Multiflow Computers Inc, the Branford, Connecticut company specialising in the design and manufacture of very long instruction word parallel minisupercomputers, has replaced its existing Trace 7/200 line with the Trace 7/300 family, which is claimed to offer more than four times the peak performance of the 200s, which were rated at 30 MFLOPS and 107 MIPS. The new machines, which like their predecessors run a variant of Unix, are also claimed to offer five to eight times the performance of similarly-priced DEC VAX 8700 machines. Olivetti & Co SpA markets the Trace machines in Europe. International Data Corp reckons that Multiflow was one of only two minisupercomputer makers to raise its sales last year – to an estimated $15m from $4m the year before – and looks for that to double this year. The other doing well is Convex Computer.
