But what about Deep Fritz 15? There is no such thing, because Fritz 15 is already a multiprocessor version! Theoretically, the Fritz 15 engine can use the computing power of up to 2048 cores simultaneously.

Fritz 15 – new Fritz, new friend

Enjoy many exciting hours with your new training partner: Fritz 15! The completely reworked “friend” mode makes Fritz 15 the ideal training partner. During the course of a game, Fritz is able to constantly tailor its level to your playing strength and to how much time you are using. The program can give you a sign when a tactical opportunity presents itself, or point out typical mistakes to help you improve.

Another exciting element is the new evaluation function that analyzes your playing skill throughout the game. Where are your strengths, where are your weaknesses? The opening? Middlegame? Or perhaps the endgame? Fritz 15 gives you an Elo rating for all three phases! You definitely need to see this!

Improve your conversion technique

“I should have won that!” How often have you been frustrated after playing a good game of blitz on that somehow went wrong? Stoke your curiosity and find out what could have been with Fritz 15 – Fritz can now show you what you missed right after the game. You can, of course, also try to find the way to win yourself using the handy exercise function – an approach certain to boost your own conversion technique and playchess Elo!

New author, new engine

Vasik Rajlich is new to the Fritz team. The American shook up the world of computer chess just a few years ago, reaching the top with his program, “Rybka”. He is the author of the new Fritz 15 engine, so there’s no question that it will be one of the world’s strongest. The Fritz 15 engine is a multiprocessor version and can theoretically use up to 2048 cores!

"Video" – the ChessBase video library

The new ChessBase Video Library is the comprehensive web archive of all chess broadcasts shown on the Playchess server during the last years. It includes highlights such as Daniel King's "Power Play" show, Karsten Müller's "Endgame Magic Show" or TV ChessBase. Currently about 300 videos are online and the number is constantly growing! Highly recommended: "Move by move" with Daniel King or Simon Williams.

Repertoire training

What is the best way to remember all the lines of your opening repertoire? By playing them on the board! That is one idea behind the new interactive "Openings" tool: you first enter the lines of your repertoire (the server automatically saves your repertoire for later sessions) and then you can actively practice the lines – move by move.

But that is not all: when entering your repertoire the Live Book helps you with an extensive and up-to-date overview of all opening systems including statistical evaluations! Chances are good that you will soon discover attractive alternatives to your current repertoire in the Live Book. Have a look at it! Stay curious and enlarge your opening knowledge in a playful way.

My server games and more

"Shall I show you my games?" With the MyGames Cloud and a browser this is a matter of seconds. Just log on to "MyGames" and you will get a list of your games. For example, you will find all the games you played with your account on Playchess. If you have ChessBase 13 the databases from your ChessBase cloud will also automatically be offered to you!

"Training" - Sac, sac, mate!

Practice makes perfect! 90% of all chess games are decided through tactics. Improve your tactical power with the new Tactics App! More than 34,000 training tasks await you – a varied mix from one-movers to more complicated tests with quiet moves! Here you can see all patterns and tricks you might encounter during your next tournament game.

"Live Database" – immediate access to eight million games

The "Live Database" offers access to games from the whole history of chess up to the most recent grandmaster games. Enter moves of a variation on the board and one mouse click tells you which masters play this line. The opening book tells you which moves are the theoretical mainlines and where promising sidelines are hidden!

Always up-to-date: every week the Live Database is updated with the newest games. You don't have to worry about editing the games or updating your database. Every year more than 200,000 games are added to the Live Database, and you will probably not even notice when it happens!
