SciSys Turbostar 432 KSO
“A leader: broad opening theory, skillful tactics, and strategic goals. No wonder it scored over 2000 ELO in the U.S. Open.”
TURBOSTAR 432 is one of the world’s strongest chess computers. Rated over 2,000 ELO, it is capable of beating over 97% of of all chess players. It features a high speed 4 MHz microprocessor and a 40K program.
TURBOSTAR 432 is also very aggressive and frequently anticipates its opponent’s move and responds immediately. 31 preset levels of play can be selected to match the skill of any player, novice or top club standard. It is ideal for tournaments with over 4,000 programmable time settings to match any special time controls.
TURBOSTAR 432 with its Kasparov Selected Openings (KSO) program has all the advanced features of a top chess computer.
The module contains an additional program which allows it to recognize transpositions; this means that you can play an Opening variation that the computer does not know, but the moment your line yields a position identical to the line that the computer knows, it intelligently recognizes it and begins playing from Book again. This triples the size and effectiveness of the book. You will notice that the computer takes about another second to reply to any moves from Book; this is the transposition checker in action.
KASPAROV SELECTED OPENINGS feature many of Garry Kasparov’s favorite opening lines including some new variations established at the recent World Championship match. Many of the variations have been recommended by Kasparov’s books and commentary. These lead to a lively style focusing on active piece play as favored by the world’s highest rated player.
In total some 16,000 active opening sequences are now available with the module. This variety and depth makes the KSO module ideal for studying Opening theory and a strengthened game overall.
