 CRAY COMPUTER ANNOUNCES INTENTION TO ESTABLISH RELATIONSHIP
 WITH THINKING MACHINES
 COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Cray Computer Corp. (CCC) (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced its intention to establish a cooperative hardware and software relationship with Thinking Machines Corp. centered on the delivery of a demonstration CRAY-3 system and a Thinking Machine's CM-5 system to the National Center of Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colo. in the first quarter of 1993. Delivery of the CM-5 System is contingent upon the availability of FY-93 Federal Computing Facilities funding for NCAR. This action follows up on CCC's previously announced interest in exploring cooperative arrangements with Massively Parallel Processor (MPP) manufacturers and in locating a small number of "demonstration" CRAY-3 systems at appropriate sites.
 While the details of the NCAR project are still subject to agreement between the parties, CCC anticipates a 6 to 12 month evaluation and development project that addresses the optimal interconnection of the two machines for addressing large meteorological applications. Since the CRAY-3 will be functioning as a demonstration and evaluation system, CCC does not expect to receive revenue from NCAR for the CRAY-3 during this period.
 CCC is engaged in the design, development, manufacture and marketing of the CRAY-3 Supercomputer System.
