p>Komodo Dragon 3 - Neural Network Chess Evaluation
Greatly improved Komodo Dragon 3 Engine
new Komodo Dragon 3 engine has gained 100 Elo points in playing
strength over its predecessor when using a processor core in blitz.
That's a huge improvement for a program that already reached at an Elo
level of over 3500! The gain is even greater (120 to 130 Elo points) for
unbalanced openings, e.g. rare variations or gambits. On multiple cores
or longer time controls the Elo gain can be somewhat smaller, due to
the higher draw range.
Better playing strength = faster analysis
absolute gain in playing strength also offers real practical
advantages: Komodo Dragon 3 takes only about a quarter of the time to
play or analyze at the same level as Dragon 2! Or it plays better chess
in the same time on a single core than its predecessor did on four
cores. The large Elo increase is due to a new net structure for NNUE
with a corresponding new net, as well as various optimizations and
improvements in the search.
One for all: Playing strength freely selectable between Elo 1 and 3500
previous playing level scheme model has been replaced in Komodo Dragon 3
with arbitrarily adjustable Elo strength settings from 1 to a maximum
of 3500. The Elo values refer to human play in rapid chess and are can
be used to ensure balanced games. With reduced playing strength the
engine makes the kind of mistakes that are to be expected from humans
with rating level that is set. The Elo settings of Komodo Dragon 3 have
been tested and tuned against many human players, of various playing
strengths. It was optimized in the GM level in many rapid chess games
against GM Alex Lenderman, who is part of the Komodo development team.
