"the 1,024 processor Origin 3800 allows us (nasa) allows to accomplish in hours jobs that literraly to months or even years on previouse systems"
-> www.sgi.com...

"The agency has a decade, or less, to develop a new ship that safely can deliver astronauts to and from the International Space Station. The only way to get that job done is not to repeat the mistakes of the past, most notably a penchant to reach beyond current technological capabilities to fabricate a shuttle replacement out of a material critics have branded as "unobtainium."

I do not know if we can call it new.


SGI and NASA collaborated to extend the limits of SGI Origin family systems, culminating in the delivery of the first 1,024-processor SGI® Origin® 3800 system in July 2001.

From www.sgi.com...


A little more research at SGI's site showed me that Volvo, Ford, the Amsterdam Academic Computing Center, even the French television has a Origin® 3800, but only NASA and the Amsterdam Academic Computing Center have a 1024 processor system.
