Rent of 36 engines for 5 days for 20 $ or 20 €.
A new service "Rent engines for IA". The cost of $ 5 or € 5 for 5 days. Connecting to the Aquarium, Chessbase or Fritz.
Now with IDeA work even better! A combined analysis of 36 engines for the IDeA and powerful engine for IA provide an excellent result!

Review of International Grandmaster Pavel Ponkratov, FIDE rating in classical chess 2600+,
Russian champion in rapid chess in 2015.

Thanks to the authors of this project, was able to test a few days ago an interesting tool. 44
engine on the basis of shell Aquarium. In fact, from here has begins nuances.

The first moment - this shell provides great opportunities, but it requires a detailed study,
and I suspect, I could not reveal the full potential of the cluster.

The second moment - there is 44 single-core engine, but not 44 - Multi-core processor,
it's also important to understand.

I considered my position was quite a lot, therefore, not to turn this review into a full article,
try to briefly describe the thoughts and impressions. The automatic analysis has left mixed
feelings. On the one hand, get a lot of interesting information, in the studied positions were
found new opportunities. On the other hand, even this might not solve the problem of
positions, where it is very difficult to change the structure of, and the need to look long
transfers figures with the aim of perfect position. But flying on manual clearly left positive
emotions - throw sliders moves, I cleaned a few wrong answers, and as a result, the overall
performance was very high.

It should be noted feature of works IdeA - performance data engines are displayed in a
tree, and not just issued "first line".

The tool is good. The overall performance improves greatly, especially in the new
positions. True to disable head all during the analysis do not recommend. I think, from time
to time, will use this product, because have the opportunity to see the difficult position on a
powerful cluster, being virtually anywhere in the world - it's wonderful!

We have reached the optimum capacity - 50 engines for IDeA when connected to us or 40 engines for IDeA rent (connect to your Aquarium). Also, works are carried out to optimize and increase the speed of the engines. Available engines for the IA (connects to the Aquarium, Chessbase and Fritz) Updated site design. http://superchess.wix.com/chesscomp Our prices are surprisingly low, go to the site, use a unique and quality product!

Opinion practice correspondence chessplayer:
Using a supercomputer - what is it? Myth or Reality?! The benefit or misleading?!
I during the three days involved in extreme tests 40 engines to the limit of equipment and user. Conducted different methods of analysis in the shell Aquarium. The final analysis of the work certainly deserves attention and further study of this option.
Supercomputer provides new opportunities, in fact represents the analytical laboratory, where much depends on the user. Noticeably wider opportunities disclosed Aquarium, its effective use.
Incredibly easy to make the connection of the engine, just the touch of a button and have all the required settings.
When using a supercomputer running engines are constantly visible in the aquarium, and it is important that the work and manage you have to yourself.
What good and that problems arise and how to avoid them?!
I during this test significantly deepen and expand their projects, find new opportunities in the individual opening variations. When analyzing the current tournament position is necessary to continue, while spending much less time. Acquired experience with a large number of engines in the Aquarium encouraged to seek more acceptable options, as well as to study possibilities not previously claimed. There is hardly a player that will negatively to treat this. Is it just lazy and envious.

Problems arise and need to know they to use the supercomputer.
1. Bad Internet. I with this directly encountered, and only he is not allowed to experience the rave emotions. I have a bad internet - modem connection. Although, emphasize, the overall impression is positive. There are questions about the use of modern equipment that was good bandwidth and high speed external network. This will not "crash" of engines and they are all currently available.
2. Problems Aquarium. And I had to decided arised troubles. But, most importantly, they proceeded due to poor internet. When an internal network connection to the Aquarium of such problems did not arise. Thus, it was found that the shell is not the main cause of failures in the supercomputer, namely bad internet culprit "of all evils."
3. The inability or rather unwillingness to improve of user. This reason may be, therefore, "pessimists" Aquarium advise first understand their intentions to work in the shell.
The correctness of the choice will often depend on the chess skills.

Who does not have problems under item №1 - can safely take advantage of opportunities!
Project organizers supercomputer make a connection to the Internet and "not very good" to its aquarium on 50 engines engine + IA. Besides, now experiencing a new way to connect to users with bad internet. So what is the future of this project.

Since my problems were of them will not leave, I would like to make your own notes on this subject.
The best option when working in a project with a lot of problems (I had 100-odd thousand). They can generate the most IDeA of exhibiting a large number of roots or send to interested parties from the IDeA database. This project can be somehow debut or very problematic position. But we must not forget that control the "quality" of work remains to be late and be sure to polish the analysis.
Not a bad option - working in two projects. They are easy to control, load engines is constant and failures should not be.
When working in several projects (tried to 5-10) need to constantly adjust the process. Bad if minimaxes intersect. And constant rearrangements-change also do not add to stability. There may be some "downtime" in the analysis. But it's better to let them be, than had bugs. But here, a large effect can be achieved, but the user is "in the soap." If the trees are small in size, the effect will be much higher, since minimaxes will pass very quickly.

When your Aquarium hang (by the way, in the background analysis continues!), it is desirable to shut the engines work, and then squeeze the projects - to restart the program. You can delete data IA (and the contents of folders infinite_analysis.ldb_data infinite_analysis $ 1.ldb_data).
Perhaps there is the influence of large trees, while during deceleration analysis are not talking to them. Recording goes on infinite_analysis file, and it really matter.
On your computer, it is necessary to leave one core is not busy.
Using more than 50 engines considerably hinders work.

I emphasize that in a good online mode can be a little different. Those problems that I listed just will not.
Using a supercomputer can almost all players - correspondence chessplayers, professional chessplayers, coaches and fans of analysis. The main thing - to set reasonable goals for this.
We hope for developers and programmers to improve the Aquarium shell and look forward to the new version!

I had the opportunity to lay out an interesting analysis, since the game correspondence ended and client allowed to lay out analysis.
I have been approached with a request to review the two positions of the same party.

I need to check with the original position:
2k2b1r / p4p2 / 2n1pP2 / 1q4r1 / NpRQ4 / 6P1 / 1P3P1P / R5K1 b - - 0 23
And also, from the position after 16 white stroke (I chose the correct option?)
2kr1b1r / pb1n1p2 / 1q2pP2 / 2pP2B1 / Npp5 / 6P1 / PP3PBP / R2Q1RK1 b - - 0 16

So I analyzed the two key positions in the game after the current 23. Qd4 and opening after 16 Na4. I conducted the analysis on 40 engines for IDeA and 1 engine for IA (representing approximately 80% of the total performance of our supercomputer), the analysis lasted 1 day, the settings in IDeA 60 seconds. and 25 ply, wait 120 seconds. was built the tree 22000 positions, I control an analysis of 2.5-3 hours in the evening, half an hour in the morning and 2.5-3 hours during the day and in the evening (total 6 hours). Position after 23. Qd4 counted in all cases to a draw, draw in the pawn ending, draw in the light figure endgame (bishop against knight and pawns are very few) and so on.
Position after 16. Na4 (Botvinnik variation) I was somewhat frightened stroke number (just opening, only 16 move), but I underestimated the power of a supercomputer. Now, I think the position after 16. Na4 closed for discussion, all lines calculated to 0.00. :shock: To do draw, there are two moves 16 ...Qa6 and 16 ...Qb5.
I lay out analysis pgn, that moved his hands, the best + second branches, and trees in the Aquarium aqt format + trees Aquarium infinite analysis.

In our project, many revolutionary news.
Initial tests went Aquarium 2016. The program is great! Easily and naturally cope with a large number of engines, while experiencing a maximum of 50 engines. No difference that 5 that 50! The shell is very fast, no brakes and no glitches, and the program stores the responsiveness, you can switch between tabs, in the notation in the text box, no problem! Minimax is now run much faster and painless. Due to the rapid implementation of operations increased efficiency, the trees are built much faster. In general, the program makes a very good impression!

We also increased the number of engines for the IDeA for rent - up to 50 engines. Price € 25, or $ 30 for 5 days! Increased stability of the engines, the efficiency achieved in 90-95%! The service is very pleasant to those who have the Aquarium 2016, it works just fine! Video how to connect the engines. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q832sWi9Mgw

Attention! We tested the 16-core (32 threads) server
(Dual Intel Xeon E5-2670). Show results 24000 k / Ns in the initial position on Stockfish. Soon you will be able to use it for the analysis of IA for € 8, or $ 10 per day (3 days - a minimum number of days of use). We connect our engine to your Aquarium or Chessbase program, it works just fine!

See all the updates on our website http://superchess.wix.com/chesscomp#!--2/c8gk

Thanks to the new Aquarium 2016 the project is entering a new, higher level. We will not rest on our laurels. The plans for the summer - an increase in the number of engines for the IDeA, as well as the purchase of more than one server.
Use our services, I am sure you will be satisfied! :D

Here is a review on the use of 50 cores supercomputer GM Alexei Kornev, raiting FIDE 2550+, he also plays in correspondence tournaments.

Review the use of 50 cores supercomputer.

Recently I used 50 engines the supercomputer to analyze a debut position. As I see it in the use of supercomputer have both advantages and disadvantages. I will try to list the positive side and the negative and thus do not miss anything.

advantages

1. Very good service support. Consultation on Skype to answer all the questions.
2. If the lease 50 engines for 5 days (1250 rubles), then the price is not high. I would even say it is undervalued. 1250 rubles for 5 days - it is 250 rubles per day, or slightly more than 10 rubles per hour. I do not know what benefit the project's authors, but I think they need to spend more on electric power.
3. High quality analysis. Even a very complicated position (where to exchange one pair of pieces and pawns) per day can be analyzed very deeply. And once it becomes clear - here there is nothing, but in these positions 3-4, which occurred during analysis can fight for an advantage.
4. I think this service will be irreplaceable for GM in 2550 and beyond. To build a powerful opening repertoire. And also for correspondence chess players who want to have a rating of more than 2500 on ICCF.

disadvantages

1. Again the price. If we do not take wholesale 5 days. That price is not so small. For example, to analyze the position for you in 24 hours you have to pay 750 rubles. Conclusion - we must learn to use the Aquarium, have enough positions for analysis, and then take a supercomputer for rent for 5 days (see paragraph 2 of advantages.).
2. The draft is based on the program "Aquarium". And it is not too friendly to users, its interface is not intuitive. And if you are not familiar with it, then you have to spend enough time to study it.
3. If you are not GM for 2500 (or do not want them to be), or do not play in tournaments in absentia, then use this service, it's like to shoot out of a cannon on the wheel. For those who play in the open tournament will suffice infinite analysis in any the chess shells.

Good news!
Put into operation the second Dual Intel Xeon E5-2670!
It increased the number of engines for the IDeA (now from 50 to 70 engines for rent!).
70 engines work well only in the Aquarium 2016.

Our supercomputer continues work.
We replaced the engine in the IDeA on Stockfish 8, and to use the accelerated IA 100% clone Stockfish 8 on assembler - Pedantfish. On our server Dual Xeon E5-2670 speed of 27400 k / Ns in the starting position.
Now we continue to work on improving the engines for IDeA. Now all engines received the same maximum hash - 512mb, and the engines are aligned for speed, which makes the job more balanced supercomputer.

Our supercomputer has become more compact and more powerful engines IDeA number has remained the same - 50 pieces, but significantly increased the speed of the engines, now each engine uses 1 physical core. Now - 50 cores (82 threads)!
Minimum speed engines from 1200 to 1400 k / Ns in the starting position, the maximum speed of from 1450 to 1700 k / Ns in the starting position.

For IA (infinite analysis) available servers Dual Xeon E5-2670 3,0 GHz 16 cores, 32 threads in the starting position of 30000 kN / s. Hash engines 4096Mb. Connected to the engines 6-piece Syzygy bases.
​Attention! We have registered domain and now the address of our site http://www.superchess.org
English section http://www.superchess.org/--2-c8gk
Some time the site will be available at the old address.

There is no limit to perfection!
And we continue to improve our project.
Today, good news for those of our customers who use servers for IA (infinite analysis). Now they can reboot the engine independently with the help of the remote access program - Supremo. This provides 24/7 and 100% access to the engine without contacting technical support.

Our project continues to develop and improve.Attention! Users of 50 IDeA engines got the opportunity reloading engines. This provides 24-hour and full control over the engines.
