Is it totally correct to think of CCRL as equal hardware where you have 1, 2 and 4CPU entities competing and being rated together?
I think this is to measure how much Elo the parallel version of an engine gains.

There are only 1CPU and 4CPU anyway, so must be years since he visited. :P

[...snip...]
Why can't a GPU become something like a new category of hardware? I know a lot depends on the actual GPU, and benchmarking that can become tricky, but maybe a 'most common denominator' GPU could be used as a new category of engine hardware (?)
Thats what i called a "black box".
We will do so @ CEGT 40/4+... :

There is absolutely no need to use a RTX-Card for testing
against 1-, 2-, or 4-CPU A/B-Engines on CPUs like ours.
A middle-rate GPU will do.
