STOCKFISH - The New Number One Strongest Chess Engine!


Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the new Number One Strongest Chess Engine ... STOCKFISH !

Even before the last deadly shot has been fired, the author of the Houdini chess engine, Robert Houdart has conceded defeat in the chess engines power race (Talkchess forum, October 8). The winner was not the one who has the best deadly firepower for the short term, but the one who has the capability of continuous production of armaments. In this case, Houdini has the best tactical engine for a good time, but Stockfish has produced a steady supply of builds from the testing infrastructure technology that incrementally increased the firepower of Stockfish every week.

There is no more argument on who is the strongest chess engine, even the famous chess engine authors like Don Dailey and Norman Schmidt echoed the sentiments of Robert Houdart with due respects to the awesome power of the Stockfish Testing Framework.

The end of the beginning has been fulfilled. The new number one strongest chess engine has come of age before the TCEC Tournament is finished.

Here is the performance of Stockfish that secured its number one position as the strongest chess engine in the world as of September 9, 2013.

  1. For once your compile is weaker than the original Stockfish Development version in my Tests on my i7 3930k with 32 GB RAM........too bad !

  2. Prior to the gauntlet tournament, I checked whether my new compilation will have an advantage against the original Stockfish development release, it won that's why it was the choice in the finale matches to dethrone Houdini. I also made a quick 100 games match between the new MinGW compilation against VS and it is leading 46.5-43.5 as I prepare to go home.

    Anyway, download again and you will find the VS version which was used throughout my previous tournaments.
