I am making the third ABK Book Tournament! Time controls will be 15 minutes.
i5-4670k @ 4.6ghz
8gb DDR3 1866
256gb Samsung Pro Series 840
The hash size should be 512gb... But Arena has a glitch where sometimes the hash size doesn't work. If I can't fix it, it'll be at 10mb hash size.
Please notice the CPU specification. It is a very fast CPU at 4.6ghz, with IPC improvements it will defeat a 5.0ghz Sandy Bridge. This is a big jump from my previous rig of Q6600. This means results may vary as the hardware is drastically changed and the computing power of Houdini increases. The nodes per second increased little bit more than 3 times, that means a 15 minute game here would calculate like a 45 minute game in my older machine.
So if you have a book you want to test or know a book and want it tested, please post here or PM me.
Are you ready? I'm ready.
It's time for ABK Book Bash III!
MrQ3 [Newer than Quinox 5a]
Olympiad [From Arena 3.0]
Titus [From Arena 3.0]
Note: Send me a newer version of one of these books and I'll use that.
