MILLENNIUM ChessGenius Pro Chess Computer

The chess computer for club and tournament players 

Playing strength more than 2200 ELO

This Chess Computer contains one of the most famous chess engines of all times: ChessGenius by Richard Lang.  With his 10 world championship titles in computer chess, this Englishman is without a doubt considered one of the most successful chess programmers of all time.

In addition to a more elegant appearance Genius Pro provides especially a significantly higher skill level, it reaches more than 2,200 ELO after international tournament standard. This was achieved through a variety of hardware and software modifications:

Improvements on Hardware

  • Significantly faster processor with 120 MHz clock speed (Factor 2.5 times as much as ChessGenius)
  • 160 KB RAM (Factor 5 times as much as ChessGenius)
  • Automatic power supply detection – connected power supply switches off the sleep mode during 24 hours for long term analyzing
  • Significantly improved sensor board with smooth-running pressure point

Improvements on Software

  • Three different options for Openings selectable:
    • ‘No opening book’, computer calculates by itself
    • ‘Classic London Book’, of. 57.000 positions (Equivalent to the old Chess Genius, library was enlarged by a factor of 2.8)
    • ‘Modern Book’, more than 100,000 positions, completely new library of modern opening variations. By HIARCS
  • Generally improved sleep mode with extended wake cycles
  • Display of move numbers in INFO mode
  • New ‘Matt in X’ stage especially for problem solving

Optical improvements

  • Exclusive chess pieces in white chrome (white pieces) and black chrome (black pieces)
  • Exclusive felt-bottom on the pieces

The sum of all measures results in a significant performance improvement over the established model, so that the “Pro” is the perfect choice especially for ambitious players. The improvements in handling and appearance of course also welcome all players who do not just put on peak power value. The new options allow the Pro to play much more diversified than the ChessGenius, so that playing is on a new level of excitement. The few opponents, where the Genius so far failed, get a new job!

Due to the increased performance of the processor, we recommend to operate the Genius Pro by the power supply adaptor sold separately. The battery operation is still possible, however, the playing time with batteries is well below that of the Genius.
