Are you sure that the new Stockfish is using all cores of your computer? 30 points is a lot, but could be expained when it is using only one core and the older Stockfish more. Number of threads now has to be set to the number of cores you want it to use, and the settings have to be stored in some way. How depends on the GUI you are using.

Regards, Eelco
Using SF 4-32bit. on dual core computer. This version is 30 elo stronger, after 500 games (1min.10 secords TC) then SF DD. Same books and same conditions as other engines in this match. Maybe to few games.
My foul up. I downloaded SF DD again and set it up again with SFDD vs. SF 4. Now SF DD is 15 elo stronger than SF 4 after 50 quick 1 min. games. Sorry bout that.

So you're saying Stockfish has gained around 30(!) rating points between the time DD came out and now, which is only a couple of weeks?
Stockfish DD was released on Nov 29, 2013. That's about 8 weeks ago :D
Right you are.

I misread the SF version mentioned as 140114.
This is why I wrote in 6-8 weeks.

How much stronger is this than DD? And where and how can I find out for myself?

Thanks
A recent test shows that the latest (14012918) dev version is now 36.66 +-2 points ahead of DD.

Great! 18 points per month.
Then we could expect a newer release in March!
