Go up one level in this thread



WMCCC is already scheduled and the rules have been set. Discussions
here aren't going to change the rules for this event. (I hope :)

I would like to offer a suggestion for a future Micro Computer Chess
Event.

Since there are many different hardware platforms available and many of
the
existing programs are optimized for a specific platform a single
platform
event would be too limited.

Instead, I suggest that the hardware used by the chess program be
limited
to publicly available systems with a cost cap to keep the systems in the
range
of personal budgets. Only the processor, memory and external storage
used
during play should be covered by the cost cap.

The use of multiple processors should be encouraged by this limit as it
is
generally cheeper to use two processors than to double the clock speed
of one.
