 A CRAY RESEARCH SUPERCOMPUTER ACQUIRED BY PREMIER
 GERMAN ENERGY RESEARCH LABORATORY
 EAGAN, Minn., January 13, 1992 -- Cray Research, Inc. (NYSE: CYR), announced today that the Max Planck Society has ordered a CRAY Y-MP 4E supercomputer and has installed the new system at its Institute for Plasma Physics (MPIPP) in Garching, Germany, a suburb of Munich.
 MPIPP is one of the world's premier high energy physics research laboratories. The CRAY Y-MP 4E system, the third Cray Research supercomputer installed at MPIPP, is a replacement for a CRAY X-MP system. It will be primarily used for research in plasma physics, astrophysics and solid state physics. In addition, the system will be used by other Max Planck Institutes for a wide variety of research applications.
 Bryan Little, vice president of Cray Research's European operations, said MPIPP was the company's first customer in Germany, and its second in Europe. "The Max Planck Institute has always been committed to using the most powerful computer resources available, and we are pleased to continue providing them with the leading-edge computational tools to help them do their important energy research," Little said.
 The new CRAY Y-MP 4E system will also be used by MPIPP to move from the Cray Operating System (COS), which the institute has been using since it installed a CRAY-1 system in 1979, to UNICOS, Cray Research's feature-rich and performance-leading UNIX-based operating system.
 Cray Research has 277 systems installed worldwide, including 84 systems located throughout Europe and 20 systems in Germany.
 Cray Research, Inc. creates powerful and high quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems.
