Which would win... Deep Blue or Apple's Chess?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'd love to see a 1998 supercomputer (which year was it? 1997?) against a modern consumer computer (Apple's Dual 1 GHz) in a duel to the death, six games of Chess.
Each entity to be given 30 seconds to consider each move.
Everyone allowed to watch on an Apple stream like we watch Stevenotes on.

And Kasparov is the judge! Nevermind, he didn't want to play at the endof his own defeat, why would he want to watch TWO computers better than him?

Jeez, considering how tough Apple's Chess is even at beginner level, I imagine it would give Deep Blue a good challenge at least. I'm beginning to think it *is* Mini-Blue.

I don't think I am a slouch but it is damn hard.

I am sorry to say that, but even a dual GHZ apple chess have not any chance against deep blue.

deep blue was specifically made for this purpose, and the software is far much more sophistacated. an another point, deep blue was specifically program against Kasparov, in order to destabilize him.

Last night I met a stripper named Deep Blue.

She didn't know how to play chess.

Checkmate.

Yeah, Apple Chess is a bitch, When I ran OSX, I played the game several hours every day for a few weeks, I never beat it once. One time I actually had it on the run, and was mate in 2, but the bastard thing crashed. I have not played it since

Technically they're both super computers. Anybody got any tech specs on Deep Blue? Could it pull the new G4's 15 gigaflops?

I have read only one specification about it : deep blue was able to evaluate 250 millions positions per second, and deep blue has 256 special processors (don't know their specifications).
I dont know how much calculation you need evaluate a position, and i dont know if chess program can be optimized for altivec.

Altivec = Vector Processing Accelleration
Chess = No Graphics Vectors (or very little)

THAT'S NOT THE FRICKEN 6400 IN THAT ONION ARTICLE!

IT'S SHAMEFUL TO MISS SUCH DETAIL IN A PARODY.

About Altivec, a vector is a vector. It doesn't matter what it's used for.

I just realized something... chess doesn't necessarily call for floating point operations. I don't know enough about coding to speculate o whether the G4's main strength would be useful here. Hmm.
