FUJITSU STARTS WORK ON 16 GFLOPS VP SUPERCOMPUTER

By CBR Staff Writer

Fujitsu Ltd is hotting up the supercomputer battle for supremacy with announcement of plans to develop a four-processor parallel processing version of its IBM-compatible 4 GFLOPS VP2600 machine, which it hopes will deliver 16 GFLOPS at peak, in theory making it the most powerful in the world. The new machine is slated for announcement in the middle of next year, and is likely eventually to be marketed by Amdahl Corp and Siemens AG. The Fujitsu effort is being backed by the Ministry of International Trade & Industry. NEC Corp meanwhile is working on what it claims will be the world’s fastest uniprocessor supercomputer.
