Deep Junior 13 Welcome Test

Post by TimoK » Wed Feb 08, 2012 1:58 pm

Hello everybody,

having fun watching Clemens' "Myth Buster" (DJ13 vs. Houdini 1.5a) I decided to let Junior play against two more strong opponents.

My conditions:

- played with Netchess on 4 Computers (maintenance station is my Atom-Netbook)
- CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 @ 3GHz
- engines use 6 Threads, 1GB Hash
- TC: 40 moves in 120min, 60min for the rest (so max game length is 6h)
- Junior uses 5-men Nalimov-TBs, Critter uses 5-men Gaviota-TBs (each running from a fast SSD)
- Noomen Opening Suite 2012 testset (30 openings), every engine has to play every opening with white and black

Deep Junior 13 vs. Critter 1.4a: http://www.team-oh.de/livegames1/
Deep Junior 13 vs. Stockfish 2.2.2: http://www.team-oh.de/livegames2/

Have fun watching the games!

Best regards
Timo

Hi Adam,

thank you for watching. Let's see if DJ13 is able to repeat its good performance played at Clemens' "Myth Buster" match.

I'm working for an IT-company and so I'm able to buy computer stuff VERY cheaply. For one of these Phenom computers I payed about 300€. Some people buy one expensive computer with multiple cores and so on for 2000€ and more. I decided to buy a few cheap ones which resulted in more testing capacity...

Best regards
Timo

Thanks, I am very curious. DJ 13 outplays quite often Houdini 1.5 in the middlegame, almost as often as the opposite, at those controls and hardware, being generally weaker tactically. Pretty weird.

I am following these two matches and the one against Houdini pretty closely! I am trying to figure out whether or not to buy the new Junior. Thanks for doing this.

Match is on hold for 15-30min. There where a few hangs that caused trouble in 2 of the games. I will restart it soon using a later version of the GUI.

Was the second game against Critter affected? I didn't follow the part where Critter was supposedly losing decisively.

Yeah, in the second game against Critter there was a break after move 39 which caused Critter to lose on time.

Now the matches are restarted with latest GUI version (F13).

Again the links to live broadcasts:
