The paper traces the development of large multi-transputer systems for high-performance scientific and engineering computing. After defining what we mean by 'supercomputing' in the context of this paper, the past and present state of transputer supercomputing environments is illustrated by a discussion of three specific projects. These are the Esprit 'SuperNode' project or P1085, the Edinburgh Concurrent Supercomputer project and the Victor project at IBM Research in Yorktown Heights. The… Expand
