Re: Houdini 6 has been released

Great news on Houdini 6's release. I'm really not trying to be awkward, but is it true H6 is "the strongest engine" and "the strongest engine money can buy" ? Are you claiming it's stronger than the latest ASMfish? (That would be amazing if true) My reading here is that no claim is made that H6 is ...

Re: Question for Graham

Gerhard, thanks for your posts. I bought Shredder Classic 5 because I wanted the latest Shredder GUI. I was so impressed with the SC5 engine that I upgraded to Deep Shredder 13!

Question for Graham

Any possibility that Shredder Classic 5 will be tested? I ask because it's surprisingly strong. My guess is it's similar to Komodo 4 in strength.

Is Kasparov joking.
More than 10 years free chess-playing programs are better than Deep Blue. (Ryka 1.0, Fruit 2.2.1 etc...)

Re: In case you missed it: SSDF, shiny new hardware...

SSDF historically accepted only engines with an openings book. Back in the day, we (users) didn't make a big distinction between engines and books.
