Dzindzichashvili remarked that no computer engine could see that move (without taking forever), which was at least true at the time (I think this was when Rybka or the first Houdini was #1).

Shot in the dark: does anyone know what game/player I'm talking about? I'm having a hard time finding the video among all the Dzindzichashvili videos.
The most famous example I can think of that would fit this description was a Kasparov exchange sac on b7 in a sveshnikov. Might not be the one you're referring to, but I always remember it as a sacrifice that was deemed "un-computer-makeable".

E.g. Valeri Lilov Sr. isn't shy of bragging about his AGM title
The first time I played a tournament and saw someone with the nameplate AGM I had to look it up and was embarassed for him.

Couldn't it be Kasparov's immortal vs. Topalov? Modern-day engines do find the move, but I believe engines at the time wouldn't find it (or would need 20+ minutes or something)
