Since you’re here...

... we have a small favour to ask. More people, like you, are reading and supporting our blog: "Chess Engines Diary". And unlike many other sites and blogs, we made the choice to keep our articles open for all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay.

We hope you will consider supporting us today. We need your support to continue to exist, because good entries are more and more work time. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support "Chess Engines Diary" even a small amount– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

Dragon 3.1 by Komodo Chess available now!

Larry Kaufman: "We have released Dragon 3.1 at komodochess.com, which today won the World Computer Chess Championship after a tiebreak match with Lc0. Dragon uses NNUE (Neural Network Updated Efficiently) technology, originally developed for the game of shogi. Komodo has a great deal of chess knowledge in its evaluation. Training an NNUE network based on this evaluation was both an advantage and a challenge, requiring experimentation with architectures and data generation of billions of positions. The reinforcement learning phase for Dragon is in its infancy, but is already showing great promise." More

Chess engine: Avalanche 1.1.0 NNUE

Avalanche - UCI (NNUE Chess Engine) Author: SnowballSH  Rating CEDR=2620 v.1.1.0: This version includes an optimization of NNUE (using Zig comptime features), addition of Singular Extension, Multicut, and more aggressive pruning factors. Choice of binary Avalanche currently does not support 32-bit systems. First, find your OS name (linux, macos, windows). Then, if your CPU is 2013 or newer (Intel Core i3 or newer, or any CPU supporting POPCNT), you should select the Haswell one (This should be the case for most users reading this sentence). If you have a 2013 or older CPU, choose the one without haswell. Haswell binary performs a lot faster than the general one. If you are unsure, use the haswell first and if it crashes, use the general one.
