For computer chess at least, I've always thought opening books have destroyed chess. ...

Re: Vote for Fritz 17 Replacement

Ethereal, Laser and Xiphos are open source, so I don't think it will be those. (Yes I know Fat Fritz is based on opensource Lc0 but for the A/B engine I don't think they will go that route). I can't see it being Fire, so that just leaves Ginkgo of that lot. Of course it may be something else not on ...

The last tournament took a bit long (caused by the 5.2 and the endless endgames of LC0), the next tournament will be 5.1 again.
Yes sorry about that, I won't run Lc0 again. Can you please set up a new account for EtherealRB and PM me the password, and I'll use that next time.

Albert - he says on his site that he uses MSI AfterBurner to reduce the GPU speed as much as possible. So that will reduce the heat generated. It is also possible to cool laptops with special laptop cooling pads as you will know. I'm sure he knows what he is doing.

Re: Fritz 17

You ever heard of an NDA? or about how about "loose lips sink ships" , if one tells everyone privileged information - it is no longer privileged and it's likely that would it be the last time one is told privileged information - did you ever work for a big company ? Well, by saying it isn't an upda...

Re: Problem report Chessbase with SF

Does your CPU support BMI2 instructions ? Try the "modern" exe which has lower requirements, or indeed the standard one.
