Mini Project for CSE 260 Deepa Veerappan DEEP BLUE Ref. http://www.research.ibm.com/deepblue
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
