CESIUS LAUNCHES TRANSPUTER-BASED SCIENTIFIC ACCELERATOR

By CBR Staff Writer

Amidst claims of bringing mainframe and mini performance computing power – specifically a sustained 1MFLOPS and integer calculations at 10 MIPS – to the desk-based MS-DOS micro, Bristol-based Cesius Ltd has launched its new Scientific Accelerator; based on Inmos’ latest T-800 Transputer which has a built-in floating point unit, the product comprises a slot-in board and 16Mb of memory, and comes, for UKP8,500, in C or Fortran versions: the company, which believes that its product will pose a serious threat to the workstation market, also offers turnkey solutions and has a range of scientific software packages.
