Steve Chen’s new Supercomputer Sys-tems Inc in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, has lifted the veil a little on its plans, saying that the first computer from the company, set for the early 1990s, will be 100 times fas-ter than today’s fastest machines. These systems will set the new standard in high-performance computing and help to sustain the US lead in science, engineering and applied technologies, it said. Although Chen left Cray Research with personal, non-exclusive licences to technical developments he achieved at Cray, the new firm says it will not be using that technology. The 45-employee firm will ann-ounce details of its financing later; $100m is expected to be needed.
