The computer that claimed to beat Gary Kasparov in a chess match between man and machine uses a special VLSI chip and that will be extended to commercial machines, the company said.
But Kasparov, who claimed at the time that it was unfair that he had lost the series of matches, was later backed up by the senior engineer on the project who agreed last spring that the match was not equal.
He said then that it would be at least 18 months until Deep Blue could beat Kasparov fair and square.
