IBM sells parallel supercomputer

IBM has sold its first parallel supercomputer, a type of machine that may eventually replace the mainframe.

The sale, to Cornell University's Cornell Theory Center, was helped by a grant from New York State, which is increasingly concerned over job losses at the Armonk, N.Y., computer giant. The new machine, called a Power Parallel system, uses a technique known as parallel computing in which a series of microprocessors are linked together.
