SGI Busts into Linux with 64-Processors
Linux Planet tells us about
SGI's new Altix 3000.
"SGI, which has long been in the business of high-performance computing for technical and media clients with its IRIX operating system on MIPS processors, decided that it would capitalize on the same architecture the company uses to create 1,024-processor IRIX Origin 3000 servers. This architecture, known as NUMAlink, allows data to be shared between separate machines with only a negligible performance hit, compared to multiple processors on the same machine."
