The Millennium Mephisto Phoenix T Chess Computer includes the Mephisto Phoenix Chess Computer Module and the Mephisto Tournament Size Chess Board and regulation size pieces. 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.  

The Phoenix comes with 4 different Top-Class Engines on Board: Shredder 13.5, Komodo 14.1, Hiarcs 14.2 and Stockfish 16 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. 

The optionally available engine package expands the Phoenix with 3 additional high-end engines: These include GinkGo, the well-known engine behind Fritz 18, Leela Zero - a purely neural engine with a great playing style and a real challenge for all self-players as well as Komodo Dragon 3 - Komodo's neural variant with an above-average active, sometimes risk-taking playing style and countless adjustable options for all chess players who like to experiment. With the "PLAY ONLINE" game mode, the Phoenix allows you to play against other people via the LiChess servers. The direct connection of the device to Lichess ensures a fast and smooth game flow. In addition to the standard games, it is possible to play against friends from your own friends list as well as participate in Arena and Swiss tournaments. And it's just as easy as playing against the chess programs in Phoenix – directly on your chess board

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. So if you've always wanted to play against the dream chess computer from your youth: Welcome!

Updates for the System come via WIFI directly on the unit, and if you purchase additional software in the computerchess.com webstore it is installed as easy as with the press of one button. The machine comes with 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. In addition, the Phoenix is the first chess computer with integrated tablebases. Tablebases are endgame databases that work in a similar way to an opening book. They help the engines in the endgame to quickly find the right way to mate or to recognize early on how the game will end, even in very long endgames.

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.
