New Cray Computer Broadens Potential of High-Performance Computing
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's new Cray XMT was showcased in the Fall 2008 issue of SciDAC Review. The Cray XMT provides an alternative platform for addressing computations that stymie current HPC systems, holding the potential to substantially accelerate data analysis and predictive analytics for many complex challenges in energy, national security, and fundamental science that traditional computing cannot do.
