Well, I did a game (it took 2 hours) at large visits and didn't get the result I expected: 15 block #157 as white with 80k playouts beat 40 block 40b_157_360k e2be with 20k playouts which is very close to equal time (15b took 3114s, 40b 3201s). Looks like it was a half pointer but black did a load of inside territory nonsense instead of resigning, should I adjust some parameter? 2nd game 40 block won, same opening for first 27 moves, #157 diverged.

Here is a 40k vs 10k match I just did : 40d win as white against #157, (and it's close to time parity, with 2407s for B and 2559s for W)

If fact, I was mistaken, it's not a 40k/10k playouts match, because the LZ bots were not running at full playouts. By default, LZ thinking time is capped, so the real playouts numbers were lower (I'm not sure by how much, probably a little higher than 10k/2.5k). I suggest everyone doing this to verify if you're indeed running at the correct amount of playouts

That's indeed the big issue of a large network. Not only more time is needed per playout, but also more training games (possibly much much more training games) are needed to get a stable, good performing network.

Even if #157 could win a statistically significant (20+ games) match at 10k visits vs 40k (still seems unlikely), there surely is a visit limit where it falls apart. This is a race between a linear speed advantage vs an exponential search advantage. That's why LZ always entered competitions with experimental 20 and 40 blocks networks. The only question is whether the turning point is within the reach of an average user (which may be around 1020 sec per move on single 1080ti  both for playing and for analysis/review). But I would still bet on 40 blocks at 10k vs 40k visits already. One could also test if everything is ok (wrt settings / corrupted network files / etc) by a quick test at equal 1600 visits  this should reproduce the official result of 85+%. (high visits might also need timemanage off) Also remember this 40b is just a supervised network that haven't done any selfplay improvement yet. This will also change sooner or later.

As expected, e2be48 won them (taking 3 times more time than #157). 40b is W 40b is B Seing this, I'm still surprised that 40b doesn't perform better at time parity.

20 game match between LZ0.15#157 and LZ0.15#173 twogtp 1.4.10, 5 min per side and per game, no ponder, komi 7.5 (GPU 1x1080) #157 wins 14:6 (8 wins as W, 6 wins as B) all games by resignation Still a lot of catching up to do for the new networks... If someone wants the games, I can upload them.

20 game match between LZ0.15#157 andLZ0.15#174 (the new official best network is 256x40) twogtp 1.4.10, time parity : 5 min per side and per game, no ponder, komi 7.5 (GPU 1x1080) #157 v #174 > 10:10 (7 wins as W, 3 wins as B) all games by resignation A good surprise, 256x40 seems much stronger than the 256x20 series... I'll run some more tests tomorrow, to be sure it's not a fluke Attachment: Attachment:

40 more games between #157 and #174. In all, it's a 60 game match, at time parity (5 min per game, GPU: 1x1080, komi 7.5, no pondering) Final result : #157 wins 35:25 (58% , 17 wins as W, 18 wins as B) So, maybe #174(256x40) is not as strong as #157, but it seems stronger than the 256x20 networks. The 40 more games : Attachment: Attachment:

And almost all of the networks inbetween had a win rate of at least 55% (some winrates dropped later) against the nextlower network. Does this mean even within LZ's ELO scale the rating is not so meaningful?

Vargo is doing time parity Matches on https://zero.sjeng.org/ are played at 1600 visits

Post subject:  Re: LZ's progression 
Even without the extra time advantage the larger networks get with equal playouts in test matches, the Leelo scale from successive 55% promotions is highly inflated. Based on comparisons to Elf I estimated it as around a factor of 5. So if one network is 500 above another the Elo formula says it'd win 95% but in reality it's more likely a 100 difference for 65% (I don't have the resources to actually do a test, it's possible LZ is particularly bad against Elf compared to old versions of itself). Another way to get a similar ballpark figure: Top pros are 3600 on goratings which is kind of a continuation of EGf ratings where a beginner is about 0, whilst LZ is about 12000 now and started at 0 for random (lower than beginner), and 12000 / 3600 is about 5 too.

have a look at the recent matches, the network is now the offical top dog

Post subject:  Re: LZ's progression 
A little postscriptum : 5 min per game with 1x1080 is roughly equivalent to visits=3201 for #157, and to visits=801 for #174 At time parity, #157 has 4 times more visits and wins. At visits parity, #174 takes 4 times more time than #157 and wins. I still feel it would be more natural to determine Elo at time parity (but maybe it would be difficult to do ?)

Post subject:  Re: LZ's progression 
Does anybody know why visits are used instead of time? I think because different hardware does not matter this way. I also think this is a possible error source for further improvement of the networks.

Post subject:  Re: LZ's progression 
Match games are run with visit parity because the architecture was originally designed for fixed size net, so time and visit parity would be essentially the same. With the Leela Zero project, there has been a size upgrade every few months or so, and as the change is usually done manually, it doesn't matter since all games after that are again at time parity. Breaks the ELO graph though (or not if you would want visit parity). Selfplay ELO graph is not absolute in any case but kind of relative, so this is probably not seen as such a huge issue.

40 games between #157 and #176. Time parity, 5 min per game, GPU: 1x1080, komi 7.5, no pondering. #157 wins 29:11 (17 wins as W, 12 wins as B) Well, almost 2 months since #157... am I the only one to be so disappointed in the new networks ? Could someone run a 157 v 176 match (at timeparity, with no pondering), just to be sure of these results. Attachment: Attachment:

You probably won't see a fast improvement in these 1s/move games, even if the slower networks are getting stronger and stronger, because that strength still needs a meaningful sized search tree to do it's work. Below a certain limit more search beats smarter search, no way around that.But this doesn't mean the new networks are weaker at "time parity" in general  just in these very fast games.
