Position Tests

HIARCS 10 has played many beautiful attacking games in the independent SSDF test matches played at 40 moves in 2 hours. These games are typical of HIARCS' king hunting style, making the games it plays all the more exciting.
Our thanks to the SSDF and its dedicated testers for the years of tireless and accurate testing. These games were played by SSDF tester Tony Hedlund.

"HIARCS is much better positionally than Deep Blue." - Garry Kasparov 1997 (after game 5 of the rematch)

World Chess Champion, Vishy Anand, used "Powerful" HIARCS machine in preparations for his 2010 world title match with Super GM Veselin Topalov

"This level of service is one other big reason to buy HIARCS." - John Jackson, November 2009
