Hi Srdja,

I would like to know a little more about your engine. Some time ago I corresonded to a company who was very interested in gpu's and chess and at that time was willing to allow the use of some high end equipment all using gpus. Back then their interest was to generate 7 piece egtb's. If I understand more of what you are doing I can always touch base with them and see if their position is still available.

BTW do you or are you interested in coding for an egtb generator? Just curious.

Hi Les,
very interesting.....i plan nothing with egtb, focus is on a chess engine, but maybe one day my project will be released as open source so somone else could lend some ideas for egtb.

I would like to know a little more about your engine.
It is more a prototype than a real engine.
It uses the Host-CPU to calculate the first search depth, from then on everything is computed on the GPU. Code is written in OpenCL so Nvidia and AMD and .... will work.

Maybe you could ask the company if it is interested to act as a sponsor?
