Aoyama Gakuin, a major private university in Tokyo has installed an NEC Corp SX supercomputer at its Information Sciences Research Centre, where it will support engineering workstations at three other campuses: the machine is a low-end SX1EA, with peak performance of 330MFLOPS, and 960Mb main memory; the SX is of course compatible with NEC’s Honeywell Bull-derived general purpose mainframes, and the machine is to replace the university’s current ACOS 950; other machines connected in a local network spanning three campuses are Sun-4, NEC 4800 workstations, a Symbolics machine running LISP, a Fujitsu Facom 730-6 mid-range mainframe running economic model simulations, and various sub-networks of personal computers; the SX will also connect to Tokyo University’s computing centre and to overseas technical databases.
