A year later, Spectrum's Senior Editor Richard Comerford's view of workstations had evolved into two groups - those which aggressively push the performance of the central processor unit (CPU) with enhanced clock rates and reduced-instruction-set computing, and those which use a great number of independent or parallel processors to get the [TABULAR DATA OMITTED] most out of every tick of the clock.
Known as the Numerical Aerodynamic Simulator (NAS), it is driven--for the present--by a Cray 2 supercomputer capable of conducting 250 million computations per second, a number expected to rise to 1 billion when a second central processor is added later this year, and to 10 billion within a decade.
By shifting such large core workloads from a mainframe central processor to low-cost specialty processors, users are able to dramatically reduce the costs of running their core business applications to a mere fraction of what it costs when using central processors.
