Stockfish 12 is available, and surprise surprise it includes NNUE (efficiently updatable neural network) out-of-the-box. It would be significantly stronger than its predecessors.

Did anyone try it in deep already? Any thoughts?

not that good in corr chess for now, because the network is not good enough

Now it tops CEGT rating lists, 40/40 and 40/4

On Larsen openning, SF 11 find theoretical moves, not SF 12.

By the way, if SF 11 finds these theoretical moves, it can find it kind of "luckily"... it does not mean with certainty that it finds it "better".

I do not put much faith in CEGT rating lists. What those rating lists measure is engine play v engine play.

Whilst that can be interesting to see if any 'newcomers' or updates are worthy of consideration, for our purposes of correspondence chess analysis, engine v engine play has some major limitations.
