If you want engine with different style try Junior or Thinker. All other engines are too similar to one another.

AMD Bulldozer - first benchmarks. Chess enthusiast's choice?

According to http://www.pcgameshardware.de/aid,83197 ... /CPU/News/ new generation of AMD processors is highly competitive. I wonder if it will become "best CPU for chess" at least for some time after the release.
