ICL spin-out Active Memory Technology Ltd, Reading, Berkshire today announces a major upgrade of the DAP Distributed Array Processor – a quirky single instruction multiple data machine that uses an array of proprietary 1-bit processors. The new version will add an 8-bit floating point co-processor to each 1-bit CPU. The new machine is offered in two models, the DAP/CP8 510C with 1,024 processor combinations and the 610C with 4,096. The company rates the two at 5,000 MIPS, 140 MFLOPS and 20,000 MIPS, 560 MFLOPS peak respectively. The 510C is $205,000 and the 610C, $415,000. The company has shipped 75 DAPS since 1987; applications from existing DAPs will have to be recompiled to be moved to the new models.
