Floating Point Systems Inc is over-egging the pudding a bit but its Transputer-based T100 scientific computer needs all the help it can get: last week the company claimed that in image processing it achieved a two-dimensional convolution of 579 Mflops, about three times the speed of a Cray X-MP/12 (CI No 617) – now the company says it has achieved a wave equation performance benchmark of 232 MFlops on a T 100 Supercomputer, positioning it at about 16% faster than the theoretical speed of a Cray X-MP/12 running highly optimised code, according to the company; the computational wave equation is widely used in synthetic seismic research, and in representations of supersonic fluid simulation and represents simulation of a wave in a two-dimensional domain where 1,300m operations were done in 5.6 seconds.
