About CXG Computachess III (1985) Electronic Chess Computer

CXG COMPUTACHESS III finished equal third in the 2007/2008 - UNDER 1400 ELO CHESS COMPUTER CHAMPIONSHIP. The match for third place against EXCALIBUR CHESS STATION ended in an exciting 5 - 5 tie.   Seventy-two machines were entered into this tournament. Finishing in third place was a fantastic performance!   Especially, when you consider that COMPUTACHESS III was first made in 1985, thus making it twenty years older then the other three semi-finalists.  A total of eight hundred and thirty eight games were played in this Tournament.

It is interesting to observe that twenty-four of the forty-six games played by COMPUTACHESS III, were against four Excalibur machines.  CHESS STATION, NEW YORK TIMES, MODEL 932-ED2 and KINGMASTER II.  COMPUTACHESS III scored an exact fifty percent against these opponents, with twelve points from a total of twenty-four available points.

The processor and speed inside CXG COMPUTACHESS III is identical to the processor and speed inside CXG Enterprise S.
