Fritz 12

Fritz is a powerful German chess program developed by Frans Morsch and Mathias Feist. On the September 10, 2006 SSDF rating list, Fritz 9.0 placed sixth with a rating of 2811, six points below Shredder 9.0, and 113 points below #1 ranked Rybka 1.2.

On October 4, 2006, in the course of the FIDE World Chess Championship 2006 between Vladimir Kramnik and Veselin Topalov, Topalov’s manager Silvio Danailov issued a press release including what it labelled "coincidence statistics" between the play of Kramnik and moves recommended by the Fritz 9 software. Given Danailov’s previous characterization of Kramnik’s frequent bathroom visits as "strange, if not suspicious", this was widely interpreted as a tacit accusation of Kramnik cheating through the use of the Fritz software. However, the Danailov press release did not offer Topalov’s own percentages for comparison. Moreover, subsequent analysis showed that, using similar statistics, one might infer that the Cuban chess legend José Raúl Capablanca cheated using Chessmaster 9000 software back in 1918 – decades before the first computers were built.

Fritz 12 is the most recent title in the definitive chess series and in this test the Asus board has the edge for the first time. It would be hard to tell the two apart in real world use with a gap so small though.
