But other engines do better: Stockfish for example.

Crafty also uses multiple cores efficiently and can hits amazingly high NPS, but I haven't tried it on this 32 core box.

Texel scales brilliantly
Texel is also one of a few engines that can actually use all 128 cores on that computer, assuming you compile it with cluster support.
