  • Komodo 13 thinks like no other chess program. Inspired by AlphaZero
  • Komodo is a three-time computer world chess champion. Whether classical, rapid or blitz chess
  • To enhance your enjoyment we've included the epic "Art of War" E-Book by Sun Tzu, completely re-mastered for the 21st century by ChessCentral
Product Description:
Included on the DVD:

* Improved Komodo 13 multi-processor engine (64 Bit + 32 Bit)
* Fritz 16 program interface
* New Komodo 13 MCTS engine
*6 month ChessBase Premium Account

Komodo 13 thinks like no other chess program. Inspired by AlphaZero, Komodo developers GM Larry Kaufman and Mark Lefler have reinvented their engine from scratch over the last two years. The result speaks for itself: The new Komodo 13 MCTS ("Monte Carlo Tree Search") searches for candidate moves in an incredibly innovative way and finds solutions most engines never see!

Komodo 13 analyzes better than any other chess program. The development of the MCTS technology has paid off especially in combination with "multi-variation mode": In standard computers that have multiple CPUs, Komodo 13 MCTS is the world's best engine for analysing with two or more variations. In addition, Komodo 13 takes on a very human character. In balanced positions, where other engines evaluate as "0.00", Komodo looks more closely: The engine gives preference to the side that has the easier game, for instance, when the opponent must find a whole series of difficult moves to remain equal.

Komodo is a three-time computer world chess champion. Whether classical, rapid or blitz chess, in 2018 Komodo 12 won the Computer Chess World Championships in Stockholm, Sweden in all three disciplines. And Komodo 13 MCTS has significantly improved on multi-CPU systems!

Komodo 13: match winner and analysis partner. As with its predecessor, Komodo 13 comes with two versions of the engine: The standard version continues to be the first choice in the match play against other chess programs. The "MCTS" version, now improved by 350 Elo points compared to Komodo 12, is recommend for everyone interested in discovering variations and detecting mistakes together with Komodo 13.

  • The magician is back! With the latest version of his top chess program, Houdini 5,
  • Houdini 5 particularly exciting is the sheer plethora of ideas it comes up with - the program has all the hallmarks of unbridled creativity.
Product Description:
Houdini 5 brings a rejuvenated and reinvigorated engine to the board, weighing in at a staggering 200 Elo points stronger than Houdini 4! This represents a practically inconceivable jump in playing strength by today's standards.

A decisive factor here is the completely redesigned evaluation function, which has been re-tuned to better take King safety and piece play into account. Houdini's unique playing style is the result of a cunning combination of aggressive playing ideas and healthy positional and strategic understanding. What makes playing and analyzing with Houdini 5 particularly exciting is the sheer plethora of ideas it comes up with - the program has all the hallmarks of unbridled creativity. Where other engines see no way to make progress, or head towards a draw, Houdini not infrequently conjures up hidden and surprising resources!

As opposed to its predecessor, Houdini 5 is more selective when arriving at candidate moves, which enables it to reach higher search depths. This modification pays off in all stages of the game, but particularly so when it comes to the endgame.

Included with Houdini 5:

• Houdini 5 Engine (Standard or Pro)
• The latest Fritz 15 program interface
• Premium membership to playchess.com and Premium for your ChessBase Account (6 months)
• Online access to the world's largest analysis database, "Let's Check." with over 200 million deeply analyzed positions (6 months)

Houdini 6 continues where its predecessor left off, and adds solid 60 Elo points to this formidable engine, once again making Houdini the strongest chess program currently available on the market.

Houdini 6 has been put to the test in various areas and thoroughly refined in all the right places: position evaluation, search, time management and use of the endgame tablebases have been improved, as has parallel processing. Houdini 6 delivers particularly exceptional results on systems with a large number of CPUs, and can run up to 128 threads on high-end hardware.

The enhanced "Tactical mode" transforms Houdini 6 into the most ingenious position solver of all time and improves again on the records held by previous versions in tactical benchmark tests. In addition, "Tactical mode" can now also be assigned an exact number of threads, giving you additional flexibility. Despite all the detailed technical improvements, Houdini has kept its creative and imaginative style of play, and where other programs see no future or are locked into a draw, Houdini delivers surprise after surprise.
