Next engine becoming the number 3 ?

Post by JJJ » Tue Apr 07, 2015 7:09 pm

Houdini won't probably be updated anymore. So it's a matter of time before it get crushed by another engine than Komodo or Stockfish. But by who and when if you have to guess ?

It's taking time to see it beaten by another one... I don't know if Gull or Fire will be update soon or anymore , so maybe it has to be equinox ?

( Sorry If I didn't write well this message in english, I m french :) ).

It's hard to guess....

Gull would be an excellent pretender but it's development is postponed for now....

Fire is a great piece of software but even as such it has a long way to go and knock off Houdini to claim the third place....

Equinox would be an option but in my private rating list it's around 75 Elo weaker than Houdini 4....

So who knows :!: :?:

My engine was quite strong till I added knowledge to it.

Both Gull and Fire are the only two engines that come within 60 ELO approximately of Houdini 4, so unless something new comes around the corner or some serious ELO increases for other engines, they are the two most likely to take third spot. Of course Gull development is laying in ruins of dormancy now; hence the only real legitimate engine looks like Fire. I personally would like to see Deep HIARCS 15 get that top-three spot. But it still has a way to go - although I would bet that it will reach 3100+.

I have been enjoying Fire 4. How do you think it's evaluation for analysis of human games stacks up with the "Big 3"?
