Re: Which CPUs was used against Kramnik in 2002 ?

I actually found a Fritz CD that I got at that event. It has some signatures but not sure who. I do remember meeting with Kramnik and a few other people as the daughter of the organizer was a friend. Couldn't find any hardware information but I took a scan of the cover.

Re: Lc0 smashes Cfish-dev

Forget the attack ... since when did Lc0 start playing the endgame without trolling ???!!!! That was an efficient endgame play! Usually you had to turn red watching Lc0 play trolling moves in the endgame!

Re: Which CPUs was used against Kramnik in 2002 ?

Oh I remember that match. I actually went there to watch it live as it was only an hour flight away. I do remember at the time that this was extremely powerful hardware for that period.

Re: StockFiNN Release and Scaling

Wow !!! I just played through one of the games posted that has been played by SFNN and it is incredibly impressive! Very deep positional play! Unfortunately to get that engine you need to go to Patreon website which is NOT SAFE! I recently had over $15,000 deducted from my Master Card that started o...

Re: Test position: Lc0 vs Stockfish, TCEC 18, game 65

This just shows that computer chess has reached a level of understanding that humans simply cannot follow. I consider myself quite a strong player and when I look at games between say Magnus Carlsen and Caruana ... I pretty much understand almost every move they make and can predict the majority of...

Re: TCEC Question

I think TCEC should be looked at more for the entertainment value rather than a test to see which engine is stronger. Of course if one engine blows the other out of the water, then that can give a good idea of one engine's superiority over another. But since entertainment value is more important her...

Re: Running Leela and Fat Fritz on your notebook

Actually reading up more on the subject, it does seem it is possible to get a device that can run your GPU in an enclosure and have that connected to your laptop. That might be more cost effective as you can simply use an 2070 Super card and have 6x the performance for the same price bracket. You pr...

Re: How close to Human FIDE rating are the engine ratings?

I watched Hikaru try that with Komodo at rapid time controls and it was really no contest. I also watched MVL try that with SF I think, and again they are just not even close, especially with Lc0 now. Lc0 removes the last possible angle where a human could possibly try and remove tactics from a posi...

Re: Running Leela and Fat Fritz on your notebook

I think this is a nice idea but this just seems way under powered for Lc0. If you look at the specs of even the top end model it is at around 500 cuda cores and 64 tensor cores. That is about 8x less than you would get for an rtx 2080ti card and price is around $1000. An rtx 2070 super is half that ...
