Well time for my yearly posts. So what's new this year, Alpha zero obviously the mysterious and elusive engine of the year maybe it will be revealed vasik was behind this all along, the fruits of years of self learning meditation in the Himalayan mountains and the chess gods have finally answered. And in 2018 we'll finally see Rybka 5 zero or Rybka Five-O rental neural network engine, 200 elo stronger than any chess entity currently existing. Or we'll just get Fritz 17, a full single elo stronger than Fritz 16. :lol:

Well let's bump this thread again for the holidays. This year we now have lc0 coming from the shadows of AlphaZero and quickly climbing the engine ranks and Stockfish 10 now taking a thousand cores just to add 50 elos. It's a battle of open community frameworks now, who'll win in 2019? Will the AI with a commercially available gpu finally surpass traditional engines on all forms of CPU or will traditional engines still prevail with faster cpus also on the way with upcoming AMD 7nm cpus?

Or was this Vasik's plan all along so he could combine lc0 eval with sf search and pruning so he could create Rental Rybka Zero cluster that will blow everything out of the water by hundreds of elos for just 500 euros a day. Or screw all that trouble and rename Fritz 16 to 17 with Vasik still the author and call it a day, why improve elo or software if you can still milk the fritz and chessbase brand anyway. :lol:

That's exactly what I'm worry about.

Hi All, With the Mrs asleep on the sofa I sneaked off to my computer room to play some online blitz which will be funny as I may have more alcohol than blood in my system at the moment :twisted: but thought I would drop in and wish everyone a merry christmas  and a great new year. Being bored I just ordered four NOCTUA NF-A14 INDUSTRIALPPC 3000RPM PWM 140MM HIGH PERFORMANCE FANS to fit on my radiator in my WC loop BECAUSE!! the noise of the aircon unit that my radiator sits on is starting to drive me frigging MAD :mad: and my sanity is not worth the humongous air flow the aircon gives :grin::lol:

Regards
Tony
