No, there is a sweet spot where larger is not better. On 2080 Ti, 320x24 is better than 256x20 only in blitz and longer time control, not in bullet or faster. Larger nets do scale better with hardware and time control. I guess this 384x30 net can be the strongest only at some VERY long time controls, like 1 hour/move on an RTX GPU. Also, the strength is not well defined. I seem to have observed comparing best 256x20 and 320x24 nets, that in a direct match, larger net beats the smaller starting with some 5s/move, but against Stockfish it can perform worse, and performs better only at LTC. I am checking right now this. The problem with larger 320x24 nets with RTX GPU for Lc0 is that they tactically catch up only with very much time allotted, and at blitz TC are vulnerable against Stockfish tactical shots. Larger nets are positionally indeed better, but they need much more time for tactics.shrapnel wrote: ↑Sun Oct 20, 2019 8:23 amCoupled with a strong GPU like 2080 or 2080 Ti or even two of them together, it IS.
Master Om gave you the link, try them, the last one is best I think.
Even the 32 Cores Players will be unable to beat you, if you use this Network, at least not easily, given at least a reasonably good Book and a 2080 or 2080 Ti.
Here are results from test suites, the best nets of their size, RTX 2070 GPU:
256x20 T40B.4-200 net:
positional: score=157/200 [averages on correct positions: depth=4.6 time=0.87 nodes=18890]
tactical: score=121/199 [averages on correct positions: depth=7.1 time=0.95 nodes=13717]
320x24 J13B.4-150 net:
positional: score=160/200 [averages on correct positions: depth=4.9 time=1.11 nodes=9742]
tactical: score=108/199 [averages on correct positions: depth=6.3 time=1.35 nodes=7927]
Now a blitz gauntlet against Sockfish compares them.
