The Amdahl 470/V6 was a powerful mainframe computer introduced in 1975 that ran the popular IBM System/360 family of programs. In 1989, the microprocessor-based program Sargon defeated Tony Marslandís chess program Awit running on this type of machine. Even though the 470/V6 was by then over a decade old, this was still a dramatic development and showed the growing power of microcomputers.
