Android UCI engine update: Texel 1.05
Regarding Android, it's more than a simple update from 1.05.a8 because the definitive version implements multi core usage, a long awaited feature previously available for Windows but not for Android
Bearing in mind in a quad core device, search speed can increases by 3 to 4 times depending on the code, one can see the added ELO may count more than all other improvements integrated.
Texel is continously improving and this latest version will surely place it higher in rankings. +100 ELO with 4 cores would not be surprising at all. However, don't ask me when i'll test it. I would say "maybe after Jim Ablett stops pouring engines every day" :-)
