Van de website van Phoenix Chess Systems:
Revelation II chess board is a complete chess system based upon the first Revelation chess board. It is based upon a 800Mhz Xscale processor and produces a chess rating of over 2800 ELO using the world champion programs Shredder and Hiarcs.
The systems primary function is to play against modern age top chess programs. These programs combined with the processing power aboard this systems gives unprecedented chess playing quality. But if you like you can also set the engines to play at levels starting from 1500 Elo. Included are also the emulations of the chess computers back in the 80's and 90's in which chess play against dedicated chess computers was at it's peak. Remember the great Aegon tournaments ?
The historic emulation function is a combined concept using emulation and the classical world champion modules for the Mephisto Series, and as i may say a very succesful one. The emulation will run almost at twice the speed as the original emulations, so in many cases they will run faster in comparison to the World Champion Editions from the eighties (remember the Tournament machines with the Motorola 68030 at 36 Mhz and 2MB Hash?). These emulations are great for the moderate chess players, and in combination with the current engines will give a broad range of chess playing experience to the customers. For the Emulations we have some extra good news. Phoenix Chess Systems has reached an agreement with Ed Schröder, so not only the Richard Lang Emulations will be included but als the Ed Schröder Emulations, and included in the special combination price as well.
The highlights for the system are :
- Included is a carrying bag for the complete system, so the Chess Board is wel protected, and can be transported without risk;
- Fully standalone Chess Board, equipped with onboard embedded Marvell PXA320 high performance processor to facilitate the onboard chess engines;
- The PXA320 is the fastest processor in the well known PXA/XSCALE series, and runs at 800+ Mhz;
- The implementation of this PXA320 has a 32 bit wide databus, and a large cpu cache to ensure that the engines will run at their best performance;
- 128MB of DDR SDRam ensures enough memory for large Hash tables;
- 1 Gigabyte of Flash memory, so there is plenty of storage to upgrade with Chess Engines as they become available;
- ELO levels can be adjusted to play at your level (depending on engine settings);
- The Chess Board is multi chess engine, so you can select from a number of Chess Engines;
- The Chess Board will contain three engines at delivery, but can be upgraded with more Chess Engines;
- Included are Hiarcs and Shredder to ensure you have top performing Chess Engines;
- As a courtesy of some well known programmers Fruit, Toga and Ruffian are also included;
- The Chess Board is using the great Piece Recognition Technology from DGT, so analysing and setting up chess positions are simple as that;
- The Chess Board is based upon the Revelation I Chess Board design, but now has slightly separated stands and they will be in black finish, resulting in a classic modern look;
- A larger display with double resolution, based upon the newest OLED technology, gives detailed information over the current chess game;
- The display as well as the led technology around the chess fields to indicate the moves are all made up from a gentle and elegant green lighting;
- All focus is upon beauty and passion for the chess game, so despite all electronics onboard, you will have a fine, wooden chess board of high quality with great pieces;- For PC communication Bluetooth is available. This way you can upgrade with newest firmware when available or even newer Chess Engines, and upgrades on existing Chess Engines.
We want to highlight the usage for a OLED display, which is a state of the art method of displaying information. It is green, and matches the led signalling on the board.
