Supercomputer Memory Chip

from Cray Inc.

Regular price $16.00

Supercomputers were introduced in the 1960s, and for several decades the fastest were made by Seymour Cray, the father of supercomputing, at Control Data Corporation (CDC).

One such computer was the Cray/CDC Cyber Model 170 supercomputer, designed by Seymour Cray in the 1970s. We were able to acquire a memory bank that belonged to this computer from a collector and painstakingly extract each component so more people could own and a piece of computing history.

Upon implementation, this chip was part of one of the smartest/fastest/largest computers in the world, pushing the limits of computational power, and was used by institutions that needed to solve some of the world's biggest problems. This computer was the optimal choice for scientific and mathematically intensive computing and was used for modeling fluid flow, material science stress analysis, electrochemical machining analysis, probabilistic analysis, energy and academic computing, radiation shielding modeling, and other applications.
