Blog "Chess Engines Diary" - needs a new laptop for chess engine tests

♔ We use for testing only 2 old laptops:
1. Acer - Intel Core i3-3217U ( 5 years old)
2. Lenovo - Intel Core i7-4710MQ is over 3 years old (He works 24 hours a day)
♕♞ A modern laptop that will be designed only for chess engine tests costs (with software) about $ 1000-1200 (4200-4500 PLN). We will no longer invest private money, and chess engine testing costs are big. That is why we are starting the collection for the purchase of a laptop for testing.

♕ Our blog "Chess Engines Diary" is visited by around 2,000-3.000 users daily. If only everyone paid 1 dollar - we will pay the required amount in one day!

  1. The Sting engines listing Marek Kwiatkowski as the author are either the lasiest clones ever, or Kwiatkowski is just a terrible coder that is incapable of even finding the author's signature line in the code. Download the engine and install it in whatever GUI you choose and the author that pops up is Tord Romstad and Marco Costalba. A word of advice Marek...while it is perfectly fine to clone open source material like Stockfish, you might want to change at least one line of code....oh wait....two lines of code. One line to make your "own" improvements and the second line to change the original author. What a joke!

    1. Marek Kwiatkowski announces that Sting is based entirely on code Stockfish.
