I recently had to compile Stockfish from the latest source due to some problems with the official windows binary posted on the website. The latest source in GitHub fixes the problem (there was "info score mate 0" in the output when there was no mate and no "cp") but my build with MS Visual Studio 2017 compiler with optimizations for speed, etc is not as fast as the official binary (bench is lower). I tried to build the official source code that comes with the binary and had the same result - the performance is not that great. Could you please publish the compiler that is used for windows build and the optimization parameters?
Thank you!
