Re: Fat Fritz 2

It is not 'just a NNUE player'. But NNUE player is definitely one of its functions. Which does not use the built-in HCE. FF2 only uses SF in its capacity of NNUE player; it doesn't use the HCE. It does use HCE.... Fat Fritz 2 is literally Stockfish, including the hybrid eval. So it literally does u...

Re: Paradigm shift

It sounds to me like we could be back to the problem of optimizing an engine that is stuck in a local optima, instead of looking for radical alternatives that could bring real paradigm shift like A0's again. That was the real innovation that reduced any game playing to a button click solution of tr...

Re: Paradigm shift

Now we are entering an era where search is hardly an issue; everyone again does this in a very similar way, which is very hard, if not impossible to improve on. If search is hardly an issue, how come Stockfish is leaps and bounds beyond any other (AB) chess engine? Even when you give those other ch...

Re: Fat Fritz 2

Re: Does anyone here have a Ryzen 5000 CPU?

That's why you should use a good thermal pad for laptops. That's also bad because there are no good thermal pads in terms of heat transfer. Their only advantage is that they are faster and easier to mount, i.e. a cost reduction. The usual solution against the pump-out-effect is a thermal paste that...

Re: Does anyone here have a Ryzen 5000 CPU?

I got: 1227 (Single-Core Score) 6256 (Multi-Core Score) That's pretty OK for a 4800U when I browser Geekbench for that. My 4700U is expectionally high. It also matters a lot how the cooling system is designed. However, I strongly disadvise against re-pasting the laptop just like that. For one, it's...

Re: Fat Fritz 2

as long as I provide the source code, great... doesn’t make their use of GPL’d software somehow illegal. But they're not. (As already explained several times above) I’ve checked out the code. Check. I’ve built a binary. Check. I’ve run a net in it. Check. What don’t you understand? Does it have ide...

Re: Stockfish LC0: 1-0 1-0 1-0 1-0 1-0 in TCEC

Can Leela run on a single GPU? Would a system that runs Stockfish NNUE using a single CPU (multiple cores of course in today's world) with no dedicated GPU cost less than a system built for running Leela (assuming it is possible to have Leela run on a single CPU and a single GPU)? I am ignorant of ...
