Stardent Computer Inc, Newton, Massachusetts has set September 18 as the date for launch of its new graphical minisupercomputers, which will use up to four MIPS Computer Systems Inc R3000 RISCs for for scalar processing with an Intel 80860-based processor as a vector processing unit. Stardent president Bill Poduska promised in December that new machines would offer the same performance as its Stardent 3000 graphics supercomputer – 128 MIPS and 192 MFLOPS in top-end, four processor configurations – for a third to half price, (CI No 1,327) Kubota Corp’s Kubota Computer Co – which now does all Stardent’s manufacturing, up to now in Japan – last week said that it will begin building a Baby Titan in Sunnyvale, California to get round US import duties (CI No 1,460): the forthcoming low-price machine is presumably the one it has in mind. In typical Japanese fashion, Kubota made no mention of Stardent, implying the machine was all its own work.
