Re: LCZero update

Is it correct to conclude that a 6-block network will reach its ceiling quite soon since there is already a decreased rate of progression in ELO and more chances that a new generation would perform worse(or in the error bars, whichever sounds better)? Then can we move on to discover the relationship...

Re: comparing minimax and averaging MCTS with alphabeta roll

I honestly think that it is just not ideal to use MCTS architecture in chess. The results that manifested otherwise does not essentially prove MCTS is better suited for chess but actually a possible indication that move ordering is more important than PV depth. So would you like to try something lik...

Re: LCZero update

Running one instance of client on a 1080TI utilizes 100% CPU in one thread and 55% GPU, running two gets about 85% GPU usage. Usually it takes about a minute or less to finish a game. So it would be like 2000 games a day tops. On the other hand, unfortunately there seems to be no working AMD OpenCL ...

Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

Everything is fine. I was just slightly worried switching back and forth 97-98% is inferior for performance. He said other tasks make claim on memory get higher priority than syzygy, so OS has to toss out that space for that particular task. If i'm not mistaken. Correct, anything that actually clai...

Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

Blueprint concept, internal cache depends on total system ram. 32 GB system can afford to give syzygy cache more portion. Actually what happens as it is though, is that system will give Syzygy as much as it can until something else is claiming that cache memory. To prove this you can do an "echo *....

Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

In the cases where you don't think the OS can do a better job managing caches, you claim a piece of memory and maintain it on your own by implementing something like TB cache. Then to the OS's view it is just a piece of memory and it will still do file caching when it thinks it is necessary. You wil...

Re: LCZero update

Seems you didn't quite understand what I wrote. I said, you can run games but not train the network without TensorFlow. I thought you'd understand such basic stuff as that running training games is not the same as training the network. I can see why we shouldn't say a complete sentence to explain c...

Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

The 6v1 ones are indeed meaningless in sense of improving engine strength, but they are important in the way that they require the generator to handle larger index space and for various verifications. I also built 6v1 up to 2 pawns just to test the pawn code. Only if these files are correct can I th...

Re: LCZero update

Is a GeForce 10, 1060 any good for training? I have one of those. I also have an older Quadro 5000 but it's not as powerful. It doesn't have to be powerful, currently it just runs on the previously created network and produce game results, upload them and then they run the training based on everyon...
