What engine will win?

Post by grigchess »

I wonder what engines will win: Strong engines Stockfich, Sugar, Komodo, Lc0, CFish, Houdini, etc if they play on a weak hardaware, lets say with 4-8 cores or engines like Pedone, Arasan, Vajolet, Nemorino, Hannibal, etc if they play on a powerful harware like in TCEC
And why?

I don't know all these engines but I believe the strong ones will still win if they play on 4-8 cores because it is not always about speed!

AllieStein, first Development Versions of Lella Chess Zero! Very good engine, and lider on TCEC 1 Division tournament.
Stoofvlees, also good engine, have some very good games on TCEC.
New engines with very good future!
I like this, because LC0 and Stockfish are not alone in strong chess!
What you say on this?

CCRL 40/4 Rating List
http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/404/
Allie 0.5 ELO 3572
Stoofvlees II ELO 3530
to compare:
Stockfish 2019-10-09 64-bit 8CPU ELO 3647
Lc0 0.22.0 w49921 RTX2080 ELO 3598

Stoofvlees private engine
Allie 0.5 free engine
Like Leela, Allie is based of the same concepts and algorithms that were introduced by Deepmind in the AlphaZero paper(s), but her code is original and contains an alternative implementation of those ideas. You can think of Allie as a young cousin of Leela that utilizes the same networks produced by the Lc0 project.

Stoofvlees is the NN rebirth of Deep Sjeng. In 2019, an updated version dubbed StoofVlees II was announced to play chess at CEGT, with neural networks instantiated on Nvidia GPUs by Gian-Carlo Pascutto.The evaluation function consists of a set of feature recognizers coupled to a neural network, which was trained with an oracle, that is the evaluation was entirely automatically learned from "watching" Grandmaster games. In spring 2019 it has a similar playing strength as Komodo 12. These informations are from wikis available on the net. It is an experimental private engine not available to the public. :geek:

And what about FatFritz, supposed to have a more active style.

But the top 6 that played in the TCEC Premiership would win in a match against others I think.

FatFritz is a slightly modified LC0. You can expect a playing strength similar to LC0 :roll:
