About the Mephisto Phoenix

(See also this Blog Article for more about the Phoenix here.)

The Mephisto Phoenix is
a UCI based multi-engine chess computer, which provides access to a huge variety in chess gaming. With Shredder Neuronal and Stockfish NNUE, you see the world’s first dedicated chess computer using most modern neuronal engine technologies.

The module in its modern design comes with a large color touch screen made from real glass, matching its wooden board perfectly. Accompanied by the well-structured touch menu system it is meant to be the perfect home station for chess lovers of all ages, all playing strengths and all experience levels.  

Most powerful chess computer of all times

The Phoenix comes with 4 different Top-Class Engines on Board: Shredder 13.5, Komodo 14.1, Hiarcs 14.2 and Stockfish 15 NNUE. Starting from a very simple level, which is also suitable for absolute beginners, the system can reach a maximum performance of over 3400 ELO. In fact, there are countless options to adjust the playing strength to your individual needs. The system covers the widest playing strength range ever provided by a chess computer.  

Shredder offers a highly interesting new function with its fully automatic self-adapting playing strength with ELO rating. In this way you can continuously monitor your progress and see how much you have improved through training with the computer.

The evaluation bar beside the chess board tells you at first glance how the engine rates the position. Any blunders are quickly noticed that way and you always have a feeling on how good you do.  

Great opening training per your needs 

The machine comes with some different opening books: The standard one by Mark Uniacke provides you with more than 1.000.000 positions, all from master play. This is the biggest opening book ever provided by a dedicated chess computer.

The system is expanded with 23 classical chess computer emulations running at a high speed. Most remarkable is the “Mephisto Glasgow”, the legendary world championship program of 1984 - which runs on the MEPHISTO PHOENIX system at a speed of approx. 66 times faster than the original machine of the time.

With the speed bar you easily control the emulation speed or set it to the speed of the original chess computer, button and display layout follows the originals.

Updates for the System come via WIFI directly on the unit, and if you purchase additional software in the webstore it is installed as easy as with the press of one button. 

The Mephisto Phoenix is the right unit for you if you 

  • Wish to own the most powerful chess computer ever made, building a bridge between past glory days and todays modern style of playing chess
  • Are interested in modern engine technologies, e.g. NNUE Technology and see how they evaluate
  • Like to play with retro chess computers and to see how these programs perform on a modern hardware

MEPHISTO (Exclusive Style) Sensor Board

The MEPHISTO Medium sized board is a very flat sensor board with move indication by 81 single field LEDs as well as extremely comfortable fully automatic piece recognition. The chess board is Mephisto branded as well and board colors are finetuned to match the module and the pieces. The noble sensor board convinces by its high recognition speed and reliability. During the game, it is not necessary to look at the display of the chess computer due to the brightly lit 4 LEDs per playing field.

Customer Reviews

Based on 1 review

Hello all,
i got the Computer with 15.7 inch Chess Board. I agree with some of the shortcomings descried by others but it has so much more pros . Simply put its fantastic! i had no issues to connect to WIFI at home, the unit does not make any noise even after 1 hour playing . i did set NNUE with search generates more heat at least i noticed when playing on desktop 16 core Stockfish or Komodo Dragon 3 NNUE 60 C without its 47 C but on this phoenix unit not much difference.
I pre ordered it from Millennium site so got a great deal but even at full price i would have gotten it. yes I'm a crazy chess lover. 4 modern era engines are super strong specially SF15 . i love to have retro engines , but yes its kind of difficult to set anything there..i did go to FORUM called Mephisto phoenix Owners Lounge and wow smart fellow chess players have written many useful instructions there. Millennium will hopefully listen to owners and make desired changes , and we all hope soon ChessLink with Lichess will be implemented. The more time i spent with the computer with help from internet forums the more i leaned to giving it 5 stars.
English is my second language so i spare you from further torture with final verdict..Go and get it but be warned like myself you might be tired for a weeks i cannot stop playing and experimenting with it staying up late night.
I got the king performance from chess house same great experience that's why i wrote review here.
cheers, Peter
