Differences between Shredder12 and Shredder Classic 4?

Post by Volker Pittlik » Wed Oct 14, 2009 7:08 am

There is a demo version of Shredder Classic 4 on the Shredder website. It says it is
...a slightly restricted test version of the world champion chess program... .
Does anyone know what this restrictions in comparison to Shredder 12 are? I'm only interested in the engine, especially in playing strength when using one core only.

The Classic 4 engine is on my list to be tested. Actually I have not a single game played, but out of some "estimations" I think it is about 200 Elo below S12 which is basically Shredder 10 strength (or Spike 1.2). Again, the next time I am testing an Engine it will be most likely Shredder Classic 4.
Maybe I have a number ofter the weekend

After the impressive number of 32 blitz games it seems to be a pretty strong program:

to less games, to less time, I know... In poker I call with much worse chances to be right.

The restrictions in the demo version are more to do with what you can do with the interface than any limitations with the engine AFAIK.

For instance you cannot save games or export opening books with the demo version. As far as the difference between the Shredder 12 and Shredder Classic 4 engines goes, I think the only difference is in the speed of it's calculation. The website claims that the Classic engine has exactly the same 'knowledge' as it's bigger brothers.

Just how great the loss in speed is, I have no idea. Additionally neither the classic version or shredder includes a 64 bit engine or MP support. That only comes with Deep Shreddder.
