Mephisto London 32 Bit ROM Upgrade (1996)

The LONDON program was never officially sold by MEPHISTO who had gone out of business in 1994. This upgrade was made available by Richard Lang in 1996 and is based on his famous Genius 3 program that beat Garry Kasparov in the 1994 Intel World Chess Grand Prix achieving a tournament ELO of 2795 running on a Pentium 100 PC. This was the first time that World Champion Garry Kasparov was at a non-Blitz level by a computer program.

The program was available in three versions: Motorola 68000, 68020 and 68030 microprocessors. This version is the Motorola 68020 32 Bit version. The playing strength is approximately ELO 2430 USCF.

The appropriate ROM upgrade works with MEPHISTO Almeria, Lyon, Portorose, Vancouver, Genius, Berlin 68000 and Berlin Pro.
