Re: Are kiudee parameters the best?

[/quote] The A/B search is more intuitive... [/quote] That is why I still think the perfect solution is an engine that combines A/B with NN. I know that nobody yet is looking at that, but it might make for an interesting fork for SF if implemented correctly. Of course I am following the impressive p...

Re: Are kiudee parameters the best?

Wouldn't it be possible to have an automated system check that looks at your computer hardware and then follow a set table to automatically tune your Lc0 to the best possible settings? I mean it should be easy enough to poll the computer for number of available cores and frequency and then also che...

Re: 237 Mn/s for Stockfish on an 2xEPYC 7742

You'll be surprised just how strong SF is, even at low node counts.

This is especially true with the latest version of SF. I think SF has gained incredible strength at low nodes thanks to tuning against Lc0!

Re: Drawn ending, Stockfish evaluates -+ ?

Only way for black to break through is to sac his bishop for a pawn, but that seems easy enough to prevent … so obviously a draw.

Re: New DeepMind paper

This is quite interesting … there might be some surprises yet! Maybe chess DOES follow a statistical path but it just needs enough data to set that path into stone. More realistically though, I think that there will always be some permutations when statistics fall and some tactics will be missed … t...

Re: Carlsen is back with all his Opening knowledge....

Most likely he sees this as his next challenge as he pretty much has controlled all other forms of chess (Classical, Rapid, Blitz, Bullet). I wouldn't consider FRC "a form of chess". Yes ... maybe a more accurate description would a "chess variant". The main difference I see where Chess 960 is not ...

Re: Carlsen is back with all his Opening knowledge....

I think the score has nothing to do with how superior So was to Carlsen. Carlsen missed a winning position in the first game and then lost a drawn endgame ... this sort of made him over extend on the other games. My guess that this was just a bad day in the office and probably on a different day res...

Re: buying a new computer

Wow … new generation 64 core CPU at less than $1800 … that is getting very interesting. Should be able to put together a very nice system for less than $3500. Many new technologies coming on that are making me look towards upgrading my 8 core CPU system. New version of USB, faster memory … faster SS...
