FLOATING POINT ANSWERS CONVEX, ALLIANT WITH FIVE MODELS

By CBR Staff Writer

Floating Point Systems Inc has added five models to its M64 line of parallel processing minisupercomputers, saying that they are up to 70% faster than those just announced by the likes of Convex Computer. In the most powerful configuration, using 24 parallel disk drives and 31 paral lel processors, the new FPS M64/145 integrated compute servers, incorp orating Floating Point’s Max Algebra Accelerator, are claimed to do up to 341 MFLOPS. Peak perform ance of the new M64/145 models, the C, D, E, F and G, ranges from 33 MFLOPS to 341 MFLOPS, and claimed Argonne National Laboratory Linpack benchmark performance ranges from 24 to 101. Apart from Max, the key contribution to performance is said to be the Fast Matrix Solution Library, which orchestrates all elements of the machine, including the 24 parallel disks and 31 CPUs. The machines are out now at intro ductory prices until June 15 that range between $295,000 and $1.75m.
