http://www.cruxis.com/chess/houdini.htm#Split_DepthThe Split_Depth parameter defines the minimum depth at which work will be split between cores. This parameter can impact the speed of the engine (nodes per second) and should be fine-tuned to get the best performance out of your hardware.
The default value 10 is tuned for quad Core i5/i7 systems, but on other systems it may be advantageous to increase this to 12 or 13. To select the best Split_Depth for your system you should analyze some positions for a fixed duration (e.g. 30 seconds) and measure the average nodes/second. Do this for all values of Split_Depth between 10 and 14, and keep the value that produces the highest average node speed.
