Lomonosov Endgame Tablebases

Post by Norbert Raimund Leisner » Fri Jan 15, 2016 8:09 am

Hello,

the ChessOK a.k.a. Convekta support told me:

Lomonosov tablebases - it is 7 pieces engame tablebases. In this year we have plans to make them on DVD - such tablebases may be copied to hard disk on your computer.

Best wishes,

I wonder how much that service (DVDs) would cost?

It will be an big packet. 7 piece is compressed as 100 TBs vs. DVD capacity 17 GBs. 5880 discs :D .
