Underlining IBM’s determination to get into supercomputing in a big way, the company is complementing its investment in Steve Chen’s new company with a joint venture with the US Los Alamos National Laboratory to develop a second generation of the 3090 Vector Facility. It is installing a 3090-200E with Vector Facilities fitted at the New Mexico lab, which will collaborate with IBM on development of a much more powerful version of the Vector – presumably for Summit. IBM and Los Alamos worked in the 1960s on technology for the 360/90 and 370/195 scientific mainframes, but have not worked together since until now.
