Cray Research Inc may or may not have a team looking at the concept of a hypercomputer with hundreds of processors for the mid-1990s: John Rollwagen, president said it had, Seymour said the announcement was premature, and poured cold water on the idea: at all events, the Cray Y-MP is going better than expected, with orders for six for delivery next year, and Cray now reckons it may get more of the things away in 1989 than the dozen it had been looking at – but although the value of unit sales is rising, more machines are being leased, which tends to flatten the growth in revenue.
