ChessCentral is happy to share with you Steve’s first impressions of the very exciting new version of Fritz: Fritz 12 is due out in mid-October. Without further ado, lets hear from Steve:
“It’s been a while since we’ve seen an update for the chess playing software Fritz, so when you see the new version of our old friend as Fritz 12, you might not even recognize him – Fritz 12 is that upscaled and modern looking.
Since the early 1990’s, Fritz has been the premiere chess playing program for training, analysis, and just plain old-fashioned sparring. Whether you want a post-mortem on your last tournament outing or a quick game (either against the Fritz chess playing engine or online against a human opponent), Fritz is still the first choice for serious chess players and casual hobbyists alike.
But Fritz has come a long way since the old DOS days when it was primarily a chess program for professionals and serious tournament players. Dozens of features have been added over the years which make Fritz the ideal electronic tool for everyone from beginner to grandmaster. Improved database functions, modular engines, chess training features – Fritz just keeps getting better and better with each new edition.”
