Supercomputer -introduction to microprocessors , Electrical Engineering


The largest  fastest and most  powerful  are called supercomputers. Supercomputers are mainly used for  weather forecasting remote  sensing image processing, biomedical   applications etc. Examples of few supercomputers  are Cray Y-  MP/ 832  Cray 2, NEC SX -3 etc. In   India  we have Cray XMP 14  supercomputer  used by Meteorological department.

Important: Actually  it is difficult to categorise  computers  according to this  classification due to very fast  growth  of technology. For example  latest microcomputer may be  better than  old mini or mainframes.
