LeelaChessZero

LeelaChessZero (lc0 / lczero) is a chess engine automated vian neural networks. This test profile can be used for OpenCL, CUDA + cuDNN, and BLAS (CPU-based) benchmarking.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark lczero.

Analyze Test Configuration:

LeelaChessZero 0.26

Backend: BLAS

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 629 public results since 6 September 2020 with the latest data as of 4 May 2021.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
