11.3 Performance Reports on the iPSC/860

The performance of the iPSC/860 has been studied by many researchers. Both message passing performance and the computational performance have been studied and some of the results are available in the following two reports:

  1. Jack J. Dongarra, ``Performance of Various Computers Using Standard Linear Equations Software," Technical Report CS-89-85, Department of Computer Science, University of Tennessee, April 1994.

  2. Tom H. Dunigan, ``Performance of the Intel iPSC/860 and NCube 6400 Hypercubes," Technical Report ORNL/TM-11790, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, March, 1991.
