Brand new Komodo 12 now available

This is what the chess world has been waiting for: one of the strongest chess engines in the world, but with access to the most important AI enhancement of recent times: Komodo 12 can be switched to a Monte Carlo search, very similar to the one employed by AlphaZero. And now it can be yours.

This engine achieves over 3000 Elo, but more importantly, it plays more aggressively and more human-like. Komodo Monte Carlo is not primarily concerned with material advantage and provides a completely new strategic evaluation of the game.

The engine behaves quite differently in analysis: within a short time it plays a whole series of games against itself and comes to its evaluations based on the results of these games. In playing strength, the Monte Carlo version is not yet up there with the classical Komodo 12. But what is interesting is that the style of the two versions is quite different: the Monte Carlo version plays clearly more aggressively and also bases its play less on the material balance on the board.

Komodo 12 is thus two things: an absolutely top program and an exciting analysis partner, which will often surprise you with its suggestions and introduce you to interesting ideas!

Mega Database 2018

The exclusive annotated database. Contains more than 7.8 millions games from 1560 to 2017 in the highest ChessBase quality standard. 71,000 games contain commentary from top players, with ChessBase opening classification with more than 100,000 key positions, direct access to players, tournaments, middlegame themes, endgames. The largest topclass annotated database in the world. The most recent games of the database are from the middle of October 2017. Mega 2018 also features a new edition of the playerbase (requires ChessBase 14, 13 or 12). As usual, this is where most of the work was done. As the player index now contains already more than 330,000 entries, it made sense to use an adapted playerbase which includes about 430,000 names. Doing this, the photo database was extended as well to now contain 37,000 pictures.

Incl. Online Mega-Update 2018: With ChessBase 14, 13 or 12 you can download games for Mega 2018 for the whole year, a total of approximately 250,000! That means your Mega 2018 will remain up to date from January to December.
