Ratings for chess computers

Post by JohnW » Tue Sep 01, 2020 11:50 am

Anyone know of a good place to see ratings for old chess computers like the ones from Mephisto, Fidelity, Novag and Saitek?

Thank you,

John

Hi,

a good place is the SSDF.
I collected around 22.000 games and have my own rating list (most of the games are chess computers vs. humans).
I think SSDF is in the near with the ratings I produced vs. human players (around -30 Elo).
Differences between the chess computers are fully OK.

Another very good place is www.schachcomputer.info. You can find all what you need around the topic chess computers. In my opinion a hightech chess computer web site.

Here the differences between the older chess computers are fully OK too but the ratings are around 140-150 Elo higher as in SSDF or to my private list around 170-180 Elo to high.

And one of the best works a person do in computer chess is the chess computer emu by Franz Huber:

Material for gold seeker /argonouts because the work bei Franz is pure ...
Computer chess gold!

PS: I collected games from the older chess computers since I am 11 years old, now over 40 years (the reason for my very big database).
I like computer chess!

A symbolic Award from my older winboard page where over 200 persons helps to make Winboard stronger. So we gave Tim Mann this Award for a long time. Sure that all have the same opinion for the work Franz Huber do for us.
