in chess programs a faster cpu only adds a few points of elo,also you can hack this doubling the time the computer waits for a move /which is the same that using a 2x faster cpu
the strength of a chess program depends 99% of the code not the cpu
ie you can run chessmaster 2000 on the A500 it plays about 1800 elo strenght, calculate on winuae on a core i7 plays about 1850 elo
