Re: What about LG google nexus 5 ?

Just noticed that since some of the Android apps now run SF4 that there is a slight decrease in n/s when compared to SF3. For example DroidFish now with SF4 running on a Samsung Galaxy Note II climbs only to 693kn/s also noticed the same effect on other apps that run StockFish.

Re: benchmark new smartphones: huawei ascend p6

iPhone 5s, 64 bits, iOS 7 Stockfish 1152 KN/s Sounds really good. I want that phone. To get a perspective of how much faster the new CPU is: Can someone please benchmark the same SF version on an iPhone 5?

Re: benchmark new smartphones: huawei ascend p6

Apple's latest iOS development kit contains two separate 4-inch iPhone simulators; "iPhone Retina (4-inch)" and "iPhone Retina (4-inch 64-bit)". Stockfish is only about 5% faster in the 64-bit simulator. Correction: It's actually about 35% faster. I just hadn't figured out how to compile a proper 6...

Re: Are Not the Moderator elections overdue?

I have liked the current mod team. Please try and stay for another term and don't let a tell tale kid ruin it. I learnt long time ago that it is not wise to be the "tell tale" kid at kindergarten.

Re: An unusual chess set

An advertisement for an unusual, meta-stable chess set which is new to me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VczLeRYtqMw Perhaps if one drinks enough pre-game alcohol, the pieces will appear to stand still. At least if you a winning, your opponent cant knock the table and cause the position to scramble.
