The systems primary function is to play against modern age top chess programs. These programs combined with the processing power aboard this systems gives unprecedented chess playing quality. But if you like you can also set the engines to play at levels starting from 1500 Elo. Included are also the emulations of the chess computers back in the 80’s and 90’s in which chess play against dedicated chess computers was at its peak. Remember the great Dutch Aegon tournaments?
The historic emulation function is a combined concept using emulation and the classical world champion modules for the Mephisto Series, and as I may say a very successful one. The emulation will run (varying upon the chosen processor) to up to 15 times faster than the original emulations, so in many cases they will run faster in comparison to the World Champion Editions from the eighties (remember the Tournament machines with the Motorola 68030 at 36 Mhz and 2MB Hash?). These emulations are great for the moderate chess players, and in combination with the current engines will give a broad range of chess playing experience to the customers. For the Emulations we have some extra good news. Phoenix Chess Systems als has the agreement with Ed Schröder and Johan de Koning, so not only the Richard Lang Emulations will be included but also the Ed Schröder Emulations an de Koning Emulations. And if you have the other originals systems, up to 23 emulations will be available.
The Revelation can operate as a DGT Bluetooth E-Board and even displays information, normally on the DGT XL clock, on the Revelation II display in this modus.

– The IMX7D is a modern processor and runs at 1,0 Ghz in dual core;
– The implementation of this IMX7D has a 32 bit wide databus, and a large cpu cache to ensure that the engines will run at their best performance;
– 1GB of DDR3 Ram ensures enough memory for large Hash tables;
– 4 Gigabyte of Flash memory, so there is plenty of storage to upgrade with additional Chess Engines as they become available;
– ELO levels can be adjusted to play at your level (depending on engine settings);

– As a bonus the UCI server is added so you can also play chess engines on your PC as if they are installed on the Revelation II. This software is added free of charge. A good reliable bluetooth up and downlink is necessary to use this feature.
We want to highlight the usage for a OLED display, which is a state of the art method of displaying information. It is green, and matches the led signalling on the board.
