UPERCOMPUTERS and attached processors provide S familiar forms of vector computing (Fig. 1). Early supercomputers like the CDC Cyber 200 Model 205 [l] and the Cray-1 [ 2 ] combined vector instructions with a powerful scalar CPU. using a specialized, high-bandwidth main-storage interface to raise the performance of the vector unit. Newer supercomputers (the Cray X-MP [3], Fujitsu VP200 [4], Hitachi S810 20 [SI. and KEC SX-2 [6]) have continued on this path. Attached processors like the FPS 164… CONTINUE READING
