More info

After the much-praised introduction of the MILLENNIUM ChessGenius in the late autumn of 2015, we now present the clearly optimized and power-enhanced version ChessGenius PRO.

Many customers have expressed wishes for additional hardware and software functions that have contributed to the development of the new model. In addition to a more elegant appearance, the Genius Pro offers a significantly higher playing strength, it reaches over 2,200 ELO according to international tournament standard. This has been achieved through a variety of hardware and software modifications:

Hardware improvements:

Significantly faster processor with 120 MHz clock frequency (factor 2.5 faster than the ChessGenius)
160 KB RAM (factor 5 more than in ChessGenius)
Automatic power supply detection - the connected power supply switches off the sleep mode for 24 hours, for long-term analyzes.
Significantly improved sensor block with easy-to-reach pressure point

Improvements to the software:

Three different options for the openings selectable:

No opening book, computer calculates independently
"Classic London Book", approximately 57,000 positions (corresponds to the previous ChessGenius, Biliothek has increased by the factor 2.8)
"Modern Book", more than 100,000 positions, completely new library with modern opening variants. From HIARCS.
Generally improved sleep mode with prolonged wax phases
Display of train numbers in INFO mode
New Level Special for problem solving (Matt in X)
Optical improvements:

Figure set with chrome plating (white figures) and black chrome plating (black figures)
Figures equipped with felt floor
The sum of all the measures results in a clear increase in performance compared to the established model, making the "Pro" the perfect choice for ambitious players.

Of course, the improvements in handling and optics also appeal to all players, who are not only looking for top performance. The new options leave the pro much more varied and exciting than the genius. The few opponents, on whom the genius so far failed, will get a new task!

Because of the performance-enhanced processor, we recommend running the Genius Pro with the separately available power supply. The battery operation is still possible, but the battery life is much lower than that of the Genius.
