In 14 days a new dedicated chess computer by Mephisto comes on the market .
Its called Mephisto Phoenix.

Mephisto is the company that began in 1980 with mephisto 1.


I remember how i bought the first dedicated chess computer from Mephisto.
I was very young and had not much money but i bought the mephisto machine.

1982 Mephisto 2 came on the market.
1983 Mephisto 3 came on the market.


And these Nitsche/Henne machines were really a breakthrough.

Since mephisto Phoenix uses a Rasberry Pi and UCI format for engines there is plenty of possibilities.

E.g. it seems it will be the first dedicated chess computer coming with 5 pieces endgame tablebases in the next update.
Many engines can qualify for the machine.

40 years after i bought my first dedicated chess computer,
another Mephisto comes on the market and will be a succes IMO.

My first dedicaded computer in the same year was the weak Fidelity Mini Sensory Chess. But the last was the rock solid Mephisto Roma 68000 bought after that my boss organized the WMCC 87 under the Vittoriano at Venice Square (Piazza Venezia) in Rome :-)

Yes the roma had a lot of knowledge about pawns etc.
Dallas was a very good blitz engine. But roma was Slow. Richard put much knowledge into the thing, iam sure ossi weiner adviced to do so.

Snap!

It wasn't weak by my standards, and from playing it I learned a valuable skill - to push pawns!

I didn't know until decades later that it ran a Ron Nelson program (link) - I had always assumed it was the Spracklens.

Here is my new mephisto Phoenix running Mephisto Glasgow by Thomas Nitsche and Elmar Henne as Emulation Mephisto Phoenix chess computer  631c8210

As you can see it gives a huge display for showing information such as evals, depths, main-line.

I like the way all four corners of the G4 square are lit!

It is a very nice set Thorsten. I think I love the big chessboard the most of it but that is just me, the computer is very nice too. Mephisto Glasgow can run at 65 times the original speed they say what Elo would that be Smile

Mephisto Phoenix chess computer  98a1c010

On the bottom my old mephisto II from 1982.
On top you see Mephisto Phoenix from 2022.
40 years of development between these two dedicated chess computers.
The new machine has no real buttons but the big touch display can generate all kinds of „buttons“.

Mephisto II had a cool and for the time big LCD display.

here a game of Mephisto III S Glasgow on the new Mephisto Phoenix dedicated chess computer.
Glasgow runs as Emulation in full speed.

You also get many Ed Schroeder emulation engines such as Gideon, MM4/5/Nigel Short and Polgar.

Also native UCI engines such as the new shredder 13.5 with neural net and Hiarcs14.2, Komodo and Stockfish.

One cloud is that you can reduce the engines. E.g. run Hiarcs14.2 with only 1% speed.
Or give ELO numbers to limit its playing strength. E.g. giving Hiarcs14.2 2100 ELO.
and it will NOT compute immediality without thinking, that would spoil the complete fun.
no it computes like a normal human beeing.

But here Thomas Nitsche and Elmar Hennes Mephisto IIIS Glasgow Phoenix
against my Fidelity Elite A/S with v6 hardware (68020) and the spracklen engine:
