last elo rise was due to bugfix, before that it had like 50 elo progress in 500k games.
But seems that bugfix is dried out for now and latest 400k games bring negative elo.

What we need is some of these 2 PF machines:

Anybody got $400K in pocket change lying around waiting for an impulse buy?
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Will tensor cores speed things up in Volta?

There's a Nvidia video here if you scroll down to where it says "what are Tensor cores?"

Equal to the first alphazero maybe, but how strong is Alphazero now ?

Not a chance.

The Cerebellum book is nothing but data. There is no strength added to the engine at all, though there is strength added to the play. The AZero team could also use the same book, of course. It's public.

And SF is just SF. A bit stronger, but nothing amazing.

I hope this is the last and only post that you name LCZero as Stockfish zero. Its too far out

It is around 2000 Elo CCRL if Dann is right. The Baron, 7th in TCEC division 4, is 2800, and Scorpio, last in division 4, is 3000 Elo.
