Description

KOMODO CHESS 13

64 BIT MULTIPROCESSORVERSION

 

Komodo 13 analyzes better than any other chess program. The development of the MCTS technology has paid off especially in combination with "multi-variation mode": In standard computers that have multiple CPUs, Komodo 13 MCTS is the world's best engine for analysing with two or more variations. In addition, Komodo 13 takes on a very human character. In balanced positions, where other engines evaluate as "0.00", Komodo looks more closely: The engine gives preference to the side that has the easier game, for instance, when the opponent must find a whole series of difficult moves to remain equal.

Komodo is a three-time computer world chess champion. Whether classical, rapid or blitz chess, in 2018 Komodo 12 won the Computer Chess World Championships in Stockholm, Sweden in all three disciplines. And Komodo 13 MCTS has significantly improved on multi-CPU systems!

Komodo 13: match winner and analysis partner. As with its predecessor, Komodo 13 comes with two versions of the engine: The standard version continues to be the first choice in the match play against other chess programs. The "MCTS" version, now improved by 350 Elo points compared to Komodo 12, is recommend for everyone interested in discovering variations and detecting mistakes together with Komodo 13.

GM Boris Avrukh:  "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."

Komodo 13 with AlphaZero techniques

Larry Kaufman on the new Komodo 13: The playing strength of the regular Komodo engine is only represents a gain of about thirty Elo points over Komodo 11. The playing strength in MCTS mode, running on one thread, is well over 3000 Elo, which is stronger than any other PC engine in the world. On two or three threads Komodo 13 will gain roughly the same amount as normal engines do, which is roughly fifty Elo for two threads and about eighty for three. Big news: the Komodo 13 package includes a working Monte Carlo Tree Search (MCTS) option, which allows Komodo to use MCTS in place of the normal alpha-beta search, while still allowing the user to play games, to analyze, and pretty much to do the same things he would do with normal Komodo. But it has the characteristic behavior of AlphaZero and Leela in that it is less materialistic and more aggressive (and human like) than normal engines. Komodo MCTS has some real advantages over the normal Komodo engine. First of all, if you want to look at the evaluations of many (or in fact all) legal moves at the root, Komodo MCTS will not lose strength while displaying this information. Regular chess engines lose hundreds of Elo points when displaying multiple lines. The playing style of Komodo MCTS is far bolder than that of the regular engine. It plays much like AlphaZero, preferring activity to material (within reason). The moves tend to be more human, because MCTS doesn't assume perfect play by the opponent. Finally, the evaluations change more gradually, not in sudden jumps as is typical with normal engines. Komodo 13 has additional skill levels, now 0 thru 20, to allow players to face an opponent of comparable strength. Level 0 is roughly beginner level, level 19 perhaps Magnus Carlsen level in quick games, and level 20 is the full strength. Find your matching level and practice against the computer.
