Dear Fellow Chess Player

When computers were first invented just four decades ago few people realized that mankind was witness to the most important single development of our time. Today computers have become freely available and in a few years there will be a computer in every household

Saitek, formerly SciSys has asked me to write a few words to welcome you to the world of chess playing computers.

 

Garry Kasparov

 

Strong program offers aggressive openings and superb positional knowledge.  Especially suited to chess enthusiasts and club players.

 

SAITEK KASPAROV TURBO KING MODEL 320 GAME CHARACTERISTICS

 

  • An irresistible combination of power and value!  Turbo King’s 72K program and high speed processor establish it among the world's best.  Rated at 2150, it is capable of beating over 98% of all chess players.
  • The automatic transposition manager looks after Turbo King’s twin libraries, the giant Opening Book and the easy-to-use User Programmable Library, which stores openings, entire games, or positions.
  • Turbo King’s LCD shows time for both sides and displays other chess information.
  • The 3-color LEDs help your chess analysis.  They show automatically the main continuation, its evaluation of the position and how far ahead it is thinking.
