CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (27th August 2017)

Post by Graham Banks » Sun Aug 27, 2017 6:26 am

The latest CCRL Rating Lists and Statistics are available for viewing from the following links:
http://computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/4040/ (40/40)
http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/404/ (40/4)
http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/404FRC/ (FRC 40/4)

Please note that the three lists are often updated separately to each other. The FRC list is only updated when a new engine or engine version is being/has been tested.

40/40 testing this week that I'm aware of will include (with live broadcast port for TLCV noted where applicable):

65th Amateur Series Division 7 Tournament (finishing Wednesday 16053)
65th Amateur Series Division 8 Tournament (finishing Friday 16002)
Super Tournament XXVI 1CPU (continuing 16001)
Menacing Claws Tournament (starting Wednesday 16053)
Tiny Chess 1.4.6 64-bit Gauntlet (continuing 16063)
chess22k 1.5 64-bit Gauntlet (continuing 16064)
RomiChess P3M 64-bit Gauntlet (starting Thursday 16065)
Gogobello 1.3 64-bit Gauntlet (finishing Wednesday 16066)
Baislicka 1.0 64-bit Gauntlet (finishing)
SugaR XPrO 1.2 64-bit Gauntlet (continuing)
Nirvanachess 2.4 64-bit Gauntlet (continuing)
Betsabe II 1.75 Gauntlet (continuing)
Rodent III 0.210 64-bit Gauntlet (starting)
Nirvanachess 2.4 64-bit 4CPU Gauntlet (continuing 16083)
Komodo 11.2.2 64-bit 4CPU Gauntlet (finishing Wednesday 16084)
Pedone 1.6 64-bit 4CPU Gauntlet (being run by Charles)
Ghost 3.1 64-bit 4CPU Gauntlet (being run by Charles)

40/4 testing since the last update has included:

Nirvanachess 2.4 64-bit
Ziggurat 0.18 64-bit
Chess22k 1.5 64-bit
Sayuri 2017.08.19 64-bit

Is the 40/4 FRC list still maintained ? Would be nice to see Demolito on there. With fewer contenders, it surely would get a better place :lol:

4 CPU testing in 40/4 would be awesome too.
Theory and practice sometimes clash. And when that happens, theory loses. Every single time.

I didn't know (or forgot) that it played FRC. I'll check it out.

I tried all the compiles on my AMD FX8350, and they all crash. They respond to the UCI command, but then crash when "Go depth 20" is executed.

Before any go command can be executed, you need a position command, and an ucinewgame command. Did you forget ucinewgame ?

I didn't forget it, no. Neither Stockfish, Houdini or Komodo for example require ucinewgame first.

But OK, yes now the AMD popcnt exe works if I use that :)

Thanks!

Actually it's normal that 3/4 compiles crash on your machine. The 2 Intel compiles are Nehalem and Haswell. The compiler is using all the allowed intel instructions for these machines, so if your AMD doesn't support them all, it will crash. And the AMD PEXT compile is for newer AMD processors with BMI2 (family 15h).

So your machine is an AMD, somewhere between AMD Family 10 (the first popcnt AMD), and AMD Family 15 (the first BMI2 AMD).

You're right of course, the compiles for newer Intels will crash because the AMD does not support those instructions. So the AMD popcnt exe is the right one for my FX8350 and does work, and should also work on my X6 1100T although I haven't tried that yet.

First 400 Demolito FRC games completed, ran smoothly with no issues :)
