GP MIMD Esprit consortium members Parsys Ltd, Meiko Scientific Ltd and Telmat Informatique SA say they are about to bring to market a new parallel computer as an offshoot of the GP MIMD general purpose supercomputing project. No details have been confirmed regarding the performance of the system, but the three partners have said that the machine, which is already in use in some pre-launch sites, is based on Intel 80860, Sparc and Inmos Ltd Transputer processors. The new parallel multiple instruction multiple data supercomputer features the first implementation of the GP MIMD Application Support Interface, being developed as part of the Esprit initiative. This provides a common software environment for applications across machines ranging from personal computers to parallel supercomputers. Full details are expected to be out soon.
