I'll add Leela with the official release, unfortunately I am still not able to compile the latest version Rayon...

I had downloaded CUDA older version and NVIDIA driver v.340. But while executing command "./darknet go test cfg/go.test.cfg go.weights" I get error: "CUDA Error: invalid device function"...
And what about how is it possible to run darknet in gtp mode with maximum strong (including pondering, neural network), using 2 CPU cores, up to 8 GB memory and up to 2 min / move time?

Thanks in advance.

DarkNet-MoGo4: 3-1
DarkNet-Pachi: 0-4

DarkNet start up parameters:
Code:
go engine cfg/engine.cfg go.weights

Details

So DarkNet isn't ready for use (weak engine, no documentation, doesn't know nor time control commands, nor resigning, nor final score)...

The rating of strongest programs with GTP support without using GPU by real sparring is next:

League A
1. Leela

League B
2. Hiratuka
3. Ray
4. Pachi
5. DarkNet
6. MoGo


Go engines start up parameters.

I'm not sure if it's the right place to post this. If not, please tell me.

I've used Sabaki for matches (GTP) between AQ 2.0.3, Leela0110GTP_OpenCL, Leela0110GTP, and GnuGo 3.8

My computer : Windows 10 i7-6700K (4gHz) 32GB GTX1080
Leela benchmark : 200000 games in 9.27s. 21574 g/s (2696 g/s per thread)

GnuGo level 10, AQ and Leela 30" per move (time_settings 0 30 1)
no pondering


Results :

9 stones handicap : Leela0110GTP_OpenCL (W) beats GnuGo (B) 5-0 (3 times by resignation, and twice by 40-50 points)

Even games : AQ beats Leela0110GTP_OpenCL 5-0

2 stones handicap : AQ (W) beats Leela0110GTP_OpenCL (B) 4-1 (always by resignation)

AQ is very strong... It seems to confirm these results :

Quote:
1. AQ 2.0.3 12/16
2. Leela 0.11.0 Beta 11 4/16


2 stones handicap
: Leela0110GTP_OpenCL (W) beats Leela0110GTP (B) 4-1 (always by resignation)

Leela "GPU accelerated" seems to be 2 stones stronger than the standard version...


I'm very grateful to the authors of these programs, I enjoy them immensely. :clap: :tmbup:
I have lots of questions about the various commands (time settings, number of threads, etc. etc) but I don't think it's the right place to ask them.

I'll keep experimenting, with other handicaps and time settings

Who is stronger between AQ, Rayon, and Leela? Can we rank them in 1-2-3 order?

You can try with pondering, half of Your PC CPU (I don't know, how it may be with GPU) cores to each engine and 2' for move without handicap (it will be close to real pro games)...

If Leela without OpenCL - I think, it will be 3. But it beats Ray...

Don't know anything about AQ. The DGS ranking of Leela and Rayon bots have been consistently showing Rayon with 2 stone stronger.

Leela v0.10.o , 4 Dan

Rayon version 8.0.1 (RN-3.9), 6 Dan

Leela v0.10.o , 4 Dan
Leela 0.10 is weaker than Leela 0.11, which is weaker than Leela 0.11 openCL, which is weaker than AQ.

On my computer, AQ 2.0.3.1 (W) wins each time against Rn-4.20.4 (B) with 2 stones handicap

In CGOS (computer go server) http://www.yss-aya.com/cgos/19x19/bayes.html
AQ is 3877 Elo, it's very high. On the same site, for example, Gnugo-level 11 is ranked 517, with 1825 Elo, and
Ray-4.20, running on 8 CPU, is 3743 Elo
Still in the same site, Leela is around 3700 Elo with 16 threads and GPU.
But it's heavily dependent on the hardware, it's hard to make a fair comparison, because we usually don't know the exact specifications of the computers used for these games, hence the interest of the results obtained by as0770 in his engine tournament, same conditions and same hardware used for every engine (I suppose)

League B updated with Leela Zero and the weights file provided by GCP. It will be interesting to see how it can improve with better weigths files.

Interesting that it lost 4 of 4 vs. Fuego and even 2 of 4 vs. Orego. On the other hand it was able to win 2 of 4 against Ray.

New entry in League D is GoTraxx.

But it's heavily dependent on the hardware, it's hard to make a fair comparison, because we usually don't know the exact specifications of the computers used for these games, hence the interest of the results obtained by as0770 in his engine tournament, same conditions and same hardware used for every engine (I suppose)

Quite right! Except the problems of same conditions while using GPU and of obtained with this synthetic conditions results equivalenty to results, obtained with real games conditions...

I have tested Leela 0.11.0 (details). The rating of engines with GTP support and without using GPU by sparrings in real Go games conditions remains the same:

League A
1. Leela

League B
2. Hiratuka
3. Ray
4. Pachi
5. DarkNet
6. MoGo


Go engines start up parameters.

Darknet from 08.11.17 doesn't play - passes. So this engine will not be in new ratings...
Oakfoam remains very weak engine (weaker, then MoGo: details).
The rating of Go engines without using GPU is next:

League A
1. Leela

League B
2. Hiratuka
3. Ray
4. Pachi
5. MoGo


Go engines start up parameters.

Playing engine matches with ponder=off on one GPU is no problem. There might be a slight difference because of the GPU memory usage but this is not measurable for me.

Playing matches on different machines can always lead to different results. We can rate engines just for specific conditions. Budget- or High-End-PC. With one GPU, with several GPUs or without GPU, With one CPU or several CPUs. With timecontrol, or fixed number of playouts. The difference between ponder on and ponder off matches is nearly irrelevant compared to all the other influences and for sure interfered by the statistical fluctuation when rating the engines with less than 100 games.
