Remarkably, Houdini 4 Pro Tactical still best position solver of the Arasan 18 test set by some margin and almost unrecognisable from the normal engine. A good example of where the Tactical option really works well.

> what means DEVO3 ??


PC Machine name. I run several PC's so each machine has its own individual name. 0-1 were duals, 2-4 are O/C'd Quads and Terminator1 is a dual Xeon 16 core. Makes it easy to identify on which machine games were played for checking back on games.

I have added Nayeem 4.8 score on the quad that falls close to SugaR 2.5 as expected. With Toltec 2 being POPCOUNT the Xeon is the only machine I have supporting this so I've added Toltec 2 that falls close to SugaR 2.5 on the dual Xeon machine, again expected. Komodo 9.42 did not show the massive improvement expected with the bigger hardware. There was not too much improvement left for the Houdini Tactical engines but improve they did and once again Houdini 3 pipped Houdini 4 to lead by 1 position.

DEVO3 = 4 cores Q9550 at 3.53 GHZ
TERMINATOR1 = 16 cores dual Xeon E5-2687w

I've added SugaR 2.6, SF MF110416 64 POPCNT and Sting SF 6.7 64bit, all on the dual Xeon machine. From what I could see of it Sting SF 6.7 64bit was typically 8000to 10000 kN/s down on current Stockfish engines that probably relates to the 2.1.1 engine it was derived from. SF MF110416 64 POPCNT did not quite reach the levels achieved by Houdini but the kN/s was typical of current engines.
