And that will include the cloud stuff...?
Current Fritz engines from version 11 are "suspected" to be weaker clones of Rybka 2.32. This is surely why they don't participate in tournaments anymore also since they would'nt be allowed.
Of course the speculation is that they made it slightly weaker from rybka 2 to make still Rybka the top gun and not interfer with Vas marketing for that product(which chessbase were very grateful to get their hands on).
You can also see how they are slowly making their way for each version to the exact rating of rybka 2.32:) no trouble for Vas anymore since R3 was such a big improvement.
Check the ponderhits between R2 and Fritz 11.....
> Is it worth purchasing?
The cloud idea works like it says: I got my 12 core machine working fine through my slow laptop.
It all depends on whether Cluster Rybka is available to rent, that would be the clincher.
I also have 12 core machine but no other computers other then my wife's and daughters which i cannot use.
I know that it's difficult to make some right guesses but I'm curious and need to make you a question:
Who is stronger for you, Houdini 2.0c x64 running on your 12 cores computer, or the Cluster Rybka on 40 cores that you rented about a year ago? And if the Cluster is stronger, by how much?
Also: how many KN/s in the start position is displaying Houdini 2.0c on your 12 cores computer?
> I'm getting 26,000 KN/s and still rising from start position on my machine.
That's impressive. What kind of hardware do you have exactly?
12 core X5650 o/c to 3.8
240GB SSD hard drive
2TB second hard drive
give me one computer so i will be able to retire that dinosaur that i have
i mean computer with more than 12 cores...for example,a 16 or 32 core system
i have envy...
i will the happiest guy on this world if only i can get a quad running at 3.2....
good luck with your new computer when you will buy it Mark
12 cores is a very good computer Mark...but of course,if you can afford it,32 cores better than 12 cores,of course
The main argument was that the stagnation at the top (no AMD chip can put up a fight) should end in a year or two with Nvidia wading in on ARM architecture. Of course it's all speculation...but fun.
> Who is stronger for you, Houdini 2.0c x64 running on your 12 cores computer, or the Cluster Rybka on 40 cores that you rented about a year ago? And if the Cluster is stronger, by how much?
I tested the Cluster with a small game sample, but here is my guess: I would say Houdini 2.0c x64 Pro running on a 4.25GHz 12 core is about 40 elo weaker than the 40 Core Rybka Cluster from 1 year ago.
> Also: how many KN/s in the start position is displaying Houdini 2.0c on your 12 cores computer?
Starts at about 26,000 - 27,000 and rises to about 30,000 - 31,000 after a few minutes with 2 gig hash. (with 512 MB hash it starts at about 28,000 Kn/s and rises to 30,000-31,000)
Deep Fritz 13 (12) v Deep Rybka 4.1 (12)
5 - 15
> And will this be the main way for users to access cloud Rybka? Or even the only way?
Two good questions....
Even I as a non native speaker are able to understand that ... much in contrary to some english jibberish coming from ... abroad :-)
