Vintage Video: The Paragon Supercomputer – A Product of Partnership

In this vintage video, Intel launches the Paragon line of supercomputers, a series of massively parallel systems produced in the 1990s. In 1993, Sandia National Laboratories installed an Intel XP/S 140 Paragon supercomputer, which claimed the No. 1 position on the June 1994 TOP500 list. “With 3,680 processors, the system ran the Linpack benchmark at 143.40 Gflop/s. It was the first massively parallel processor supercomputer to be indisputably the fastest system in the world.”
