Gordon Bell, father of the DEC VAX range now president of research and development at Ardent Computer, did the honours at yesterday’s UK intro of the Titan graphics supercomputer. Last month saw the US launch (CI No 879) of the 64-bit parallel vector machine and Ardent claims some 50 purchase commitments from customers, 10 of them in Europe. First ships begin next month in the US and June in the UK. European customers are in the fluid dynamics and computational chemistry fields. BioDesign, Wavefront Technologies, Princeton University and Cham Ltd have joined the Ardent Application Alliance to put software on Titan.
