    From now on I have moved up several gears from my old pc to a brand new Acer Aspire X3200 9650
    This has quad-core AMD Phenom 2.30 GHz 2MB Cache and 4GB DDR2 memory.
    I just did the Fritz 11 benchmark test on it with a 512Mb hash table.

    Relative speed = 11.19
    Kilo nodes per second = 5369

    This is about 5 times the speed of my old Pentium 4 2.93GHz 1GB RAM pc.

    I will be using the new pc for analysis of the Correspondence World Championships 1972-75.

    is there a specific fritz 11 benchmark, or is it the same with the independent benchmark?

    how do you put in the hash parameter in the benchmark?

    The benchmark is tested as relative performance to Pentium 3 1.0GHz at 480 KN/s
    You change the engine's hash table size by clicking Engine>Change main engine then adjust the hash table size & run the benchmark test to find the optimum values.

    I don't think the benchmark has anything to do with the hash you've selected. It's probably the same benchmark that can be downloaded and run seperately (even if you don't have fritz), and there's no parameter there.

    these benchmarks are purely about testing the processor power, and hash shouldn't effect that.

    Is your analysis done manually, based on the procedure you explained in another thread, or has this been automated? I believe the game mods have automated software, do you use that? Maybe there is an issue with the Fritz engine not having a UCI inteface?!

    Here's a list of benchmarks with many different processors:

    On the same theme, Korch's latest post refer to a top Fritz choice
    that actually losses.

    and of course no computer have solved the problems I have posted

    I doubt if they ever will.
