CRAY Y-MP C90 SYSTEM INSTALLED, ACCEPTED AT LIVERMORE EAGAN, Minn., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Cray Research, Inc.
(NYSE: CYR) announced today that a CRAY Y-MP C90 supercomputing system has been installed and accepted at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's National Energy Research Supercomputer Center (NERSC), Livermore, Calif.
NERSC director Dr. William McCurdy expressed satisfaction over the 99.56 percent effectiveness level that was achieved by the C90 during the acceptance test period. The rigorous performance test was comprised of a suite of energy science applications that are representative of the NERSC production workload, he said. He said the C90 has already shown a three-fold performance gain over NERSC's CRAY-2 system, and that the new system is now serving NERSC's full complement of about 4,000 local and remote users in the government sector. "This is the first CRAY Y-MP C90 installed in the U.S. at a non- classified customer site," said Cray Research chairman and CEO John A. Rollwagen. "We're pleased that the C90 performed so flawlessly from day one, and that NERSC users will continue to have access to Cray Research's most advanced supercomputer systems." Cray Research creates the most powerful, highest-quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems. -0- 10/5/92 /CONTACT: (Media) Steve Conway 612-683-7133, or (Financial) Bill Gacki, 612-683-7372, both of Cray Research; or (Media) Steve Wampler of Lawrence Livermore 510-423-3107/ (CYR) CO: Cray Research, Inc.; Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's National Energy Research Center ST: Minnesota, California IN: CPR SU:
