1. Of course they impact playing strength, because all 'knowledge' is in the NN fileSzG wrote:I can see there are several networks for download, but Leela uses only one of them at a time.
What is the difference between the networks? Do they impact playing strength? Or playing style? Which is the one to use?
Another question: does Leela learn from playing in a tournament against various opponents?
2. Since NN ID123 the network size was increased to add more blocks+filters (from 6*64 to 10*128) and there should be some bigger jump in strength coming soon.
There was also a change to affect variety of opening moves in selfplay, which should also result in more strength (in real play) to previously 'neglected' opening trees. (I guess this needs quite some time)
3. You should always use the latest one (which did not fail = green),
even if it appears to have less selfplay rating, because this does not correlate to strength in games vs. other opponents.
4. The NN learns only in training mode
5. If you want to start testing it now it is suggested to do some 'fulltuning' of your gpu to get the most out of it. This will increase the nps of LCZero,
otherwise it quickly creates a working tuning file in the first run which is not optimized, but works with your gpu.
e.g. (might take a while - this produces a file 'leelaz_opencl_tuning')
Code: Select all
lczero.exe --tune-only --full-tuner -w ID123
