with the recend multi-thread code and multi-core hardawre, what sould run
faster than before ? Just game/match analysis and rollouts or even
evaluation ?

In other words, gnubg will run game/match analysis and rollouts faster,
but will
it play faster ? Will the tutor be faster ?

My understanding (from previous posts) is that the answer is no, but since
like the answer to be yes, I want to be sure :))

The answer is no. I went for the quick approach of splitting up big tasks (moves in a game and trials in the rollout), the other idea of multi-threading the evaluations sounds great (as everything would be quicker), it's just a whole lot more complicated/likely not to work.

I could take a look when I've a got a sec, I've got a feeling that they might use eval functions that are already used in the rollouts, so it might not be easy.
