Improved version (?)
Games played with a new version
The difference between the commercial version Rebel 8.0 and this first test
version is search and evalution related. The goal is to get the maximum
out of todays faster Pentium machines. So we hope to see a (much) better
performance on faster machines, such as the Pentium PRO 200 Mhz than on
relative slow (?) Pentium 90 Mhz machines!!
Here you can find the first promising test results of a hopefully improved
version of the REBEL 8.0 chess engine. For the moment we have called this
version Test vesion 97.1 or simply TV97.1
Till now it looks like we managed again to make a new ELO jump for the
successor of Rebel 8.0 but we strongly advice to be careful to draw
premature conclusions since the games played sofar are too less yet.
Also results can be influenced by the number of different opponents
played and sofar only a few opponents are included in the testing of the
promising TV97.1 version.
The results of the TV97.1 test version look as follows:
