The World Computer Chess Championship is onging in China (part of the World
Mind Sports thing). The leaders, about half-way through , are a 40 core
cluster from the US and a "8 x 4GHz" machine from the UK, with 4.5 out of 5.
There are 10 participants, it's a nine-round round robin. Cluster Toga, also
a cluster, is notable for drawing both of the leaders.
