On 9x9 you should be getting about 100k light playouts per second per core on a recent core i7.  I was getting almost that many in 2008, and libego was faster.

Thanks for the info all.

Does a fast open-source program exist which uses only light playouts? If there would be one I could get some reliable info on the amount of playouts per second I _should_ be getting. The only open-source I've found is Pachi and that isn't suitable for that purpose.

I considered the playout method before asking but I rejected it because I didn't think it was any good at figuring out life/death. Apparently this is not the case so seems like that's what I'm going to be doing.
