In February 1996 in Philadelphia, Kasparov played IBM's Deep Blue computer. Deep Blue was able to analyze 50 billion moves in three minutes, Kasparov noted. The Deep Blue computer was a 32-node IBM RS/6000 SP, which used IBM POWER2 Super Chip processors, the single-chip implementation of the POWER2 processor. Each node employed a single microchannel card containing eight dedicated VLSI chess processors, for a total of 256 processors working in tandem. The Deep Blue programming code was written in C and ran under the IBM AIX.
