Cray announced today that the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has taken delivery of the first Cray XMT supercomputer (or at least the first publicly admitted one).

The XMT processors can execute 128 threads in hardware, which make sthe system ideal for many data intensive computing applications. The XMT is a follow on to Cray’s previous MTA systems, of which only a few were ever sold.
