Thx Andreas,

Very nice comparing by doubling TC four times to see what ELO shifts arouse between those top engines
What I miss though is the specific result between the engines
For instance if engine A scores 50% against B at TC 1 what does it score at the other TC's
The results show already that SF performs better at longer time controls
But what does it give for Komodo TCEC in its matches against Houdini 4 ?
I expect to see something like 2-3 % going from TC 15 to TC 240.
According to Larry Kaufman, Komodo 6 would gain 8ELO(is approx 1%) for each time doubling against Houdini 4
Would be interesting to verify that

thx Andreas

Well it seems that Larry could be right.
Komodo 6 TCEC goes from 40,7% to 42,5% to 44,5% gaining about approx 1% better performance (=7 ELO) with each time doubling going from 15 sec. + 0.15 sec. tot 240 sec. + 2.40 sec
If that trend would continue with each following time doubling, than K6 would get 49,5% at TC 64 min + 38,4 sec in your setup
It is a pity it would take to much time and effort to verify that

Re: Timecontrol comparison - H4, SF, K-TCECr

Perhaps we can say something more about the trend of diminishing Elo gap between H and K by each time doubling
Andreas you have done another nice test between top 3 on TC 30 minutes (1000 games pro engine) to which alas until now no one responded
http://www.talkchess.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=50860
In that test Komodo 6TCEC scored 46,9% against Houdini 4
If doubling theory would be true than here about 48% was to be expected

But lets not longer bother about number two and three anymore. A more important conclusion from that test was that Stockfish DD (already then) showed its superiority over Houdini and Komodo
From SF DD till version SF 270114 from now SF has gained another 30-40 ELO
So its hello and goodbye for Houdini and Komodo
