Description

The elegant chess computer with piece recognition, made from real wood

Playing strength > 2300 ELO!

The new Chess Genius Exclusive is a handmade, elegant wooden sensory board with a size of approximately 40 x 40 x 2 cm, with 81 LEDs as move indicators and fully automatic piece-detection. The computer unit is located in a separate cabinet with a generously sized display. It offers numerous display possibilities similar to the earlier world-class computers from Mephisto, and can also be used as a chess clock during a match. The comfortable handling of the fully automated board, in particular the detection speed and reliability, is exceptional.

The cable connection between the clock and the chessboard makes it not only possible to exchange the hardware module, it further allows future software updates to be made via the integrated USB-interface. An ARM Cortex M7 processor with 300 MHz and a significantly increased Flash and RAM-memory serves as motor for the hardware.

First assessments estimate the tournament strength of the Chess Genius Exclusive to range between 2350 and 2400 ELO, which surpasse the performance level of the legendary Mephisto world champion computers. Thanks to this new development from Munich, these devices have finally found a worthy successor.

In addition to the Classic and Master books, seven user books are also integrated (Open Games, Spanish, Semi-Open Games, Sicilian, Queen´s Gambit, Indian and Gambits). A separate download is no longer necessary.
4. Different Playing Styles
In the new program you can choose between three different playing styles: SOLID, NORMAL or RISKY. NORMAL is the strongest one.

6. Sliding of Chess pieces
You can pick up and set chess pieces as before. You can also slide chess pieces across several squares. You only have to adjust the board’s reaction time in the options menu.
