Due to Wikipedia: Endgame tablebase the Lomonosov endgame tablebase is still the biggest tablebase (with a size of 140TB). Now this tablebase was computed in the year 2012 with the Lomonosov 1 (Top500-list November 2012, rank 26). The Lomonosov 1 had 78.660 cores with ~900 TFlop/s (peak: 1.700 TFlop/s). When I have a look on the most recent Top500-List (June 2016) I see that the Lomonosov 2 is ranked 41 in the world with ~2.100 TFlop/s (peak: ~2.900 TFlop/s), the No1-ranked super-computer has 93.000 TFlop/s.
So I wonder why the Lomonosov-tablebase after 4 years still is the biggest tablebase. Shouldn't it be easy with the growing computer-power to calculate an 8-men-tablebase? Or is the step from 7 to 8 just too big? Maybe the size would go up exponentially so that standard-storage-systems just cannot handle this?
Would appreciate all informations about this theme. Thanks in advance!
