 1 GB hardware with 1min per move might have comparable strength of pentium III running in 15 years ago.Current SF with standard time control and optimum opening book, such as TCEC hardware is extremely unlikely to be beaten ( >95% draw rate against best available engines). In fact current top engines reach to almost perfection (100% draw would be perfect play by both sides)

You don't need access to alpha, simply run the fish at pick against the crippled one and see what happen.
the thing is that machine learning is huge and will keep growing, Elon Musk for instance just resign from the OpenAl board not to have a conflict with the tesla team.
so I find it very odd for the alpha team to tinker with the fish at all, and wonder WHY they did? that's all to it.

No, not when it is a 64 thread monster (probably a 32 core hyperthreading machine). This is comparable to 1 thread running for 64 minutes.
