My LTC tests actually show better result than 28 elo for SF but I don't have enough games finished considering the error margin.

Moreover, I was addressing the more cores aspect, not the LTC one.

Contempt may contribute to this, but our tests indicate that it's a pretty minor factor. Perhaps it's just something about their styles. My theory is that because Stockfish is so different from all the other top engines in terms of trading accuracy for depth, it tends to lose or draw a similar number of games to all strong opponents due to the occasional pruned good move, while Komodo just tends to see more than all other engines besides SF most of the time. So Komodo might win a three way event including Houdini or a 4 way event including Gull while still losing the direct match to SF. Of course this all depends on the details like time limit, hardware, etc. Whether strength is best measured by a match of the top two or by a RR of the top three or four is a matter of opinion. Both methods have been used to determine the human World Champion.

I prefer a final, head to head match to decide who is strongest if both come out on top in a big tournament (such as TCEC)
At this moment I think latest SFdev is ahead of about 54-55% over Komodo 8 in such a match at tournament TC
Hi Gentlemen

let me whisper some of my TLC match results :

regards Clemens
I predict a big difference when you rerun this test with SF091114

possibly, but i think TCEC will do a good job of showcasing the present state of affairs. komodo has improved as well of course, its just not public yet.

But at the main levels of these two lists (40/40 and 40/20 respectively) Komodo 8 has a substantial lead over SF5 on both one core and 4 cores; the average lead for Komodo8 of these four ratings is 25 elo. So even if SF has gained 23 elo, K8 would have a 2 elo lead based on those numbers. It would be interesting to see some matches run at intermediate levels like maybe 20' plus 10" increment for example, slow enough to measure strength at a level typical of how they are used, but fast enough to get big samples on good hardware.

Difference between SFdev211114 and K8 at blitz and rapid TC nov 2014
I have played four 100 games matches of SF211114 against Komodo 8 on two PC’s with same openingbook 25 lines, colours reversed
On each PC a 100games match with TC 3m2s and another one with TC 15m10s (5times longer TC)
Avg game lenght approximate 8-9 minutes for TC 3m2s and 45-47 minutes TC 15m10s
One system AMD 1090T @3200Mhz, 4 cores, PB off and one system Intel i5 4200m @2500Mhz 2 cores, PB off
All four matches ended in a SF victory , overall 56,5% for SF (about 45 ELO difference)
On the i5 4200M At TC 3m2s the outcome was 57% for SF and for TC 15m10s it was 60% (!)
On the AMD 1090T at TC 3m2s the outcome was 53% for SF and for TC 15m10s it was 56%
Draw ratio from 54% at tc 3m2s on the i5 4200M and 66 % at tc 3m2s on the AMD 1090T
Aggregated 200 games blitz 3m2s, 55% for SF, while 200 games rapid 15m10s , 58% for SF

Conclusions: Latest SF241114 against Komodo 8 from blitz till rapid is clearly winning, with 3% better results at the (5x longer) rapid TC.

Some match highlights of the last 30m20s fifty games match

First position K8 favours this position just as +0,12 for black (depth25), while SF has allready +1,3 (depth33)
It seems to be that the generally known good eval for K8 in positions having the rooks for a queen, sometimes backfires in positions where the queen has more attacking power than the rooks.
[D] 3r2k1/4qpp1/4b2p/8/p2Q3P/2P1PB2/1N3nP1/R3R1K1 b - - 0 31

Second position from the match. Position seems blocked but SF unlocks, wins the exchange and wins in convincing way the endgame.
K8 as black thinks +0,22 having played Ne8 at depth 25, while SF as white plays 23 Bc2 and gives +0,85 at depth 27. Later on SF opens with g3 and f4 and exchanges the pawn on e5, black takes back and white advances its d-pawn to d6, threatens c7 to fork the rooks as so happens and wins the game in technical way
[D] r3n1k1/2qbbp2/rp1p2pp/2pPp3/P1P1Pn2/1BN1NP2/3B2PP/R3QRK1 w - - 0 22

Third position is a nice king attacking knight sac with ..Nh5! in a Spanish game
K8 has just played 25 ..Na6 with +0,16 at depth 24. Sf plays Nh5 ! a knight sac with +1,5 at depth 30 because of unstoppable attack on the king 26 Nh5 – gxh5 27 e5+ Kg8 28 e6 !
[D] 2b1r3/3n1pbk/nq1p2pp/1ppP4/4P3/R4NNP/1P1B1PP1/1BQ3K1 w - - 0 26

The three Komodo wins out of the 50 games match, where a black win in a kings gambit after 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Nf3 . K8 played Be7 +0,25 and won in nice matter.
The second win was right out of the opening, +057 in a sharp Sicilian opening line.
And the last win was with white in an almost equal middle game position it showed SF how to elegantly outplay your opponent with the advantage of an advanced centre pawn.
K8 played 32 Nd4 +0,31 depth 22. SF doesnt aknowledge playing Rh5 +0.00 at dept 30. K8 exhanges knights on e6 exhanges the bishops with Bd4 and (although one pawn down) plays with its heavy pieces around the d6 pawn, which kind of paralyses blacks play and finally breaking through using its kingside pawns, and that all because of this important strong advantage, a pawn passer on d6
[D] 2r3k1/1p1q1pbp/3Pn1p1/1p3r2/8/Q3BN1P/3R1PP1/3R2K1 w - - 0 32

The second 50 games match on i5 4200M has ended so now for all TC's 100 games are played
The trend of steady performance is confirmed.
The SF 21114 version against Komodo 8 scores from blitz till LTC about the same. A win percentage of 57, 60, and 59,5 % respectively for TC 3m2s, 15m10s and 30m20s
It is a pity that this version doesnt play on TCEC ;-)

But at the main levels of these two lists (40/40 and 40/20 respectively) Komodo 8 has a substantial lead over SF5 on both one core and 4 cores; the average lead for Komodo8 of these four ratings is 25 elo. So even if SF has gained 23 elo, K8 would have a 2 elo lead based on those numbers. It would be interesting to see some matches run at intermediate levels like maybe 20' plus 10" increment for example, slow enough to measure strength at a level typical of how they are used, but fast enough to get big samples on good hardware.
Can one really speak of ELO in an absolute way? I mean.. Nakamura is like +200 elo at rapid and blitz :)
