CRAY LAUNCHES NEW LOW-END J916 LINE OF UNIX MINISUPERCOMPUTERS

Cray Research Inc has come out with a new line of minisupercomputers that run under Unix and start at $225,000 for a uniprocessor. Called the J916, the machine comes with one to 16 processors and ships early next year. The machine has memory bandwidth of 25.6G-bytes per second. It is rated at 3.2 GFLOPS with 16 processors in double-precision 64-bit work and is designed to operate as a powerful simulation server for large problems that challenge or exhaust the capabilities of workstations. The company says it has received 37 advance orders for the new system – four from the automotive industry, three from customers in aerospace and 12 coming from universities and research centres around the world.
