Lately I've been wondering what could be maximum Elo achieved by a computer. I mean, we have super-computers, give super computer (1st in the world) chess program and let it play, it will probably pre-calculate first 30 (or maybe 50) moves within a second.
I went Googling and this site offered, kind of answer, particularly this one: https://chess.stackexchange.com/a/5252
Answer shortly was:
Given these assumptions, the machine will max out at about 3351 ELO1, where if it wins, its Elo will increase by less than half a point (+0.49 to 3351.49), which will be discarded (rounded down to 3351).
Okay, so there's 3351 Elo, which currently maxxed out value. Is there any other value that I could absolutely assign to human as well as computers? I don't want to sound cocky, but I'd really like to compare power of my processor to the one of human brain. Of course I know that processors as fast as human brain will come within 40 years and don't exist now. But I mean, I want to measure and compare on how my computer performs compared to champions. In absolute values, so it's not just limited because it's extremely relative. Just... you know, hard to explain, I hope you understand. Is there such absolute measure for human/computer calculation/prediction?
