Latest Website-News (2019/06/18): Testrun of BrainFish-2 190531 (using Cerebellum Release 173 and Leela-Cerebellum T40.T8.610) finished - no progress. Next testruns: Stockfish 190614 and Lc0 0.21.2 N:42595. Results not before next Monday.

 

New release of Drawkiller V3.1 - all opening-books now in Polyglot-format, too. Learn more in the "Drawkiller openings" -section of the website and download the complete Drawkiller V3.1 package right here

 

My Drawkiller Openings Project is finished. Never before any openings-set gave such low draw-rates without crunching the scores of the engines towards 50%, but instead pushing the scores away from 50%. The Drawkiller Normal- and Tournament sets nearly halve the draw-rate, compared to FEOBOS or the Stockfish Framework 8-move openings. I would never have expected, that this was possible – the Drawkiller project is really a breakthrough into another dimension of Computerchess. Learn more about Drawkiller openings in the "Drawkiller openings"- section on this website and download them here

 

Stay tuned.

 


Stockfish testing

 

Playing conditions:

 

Hardware: i7-6700HQ 2.6GHz Notebook (Skylake CPU), Windows 10 64bit, 8GB RAM

Fritzmark: singlecore: 5.3 / 2521 (all engines running on one core, only), average meganodes/s displayed by LittleBlitzerGUI: Houdini: 2.6 mn/s, Stockfish: 2.2 mn/s, Komodo: 2.0 mn/s

Hash: 512MB per engine

GUI: LittleBlitzerGUI (draw at 160 moves, resign at -700cp (for 4 moves))

Tablebases: None

Openings: HERT testset (by Thomas Zipproth) (download the file at the "Download & Links"-section or here)(I use a version of HERT, where the positions in the file are ordered in a different way - makes no difference for testing-results, dont be confused, when you download my gamebase-file and the game-sequence doesnt match with the sequence of your HERT-set...)

Ponder, Large Memory Pages & learning: Off

Thinking time: 180''+1000ms (= 3'+1'') per game/engine (average game-duration: around  7.5 minutes). One 5000 games-testrun takes about 7 days.The version-numbers of the Stockfish engines are the date of the latest patch, which was included in the Stockfish sourcecode, not the release-date of the engine-file, written backwards (year,month,day))(example: 170526 = May, 26, 2017). Since July, 2018 I use the abrok-compiles of Stockfish again (http://abrok.eu/stockfish), because they are now much faster than before - now only 1.3% slower than BrainFish-compiles. So, there is no reason anymore to not use these "official" development-compiles.

Download BrainFish (and the Cerebellum-Library)here

 

Each Stockfish-version plays 1000 games versus Komodo 13.01, Houdini 6, Fire 7.1, Xiphos 0.5.3, Ethereal 11.25. All engines are running with default-settings, except: Move Overhead is set to 300ms, if an engine allows to do so.

To avoid distortions in the Ordo Elo-calculation, from now, only 2x Stockfish (latest official release + the latest version) and 1x asmFish and 1x Brainfish are stored in the gamebase (all older engine-versions games will be deleted, every time, when a new version was tested). Stockfish, asmFish and BrainFish older Elo-results can still be seen in the Elo-diagrams below. BrainFish plays always with the latest Cerebellum-Library of course, because otherwise BrainFish = Stockfish.

 

Latest update: 2019/06/18: BrainFish-2 190531 (no progress)

 

(Ordo-calculation fixed to Stockfish 10 = 3508 Elo)

The version-numbers (180622 for example) of the engines are the date of the latest patch, which was included in the Stockfish sourcecode, not the release-date of the engine-file. Especially the asmFish-engines are often released much later!!

Below you find a diagram of the progress of Stockfish in my tests since the end of 2018

And below that diagram, the older diagrams.

 

You can save the diagrams (as a JPG-picture (in originial size)) on your PC with mouseclick (right button) and then choose "save image"...

The Elo-ratings of older Stockfish dev-versions in the Ordo-calculation can be a little different to the Elo-"dots" in the diagram, because the results/games of new Stockfish dev-versions - when getting part of the Ordo-calculation - can change the Elo-ratings of the opponent engines and that can change the Elo-ratings of older Stockfish dev-versions (in the Ordo-calculation / ratinglist, but not in the diagram, where all Elo-"dots" are the rating of one Stockfish dev-version at the moment, when the testrun of that Stockfish dev-version was finished).
