Komodo 9 [Download]
Komodo 9 is a substantial improvement over Komodo 8, which was already rated among the top three chess engines on almost all rating lists. Komodo 9 is approximately +50 Elo stronger than Komodo 8 on one core according to the independent IPON test and our own internal testing, with the gain increasing to about +60 Elo on 4 cores. Gains come from improved search, evaluation, and time management, as well as more efficient use of multiprocessing.
