CRAY RESEARCH ENGINEERING GRAPHICS SOFTWARE TO RUN ON DIGITAL'S ALPHA WORKSTATION

 ATLANTA, June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 1993 Digital Equipment Corporation User Society (DECUS) meeting held here this week, Cray Research, Inc. (NYSE: CYR) is demonstrating initial capability of its popular MPGS engineering post-processing software package on the
Digital/Kubota Alpha AXP/Denali graphics workstation. The company also announced plans to make the next release of MPGS (MPGS 5.0) commercially available on the new Alpha AXP/Denali family of workstations, as well as on other UNIX-based graphics workstations, by the end of this year.
 MPGS software exploits distributed computing, which combines the strengths of supercomputers and graphics workstations to solve problems. The software utilizes the supercomputer for compute-intensive calculations and the workstation for 3-D graphic transformations and image rendering.
 MPGS is currently offered through Cray Research on its full supercomputer product line using IBM's RS 6000 and Silicon Graphics,
Inc. workstations for graphics rendering. More than 70 Cray Research
customer sites currently use the MPGS package. Distribution of MPGS


for the additional planned UNIX workstation platforms will also be through Cray Research, company officials said.
 Cray Research creates the most powerful, highest-quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems.
