I'm trying to decide if I should upgrade to DF13 strictly from a GUI/graphics perspective. Are the graphics (2D & 3D) in DF13 better than DF12? Are the boards (2D & 3D) the same or different? Are there any improvements in the speed of the DF13 3D graphics under Windows 7?

Thanks for posting the pictures. I have a few questions. Why do you think the Deep Fritz 12 3D graphics look better? Did you have to uninstall Deep Fritz 12 before installing Deep Fritz 13? Are the 3D graphics any faster in Deep Fritz 13 than Deep Fritz 12?

I don't have either. I only have Fritz 10, and have only used 2D mode.

The graphics in the screenshots that I posted of Fritz 12 look more appealing to me.

No idea. But looking at them, at best they should have the same speed, but DF13 graphics could even be slower, as besides rendering the board and pieces, it has to render the clocks, the table, the wall, the chair, etc.

More than speed, you should decide on aesthetics, what 3D screenshot looks better to you?

2D graphics are already optimized, Fritz 10 graphics will run as fast as it's possible already.

You can adjust all that stuff from within Fritz. I am certain you could make DF13 look like DF12.
