Re: Best for chess: i7 5820K or i7 6700k ?

Well yes, of course. That basically goes without saying. What I am thinking is that since 'real time' analysis or gameplay is not the important thing - I'm wanting an engine to analyse opening systems I play and maybe go thru my games to look for errors...say over night or over a couple of days - I'...

The thing is...all those other components in a computer do not get cut. I don't think there would be much of a $$ savings...and there are some 'black Friday'/'Cyber Monday' deals to be had.

My price range...well, would like to keep it at or under $1k.

Re: Best for chess: i7 5820K or i7 6700k ?

Forgive butting in...but within a few days I am looking to replace my old laptop - Core i7-2700QM (2.2ghz/3ghz) Sandy Bridge Not interested in overclocking. Only interested really in some engine vs engine comparisions...but mostly letting an engine analyse my giant opening system over, say overnight...

Re: Default dynamism

Whatever you do for Komodo 10 - PLEASE keep this feature! One might be good for 'ratings' against other programs, but most everyone else uses the engine for their own personal evaluations of positions for items like their own personal opening repertoire.

Re: To Larry Kaufman

Thanks for the tip.
So, I have Komodo 8 analyzing positions in Chessbase and the default seems to be a DRAWSCORE of -7. I should change it to zero...or close to it at least?

Re: To Larry Kaufman

For simple evaluation of a position (not a game play situation vs another computer) with plenty of time to evaluate, what would be the best contempt? 0?

Re: Stockfish 5

Because it is smart to let the engine speak for itself for developmental purposes. It is a good thing.

Re: I missed some great programmers!

Just curious....why do you seem compelled to post the very same topics both here and the Rybka computer chess forum? Just curious, that's all.

The little engines...so fun to watch...it's rather like watching a couple of monkeys examining a watch.

Of course, sometimes they pick up a stick and bash the watch to pieces and it gets weirdly fun then.

Re: Test position: beautiful positional sacrifice

What's so 'beautiful' about it? Black just has a bad position and it's more a matter of the lesser evil than anything else.
