Yep, the world computer chess championships are currently underway.

Here is a link to the latest results.

Looks like Fritz isn't going to make it very far this year.

Diep did pretty well.

Vincent (the programmer of Diep) said nearly everyone who was anyone ran on Dual/Quad Opterons.

Diep did well in the regular games - but no so hot in the speed chess tourney.
FIBChess doesn't have an opening book. Spanked. I wonder if this was some kind of experiment in machine learning or something?! Why else would you not use an opening book?

Looks like four of them were running quad Opteron's (http://www.cs.biu.ac.il/games/ then click participants). There's a lot of bang for the buck in those Opterons. I wonder if we'll ever see a dedicated chess Deep Blue type of machine again.
