Sunnyvale, California-based MasPar Computer Corp has launched a HiPPI High-Performance Parallel Interface input-output controller for its MP-1 and MP-2 massively parallel machines, and using it, showed a cluster of MP-1s delivering up to 25 GFLOPS. The company reports that the capability was developed in part because the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland already has a 16,384-processor MP-1 and needed even more power. It demonstrated a computational fluid dynamics application on four clustered MP-2 2216 systems at Supercomputing ’93 in Portland, Oregon, claiming 90% efficiency. The HiPPI controller is $50,000, and MasPar says it has shipped 40.
