SRC Company Computer Cray’s Last Computer c1996-98
Uniform memory access across a large processor count. NO memory hierarchy!
Full coherency across all processors.
Hardware allows for large crossbar SMPs with large processor counts.
Programming model is simple and consistent with today’s existing SMPs.
Commodity processors soon to be available allow for a high degree of parallelism on chip.
Heavily banked, traditional Seymour Cray memory design architecture.
Perhaps Seymour Cray will produce a posthumous contribution by demonstrating how to put 1000s of commodity microprocessors together to form a flat shared memory multiprocessor. Certainly the design goal is the right one.
