Re: Komodo 14.1 Release and Dragon Announcement

Komodo 14.1 Release and Dragon Announcement The improvement from Komodo 14.1 to Dragon is enormous, even larger than the gain Stockfish got from this NNUE idea. Strange. For ages the marketing line / general understanding is that SF has the better search, and Komodo the better EF. Don't believe mar...

Re: NNUE Question - King Placements

On the Lc0 discord somebody came along recently talking about GPL-defying clones and NNUE having brought a new revolution in computer Xiangqi too. I had an extremely hard time confirming it since Xiangqi literally translates to Chess so whenever I search I get a lot of links to Stockfish... But I've...

Re: How to scale stockfish NNUE score?

I am always getting excited when you're trying to implement engines for games other but chess. I'm just wondering what motivates you? I mean usually people developing one engine for years and it's difficult to master chess programming at a decent level... But you're trying many other games! This is...

Re: NNUE incredibly poor endgame performance

Simple mating is a search task. I wouldn't blame the evaluation not finding a mate. Andreas Mostly, but SF for example has some very simple heuristics to aid in finding the mate in such situations. (Like KRvK and KQvK endgames) And if you replace the whole eval with NNUE you also throw away those h...

Re: Future of computer chess: 2 top engines?

Yes, price per performance is clearly won by Stockfish NNUE I agree. On a 4 core system or a smartphone. And If this is all I had, Stockfish is the clearly winner. The question is if price and performance is not the only consideration, is Stockfish NNUE clearly the best. And that is still up for de...

Re: Future of computer chess: 2 top engines?

Komodo 11.2 is only 26 Elo points behind version 14, at CCRL 40/15. It was released on July 17, 2017. SF had been the clear number one for over a year, by the time Lc0 matured, and now it is again; this last T60 run has been rather disappointing, not to mention incredibly long. The main reason why ...

Re: Request for someone to train an NNUE for Ethereal

Eth-NNUE does seem to be a lot slower than Cfish and SF.
Only 300 knps (from start) on 1 core is really low. SFnnue always did over double.
