Deep Fritz 13
Chess programs have been high-performance utilities for a long time now –
the higher your system performance, the greater the value they will be to you.
But multi-processor systems only work if you have the “deep” version
of a chess engine, because it is only then that the program can make use of
multiple processor cores in parallel. Things are no different with the new Deep
Fritz 13: on a dual-core computer the engine is already approx. 60% faster than
the regular Fritz 13.
World premiere: the ChessBase Engine Cloud
Deep Fritz 13 introduces the innovative “ChessBase Engine Cloud”
and revolutionises the way we work with system resources. This new function
makes it possible, for the very first time, to run deep position analysis, blunder
searches, engine matches, etc. using engines located on remote computers, instead
of overloading your own system. To you it looks like you are working on your
own computer – it does not matter whether the engines are running on a
separate machine right next to you in your study, on the office computer or
in a computer centre in Australia.
High-end for everybody!
If you own a number of computers you can run all your engines on all of them
and harness the full processing power on a single PC. Or you can rent out your
machines to other users via the “Cloud”. This is an especially exciting
development for owners of high-performance computers or clusters. But the key
point is: you can rent processing power from third parties and turn your little
notebook or your “old faithful” into a tactical giant and strategic
monster at the click of a button!
Join the community! “Let’s Check” is a revolutionary new
feature of ChessBase that will change the chess world. With it Fritz users can
join a world-wide community that is putting together a giant knowledge base
for chess. Using Let’s Check while watching top games live on the Playchess
server becomes an experience in itself. Not only do you have the very latest
openings and statistics at your disposal, you can also see the results of the
most powerful computers and engines that are logged into the server –
total information on any computer, at the blink of an eye.
