Stockomodos: 5 x Stockfish against 5 x Komodo

While waiting for the N7100 to finish the games of the top divisions in Rapidroid, i've tought it may be a good idea to organise a parallel battle including all versions of Stockfish vs all versions of Komodo on one of the devices on hold.

Slightly different from regular Rapidroid configuration, this specific tournament is played on Rockchip 3188 processor only.

As most of the competing engines use multi threads and because it would be insane to keep a 10 inch tablet in a refrigerator during all summer, i could find no other way than reducing the clock speed from 1.4 Ghz to 1.0 Ghz but i didn't want to balance the loss with longer time controls.

This safety against throttling sacrifies a little bit from the quality of the games but still equals an Exynos 4412 running at 1.5 Ghz with time control of 10'+1". Barely acceptable.

Despite low specs, first two rounds using 8 moves openings of TCEC-6 didn't deliver any surprise. It makes 36 games per engine so far and due to huge error margins, i post only the standings for the moment.

It takes about two days to finish one round of 18 games per engine. Therefore i expect to get accurate results in one week and share here.

Maybe i should add Stockfish DD and Komodo 3 as well to reach 6 x 2 = 12 engines.

Stockfish 5      26.0 72.2%
Stockfish 6      26.0 72.2%
Komodo 8         23.5 65.3%
Komodo 9         23.5 65.3%
Stockfish 4      22.0 61.1%
Stockfish 3      18.5 51.4%
Stockfish 2.3.1  17.5 48.6%
BeeKay           13.0 36.1%
Komodo 2.03       7.0 19.4%
Doch32 1.3.4      5.0 13.9%
