The Collector's Edition King Exclusive Chess960 is a versatile chess computer offering an impressive set of features suitable for a wide range of needs, covering the beginner to the serious studying professional.
Setting up a position to play or solve a “Mate in” problem is easy thanks to the auto-recognition board and pieces. Play is smooth and uninterrupted and focus can remain exclusively on the board thanks to integrated LEDs to indicate moves.
Beside the featured game variant "Chess960" or "Fischer Random Chess" the software also offers, among other things, 7 additional opening books. Unlike any other chess computer currently made, it displays actual opening names along with ECO codes and suggests moves within the opening so that you can train specific openings!
The set consists of the Millennium Exclusive sensor board with auto piece recognition, hand carved solid wood pieces, the chess computer module "The King Element" and power adapter.
The chess computer displays a “The King 960 Edition” identifying plate and a unique laser-engraved serial number. And not to miss a detail, the special collector's storage box with 2 colored foil stamps adds a nice touch.
Millennium has Limited the production quantity to 250.
Exclusive is engineered in Germany following many years of careful listening and discussion with avid players and computer enthusiasts. These people helped architect the ultimate hands-on chess game for the home.
For example, it was found that the most comfortable size chessboard (smaller than tournament and larger than portable sizes) would measure just under 16" (40cm) square. And it would be beautiful. The handmade, elegant wooden sensor-board is exactly that - attractive to display.
The ideal chess computer doesn't require you to press down on the squares. That's why built-in, fully-automatic piece detection is achieved with new rapid-sensing technology.
The computer unit is located in a separate cabinet with a generously sized display. It offers numerous display options similar to the earlier world-class computers from Mephisto, and of course chess timing during a match.
The cable connection between the clock and board makes it possible to exchange the hardware module and make future software updates via USB.
It's powered by an ARM Cortex M7 processor with 300 MHz and a significantly increased Flash and RAM-memory serves as motor for the hardware.
Estimated tournament strength of the ChessGenius Exclusive range between 2350 and 2400 ELO which even surpasses the performance level of the legendary Mephisto world champion computers
Thanks to this a new era of development in Munich, Germany, the Exclusive is being enjoyed by chess computer enthusiasts all over the world.
The Millennium ChessLink further expands the Exclusive with connectivity to tablet, PC and more!
