The chess-playing computer ChipTest was the creation of Carnegie Mellon University doctoral students Feng-Hsiung Hsu, Murray Campbell, Thomas Anantharaman, and Andreas Nowatzyk. ChipTestís hardware could analyze 50,000 moves per second, and the second version, ChipTest-M, could examine 500,000 moves per second. Shown here is the main ChipTest circuit board.
