Re: w49921 net

Some people say it’s 10-20 elo weaker than 42850, some say it’s about even. I can find tests in the leela chess discord on both sides of this issue. In most cases, various late t40 nets and t40 derived nets are within a few points of each other. It is a really big problem with Lc0 ratings list test...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (23rd November 2019)

Anyone who conscientiously tests Lc0 against AB Engines knows, there is a Lc0 Ratio for reliable results. The Leela ratio is very useful for comparing two machines - Machine A with GPU A and CPU A vs machine B with GPU B and CPU B. If the Leela ratio on machine A is 1.0 and on machine B it is 2.5, ...

Re: Fritz 17

My computer is 9 years old yet I don't see the need for anything faster, Yes, my newest PC is an AMD FX8350 and unbelievably that was released 7 years ago. I have no need whatsoever to replace it, it does everything I need. Yes I've added an SSD which made a huge difference, other than that a coupl...

Re: There are NOT any Books on FRC Opening.............

An opening book for chess960 is the antithesis of everything chess960 is about. I hope never to see one.

Re: Finally TCEC is matching FRChess960 Engines......

Alliestein is doing very good without having any NET training of the 960 FRC positions as far as I know and against the all mighty Stockfish the King of FRC Chess960 :roll: https://tcec-chess.com/ I think it might be up to 100 Elo weaker at FRC without having the special training and net. But at le...

Most of the important programs are missing such as Cfish, CorChess, Brainfish, the newest asmfishCP and so on.

But I wonder why Alliestein is NOT playing ? https://tcec-chess.com/
Yes - that is a bad omission. Yes it plays up to 100 Elo weaker I'd estimate through not being trained on chess960 games, but still it was worth including.

Re: Fritz 17

Also, it could be worth noting that Ginkgo had been listed on CCRl 40/40 as a private engine, but then it was pulled from the list just around the same time as the Fritz 17 discussion first sprang up. :) I don't know why that was, I wouldn't read anything into it. Graham asked for it to be removed ...
