Go up one level in this thread


As a spectator, the power of Crafty on a big Opteron was palpable, like a shaved
1969 Dodge Charger with a 426 hemi.  Even when the position was quite
uncomfortable, you could sense that if there was a defense to be found, Crafty
would find it and brick-wall the attack.  This is where one can see that
attention to chess fundamentals in a program really pays off.  That is one of
the things a spectator can definitely appreciate about your project.  It was a
real pleasure to watch.

I look forward to the day when Crafty runs on a 32-way.  That will be some
impressive mechanical advantage.
