TCEC has now nice hardware

Post by Jouni » Tue Sep 25, 2018 8:42 pm

128 cores:

SF[128] PV +0.28
[Depth: 40/39 Speed: 174Mn/s 48973M nodes]

But only for analysis - not for playing! We are heading again for SF - Komodo final?

That hardware is privately owned, and TCEC is being given access. The owner has quite an "arsenal":

"This is @noobpwnftw 's arsenal: 4xE5-4669v4 88C/176T (TB building), 8xXeon Scalable 8168 192C/384T, 100x E5-265(6)0 fishtest (800 cores), 100x Ryzen TRs (his own work), 50x i7-7xxx(random) on OpenBench (400 cores) and 400 E3-1230 (his own work)."

Hi Zullil,

I wonder, is SF[128] 128 cores / 128 threads (no HT),
or 64 cores / 128 threads (with HT) ?

Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

I believe that the 128 threads are running on a machine that has 192 physical cores.

Is this new record: [Depth: 72/14 Speed: 647Mn/s 209834M nodes] :!: :?: It was endgame position bishops and pawns both side.
