CRAY RESEARCH ANNOUNCES WORKSTATION VERSION OF POPULAR UNICHEM PRODUCT

 EAGAN, Minn., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Cray Research (NYSE: CYR) today announced the availability of a workstation version of the company's UniChem molecular modeling program originally designed for its supercomputers. This is the first time Cray Research has made its supercomputer software available on workstations, the company said.
 The new software is initially available on Silicon Graphics workstations and will be available on most UNIX-based workstations later this year, the company said. It has the same look and feel as UniChem for Cray Research supercomputers and contains all the same features as the supercomputer version, which was developed by a Cray Research-led consortium of leading chemical and pharmaceutical companies.
 With more than 35 copies of the supercomputer version of UniChem software in use worldwide at leading universities, government research laboratories, and chemical, pharmaceutical and petroleum companies, the software has been a strong-selling product for Cray Research.
 "With UniChem on the workstation, users can utilize the processing power on their desktop, and when their problems become so large it's not practical for the desktop, they have a transparent transition to supercomputing," said Sara Graffunder, director of applications software development for Cray Research.
 UniChem allows researchers to edplore complex molecular systems in order to develop new pharmaceuticals, materials and catalysts, he said. Commercial prices for the complete package start at $45,000 for low-end workstations.
 Cray Research creates the most powerful, highest quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems.
