The chess engine we use is Stockfish and the Teensy software is called

Putting all this together we have named our chess computer,

'SishFishPi'

Simply call it Quad-Core-Engine or CPU-Engine:

Comparing 1997 Deep Blue to today Quad-Core Machine: According to James Abbott, associate director of the computing center, Deep Blue was an 11.38 gigaflop computer, meaning it could handle about 11 billion operations a second. But an ordinary server with 16 processing cores do around 260 billion operations a second. The additional speed and processing power allows modern chess algorithms to more quickly and efficiently analyze possible moves. But, of course, the goal is to go further. More power, more speed, more depth.

Between 0.24 to 0.76, but it jumps all the time. :) Perhaps call it "Pendulum"?

I like Stockfish. I see no need to change the name.
