Re: Test position and great long game by SF

Stockfish excels at these king attacks, very impressive. "My" Houdini 4 went down in these kind of attacks more than once at playchess, having no clue

Re: WCCC 2013 in Yokohama

6 Participants, this is laughable. I can't imagine anybody takes this serious anymore.

Re: Strange behaviour in Windows 8

Disabling speedstep didn't resolve the issue, but a BIOS update did. Thanks all again.

Process explores shows normal behavior; 0-1% idle and 100% when running the engine. Thanks for directing me to this utility.

Re: Strange behaviour in Windows 8

The problem lies somewhere in the task manager itself as even in idle the reported speed (which is 1600MHz) fluctuates between 0.4 and 1.5 GHz. Running an engine, the reported clockspeed is between 2 and 4.4 GHz. I have no idea what is causing this.
CPU-Z shows the correct value.
