Chess Engines Ratings

 

Welcome to my Chess Engines Ratings page.

Chess engine ratings allow us to gauge how strong a chess engine is. The ratings are calculated by pitting hundreds of chess engines against each other and checking their performance. There are two main chess engine rating websites. Currently, the chess engine Rybka is the world's strongest chess engine.

Here is a snapshot of the world's chess engine rating list. Last updated 26/03/08

Single Processor

Most of your computers will be single processor and these are engines tested only on one processor.

Multi Processor

Multi processors are computers with more than one processor. Typically 2 processors, but there can also be 4 and 8. Multi processors give engines a lot more memory and raw power so they will perform at a higher level.

To purchase products, I recommend Wholesale Chess. They provide the highest quality chess products at the lowest prices (especially for US and Canadian players). They even offer to match prices with other chess websites! Even though I live overseas, this is where I choose to purchase chess goods.

For chess opening training and repertoire maintenance, I highly recommend the software I use, Chess Openings Wizard. This software was approved by Grandmaster Peter Svidler (FIDE rating 2744 as of January 2010) many years ago.
