ChessGenius Exclusive is a very flat, handcrafted wooden Sensor board, indicating its moves through 81 single-square lights and especially convenient fully automatic piece recognition.
The computer unit itself is located in a separate casing with a very generous back-lit screen offering a diverse array of display options (similar to the former Mephisto high-end models), which can also be used as a chess clock during a game.
The convenience of the fully automatic board is excellent, especially the high recognition speed and reliability. There is no need to look at the computer display during the game thanks to the brightly lit 4 LEDs per square on the board.
The cable connection between the casing and the sensor board provides a modular setup allowing for hardware to be exchanged effortlessly and software updates to be performed via the integrated USB port. This can be used to save chess games or download opening libraries.
The hardware is powered by an ARM Cortex M7 processor with a speed of 300MHz and a large flash memory and RAM. These powerful specs provide a playing strength in the range of 2300–2400 ELO (tournament skill level).
