Re: Does anyone here have a Ryzen 5000 CPU?

I don't have one, but one of them was benchmarked on Ipman Chess: 31.045.535 AMD Ryzen 5 5600X @4.55Ghz 12threads BMI2 Monstru 30.951.403 AMD Ryzen 5 5600X @4.55Ghz 12threads pop Monstru We are far far away from reaching Deep Blue NPS, in a commercial computer. Deep Blue, with its capability of eva...

Re: A few observations on NNUE/ SF/ FatFritz2 and an alternate scenario.

What's puzzling is why you think this hypothetical makes what actually happened in reality any better. The hypothetical is to point out what is being conveniently forgotten - that the NNUE authors (this nothing to do with Fat Fritz) could have gone a different route and decided to get some compensa...

Re: How many engines will Sacrifice the Rook to win?

Check move 120.......Rxd4! clever way to force the opponent engine to resign ==> https://tcec-chess.com/#div=q43t&game=294&season=21 The only reason this was played is because this led to an immediate 6-men TB win and the engine hadn't found the mate. These sort of simplification into TB wins are v...

Re: A few observations on NNUE/ SF/ FatFritz2 and an alternate scenario.

Also, my hypothetical the NNUE authors created their own search while SF does not have NNUE. - this new hypothetical engine would have eventually become #1 and totally original. The effort and skill needed to get a good enough search (and NNUE net) to beat Stockfish would have been dozens of time h...

Re: A few observations on NNUE/ SF/ FatFritz2 and an alternate scenario.

And finally the statement “Using a new Japanese AI technology” is correct while attributing NNUE to StockFish is NOT. And yes, Stockfish is an AB engine with no neural network – test that and see what ranking it gets in the rating list . Test Chessbase's net with Chessbase's search code. ... Woops!...

Re: what is the maximal engine rating that you can win without a queen?

Arguably though, there is a level beyond which even with an infinite number of tries, the engine up a queen is always going to win no matter which sequence of moves are tried.

Re: New AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3995WX (Windows and Multithreading Problem)

Zen 4 won't happen before 2022, so Zen 4 Threadripper would be mid-2022 or later likely. This is late enough that a Zen 3 Threadripper would make sense, even though late compared to mainstream CPUs. Availability might be a concern indeed, but a same socket upgrade keeping mobo and RAM as for Joost m...

Re: This position look like winning for White, but can your engine solve it?

Getting this sort of made-up positions right quickly would require being worse in a lot of much more relevant positions. Not worth the trade-off.

Re: Future progress of chess software in chess

AlphaZero's code is written by humans. There was human input everywhere: general design and concept, net format, search algorithm, training game parameters, and so on. Having some part that can improve through automated training is not the same thing at all as humans being useless in the process and...
