Re: benchmark new smartphones:

Many mobile phones with glass backside do not have QI . The z2 force has a plastic screen. Indeed. That helps it to survive when it falls down. And backside is Metall.

Re: Best Style/Strength Ratio?

What do you think about engine's style? Apparently computer chess enthusiasts can be separated into three groups: 1. The largest group measures success on "elo" points. New programmers are introduced to this concept and dedicate their time to improving their engine's performance. By far, the larges...

Re: Best Style/Strength Ratio?
