I'm implementing multi-thread in my engine but I think I'm not getting the expected performance boost. Below are the results from the initial position to depth 10. The single thread version takes 5288ms to finish and the multi-thread takes 3494ms. Are the results ok or should I expect more performance?

    For multi-threading to work properly, each CPU must always have something to do. How do you ensure that? Commented Jun 19, 2020 at 13:32

    I'm more concerned about the fact that your NPS tanked, Can you give more details about your architecture? Commented Jun 26, 2020 at 13:22
  • I think the community needs more details (computer specifications, programming language, etc.) in order to be able to answer your question.
