Artificial intelligence and human understanding. These two elements combined have characterized the Komodo chess program for years and are what make it stand out from all other top programs. In the development team, computer expert Mark Lefler and Grandmaster Larry Kaufman work together to continuously optimize their engine. Their successes speak volumes: Komodo has won a series of prestigious computer tournaments, including the TCEC, the CCT and last but not least the Computer Chess World Championship 2016!
The new version, Komodo Chess 11, is even stronger than its predecessor. The improved multiprocessor engine can utilize up to 64 cores for calculating variations, weighing in at over 50 Elo points more compared to its predecessor Komodo 10. In addition, in the endgame or when analysing, Komodo 11 also benefits from access to Syzygy endgame tablebases*. With tablebases, it can play 5 and 6-piece endings to perfection, with the engine capable of incorporating this knowledge into its assessment during the analysis of complex endgames. “I am deeply moved by the style of Komodo. In my opinion it’s the perfect combination between computer accuracy and human positional understanding. I get the feeling it’s taken positional understanding to the next level. After such an impressive performance I am going to test Komodo in my future work, especially in very positional play, and am really looking forward to working with it.” – GM Boris Avrukh
