Position #169 is not good enough because 2 moves are clearly winning : Ng5 and Bxh7+

Zahak finds Ng5 fairly quickly, and sticks to it. Never changing to Bxh7+:

A got my new computer 5 months ago :
CPU : AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 16-Core 3.40 GHz (running most of the time between 3.9 and 4.0 GHz)
Memory : DDR4 128GB PC 3200 CL16 G.Skill (8x16 GB)
OS : Windows 10 Professionnel

I first test it with Stockfish same version used on my old computer (POPNCT), after that with the AVX2 version and after that with the large page enable.
The result was as expected : around +10% speed with AVX2 and again +10% speed with large page enable.

Bench with SF 14.1 :
2 runs with 32 threads, CPU running around 3.5 GHz : 47.399.601 and 46.767.743 Nodes/second
2 runs with 16 threads, CPU running around 3.9 GHz : 35.689.329 and 35.268.145 Nodes/second

The numbers seem OK compared to the page : http://ipmanchess.yolasite.com/amd--int ... ckfish.php

With this new computer, I ran the Hard-Talkchess-2020 set revision 2021, the version with 114 positions.

Conditions :
- CPU : 5950X running around 3.9 GHz
- 16 threads used
- 5 minutes per position
- 6 man Syzygy + KRPPKRP
- 64 GB HashTable (still more than 50 GB for Syzygy cache)
- Several runs are needed because multithread is used. I fill the sheet and I use some formula to get average numbers.

Tests in the next message.

Results with the new computer.

Conditions :
- CPU : 5950X running around 3.9 GHz
- 16 threads used (to avoid hyper-threading)
- 5 minutes per position
- 6 man Syzygy + KRPPKRP
- 64 GB HashTable (still more than 50 GB for Syzygy cache)
- Several runs are needed because multithread is used. I fill the sheet and I use some formula to get average numbers.
- AVX2 version used everywhere when possible

List sorted from best to worst :
Name / #found-average / (Time with penalty in seconds) / number of runs
Blue Marlin 14.4a : 101,2 (84) on 11 runs
SugaR AI ICCF 1.90 : 101,0 (82) on 6 runs
ShashChess18.2 : 100,5 (92) on 11 runs
ShashChess20.1 : 98,7 (99) on 10 runs
ShashChess20 : 98,4 (101) on 10 runs
Crystal 3.2 : 98,2 (99) on 5 runs
Blue Marlin 14.5 : 98,0 (102) on 13 runs
ShashChess17.1 : 98,0 (111) on 6 runs
SugaR AI ICCF 2.40 : 96,8 (103) on 14 runs
Honey-v14 : 96,3 (116) on 8 runs
SugaR AI ICCF 2.50 : 93,9 (117) on 10 runs
Stockfish_21.11.23.21 : 92,4 (141) on 5 runs
Stockfish_21.08.05.16 : 91,2 (149) on 5 runs

Sheet with all results here (you can download the file if it doesn't display very well in the browser) : https://www.dropbox.com/s/wmgbzeesjcz4e ... 0.ods?dl=0

Still to do : some more runs with Crystal 3.2, test Crystal 3.1, remove some doubtful positions posted in this thread.

That is the demonstration that derivatives can be better than Stockfish, at least in tactical analysis. :)

Added Crystal 3.1

You have really invested for this testsuite (hardware + time)! How about testing tablebases influence? I am 99% sure, that they effect is less than SMP randomness.

I could write a SF derivate that solves 100% of these positions.
I could even write a Rubi derivate that solves 100%.
