Hi Frank,

I’ve had Wasp 3.50 & CT800 1.34 on my DGT Pi for a while, so thanks for the heads up on Wasp 3.60.
You might be surprised with CT800, on my Raspberry Pi 3b+ I have Wasp at 2845 and CT800 at 2190.

Here’s my Wasp bench:

Al@PicoChess:~ $ ./wasp360 -bench
Wasp 3.60 running benchmark using 1 threads

pos 4: 9.74 seconds
pos 5: 21.29 seconds
pos 6: 39.70 seconds
pos 7: 9.01 seconds
pos 8: 11.99 seconds

Hi Allan,

that's interesting.
The Raspberry by John is also a bit faster as my DGT Pi.

Honestly, more as 2.600 Elo on DGT I never used.
But self playing and games vs. the older chess computers is very interesting for me.

To added Wasp / CT800 in the chess computer I will start next week is also an event.
Will be a great tourney!!

Best
Frank

Thanks to both. It's always a pleasure for me to test Wasp :)

Hi Ted,

at the moment I have really a lot of fun to compare Wasp with the older chess computers.
The chess computer community have an opponent more with that idea.

CT800 program by Rasmus is also great program for such an idea.

Programming knowledge from the past vs. Programming knowledge from a modern engine today
And all this with the same level in Elo!

If you are looking in detail in the games I added ...
Two different worlds of chess plays these games!

With the result:
Fidelity Mach III or Mach IV must have / search the advantage in the mid-game because in the end-game no chance. Wasp or the older chess computers with around the same Elo = Mid-game vs. End-game. Interesting constellation! And double interesting because Wasp is playing a very strong mid-game.

So the produced games are wonderful.
Never before in the last 20 years I have so many fun with my hobby computer chess.

Best
Frank
I like computer chess!
