Re: DTM50

I have ordered 128 GB ram for 795 euros. Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2933MHz 128GB (CMK128GX4M8Z2933C16). So what kind of performance can i expect out of it, considering 128 GB ram costs half if not twice as much. Loading 6-men nalimov on 970 evo plus 2tb still impose a short delay of about 20 second...

Re: 7 Man Syzygy and SSD

The lists provided are based on human occurrences. Is it likely that the list will be much different if engine games are used as reference ?

Winning endgame for black?

Stockfish evaluates it as -1.5 - 1.75 for black. r7/p2k1pp1/2nb3p/2p5/8/8/PP3P1P/3Q1K2 w - - 0 30 I played this casual bullet game on lichess just some minutes ago and the Q vs RBN imbalance did turn out to be interesting.

Re: Why there is no interest in Computer with odds Vs Humans match?

Gary Internet: i like the Chessmaster proposal :) I'd rather choose Chessmaster 8000 from year 2000 against a GM opponent. Chessmaster 8000 was released in 2000, while 9000 was released in 2004. I remember i purched one copy of CM 9000 in Dombås in Norway on summer holiday, it has to be either 2005 ...

This is within +2.15 - 2.5 threshold. Might be feasible setup. Human black.

Re: Why there is no interest in Computer with odds Vs Humans match?

What about removing rook + two minor pieces for queen. Or remove rook and bishop for queen (no bishop pair for engine if possible). rnb1kbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RN1QKB2 w Qkq - 0 1 rn1qkb2/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNB1KBNR w KQq - 0 1 Alternatively this 1n1qk1nr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNB1...

Re: Why there is no interest in Computer with odds Vs Humans match?

Chessqueen: based on earlier matches with Nakamura, knight for rook is not enough. Exchange + move or exchange + pawn is doable today.

Komodo W, Nakamura Black.

Re: Why there is no interest in Computer with odds Vs Humans match?

The world champions pride is too high to be hurt by losing to Komodo. I don't know if team Komodo have considered a match with him. The assumption that he decline the invitation is clearly there though. Alternatively Maxime Vachier-Lagrave or Caruana is also viable alternative.

Re: DTM50

I use Nalimov 6-men on the old Samsung 970 EVO 2TB, with my own engine it is fast enough to probe at depth 1 without causing too much slowdown. A few years back I generated 6-men syzygy WDL and DTZ which took 5 days on my old 5960x, however I never came to use it. I still want to try to combine syz...

Re: DTM50

6-men nalimov on samsung 970 evo plus 2tb. For server analysis (Let's Check in Fritz or Chessbase). Read 3,000 MB/s / Write 2,800 MB. Probe speed of 3-4 is fine based on my testing so far (Houdini 6.03) I clearly notice some EGTB improvements of 970 evo plus 2tb compared to 960 evo 256 GB version. B...
