Re: chessbase houdini is out but...

not entirely rigth, but close. the 3 tops are almost on par, though SF is still a bit ahead. I would have written one of the 3 strongest engines in the world, which certainly would be more correct. It's not just a little bit ahead. Stockfish is at least 30 ELO stronger. And those green patches just...

Re: fortress_draw_rule

btw., do you know that I am able to create a suit of 50 opening lines, that could be used in TCEC, knowing the style of the 2 finalists, a suit that will carry a very small bias with it, or no bias at all, highest scores in the range of less than 40cps for both engines, that will produce, if not 10...

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

I really don't see how you got those Elo numbers, but they in any way don't seam right. ... Regarding dual e5-2670, it has 140% more nps than i7-6700 which considering less efficiency on 16 cores vs. 4 cores gives around 65% more strength which further reflects into around 50Elo at 1m, 40Elo at 5m ...

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

http://pricewatch.com/computer_systems_with_os/ Not a single Xeon on the list :). Currently the best buy is dual CPU E5-2670. For up to 600$ full system half the strength (i.e. same as single E5-2699v4) of TCEC machine (and I'm not talking nps coz that's meaningless, but real strength Elo-wise). ht...

Re: The TCEC...

Events as the TCEC should instead be an event for "sports", fun and entertainment, in fact the fans follow them for these reasons. To measure the engine's power relations there are the various rankings - far more reliable, statistically - of the CCRL, the IPON and CEGT. The organizers of the TCEC h...

You must have issues reading man. I predicted, and said many times that Stockfish would win by a significant margin in the TCEC Superfinal. How is my prediction incorrect? Give me a break, and get lost. Learn to read what I write.

Re: Stockfish is already TCEC season 9 superfinal winner..

.. with 99% certainty. Why? In seasons 4-8 superfinal the leader after 50% mark won always! Even with total 48 games only. Who needs 2000 games with VLTC? If you see ten heads in a row in a coin toss sequence, it does not change the probability of the 11th flip. Since the first Houdini win, the eng...

Re: Komodo 10.2 released.

We have released komodo 10.2 at komodochess.com. We estimate based on our testing that it is about 22 elo stronger than komodo 10.1 and about 30 elo stronger than komodo 10 at three minutes plus one second increment, on one or many threads. This is the largest elo gain we have had between versions ...

Re: TCEC 2016 - Stockfish vs. Houdini

Hello, It appears SF8 is going to destroy H5. After nine completed games, the score is already 6 to 3 :shock: Cordially, Sean :) Take a look boys: http://www.husvankempen.de/nunn/40_40%20Rating%20List/40_40%20All%20Versions/2.html Clearly Stockfish is better than all engines.
