Default Deep Fritz 10 - Multiprocessor Version

....world chess champion Vladimir Kramnik, succumbed (2:4) to the
artificially intelligent Deep Fritz late last year. Vladimir
represented the most brilliant chess fighter humanity had to offer for
the six-round cerebral duel against what he described as a
"calculating monster." Running on a standard laptop, Deep Fritz used
raw processing power and clever exploration of possible future moves
to eventually thrash Vladimir, and with him, humanity.

Play it vs Rybka in a hour time control game.

Yep, it really fires the imagination, doesn't it? But then you ought
to look at these and see where Fritz ranks:

It's pretty unanimous, wouldn't you say?

Since January 2007 Kramnik has been rated 2766 in the FIDE Elo rating
list. Why would anyone enjoy watching Kramnik play chess? It would be
as entertaining as watching him wrestling a bulldozer in a sumo match.

That humans can no longer compete with advantages or on even terms
with the latest computers and chess software is redundantly proven,
unless you give the human advantages or disadvantage the computer.
Why people study human games any more, with their continual
inaccuracies and frequent blunders, is beyond me. Computers aren't
perfect yet by any means but the best rigs are now playing 300 ELO
better than the #1-ranked player.

The point of my earlier message was to convey the fact that Fritz is
well down the rankings and by no means the strongest or even the
second or third-strongest chess engine, regardless of its popularity.
If Kramnik had played the latest Rybka on a strong machine without all
the handicaps they gave Fritz the match might well have been a
humiliating shutout, which would kill interest in man-machine matches,
which are really just marketing and publicity-related events.

1) Because you can ask the player *why* he played a particular move.
2) Because mistakes can be instructive.

3) There are plenty of interesting positions where the best humans still
make better choices than the best machines.
