ABOUT SAITEK KASPAROV SIMULTANO VERSION C MODEL 310 ELECTRONIC CHESS COMPUTER

 

The later version of the SIMULTANO was sold with the upgraded “C” version ROM. You can tell which version you own by opening the ROM compartment at the back of the chess computer. If the ROM has “C” marked on it then this is the version that you own. There is probably very little difference in the playing strength of the original version and the “C” version, but the “C” version might be a slightly stronger chess program.

 

SAITEK KASPAROV SIMULTANO VERSION C MODEL 310 GAME CHARACTERISTICS

 

Your KASPAROV SIMULTANO is an advanced chess computer that automatically registers the moves you make on its built-in sensor chessboard. It has a special LCD chessboard on which the current position and a variety of information is displayed during the game. In fact the computer is able to play eight games simultaneously against eight different opponents on the LCD display.

The computer can take back any number of moves, replay games, announce mate, and display its thought processes. It has 64 different levels of skill and in addition a unique user-programmable library that allows you to store games, positions and openings in its permanent memory. These features make your KASPAROV SIMULTANO one of the most versatile chess computers available.

The built-in openings book contains an extensive selection of solid, popular lines that any master might very well be playing in modern international tournaments and with Garry Kasparov’s latest ideas, especially as Black, where the Gruenfeld Defense, the Meran Defense, and the Scheveningen Variation of the Sicilian Defense are major weapons. These are aggressive, full-scale openings programmed with many variations, and it is difficult to catch the computer in offbeat lines.
