Default Crafty Win32 performance

Hi - The Crafty exe's in the ftp.cis.uab.edu/pub/hyatt/v19
directory run much faster (about twice as fast) as a version build from the
same version source code using Visual Studio V6 or V7 (.Net).

This is based on the use of the 'bench' command.

Robert:

1. What compiler was used for the 'fast' Win32 binaries?

2. What make file options?

3. What are the suggested best SMP settings for a Pentium 4 HT machine
(2.6Ghz)?

Thanks! Kym

Are you sure you are compiling it in release mode and not in debug mode?

They were compiled by Eugene Nalimov at microsoft. Eugene is in
the MSVC compiler group, and uses whatever they have that produces
the fastest code. The compiler he uses is what you will have _next_
year.


2. What make file options?


No idea, but it is doubtful they would apply to current compilers.

mt=2. -DCPUS=2 -DSMP in the makefile (mt=2 is a crafty.rc file
command of course)




Thanks! Kym

I use the nmake command line - so it is 'release'.
