Stockfish 14 has arrived!


Congratulations to the Stockfish team for the latest release of their world class engine! Stockfish 14 is now available for download, as always, 100% free/libre open-source software, just like Lichess.

The new version of Stockfish wins four times more game pairs than it loses against the previous version (+40 Elo, more in Chess960). Part of this comes from collaborating with Leela Chess Zero. See the official release announcement for more details and improvements.

Server-side analysis on Lichess updated

Client-side analysis on Lichess not yet updated

Stockfish 13+ client-side analysis

Stockfish 14's new NNUE architecture brings even larger network files. So for the time being, client-side analysis on Lichess will keep using Stockfish 13+ (or the strongest classical version ever, Stockfish 11+, aka SF_Classical, if NNUE is turned off or not available for your browser). In the future we may consider more advanced compression for network files, or specialized smaller networks for client-side analysis.
