Re: Status Quo 2016-1 , Stockfish - Komodo

The Fritz 15 GUI adjudication options are located in the File-Options-Game tab. If you read the help file located at :

http://help.chessbase.com/Fritz/15/Eng/ ... 000065.htm

you can see some of the specifics. Unfortunately I do not see any details on the Draw option.

Re: Interesting redesigned "friend" mode in Fritz

I see nothing wrong with Graham Banks post at all.

I have been a frequent customer of ChessCentral. This is not the first time that ChessCentral has advertised new ChessBase products before they have appeared on the Chessbase site.

Re: Interesting redesigned "friend" mode in Fritz

You see it as a flagrant violation, etc; I see it as info I had not and so useful to me for my purchase decisions. Neither are CB products pieces of crap. If they were, CB would be dead long ago. In any case Graham does not get a cent for telling us about that. You have been rude and spited a mispl...

Re: chessbomb.com is now using Stockfish 140127: > DD ???

So you're saying Stockfish has gained around 30(!) rating points between the time DD came out and now, which is only a couple of weeks?
Stockfish DD was released on Nov 29, 2013. That's about 8 weeks ago :D

Re: Possible draw bug in Chessbase Houdini 4 GUI with Syzygy

Yes this sounds familiar. Houdart recommends removal of the GUI Syszgy path and use only the engine path.

Re: Video on how hypethreading works in a Intel CPU.

The only way to test HT vs no-HT is by using two identical systems, one with HT=ON and one with HT=OFF (at BIOS level) i.e. a raw match between 4 real cores and 8 logical cores. I totally agree With HT=ON, a 4 thread engine will fire 4/8 logical cores For e.g. 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A or it could even be 1A,...
