Mini Project for CSE 260 Deepa Veerappan DEEP BLUE Ref.
Introduction Most powerful chess playing computer. Unique combination of innovate software engineering and massive parallel processing power.
Architecture 32 node IBM RS/6000 SP system Uses 30 Power Two Super Chip processors (P2SC) Each node contains 1 micro channel card Each card contains 8 VLSI chess processors Total : 256 chess processors
Deep Blue in Action Analyzes 200,000,000 positions per second (Kasparov evaluates 3 positions per second) Evaluates the current position Integrates chess information Chooses the optimum move Deep Blue beat Kasparov!!!
Current Iteration of RS/6000 SP Named ASCI White 512-node with 8192 processors 12.3 trillion calculations/second (teraflops) 1000 times more powerful than Deep Blue
Applications Molecular dynamics Financial modeling Data mining Weather Forecasting
