Here's the latest ranking list:

Interesting, I see they mention Fritz 11, but I already have Fritz 13, so how up-to-date is this list?

I'm pretty sure Houdini is for choice right now.

I dare not stick my neck out here but point only to the obvious sales descriptions. Maybe some can launch a discussions based on them. I too would like to know the answer to your question. See:

http://www.chesscentral.com/Deep_Hiarcs_13_DVD_p/deep-hiarcs-13.htm

http://www.chesscentral.com/Deep_Junior_12_Chess_Playing_Software_Program_DVD_p/...

http://www.chesscentral.com/Deep_Shredder_12_Chess_Software_Program_p/deepshredd...

http://www.chesscentral.com/Deep_Rybka_4_p/deep-rybka-4.htm

http://www.chesscentral.com/chess_software_p/houdini-uci.htm

One thing I'm fairly certain about is that ChessCentral has the best shipping price options.

Hiarcs is promoted as the best analysis partner but it does not have the strongest rating. I would go for that explanation if this was a discussion about human players but is this the same for computers too?

I hope those with considerable experience using the silicon brains will reply to this interesting question you've put forward.

Is there any consensus as to the best analysis program at the moment? Has Rybka been overtaken by Houdini, Fire, Hiarcs, Komodo et al yet? Undecided
