Re: Can any engine solve this puzzle, White to move and Win?

The problem with "ignore user" in here is terrible. In many forums, if you ignore the user, you dont see that user's posts anymore. In here, look at this. I still see the " Title of such useless posts " everyday in msin menu. https://imgur.com/dHhCXkl Only under the title, it just ignores the user p...

Re: Stockfish with new NNUE architecture and bigger net released

Will they release it as SF14 I wonder. Do not think so. The Elo gain is not that big... The "normal" LTC test in the SF-framework (with 60''+600ms thinkingtime) gave +5.85 Elo. But, as written on abrok.eu, this new architecture and bigger netsize is a great base for further improvements. Thats the ...

Re: Is Stockfish stronger than Alpha Zero NOW ?

Based on multiple simulation tests and other collateral tests, both Leela and Stockfish are estimated to be + 170 to +200 elo stronger than Alpha Zero in TCEC testing conditions. ( Keep in mind, AZ is an extremely basic NN that dont know time managament and can not access Tablebases)

Re: Lc0 question

For my gambit tournament (see elsewhere) I want to include Lc0-v27. Hardware RTX 1060 6Gb. Time control one : 40moves in 2 minutes --> which net? Time control two : 40moves in 15 minutes --> which net? I am guessing his hardware is 1060 GTX ( RTX series start with 2060). Assuming 1060 GTX, slow old...

Re: Lc0 in CCC matches

I think they should go to double sized networks, like FF2. On high end hardware at decent time controls, 384x30 are clearly the strongest amongst those tested by the LC0 group. I have found on my hardware the big networks are considerably stronger tactically. Since tactical strength appears to be a...

In CCC one thread SF (NNUE) beats 250 threads Ethereal! And plays equal to 250 threads Komodo or SF classic. Definitely doubling of cores don't give 70 ELO anymore :) .
It looks like you did not know before that engine strength tapers over time like 'rat tail'

Re: Anti-Engine Puzzle

Some people feel proud that they found the puzzles that engines are hard to solve. If the puzzles are " too hard to solve" by engines, then those positions are unlikely to occour in real chess or rubbish positions. In fact, Stockfish get bettter and better by selectively searching and excluding sear...

Re: Suggestions for a new PC

Hi, I need that it has at least 8 physical cores, mainly to run engine vs engine blitz tournaments, 1 core per engine, no ponder (at least 7 simultaneous games). Also to analyze chess games. I guess 16 GB RAM might be enough. OTOH, what would be a good GPU for that PC so Lc0 could compete vs SF wit...

Re: Suggestions for a new PC

So with this integrated graphics, I guess Lc0 can't run at full strength. Can Leela use a TPU instead of a GPU? I tried Googling it, but didn't get a clear answer - if I'm lucky, someone here will know! I am sure , the answer is "No". There is no LCO code written for TPU. (TPU code is written by De...

Re: An actual interesting computer chess read about FF2

Obviously observer biased error with cherry pick positions.
Give him unknown copy of FF2 and SF13 and let him analyse about 10 to 20 positions.
Let us know what he think is better. 😁😁😁
