    The Chessbase USA site (not the main chessbase site) is reporting that Fritz 10 and Deep Fritz 10 will be here by year end and are available for preorder...but I can't find ANY more information ANYWHERE else. Can anyone confirm this?

    The computer that Deep Fritz was running on when it played Kramnik must have been a super one. It had eight processors?

    well I heard that most of those super computers are only small chips in essence but the rest is for RAM

    In case anyone is interested, I e-mailed Chessbase USA for verification and was told that the news had come from Chessbase Germany, so it sounds like it is valid to me. I guess they are skipping Deep Fritz 9 and going straight to version 10 for both "single processor" Fritz and the Deep version.

    You heard wrong. Hydra the chess monster that mutilates all human opposition relies on the brute force provided by 16 Xeons running at 3.06 GHz each, (with about 16 GBytes of RAM).

    If you could get a version of Hydra to run on a desktop machine vs the likes of Fritz or Shredder, it would probably lose a match.

    Yes small chips, just lots of them!

    CPUs as well as RAM.
