Conic X, (Conic Experimental, Conic 7013, Conic Korchnoi)
an experimental dedicated chess computer by correspondent Hong Kong manufacturer Conic [1] [2] [3] [4], with a program by Stephen Chen [5]. Conic X played the WMCCC 1981 in Travemünde and became 6th of 8 with 2/7. While the tournament report by Björn Schwarz [6] mentioned Conic Experimental running on a Z 80 A CPU, the soon later released Conic 7013 endorsed by Victor Korchnoi, with magnetic sensory board and apparently a similar program [7], was shipped with a 6502 processor.
