Hi,
One tester in talkchess claimed Eth NNUE is +50 elo better than SF, which is doubious.

Regards,

Unless I'm missing something they're saying that a commercial chess engine is only worth buying if it's at least 50 Elo better than Stockfish, not that Ethereal is indeed better.

A few pages later Andrew Grant (the primary Ethereal author) writes that Ethereal running on 28 threads will probably lose against Stockfish running on 4 cores (threads?).

Elo doesn't grow on trees at current stockfish level. As you can see on fishtest it is a struggle to even get a few elos a week despite having 2000 cores and thousands of trial and error. Even copying the stockfish code and adding 50 elo on it would be feat on itself let alone making an original one.
