300,000,000 nps ?

While adding code to display nodes per second for each bench position in the Honey family of engines:

As an example with current-dev-SF

I noticed this position due to the high nps count.
( Note: I know it is stupid position to include in benchmark - but that's not my call - it is SF benchmark position #37, thus the '?' in my subject heading, it's not a position you would ever be concerned about in a real game)


So I ran it with weakfish and ....

Your hardware is faster than Deep Blue.

Try faster engine like Houdini 6! It has 50% higher NPS should be 450 000 000 easily :) . Also Crafty and Deep Fritz 12 have very high speed. SF is only average in node speed.
