Blog "Chess Engines Diary" - needs a new laptop for chess engine tests

♔ We use for testing only 2 old laptops:
1. Acer - Intel Core i3-3217U ( 5 years old)
2. Lenovo - Intel Core i7-4710MQ is over 3 years old (He works 24 hours a day)
♕♞ A modern laptop that will be designed only for chess engine tests costs (with software) about $ 1000-1200 (4200-4500 PLN). We will no longer invest private money, and chess engine testing costs are big. That is why we are starting the collection for the purchase of a laptop for testing.

♕ Our blog "Chess Engines Diary" is visited by around 2,000-3.000 users daily. If only everyone paid 1 dollar - we will pay the required amount in one day!

    1. Checked, the file is okay. You may not have downloaded it completely

  2. Thanks for your reply, but the file has been fully downloaded.
    I've tried 7zip and winrar, i got the same problem with both.
    Having deleted the files after an unsuccessful unpack i downloaded the file again to take screenshots to show you, but they seemed to unpack fine this time around.
    Many thanks ;-)

  3. can we plz have 6.2 new upgrade?
