The tournament will be run from an Amazon Web Services server farm located in Northern Virginia.

Each engine will utilize its own dedicated AWS virtualized instance of a hyperthreaded Intel Xeon E5-2666 v3 2.90 GHz (two processors each with 18 cores) with 60.0 GB RAM running on Windows Server 2016 Data Center Edition.


Thanks Vincent...

Sorry, I missed including these hardware specs in my original post, and it's one of the more interesting parts of the project.

After setting-up and configuring one compute optimized instance...to ensure that each server is 100% identical I simply generated 9 more from that one single Amazon machine image. We're using some simple powershell scripts to publish the pgn's via http and Amazon elastic block storage, where chess.com's 'Live' chess servers can pick it up and broadcast it on chess.com/TV.

I know the time controls are somewhat fast compared to TCEC, etc. but with each engine utilizing AWS and such processing power, I'm confident we'll see some very high quality games anyway.

Come November, I hope we can drag some of you away from TCEC to watch this event!
