Also sharpening up its image processing skills, Sumisho Electronics Systems, a subsidiary of Sumitomo Corp, has acquired Japanese distribution rights to AT&T Co’s Pixel Machine remember it? We wrote about it in July and August last year (CI Nos 734, 740), and it uses up to 82 of the company’s DSP 32 signal processors to create what AT&T reckons is the world’s fastest mini-supercomputer, with a speed of 640MFLOPS (down from 800 16 months ago!); it can be used almost real-time to produce complicated images and Sumisho expects the PXM 900 to take market share away from the other mini-supercomputers such as Stellar Computer’s GS1000, sold by both Mitsui and Asahi Chemical; the nine models in the series sell for from $81,300 to $244,000.
