Deep Fritz 14: Faster, better, cheaper

The latest and greatest version of Deep Fritz is out, and gone are the 'standard' and 'deep' versions. Recognizing that single-processor engines are a thing of the past – the new Fritz comes as a powerful multi-processor version right from the get-go. Since Deep Fritz is now the standard, we have also brought down the price to the standard one, but with all the features and perks only Deep Fritz had.

Deep Fritz 14 features a 64-bit engine that supports up to eight processor cores simultaneously. However, that's where the similarities end, as the engine itself has been completely redesigned and packs almost 100 Elo points more than the previous version, placing Deep Fritz 14 amongst the strongest chess programs in the world.

Accompanying the new engine is a giant hand-made opening book by openings expert and openings book designer: Alexander Kure, with over four million positions. This opening book is not a generic tree, and includes carefully thought out evaluations as well as original analysis.

Optimized for Windows 8.1: the 64-bit program interface of Deep Fritz 14 runs faster and more fluidly on the latest versions of Windows. Naturally, the new version retains all of the well-known playing, training and analysis functions that have made Fritz the most popular chess program in the world.

Premium Playchess

Premium Playchess experience: Deep Fritz 14 includes a free six-month Premium Membership to the Playchess.com server allowing you to tune in to exciting live commentary of world-class tournaments, or take part in training sessions with frontrunner coaches such as Grandmaster Daniel King, Klaus Bischoff, Maurice Ashley, Dr. Karsten Müller and many more.

Let’s Check

Deep Fritz 14 also brings all the powerful new functions introduced and fine-tuned in the last couple of years. Only the best is good enough. Deep Fritz 14 gives you access to “Let's Check”*, the world's largest database packed with high-quality analysis. Over 200 million positions annotated with deep engine calculations are saved on the Let's Check server, with more being added every day. If you want to know what to think of a particular opening position, take a look on Let's Check and find out in seconds what it would take your PC hours to uncover.

Example of Let's Check in action. The brown depths on the bottom right indicate an engine
that has analyzed the position for at least an hour continuously.

Cloud Engines

Deep Fritz also brings the latest Cloud Engine functions, allowing you to access your engines from a remote computer, lend it out, or even rent the use of powerful third-party computers in case you need more processor power than you have.

Cloud engines can be your own or those of others. Set up private remote connections
that only you can see.

3D board

Although most users are content to use the standard 2D board, it is never quite the same thing as playing on a live chessboard. If you miss that, or would like to play games in the full 3D experience (even on Playchess), Deep Fritz has a peerless 3D board to enjoy. Bear in mind performance may and will be limited to your computer’s graphic possibilities, though the requirements are fairly mainstream by today’s standards.

A look at the gorgeous 3D board. Please note it can be set to full screen as well.

  • Completely redesigned 64 Bit – Deep Fritz Engine (and 32 Bit Engine)
  • 64 Bit- and 32 Bit program interface
  • Premium membership to Playchess.com (six months)

Can you use cloud engines in the Engine Room? e.g. 3 or 4 computers acting as a single engine?
