Here, I'd like to add that Deep Blue consist of 30 nodes, each node composed with 16 Chess Chips (FPGA chips), so 480 Chess Chips overall.
This system scored a perf around 2800 Elo in 1996-1997.
For reference, the current strength of Stockfish 9 on 1 core Athlon 64 X2 2.4 GHz is around 3370 (570 Elo over Deep Blue).
Vince, this comparison makes little sense because it is based on two fallacies.
The first one is comparing Deep Blue's performance rating
to SF9's Elo rating; the other is comparing a(n imaginary) FIDE rating (Deep Blue never had one) to CCRL ratings. Elo ratings are only valid for players in the same playing pool.
DB only ever played Kasparov - six games, error bars measuring in hundreds; Kasparov played (also only six games with resultant huge error bars) a Deep Junior version that is two years older than the oldest Junior version on our lists, and of course that version would be too low-rated to ever get a crack at playing SF9 even if we had it. You could try and extrapolate DJ 2003's rating from the subsequent versions and other sources but the connection between DB and SF9, if one can be said to exist at all, is nebulous at best. With all the extrapolation, guesses and error margins taken into account you'd be as justified in quoting a 1000 Elo or a 150 Elo difference as quoting your 570 Elo.

I notice that Chess Genius by Richard Lang has been mentioned in this thread.
Does anyone know what the elo is for the latest PC version 7.2?
Is there a reason it is not included in the CCRL list?
I suppose the reason it's not on CCRL is that it runs in its own proprietary GUI only, being neither UCI- nor CECP-compliant. Still, with CEGT having tested it, perhaps it's only a matter of time of it getting listed on CCRL as well.
