 Revelation System highlights

    Revelation II Anniversary Edition: Multi Core, 1.0 GHz.
    Fully standalone chess board, equipped with on-board embedded Marvell PXA320 high performance processor to facilitate the on-board chess engines
    The PXA320 is the fastest processor in the well-known PXA/XSCALE series and runs at 800+ MHz. The implementation of this PXA320 has a 32 bit wide data-bus,        and a large CPU cache to ensure that the engines will run at their best performance

    128MB of DDR SD RAM ensures sufficient memory for large Hash tables
    1 GB Flash Memory giving plenty of storage to upgrade with new chess engines as they become available
    The system is future proof as adding additional Flash Memory and processing/RAM power (by exchanging the current Marvell PXA module) are built in possibilities

    The system contains three commercial engines at delivery and can be upgraded with more chess engines in the future
    Top performing chess engines included are Hiarcs, Shredder and Komodo.
    Freeware and/or open source engines such as well-known programs Fruit, Toga, Ruffian and Rybka are also included

    ELO levels can be adjusted to play at your level (depending on engine settings)
    Compared to running the same chess engines on a PC or laptop, Revelation offers unique options and possibilities such as the possibility to turn down the speed of      the on-board processor to play at levels from 1500 ELO and up

Electronic piece recognition
    The chess board is using the great individual piece recognition technology from DGT ensuring that analyzing and setting up chess positions is simply a case of            placing the pieces on the board
    All available electronic DGT chess pieces are compatible with Revelation II: Timeless, Classic, Royal, Venus (no longer available),  Royal and the official FIDE sets;      all sets are supplied with two queens for each color.

    Board size is 57 x 61 cm, square size is 52 x 52 mm and the board thickness is 30 mm
    All focus is upon beauty and passion for the chess game, so despite all on-board electronics, Revelation has a fine wooden chess board of high quality with great        wooden pieces

OLED screen and Led Lights
    A large green LED 256*64 pixels display with double resolution based on the most current LED technology gives detailed information about the current chess game
    The display as well as the LED lights in the board are a gentle and elegant green lighting

Bluetooth and online connection
    Through Bluetooth 2.0 communication with the PC the system can be upgraded with latest available firmware, new chess engines and engine upgrades
    Revelation can function as a regular DGT Bluetooth e-Board offering options such as live broadcasting of games via the internet and online play at chess portals          and websites
