Crafty finds mate-in-6 in less than one second. So I'm confused by "outperform".
1) I don't think that Crafty version existed 12 years ago.
2) I don't think Gothic Vortex was SMP, and even if it was CPU's with 20 cores must have been really rare at that time.
3) Clock speeds might also have been a bit lower, then.

Yes, I now see that I responded to posts from 2007. :wink: Why supersharp77 decided to resurrect a twelve-year-old thread is beyond me, but I should have paid closer attention to the dates.

I agree about clock speeds and Crafty versions, but would like to point out that my search was not multi-threaded; I used mt = 1. :D

Ah OK. I was fooled by the '20 threads' in the initial line. :oops:
