Cray scales to over 100 petaflops with 'Cascade' XC30 behemoth

Cray scales to over 100 petaflops with 'Cascade' XC30 behemoth 
Cray was going to take the work it had done on its multistreaming vector processors and massively multithreaded ThreadStorm processors and create a new processor of its own to go along with the Aries interconnect.
"We eventually made the tough decision to focus on the interconnect," says Bolding. And that has clearly paid off, and as it turns out, has made it easier for Cray to embrace GPU and x86 coprocessors like Nvidia's Tesla and Intel's Xeon Phi as adjunct and more efficient compute engines alongside x86 processors inside its systems.
