According to ipmanchess, the user noobpwnftw has a computer of 384 cores/threads for some years. His result stayed in the first place for long time:

http://ipmanchess.yolasite.com/amd---in ... -bench.php

He (noobpwnftw) has never told about his name but we have known:
- He is the owner of Chessdbcn
- He has used a strong computer (perhaps the one with 384 cores/threads) with 1TB RAM to generate Syzygy 7 men in 6 months

I remember the chessdb website ( https://chess-db.com/ ) showed that 8-piece egtb was under generation. It was stuck at 2% for a an age though.

Interesting. The guy at the top of the list. I am glad his cores are doing something for chess.

You are right. Actually I mean there’s almost no personal details. I want to write a short instruction about him but gave up.

His system has more than 30.000 cpu.

Bojun Guo (Noobpwnftw) is a mystic person. I asked some questions about him at Stockfish forum. But there is very little information about him.

My theory about him is that he is a bitcoin millionaire trying to build Skynet. :D
