Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

If we accept double speed ~60 elo. To close the 700 elo difference we need 2^12=1024 time odd is this true for all engines (both top-end and old-weak)? same for STC vs LTC? I doubt, going from 3400 to 3460 is more costly than going from 2700 to 2760 in terms of Time/CPU Anyway, I wrote >100 as a lo...

Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

You got it all wrong Shredder 8 on my system is much much stronger than Komodo 13 on my Samsung Galaxy S8+, Check how deep my Dell All in One Computer can calculate, whereas Komodo does NOT even calculate half af much on my Android. in CCRL 40/15 Shredder 9 = 2726 elo, Komodo 13 = 3423 elo about 70...

Or play 40'+10" Shredder vs 10"+1" Komodo

Re: Amazing tactic played by a middle school boy!

Bxe6 seems clearly best: Among couple of winning moves - it's a matter of horizon effect, in some PV fail-high can happer a bit earlier, in some PV a bit later, so root node is unstable. After deepening both lines (~D=40 per move) to move #18 we get similar positions with BvsP and D=40 analysis for...

Re: Are engines really better in analysis with MV=2 !?

Task solving and elo play strength contradict each other. Tasks - are specially selected positions (1 in a billion) where traditional human or alpha-beta approach "stuck", that's why they are considered interesting. If you decrease alpha-beta pruning at this specific positions - you can get solution...

Re: How often do engines clear their hash memory

Stockfish does not clear its hash between moves. And it would be foolish to do so. In fact, "clear hash" only works if you klick on to the "Newgame" button of a chess GUI. This strange behavior may modifies the result of an automated engine-engine competition based on consecutive games. To clear ha...
