The SSDF is now using AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, which is an 8-core processor at 3.6 GHz. They have opted for 16 GB RAM as standard on this hardware.

what is SSDF?

I understand in the past, but now?

last tested SF version: SF 6 ??

don't see there Houdini either.

so, if we can conclude anything from there, only existing engines are Komodo(all versions tested), Shredder, and Hiarcs.

sorry, but I can not accept that for realistic, more like a joke.

We still honor them for what they did in the past, as first one offer a platform for competition long before we heard of Lyudmil Tsvetkov :lol:

We still honor them now for willing to play LTC games + permanent brain + opening books + allowing learning software, meaning a rating list where programs are allowed to compete on their strongest settings.

For sure it does not have the most recent versions of programs. But I still like it because it is the only list, as far as I know, that tests at 40 moves in 2 hrs.

Fantastic to see this new hardware. Their list is unique in many ways. I always like to see it.

permanent brain = bad;
opening books = bad;
learning features = bad;

how much more difficult it is to test SF8(latest development) instead of SF 6?

why test SF 6?

why not test Houdini?

unique in many ways, but how relevant?

is not the purpose of tests finding the strongest engine?

Are table bases also bad?
