announced that its Altix 3000 system has outperformed machines
from IBM, Cray and Sun.
"Results submitted March 2 by SGI show that a 64-processor SGI Altix system
bested similarly configured servers from IBM, Cray and Sun on five of the HPC
Challenge (HPCC) Benchmark's list of eight tests. The HPCC benchmark extends
the Linpack benchmark used to determine the well-known Top 500 list of the
