Revelation System highlights

Read the system highlights of the Revelation here.


  • 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 OLED 256*64 pixels display with double resolution based on the most current OLED 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
