Go up one level in this thread

No nps of alpha-beta and minimax will be almost the same. But the total number
of and the total amount of time will be a much lesser.

>Is the number between minimax nodes/second, devided on number of nodes/second
>for alpha-beta, equal to around five?
>If, for instance, one position in minimax give 1000000 NPS, the same position
>but solved by alpha-beta logic will indicate around 200000 NPS speed?
