Symbolics Inc has won a significant OEM contract from one of the most esoteric computer manufacturers – its Cambridge, Massachusetts neighbour Thinking Machines Inc, which is building massively parallel processors under the name The Connection Machine. The Connection Machine, a single-instruction, multiple data computer, has 16,000 to 64,000 very simple processors, each of which holds data that can be operated on by a single instruction (CI No 180). The Connection Machine runs *Lisp, and Symbolics 3670, 3650 and 3640 Lisp computers are to be used as front-ends to the box.
