The descriptions of Larry about what Rybka 3 would be and the results he has shown were completely confirmed, for me actually.
Even perhaps the result is a bit better than expected after Larry's posts.
So by thinking that way i vote 5 or perhaps 6.

Yet after a month or 2 after Rybka 2.3.2a has been released, the expectations i had of how Rybka 3 would be, was surely lower than what it is now. So in that case i would vote for 10 or maybe 9(i don't see a clear difference between them).

So my vote depends on the time you refer i had the expectations.
Expectations at May 2008 i would vote for 5 or 6.
Expectations at September 2007 i would vote for 9 or 10.

So if you don't tell me for what time you are referring i can't vote.... :-)

Thanks George, Its about how you feel now, were your expectations met.
Parent - - By George Tsavdaris (****) Date 2008-08-12 21:04
How i feel now is irrelevant. I'm asking about the time that i had the expectations you are saying....
Parent - By bluemax (**) Date 2008-08-12 21:17
Its about how you feel after playing some games and looking at the results posted so far etc.

In other words, how happy are you with the new Rybka Vs old Rybka ( or others, Fritz, Junior, Shredder etc)

There is no easy single answer for it. You should allow two answers.
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2008-08-12 22:21
just for playing strength now (did he edit it?)
Parent - By Kapaun (****) Date 2008-08-12 22:25
Oh, okay, just for playing strength there is an easy answer... :-)

Mmh, what's the point of that poll?
Parent - - By bluemax (**) Date 2008-08-13 00:08 Edited 2008-08-13 00:17
Whats the point of any poll? To get a opinion from other users. Reading and voting is optional. Don't take things so serious. The poll is a bit of fun, I'm sure you can see that from the text I put.

All it asks is how happy are you with the new Rybka on a scale of 0-10, simple.

I put 'playing strength' down because I did'nt want a debate about bugs, just about were expectations fulfilled.
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2008-08-13 00:09
ok, Rybka 3 is about 150 Elo stronger than Rybka 2. What do you expect? If just looking at the strength, there can't be a broad variety of oppinions, to say it mildly :)
Parent - - By Mark Young (*) Date 2008-08-12 23:01
I give Rybka a 10 on ratings gain. No other program I have even comes close to Rybka 3. The only programs that have be able to win games off of Rybka 3 in my testing so far is Rybka 3 D, or Rybka 3 H.

Overall I give Rybka 3 a (9), I found a few bugs. Most already known.

Rybka 3 960 has some sort of bug. When I play comp vs comp games of chess 960 in the Arena GUI, or the Shredder GUI. Rybka 3 960 will generate XXXX in the display from time to time as the move, causing the Chess 960 game to abort.

Has anyone seen this problem before?

I have had the same problem too trying to get Rybka960 to work in other GUIs, especially Arena. One notable example is that everytime it tries to castle in Arena the game aborts.
Parent - By nine castles (**) Date 2008-08-13 06:29
Yep with rybka 960 castling crashes arena

Don't use Arena for FRC, it's buggy.

like most polls in this forum (for some reason) the poll title/scenario/options aren't logically consistent, so as usual i won't vote.

i will say the elo gain of rybka 3 is unbelievable.
i'm pretty disapointed they aren't going to fix the bugs though.

i'd say i'm blown away by both those things.

If someone had told me after R2.3.2 was released that less than a year and a half later Rybka would be 150 Elo stronger, I would have thought they were a complete moron. The only thing more impressive than Rybka's performance gain is the large number of people that claim that they were robbed when they bought R3 under false pretenses.

Alan

Heh
That's not impressive, that's just life.

If Vas (or anyone) can ever release a program everyone are at least somewhat happy with, I'll seriously suspect some kind of subliminal / hypnotic images / audio in the program :)

It would have been the same if it was 350 ELO stronger than the previous Rybka.
Parent - By nine castles (**) Date 2008-08-13 06:28
I agree with everything you said. Voted 9. Nobody thought gains like this were possible. Makes me excited to think of what they will come up with next.
Parent - By Uly (Gold) Date 2008-08-13 06:04
I give it a 9. 10 if there's a version that fixes known bugs.
