HITACHI REVEALS PLANS FOR PARALLEL PRECISION ARCHITECTURE MACHINE

By CBR Staff Writer

Treading on eggshells as it seeks to weave a politically acceptable path between its long-standing RISC agreements with Hewlett-Packard Co and its new alliance with IBM Corp on Power RISC and possibly PowerPC, Hitachi Ltd says it will use Precision Architecture for parallel machines for the scientific market, and IBM’s Powerparallels for the commercial market. In the former arena, it has announced plans to develop a 1,000-MIPS super-parallel processor, in conjunction with the research department of Japan’s Tsukuba University. The machine is expected to be 10 times faster than Hitachi’s current servers sourced from Hewlett and is being designed to deliver 300 GFLOPS with a launch later this year in the plan.
