Saitek Kasparov Cosmos 24 MHz (Tuned) (1998)

SAITEK COSMOS tuned to 24 MHz

This SAITEK COSMOS was bought in Germany and is tuned to 24 MHz. It finished second in the 3. Online Aktivschach B-World Championship in 2007. After playing quite poorly in the it’s qualifying group COSMOS 24 MHz then bounced back in the B-World Championship beating Saitek Sparc 4 - 2 in the final 8. In the final, COSMOS 24 MHz lost to the TASC Chessmachine 512K 32Mhz playing the software Gideon Madrid 3.1 from Ed Schroeder which won the last official World Championship held in Vancouver in 1991, in which dedicated chess computers were entered.

SAITEK COSMOS 24 MHz is a fine example of what Saitek could have achieved with their programs if they had sold versions of their stronger programs with faster CPU’s. The regular commercial SAITEK COSMOS running at 10 MHz has a Manufacturer’s rating of ELO 2000 (Swedish rated) and currently plays 30 seconds per move Active Chess at ELO 2020 based on 485 games played.

The tuned SAITEK COSMOS 24 MHz in comparison, is currently rated at ELO 2162 after 58 games, which is an improvement of 142 ELO points compared to the 10 MHz commercial version. This corresponds to an incredible improvement of approximately 100 ELO points per doubling of clock speed.

And, this is no fluke, the tuned COSMOS 24 MHz shown here has beaten such notables as the 2-time active chess world champion Resurrection Ruffian 2.1, Mephisto Risc II 1 MB, TASC Chessmachine 16Mhz King 2.2, Mephisto Atlanta and other notables in Active Chess tournament matches!
