CRAY IN MAJOR AGREEMENT WITH FRANCE’s INRIA

By CBR Staff Writer

Cray Research Inc is so impressed with software developed at France’s Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique, Inria to optimise vectorised software that it is paying the institute some $100,000 to $120,000 to get hold of the technology and to enter a joint venture. The software is claimed to improve peak performance up to 50%, and will initially be used on the Cray-2 before being transferred to the Cray-3. Inria says sourly that it is because no French company has processor technology to match that of Cray that it has had to collaborate with an American company. Inria’s annual budget is only $7.5m, so the additional cash will be very welcome.
