Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"The lecture introduces the architectural and technological consideations for development of supercomputer systems. peformance is ahvieved by reducing the time to process any given quantity of data; this is done by inceasing the number of concurrently processed data items, and by shortening the machine cycle rquired to perform that processing. The NEC SX-3 R Supercomputer is used as an example.
Chip design, packaging and interrconnects, and cooling are presented, followed by a discussion of architectuarl issues such as scalar performance, instruction control, vector architectural features, parallel architectural features, and multiprocessor."
