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.
