Saitek Brute Force, (Kasparov Brute Force)
a chess computer module by Saitek dedicated for the module systems SciSys Leonardo, Saitek Galileo, and Saitek Renaissance. While the module was early announced with a program by Ulf Rathsman [1], it was finally released in 1992 with a program by Frans Morsch running on a 10 MHz H8 processor. Opposed to the later GK 2100 with only 1 KiB of RAM but same processor and also 32 KiB of ROM, the Brute Force had 257 KiB of RAM, 256 used for the transposition tables [2]. Brute Force played four Aegon Tournaments, Aegon 1993, Aegon 1994, Aegon 1995 and Aegon 1996.
