  • The ChessBase Cloud***: you are now able to make use of your databases from any computer and later also from any mobile device. Set up your own repertoire and your own games in private space in our cloud
  • Optimise the performance of your engines with analysis tasks. First of all define which positions are to be analysed one after the other. Like this your engine will over a long period of time assemble independently and store for you in-depth analyses.
